Lamborghini Unveils The Aventador S In India, At Rs 5.01 Crore

Volkswagen Group owned, Italian supercar manufacturer Automobili Lamborghini in an effort to further expand its line-up in India has introduced a scaled-up version of its flagship Aventador, the Aventador S LP 740-4. The new model, priced at Rs 5.01 Crore (ex-showroom New Delhi) replaces the standard Aventador which came with a price tag of Rs 4.32 crore. The 'S" in the new Aventador S marks a sharper styling, improved design, better aerodynamics and a revamped V12 engine.


The heart of the Aventador S is the naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine that belts out 740 bhp as compared to the 691 bhp of the regular Aventador. Running at 8500 rpm it develops a torque of 690 Nm and sends the power to all of the four wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. All these mechanicals help the extreme super sports car to zoom off from a standstill 0 to 100 Kmph within just 2.9 seconds before hitting the rated top speed of 350 Kmph. Braking is pretty efficient by the carbon-ceramic brakes, with the 100-0 being achieved in just 30 meters. Another unique feature of the Aventador S is the four-wheel steering or the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) which enhances lateral control and makes the supercar more agile at corners by turning the rear wheels in opposite direction at low speeds and in the same direction at high speed. Driving modes includes a new entrant dubbed as 'Ego' along with the existing three- Strada, Sport, and Corsa. The new mode lets the driver customize the car's individual suspension and engine's response settings according to his/her need.


The supercar's body is fortified with monocoque in carbon fiber chassis resulting in a dry weight of just 1,575 kg and a weight-to-power ratio of 2.13 kg/hp. Body parts like engine bonnet, spoiler, rear air inlets are also made of carbon fiber while the other panels being carved out of aluminum and synthetic materials. The Aventador S runs on new multi-spoke alloys shod Pirelli P Zero tires which are specially developed to improve steering, traction, lane changes and braking efficiency ensuring handling consistency.


The interiors of the new Aventador S still features the jet-fighter inspired cockpit of the standard Aventador. The analog dials in the instrument panel have been being replaced by an interactive TFT LCD display with LED lighting system that changes layout based on the driving mode selected by the driver. Lamborghini is also offering tons of options to customize the car's interior through its personalisation division.


Lamborghini launched the Aventador S globally in December 2016 and it has arrived in India within a couple of months of its global launch which marks an aggressive marketing strategy of the Italian carmaker. It is currently the market leader in the extreme super sports car segment enjoying a 40% share selling 70 units, the last year. Sharad Agarwal, Lamborghini India head revealed his further plans to take the overall share of the Aventador family to 25% from the present 10%, in their portfolio. He also added that they are sold for the first year.
