Kanye West. Justin Bieber. Nicki Minaj. Those are just some of the high-profile names that have been linked to the Lamborghini Aventador. Named after a Spanish fighting bull, the Italian mid-engine sports car has become one of the world’s most recognizable luxury vehicles, and for good reason. From its top-notch engineering to its revolutionary design, it hits all the marks for any true automobile enthusiast.
It’s The Inside That Counts
The Lamborghini Aventador’s exterior is undeniably iconic, but its most special feature is actually hidden from view; beneath its sleek carbon fiber hood. Its V12 engine, which is handcrafted in Sant’Agata Bolognese, represents the apex of engine construction, generating a jaw-dropping 769 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque.
Even more impressive is the fact that the engine is naturally aspirated, which means it relies on atmospheric pressure rather than the force induction of turbochargers. Such represents a huge advancement in the industry, as most supercars today are almost never without a turbocharger. Given that the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ currently holds the production car lap record at 6 minutes and 44 seconds in Nurburgring (which is three whole seconds faster than the Porsche GT2 RS), it’s safe to say that the V12 engine is nothing short of a masterpiece.
A Status Symbol For The Ages
Any Lamborghini will turn eyes, but the Aventador will forever remain one of the brand’s most quintessential offerings for the cultured class. Whether you’re an avid collector or simply looking to make a statement, the Aventador would be a perfect addition to your luxury car line-up. Currently, there are four models to choose from: the SVJ, the SVJ Roadster, the LP 780-4 Ultimae, and the LP 780-4 Ultimae Roadster. While they differ slightly from one another in terms of technical specifications, they all deliver the same superb quality unmatched performance that only Lamborghini can produce. In the words of Ferruccio Lamborghini himself: “Lamborghini is for real lovers,” and real lovers will love the Aventador.
