2018 Lamborghini Aventador S
The Aventador S is the ultimate Lamborghini supercar.
At the heart of this sublime Grigio Aventador S beats a phenomenal naturally aspirated V12 engine – with 545 kW it is the most powerful engine ever offered by Lamborghini for a road-going car. And without a doubt it is the best-sounding V12 engine available in any supercar today with a high-pitched wail so brutal and sharp it tears flesh.
The dark exterior colour and extensive use of carbon fibre work in harmony, as evidenced with the sculptured carbon fibre roof panel nestling so perfectly you’d swear this Roadster is actually a Coupe. Carbon fibre abounds on the outside, with the exotic material forming the structure for the lower front spoiler, rear diffuser and lower sills.
This million-dollar machine has the looks to match. The distinctive shark-like nose feeds into a sculptured body with deep air intakes and comes to an aggressive conclusion at the rear with sharp diagonal lines jutting like razor blades.
The Aventador S is, however, more than a statement of hardcore performance and design. This car is also testament to Lamborghini’s latest hi-tech innovation as evidenced by the lightweight, full carbon-fibre tub and aluminium / carbon composite body panels that also assist overall aerodynamics, allowing this extraordinary supercar to scythe its way to a top speed well in excess of 300 km/h.
This example is a demonstrator with less than 200 kms on the odometer. It features a sumptuous Nero Ade leather interior with soft-wrap leather steering wheel, diamond pattern quilted seats and armrest forming beautifully around the striking carbon fibre centre console. This Aventador S is as good as it gets!
