Lamborghini is known for building more special series from the same base product and that was the case with the Aventador which, in 2017, was introduced in the S-version with 740 hp.
After it was taken over by the Volkswagen Group, the Lamborghini car-maker started to increase its model range and to diversify each and every model it had on its stable. After six years since it was launched the Aventador received an important upgrade with the S version.
The exterior design was modified to improve the aerodynamics and the aggressive look. In the front, a new spoiler with body-color and carbon-fiber elements were blended in. From the side, the redesigned rear wheel arch resembled the one from the Countach. In the rear, the center-mounted exhaust was comprised of three angular-shaped pipes into a big, hexagonal, shape. A rear diffuser was installed under the bumper to reduce the ground effect.
The interior was not very much changed. It still looked like a cockpit from a fighter-jet, with toggle switches and a flap above the engine start button. The bucket-seats were covered in leather and bolstered for side support. The infotainment unit was little upgraded from the original, 2011, Aventador.
The most important was the 6.5-liter V12 engine placed in front of the rear axle. It was mated to a standard Lamborghini lightweight Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) 7-speed shifting system. The all-wheel-drive and all-wheel-steering super-car was able to hit the 60 mph (96 kph) in under three seconds.
