The new Lamborghini aventador with its massive 6.5 liter V12 produces 700 bhp , 690 Nm of torque and comes with permanent all wheel drive system. The engine can be seen from the outside through a transparent cover that is available as an option. As usual the name Aventador is taken from a bull that stood for its courage in the bullring in Zaragoza.
It has an all new Aluminum and carbon fiber light weight body that provides strength and rigidity. As a result it weighs only 1,650 kilograms (3637 lbs) which is phenomenal for V12 engine sports car. It comes equipped with a new automatic gearbox and according to Lamborghini gear changes are executed faster than in any gearbox, either manual or automatic and are lighter than dual clutch unit. The body of aventador has useful vents that open and close depending upon outside temperature and cooling needs.
The new supercar from Lamborghini can perform 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and can go upto a maximum speed of 350 kph (217 mph). The stability of this supercar at high speed is controlled by innovative spoilers first seen in Murcielago. The spoiler wings are at the back of the body which can move in three directions to provide adequate down force keeping the beast stable during high speed.
The interiors are fresh and innovative. The cockpit clearly stands out and feels like you are inside an advanced fighter jet console with a start button that is designed based on missile launch trigger. The instrumentation is displayed on a TFT screen and has indicators that simulate a traditional needle. There is another screen on the centre console for audio functions and browsing. A round knob on the console and buttons are very similar to Audi MMI system.
