What's New for Aventador in 2013

The Aventador gains automatic stop/start and cylinder deactivation to increase fuel economy while cruising. Lamborghini has also tweaked the standard suspension. A new 20- or 21-inch Dione wheel is optional, as are more pieces of carbon fiber trim on various interior and exterior surfaces...more

Overview

The Lamborghini Aventador replaced the Murciélago, and those were some pretty big shoes to fill. As one of the world’s preeminent supercars, the Murciélago was devastatingly quick and, despite its demure-for-Lambo looks, loud and brash. The Aventador takes a big step forward, technologically speaking. Its seven-speed transmission uses only one clutch but is lighter than comparable dual-clutch setups, and it snaps off gearshifts like a machine gun. Power comes from a 6.5-liter V-12, which manages to be cleaner and more efficient than the old engine while amping up the power to a mind-blowing 691 horses. The Aventador uses carbon-fiber construction throughout its body (the passenger cell is one solid tub of carbon fiber), which keeps weight down despite the car’s hulking size. With styling reminiscent of the Sesto Elemento concept car, the Aventador draws visual comparisons to a jet fighter, but it could draw performance comparisons, too. The Aventador can go from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds and tops out at 217 mph, putting it in a very elite club of 200-plus-mph supercars. The Aventador is the ultimate metamorphosis of the Italian sports car. For those with the money to spend, having an Aventador in the garage is a one-way ticket to a world of speed and striking looks.
