Lamborghini extended its list of offerings in the Indian market with the launch of Aventador S. The new supercar has been priced at INR 5.01 Crore. You would’ve probably read our launch report. Visually, the S moniker adds more aggressively sculpted, as well as more aerodynamic front and rear bumpers. The new S model will inherit the naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine from the Aventador family, but it has been tuned to deliver 40 HP more than the outgoing model, uplifting the output to 740 HP.
This time, we have the official release by Automobili Lamborghini India.:
Automobili Lamborghini India, today launched the Lamborghini Aventador S in India. The new Lamborghini Aventador S represents a new era of aerodynamic design, redeveloped suspension, increased power and new driving dynamics. The ‘S’ is the suffix of previous enhanced Lamborghini models and defines a new benchmark for the V12 Lamborghini.
Mr. Sharad Agarwal, Head of Automobili Lamborghini India said, “This next generation of the V12 Lamborghini flagship is for customers who appreciate the Italian attributes of our brand which is design and technological leadership. With the launch of the Aventador S, Lamborghini has surpassed another significant milestone in enhancing performance in the super sports car segment. The perfect synchronization of a pure grandiose design, cutting-edge technology and excellent driving dynamics in the Aventador S takes this car to a new level.”
The design of the new Aventador S clearly indicates the new Aventador generation. The Aventador S design results in significantly enhanced aerodynamic performance. It features a number of exterior developments, particularly in front and rear, while its profile remains clearly an Aventador. Every modified component is redesigned for a purpose, achieving maximum aerodynamic efficiency while accenting the Aventador’s complex, muscular dynamism. Furthermore, Lamborghini Centro Stile has intelligently integrated certain elements of past icons, such as the lines of rear wheel arches reminiscent of the original Countach.
The Aventador S allows the driver to select between four different driving modes; Four-wheel drive, new active suspension, new four-wheel steering system and the new EGO driving mode : STRADA, SPORT, CORSA and the new EGO mode, which influence the behavior of traction (engine, gearbox, 4WD), steering (LRS, LDS, Servotronic) and suspension (LMS).
STRADA stands for maximum comfort and daily use. SPORT provides a sporty, rear-wheel drive feel and CORSA is suitable for maximum track performance. EGO is the new driving mode option. This provides several additional and individual set-up profiles, customizable by the driver, selecting his preferred criteria for traction, steering and suspension within the STRADA, SPORT and CORSA settings. All driving modes have been recalibrated in the Aventador S, improving ESC integration with all-wheel drive and the interface between engine torque management system and traction control reaction.
The Lamborghini Aventador’s naturally aspirated twelve cylinder, 6.5 liter engine outputs an additional 40 hp over its predecessor, to a maximum 740 hp, with a 690 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. To achieve the power increase, both VVT (Variable Valve Timing) and VIS (Variable Intake System) have been optimized in order to obtain an enriched torque curve. Additionally, the maximum engine revs have been increased from 8,350 to 8,500 rpm. A dry weight of just 1,575 kg provides a weight-to-power ratio of just 2.13 kg/hp. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is reached in 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 350 km/h. Transmission is provided by Lamborghini’s lightweight Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) 7-speed shifting system, providing robotized gear shifts in up to 50 milliseconds.
The Aventador S adopts a new exhaust system developed as the result of a significant R&D project. More than 20% lighter than its predecessor and the product of testing multiple configurations, the results are an enhanced Lamborghini sound and resonance from the already inimitable V12 aspirated engine, with the three single pipe outlets at the rear of the Aventador S a visual reminder of the new exhaust system.
The Aventador S sits on a new, specially developed set of Pirelli P Zero tires. Designed to optimize steering, traction, lane changes and braking efficiency, the tires are specifically designed to respond to the dynamic behavior induced by the Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering, ensuring handling consistency and driver feedback.
The cockpit of the Aventador S brings new functionality and refinement. A new TFT digital dashboard can be customized according to the driver’s preferences, with different kombi screens for STRADA, SPORT and CORSA in conjunction with the EGO mode.
The interior specification of the Aventador S is virtually limitless through Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customization program.
Aventador S price starts at INR 5.01 crores (Ex-showroom)
