New Aventador S makes real life debut

More of a mid-life cycle upgrade, bump in HP and exterior changes. Not sure how I feel about the "fangs".

Quote:
May we humbly present to you the brand new Lamborghini Aventador S. It is here, it is yellow, and it is fast. We are informed it represents a new benchmark for the Aventador, and thus we must take you through its myriad updates.

First up, and most importantly, is more power. That 6.5-litre V12 now kicks out 730bhp - up from the ‘regular’ Aventador’s 691bhp, but a fraction down on the madcap Aventador SV’s 740bhp - thanks to optimised valve timing.

The redline has been shifted up to 8,500rpm for good measure, and whereso delivered to all four wheels through that seven-speed gearbox, will kick the Lambo from 0-62mph in 2.9s and onto a top speed of 217mph. The exhaust is also 20 per cent lighter than before, which of course, means all sorts of good things related to noise.

Oh yes, all four wheels. The next most important update to this Lambo is the four-wheel-steering system we first saw on the banzai Centenario; the first time it’s been put on a production Lambo. The front axle gets Lambo’s dynamic steering setup, but at the rear there are two separate actuators with five-millisecond-quick adjustments, responding to the driver’s steering input.

At low speeds, the front wheels face in the opposite direction to the rears, to virtually reduce the wheelbase, while at high speeds, all wheels have the same angle for better stability. When we tested it on a prototype SV with this RWS system - on a track, naturally - we said at the time that it “makes a huge difference to the car’s stability, predictability and so your confidence, commitment and speed grow.” Good.

This S also gets updated suspension with revised kinematics for that four-wheel-steer tech, new geometry, a new ‘real-time’ variable damping system and new rear springs. The ESC has also been recalibrated to be faster, and is said to provide “improved adhesion detection” to help maximise grip in a variety of conditions. Fear not, though: the permanent four-wheel-drive setup has been retuned to cope with the rear-wheel-steer (do keep up), while still allowing “oversteer behaviour and a sporty, safe drive”. Phew.

There’s also a ‘Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva’ (LDVA) control unit, to manage all of the new systems. Essentially it’s the Aventador S’s Big Brain, using sensors all over the car to determine the best set-up for all conditions. You can choose from four chassis modes that changes the torque/ESC interface - Sport, Strada, Corsa and Ego (the latter being of course, individual). It’s Sport you want, as that sends 90 per cent of the torque to the rear for full on helmsmithery.

The new tyres come courtesy of Pirelli (P Zeros), while you get carbon ceramic brakes as standard (400mm up front, 380mm at the back). Aventador fans will no doubt spot the new nose and bigger front splitter, two new air ducts in the front bumper, a new black rear diffuser with fins, and the three single exit exhausts tips. All in, there’s 130 per cent more front downforce than the regular Aventador, with more than 50 per cent with the wing set to max attack, and 400 per cent in low drag mode.

Woah. Step inside, and you’ll notice a new TFT digital dash, Apple CarPlay as standard, and the option of adding a telemetry system (lap times, trip data and so forth). There’s also the option of emptying your wallet in Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customisation programme. Spec wisely, young Jedi…

When it lands in the UK next year, it’ll cost £225,955 (without tax). Considering all the SVs have sold out, and the Centenario is a no-go for you, perhaps this is the Aventador you need...

I honestly feel mixed about Lambo's design the last few gens.

They have this tendency to look great on first sight, but it just goes down from there and doesn't age all that well.

Take Gallardo/Murcielago as example... it was super aggressive when I saw it, but for now, they feel so dated and I honestly wouldn't touch it even though I've been a long time Lambo fans while all my F&F tend to like Ferrari.

This hate/love I have with Lambo the reason why when my uncle was in the market for a supercar to celebrate his first grandson (secret gift for my cousin... lucky bastard ), I told him to go check out Lambo first... but after hitting both dealership a few times with him, I told him to get a Ferrari F12.

He was able to get a great deal from a private seller in Ontario. Taking delivery some time next month I think

I still think the merci sv is the prettiest lambo in the last few generations. I think it's a timeless design

I don't follow Lambos much but doesn't it look basically the same as everything else they're come out with in the last ~13 years (starting with the Gallardo)?

for something with so many hard angles, the SV has aged quite well

I thought they would introduce a dual clutch transmission... I heard the one they have currently is awful

Why isn't Lamborghini's engineers putting the Huracan's double clutch transmission into the Aventador S?

I would think that the smoother shifting from the double clutch would outweigh any weight gains from that transmission compared to the single clutch ISR transmission.

Could be because Aventador S might end up out performing an Aventador SV?
Also I would feel that any owner who purchased an Aventador SV would probably be not happy if an aventador S beat their SV.

The chassis on the Aventador can't handle a dual clutch so that's the reason why the Aventador will never see a dual clutch.

Side note, the first test drive of the Huracan Performante is out. Looks like a beast and glad I got a deposit on it because I think this is the Lambo to buy.

Harvey, went by Van Lambo yesterday to take a peek through the window and saw a huracan with an aggressive Italian coloured front splitter and different accents. Special edition or what? If you happen to have seen it that is

That's the OEM aftermarket kit from Lambo. Imo it looks like crap and it cost like $15k+ and that doesn't include the almost $20k centre lock wheels lol.

I think the huracan is the better looking lambo by a fair bit.
