Keeping in line with the Lamborghini tradition of naming cars after bulls, the Lamborghini Adventador is named is named after a bull that fought in the ring of Saragossa, Spain in October of 1993. The Adventador displayed such courage that the bull was awarded the “Trofeo de la Pena La Madronera.” This display of aggression embodies the very spirit of the new Lamborghini Adventador.
President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini Stephen Winkelmann claims:
The Aventador is a jump of two generations in the terms of design and technology. It’s the result of an entirely new project, but at the same time it’s a direct and subsistent continuation of Lamborghini’s brand values. It is extreme in its design and its performance, uncompromising in its standards and technology, and unmistakably Italian in its style and perfection. Overall, the dynamics and technical excellence of the Aventador LP 700-4 makes it unrivaled in the worldwide super sports car arena.
We couldn’t agree more. The Adventador is a blend of exterior beauty with mind-blowing acceleration. Improvements made in technology create a ride that handles impeccably. Performance is unmatched with the Adventador reaching top speed of over 217 miles per hour.
When pulling out of the pit lane in the Superleggera the first thing you will notice is the sound. With absolutely no noise reduction materials inside the car, the roar of the 570 hp V10 is mind blowing. Step down on the accelerator and 570 horses fill the cabin.
Overall, the Lamborghini LP570-4 Superleggera is a lighter, faster, and more raw version of the Gallardo. The weight reduction has paid off handsomely in both the handling and performance making the Superleggera an unmatched road-going supercar.
The Aventador is equipped with a 6.5L V12 engine that produces an astonishing 700 hp at 8,250 rpm. The torques is just as impressive punching 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. This is the first new engine to be developed by Lamborghini since the Countach. 0-60 mph can be achieved in just 2.6 seconds, with a standing quarter mile in just 10.5 seconds! Even more impressive is the Aventador’s ability to launch from a dead start to a top speed of 217 mph in just 28 seconds, making the Aventador the fastest top speed produced of any Lamborghini.
Lamborghini set out with the goal to build an engine that is lighter than the previous motor and more powerful, a goal that has plagued engine builders for years. Lamborghini was able to achieve this feat by using an aluminum-silicon alloy to lower the over-all weight. High-temperature parts were still forged in steel to ensure engine reliability. Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said “This new power unit is not only the crowning glory of our product range; it is also part of our enormous investment in the future of the Lamborghini brand.” Winkelmann believes that this new engine technology will set Lamborghini apart from other supercars. At Exotics Racing, the Lamborghini Aventador has the fastest top speed of any car in the Exotics Racing fleet.
One of the most underappreciated features of the Aventador is the advanced ESP (Electronic Stability Program); this feature makes losing control almost impossible. This combined with active four-wheel drive; create an extremely forgiving ride that is almost impossible to break loose.
The Independent Shifting Rod is a seven speed single clutch automated manual gearbox system. This allows for very fast shift times from manual shifting, allowing gears to be shifted almost simultaneously. The ISR comes with two modes that deliver 50 millisecond shifts. This is achieved by creating a system that has the second rod ready to shift before the first rod is out of gear. Best-of-all the ISR transmission weighs approximately 175 pounds; this is significantly lighter than any other Direct-Shift Gearbox (DSG) on the market. This helps Lamborghini to accomplish the new lighter, faster, stronger philosophy.
The price tag of almost half a million dollars sounds at first to be crazy talk; however, keep in mind what similar vehicles that produce about the same speed go for in today’s economy. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport for instance, has a top speed of 268 mph with a price tag of $2.4 million! McLaren produced the street legal rocket ship F1 which sat around $1 million dollars with a top speed of 240 mph. The limited edition Ferrari Enzo had a price tag of $700,000 with a top speed of 217 mph, and the Pagani Zonda F which has a top speed of 215 mph carries a price tag of $740,000.
Those looking to buy should get on a waiting list soon. According to Autocar, “the carbon fiber molds that are used to construct the car’s monocoque can be used as many as 500 times before they have to be replaced.” Lamborghini only produced 8 carbon fiber molds for the Aventador, bringing the total numbers of vehicles that can be made to 4,000.less >
