Track Testing the New Lamborghini Aventador S

February 4th, 2017

In an effort to keep pace in the ever evolving world of supercars, Lamborghini has introduced the all new Lamborghini Aventador S. Recent offerings from Ferrari and McLaren have made it necessary for Lamborghini to up the ante in the Aventador lineup. That brings us to the “S” version.

In addition to an exterior face lift, the Aventador S also benefits from a more powerful engine, improved steering, and a universal controller that overlaps all of the car’s major components together for a much smoother and more refined driving experience. The test-driver refers to the new version S as a true driver’s car and no longer just a “pose-mobile.”

The reliable 6.5-liter V12 engine has been tweaked to produce 730hp and built to withstand an astonishing 8,500 RPM redline. A new four-wheel steering system makes the S version more responsive and manageable than ever. Implementing a single master electronic controller (to manage all electrical systems) yields a seamless and sophisticated driving experience that is unrivalled in the automotive industry. The introduction of the Lamborghini Aventador S package makes this one of the most practical supercars ever produced in terms of its ability to be driven regularly on the street. At a starting price of around $350K, it may be one of the best deals in a supercar as well.
