The Italian luxury sports car manufacturer, Lamborghini has introduced the more powerful version of the Aventador – Lamborghini Aventador S – in India at Rs 5.01 crore (ex-showroom). The ‘S’ is the suffix of previous enhanced Lamborghini models and defines a new benchmark for the V12 Lamborghini. Characterized by new aerodynamic design, the 2017 model features improved design, new driving dynamics and redeveloped suspension.
Compared to its predecessor, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S is 40bhp more powerful. Power-packed with the naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine, the car delivers a maximum power of 730bhp at 8,400rpm against 690Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. And what has helped the carmaker achieve these power figures are the optimized VIS (Variable Intake System) and VVT (Variable Valve Timing). Check Out – Lamborghini Huracan RWD Spyder – Picture Story
