A fast and mean car is what Lamborghini has been always known for. Values which the company has preserved right from its starting days. The car in question, the Aventador was introduced by Lamborghini as a replacement of the very desirable Murcielago. Like most of the Lamborghini cars, even this one has been named after a bull and a fighting one at that. When in stages of conceptualization, this car was initially named as the LP 700-4. The LP as every one knows stands for Longitudinal Posteriore and this signifies the position of the engine whereas the 4 at the end stands for four wheel drive.
Mean looks is what the Lamborghini Aventador is known for and this very mean looks is what the buyers in this segment would understand the Aventador with. Boeing in which Volkswagen has some stakes was also instrumental in developing the body of the Lamborghini Aventador. The entire body is made up of reinforced carbon fibre material. The chassis has also been highly developed so much so that it weighs in only at 376 kgs while at the same time giving twice more rigidity and strength than the Murcielago platform. The air intake fins of this car are also very aggressive in their looks while the rear end of the car promises to be very futuristic in its approach. The quartet of tail pipes is definitely eye catching as well. The chassis has also been highly developed so much so that it weighs in only at 376 kgs while at the same time giving twice more rigidity and strength than the Murcielago platform.
The weight savings which resulted out of all these usage of carbon fiber means that the Aventador is a swift footed thing. It achieves 0-100 kmph in only 2.9 seconds. High leather interiors with an all opulent feel plus complete digital instrument cluster where mph can be converted into kmph and mpg into kmpl, at the flick of a button. Soft plastic and the highest quality Multi Media Interface or MMI system is also provided. An all new 6.5 liter V12 engine also makes its debut for the Lamborghini Aventador in India and this engine makes 700 Bhp of power and 691 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The transmission is a robotized Independent Shifting Rod or ISR, which has been specifically designed for Lamborghini and mimics the shifts of an F1 gearbox. An electronic control system from Haldex works the part of the 4 wheel drivetrain. The 19 inch front tyres and the 20 inchers at the rear act the part of giving this car a mean look. The maximum speed that one can stretch this car is to 350 kmph.
The brake calipers of this car are painted black and needless to say, Lamborghini have stressed high on this part. After all, who would want a car which has got power but no proper reining? The gross weight of this car is 1457 kgs. The Aventador’s engine is also the first all new engine developed by Lamborghini after the one in the Countach. The price of the Lamborghini Aventador stands at Rs 4 crores and only ten cars have been allotted for India so far.
