The Lamborghini Aventador, produced by the Italian manufacturer Lamborghini is a mid-engined sports car. The Aventador was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in February 2011 after it was first unveiled in Sant’Agata Bolognese, where it was launched under a codename and was said to replace the Murcielago and become the new flagship model.
Soon after its official launch, it was announced that 12 cars were already sold out and deliveries would start in the second half of 2011. The milestone was achieved in 5 years by which Lamborghini had built and sold 5,000 Aventador’s.
The Aventador has the fourth-in house engine from the Lamborghini engine line and is the second car to model the v12 design. The 700 PS (510 kW; 690 bhp) engine features a 6.5 liter 60-degree v12 engine, which weighs 235kg. It is the first new 6.5 liter v12 since the 3.5-liter v12 engine that was placed in the 350GT.
The max power of the Aventador is 700 PS @ 8.250 rpm, and its max torque is 432 PS (318 kW; 426 bhp) per tonne. The combined fuel consumption is 17.2 L/100 km, and the CO2 emission is 398g/km.
Aventador goes from 0-97 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and its official top speed is 354 km/h (220 mph) which was measured by the Sports Auto Magazine as 370 km/h (230 mph).
It has a single clutch 7-speed semi-automatic transmission. The gear-shifts can be accomplished in 50 milliseconds. The Aventador has the power to weight ratio of 2.25kg/horsepower.
Soon after the Aventador’s launch, the Aventador Roadster was launched in December 2012. Lamborghini claims that the Aventador Roadster can reach 97km/h in less than 3 seconds and its top speed is more than 350 km/h (217 mph), it has the same v12 engine.
The rood of the Aventador is removable; it consists of two carbon fiber panels that each weigh 6 kg. The panels can be easily removed and stored in the front compartment.
