THE LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR
The Aventador is currently the company’s flagship car, and it’s one of the craziest cars to come out of Italy. The Supercar was launched on the 28th of February, 2011, at the Geneva Motor Show. The Aventador is based on a 6.5L naturally aspirated V12 mid-engine platform, and in the standard car, it produces 690 horsepower and 690N.m of torque.
It has a seven-speed single-clutch automated manual gearbox which is quite outdated for the car, but it does the job of propelling this raging bull from a standstill to 100 km/hr in 3 seconds flat and has a top speed of up to 220 miles per hour. It comes either in coupe or roadster form. The starting price for the car is $236,400 before taxes and options.
Over the years, Lamborghini kept on updating its model by releasing hardcore versions.
They came up with the Aventador SV(Superveloce), which had more power than the base car and a redesigned bodywork.
They raised the glorious V12’s power output to 750 horsepower and still 690 N.m of tortue. It could do 0-100 km/hr in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 220mph. When it launched, its starting price was $497,895 before taxes.
In 2019, Lamborghini blew everyone’s mind by releasing the most hardcore and track-focused version of the Aventador. The SVJ.
This instantly became an eye-opener for car collectors all around the world as this car was limited in production.
Its MSRP was $517,770, but now due to car shortage and inflation, a used one could go for anything over $800,000.
If you’re in the market for an Aventador, there are many things to consider.
The Aventador is a car I’d advise not to daily use because it’s track-oriented, so it can get really uncomfortable on bad roads due to stiffened suspension, plus there’s hardly any storage space. Visibility is another issue because of how wide and long it is and how short the windscreen is.
People 6ft and above might struggle for head and legroom, and depending on how you’re built, supercars, in general, most especially hypercars, are really hard to get into.
Apart from the things aforementioned, the car is a great car and a good investment with the way the car market is going. Plus, who wouldn’t want to wake up to the sound of an astonishing V12?
The Aventador is indeed a great car from the brand. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued but fears not, as Lamborghini has already started testing a new prototype that would replace the Aventador.
It’s coming with a hybrid platform and is still retaining the V12.
It’s expected to go on sale in 2023.
