Alongside the new Lamborghini Huracan Performante at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 sits the Lamborghini Aventador S. The facelift Aventador model gets its European debut at Geneva. We took a closer look at the show car!
The Lamborghini Aventador S retains the 6.5 litre naturally aspirated V12 engine but offers an additional 40 hp over its predecessor. Peak power is now 740 hp, with 690 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The key elements of the performance improvements are the four-wheel drive system, the new active suspension system, new four-wheel steering system and the new EGO driving mode.
The design of the new Aventador S is clearly modern Lamborghini. Certain elements of the design are intended to evoke memories of previous iconic Lamborghini models. The most evident is the rear wheel arch with the extreme look of the original Countach.
At the front, there is a new nose and longer front splitter. The rear gets a new diffuser, available in black or in carbon fibre. Three single exhaust outlets give a new triangular shaped look to the Aventador S. An active rear wing is included with three moveable positions. Overall, front downforce is up by 130%, rear downforce by 50% and drag by 400%.
