Lamborghini has introduced the facelifted version of Aventador S in India at a price tag of Rs 5.01 Crore (ex-showroom, India). This model comes with cosmetic changes, enhanced performance and some new features.
The Aventador S features an entirely new front bumper, rear bumper, diffusers and air intakes. All the changes have been made with only one aim in mind: to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency. The new front splitter and diffuser account for 130 per cent more downforce. Apart from a new TFT display for the instrument cluster, the interiors remain unchanged. The car is powered by the same naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine. However, the power output has been increased to 740PS from 700, with a peak torque of 690Nm. The engine has been mated to a seven-speed single-clutch gearbox which powers all four wheels and propels it from 0 to 100kmph in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 350kmph.
The Aventador S is the first production Lamborghini to feature four-wheel steering. While at low speeds the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction compared to the front (up to 3 degrees), at high speeds they turn in the same direction (up to 1.5 degrees). This provides a shorter turning radius at low speed and better cornering ability at high speeds.
