Lamborghini has launched the latest generation of its V12 flagship model called the Aventador S in India, which receives not just a visual update, but plenty of new technologies and features as well.
In less than two months of its international launch, the new model has greeted Indian shores today and, which will replace the standard Aventador, is priced at Rs 5.01 crore, ex-showroom. Visually, the Aventador S integrates aerodynamic bodywork derived from the top-of-the-line SV model, which includes a new front and rear end.
Unsurprisingly the 6.5 litre V12 engine now outputs 740 hp at 8,400 rpm and 690 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm, which is 40 hp more than its predecessor. It does a 0-100sprint in 2.9 seconds and has a 349kph top speed, thanks to the tweaked VVT (Variable Valve Timing) and VIS (Variable Intake System), as well as increase the maximum engine revs from 8,350 to 8,500 rpm. The Aventador S comes with a seven-speed gearbox. Power to weight ratio has also improved, rated as 469hp/ton.
Other handling enhancements include an updated version of Lamborghini’s pushrod and magneto-rheological suspension to accommodate the new four-wheel steering system, improved ESC package, new rear springs and variable damping system, as well as redeveloped, bespoke Pirelli P Zero tyres. Carbon ceramic brakes still come as standard, and are capable of stopping the car from 100 km/h to a standstill in just 31 metres.
Drivers also get to choose from four driving modes – Strada, Sport, Corsa and the newly-added Ego. The latter is a customisable mode, allowing owners to set their preferred conditions for the car’s traction, steering and suspension systems that best suits his or her driving ego/skills. The cabin gains a new TFT touchscreen with Apple CarPlay comes as a standard specification, allowing the cockpit’s occupants to manage voice activated communications and entertainment from personal Apple devices.
