Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini Aventador

  The Lamborghini Aventador is a two-seater hyper sportscar and was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011. The Aventador will replace the Murciélago and uses a 6.5-litre, V12 engine which produces 700 HP at 8,250 rpm and 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. This output is just enough to sprint the car from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds while blasting off a top speed of 217 mph.

Countach was one of the first supercars developed by Lamborghini . It was unveiled in 1974 and remained in production until 1990, during which period a total of 2,042 units were produced. The Countach won many awards and during its era, it was one of the fastest supercars on the market: it could hit a top speed of 207 mph in its LP 500 Turbo S version.

Now the guys over MotorTrend put it head to head against the new Aventador in the latest episode of "World’s Fastest Car Show." The two cars were driven by Justin Bell, who wanted to see if the new Aventador is as good as its predecessor.

According to him, the drive can tell you more than any history book, as driving the two supercars gives Justin insight into the impact the revolutionary Countach had not only on its eventual successor, the Aventador, but the entire supercar industry. It also drives him to use plenty of dirty language, which was carefully bleeped out, of course... Enjoy!

On the surface, this is arguably one of the flashiest Lamborghini Aventadors we’ve ever seen. Hardly surprising, though, considering that the man driving this supercar is 24-year-old Naseer Al-Thani.

So while vacationing in London with his trusty exotic, Al-Thani inexplicably forgot his driver’s license and insurance information in Qatar, a bad recipe if you’re planning to show-off your purple-and-orange, glow-in-the-dark Aventador in a foreign country.

Unfortunately for Al-Thani, dressing up the Aventador in that garb wasn’t the only poor decision he’s made recently. After getting pulled over for missing number plates, Al-Thani’s Aventador was seized by British police for being driven without insurance.

And as fate would have it, the Aventador could meet its maker far too soon with the prospect of getting crushed a likely scenario. Remember, mundane vehicles get this kind of treatment when they’re seized in Britain.

Could Al Thani’s Tron-tastic Lamborghini Aventador suffer the same fate?

We certainly hope not, although we’re not too confident of its chances to live past its slapped expiration date.

Back in December of last year, German tuner DMC unveiled one of the nastiest tuning packages made for the Lamborghini Aventador .

It was called the LP900 Spezial Version and in so many words, it was just nuts. Mind-blowing nuts.

At that time, DMC promised to build only 10 kits of the LP900 SV and limited it to clients who already owned a regular Molto Veloce kit for the Aventador. And even then, the owners were still subjected to a thorough screening process from DMC with only 10 getting the opportunity to own the unique "aftermarket of an aftermarket program".

So as you can see, the LP900 SV is about as rare as a pink unicorn with winged hooves. That’s why it’s big news when DMC unveils these models, which they actually did with one of them.

This sparkling piece of aftermarket awesomeness is the third kit of the lot, yet appropriately numbered 2/10 to account for the "0" prototype.

It still carries all of the aftermarket wonders DMC installed to it, highlighted by the massive engine upgrade that saw the output from its 6.5-liter V-12 engine shoot up from 700 horsepower all the way up to 900 horsepower. DMC didn’t reveal the program’s performance numbers, but there’s no reason to believe that this rocket can hit close to 230 when it has its legs all stretched out.

Novitec just added a new sub-brand to its lineup, which will specialize in updating Lamborghini models. The new Novitec Torado brand offers aerodynamic packages made in carbon fiber and updates under the hood to help boost the power output of various raging bulls. To no surprise, the very first model that caught its attention is the Aventador LP700-4 .

For the Aventador , the tuner offers a new body kit that it has optimized in the wind tunnel. It is made in carbon fiber and helps deliver improved aerodynamics and offers a more aggressive look for the Aventador . For the interior, Novitec also offers lots of carbon-fiber elements to help set it apart from others.

Most of the work that Novitec has put into the Aventador directly impact the supercar’s performance figures. For this, the tuner installed an upgraded engine management software and installed a high-quality stainless-steel exhaust system made. For a little extra cash, you can pick up the lightweight exhaust system made from Inconel - a nickel, chromium and iron alloy typically reserved for gas-turbine blades.

Just like that, the robot family in "Transformers 4" just got a whole lot more serious.

We’ve already seen a few of the vehicles that will be a part of the fourth installment of the movie franchise. But apparently, director Michael Bay isn’t done dropping bombshell after bombshell with regards to its roster of vehicles.

The latest one, the Lamborgini Aventador, , definitely adds tons more power and aggressiveness to the Transformers’ lineup.

Straight out of Sant’Agata Bolognese, the Aventador joins what is shaping up to be quite the collection of intergalactic robots that have shown a propensity for good taste as far as the cars they transform into. The Aventador now joins a list that includes the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse , a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray , a customized 1967 Camaro SS , and even a new truck for Optimus Prime.

At this point, the cars that will be a part of "Transformers 4" remind us of the Dubai Police’s roster of exotic police cars. Just like the latter, we won’t be surprised anymore if Bay adds even more supercars into the mix.

Maybe Megatron turns into the Marauder?

If you think that 2,000 vehicles being made isn’t a big deal, you obviously don’t know how much a Lamborghini Aventador costs.

It’s not a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Civic , and it certainly doesn’t cost anywhere near those two cars.

So, for Lamborghini to have built 2,000 examples of the Aventador in a little over 2 years, that’s a huge deal and certainly worth celebrating. Celebrate the company did when Aventador No. 2k rolled off the production line.

As for the lucky owner of the Italian supercar, his name is Thaddeus Arroyo, the Chief Intelligence Officer for AT&T in the U.S. Incidentally, he also owns a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder , which indicates that this man knows his Lamborghinis.

Congratulations to Lamborghini on reaching this fantastic milestone far sooner than anybody anticipated. At this rate, don’t be surprised if we see more of these celebrations in the coming years.

Aftermarket company, Vorsteiner, has already built pretty impressive programs for the Lamborghini Aventador . But even with all its added to its inventory, the company is still tinkering with the Italian supercar to give it even more awesome than it already is.

For its latest project, Vorsteiner is building a new kit separate from the Renazzo-V ; this time, it’s being touted as the Aventador-V and will feature some pretty exotic panels, including a new front and rear bumpers, a new rear spoiler and new side skirts, all of which will drive the Aventador’s already flashy appearance a few grades above "absolute bonkers".

The components are still in development, but the company has said that it will use a variety of carbon-fiber accessories, including a two-piece "wing blade package", as well as a new set of 20- and 21-inch monoblock forged-aluminum wheels.

The program will also have a unique and luxurious interior package and an F1 evolution exhaust system, all of which will further drive home the point that the Aventador-V program is something we should all keep an eye out for.

At the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show, Lamborghini unveiled theAventador LP720-4 50° Anniversario Edition , but only in its coupe garb. Just days ago, at a special dinner in Sant’Agata, the Italian company unveiled a roadster version of the car.

It was painted in a sharp matte-grey hue named “Grigio Titans” combined with Terra Emilia leather interior. For those of you who don’t remember, this special matte-gray paint is the same color used on the Reventon.

The roadster will feature the same design language on the coupe version, including: enlarged air intakes and splitters up front and on the rear; and an enlarged diffuser. Additionally, on the dashboard there is a special logo that reads "Series Speciale 00/100," suggesting that just like the coupe version, the roadster will also be limited to 100 units.

If you are interested in acquiring this model, then you should know it carries a price tag of $548,000, which is $106,300 more than the Aventador LP700-4 Roadster .

You all remember the Molto Veloce tuning kit unveiled by DMC Tuning? After all, it is one of the best kits offered for the Aventador . Now, Japanese tuner Autoproject-D decided to take this kit even further and offer a few more upgrades for the Molto Veloce.

What makes the Molto Veloce very special is that DMC worked on offering an extra 200 horsepower under the hood, so customers can now enjoy a 900 horsepower Aventador. That’s nothing to sneeze on, fellas. In order to obtain this power boost, the tuner decided to replace the combined overhead throttle valves per cylinder bank with 12 unique single intake throttle plates, one per each cylinder.

The tuner also installed new gasoline pumps and lines, pressure modulators and injection nozzles and remapped the engine electronics. There is also a new titanium exhaust system that weights only 7.6 pounds - a significant drop over the standard 76 pounds.

We’re usually not prone to overt praises on these pages, but when it comes to Canadian tuner SR Auto Group, you can’t help but appreciate the level of work it does on its programs.

SR Auto Group has, on multiple occasions , taken a Lamborghini Aventador for a custom spin. And when presented with another of its kind to work on, it didn’t hesitate to put its hardhat on and get to work - again. That’s why we respect SR; no car is too difficult to give some aftermarket lovin’.

This time, the subject is a 2013 Nero Pegaso Aventador, a supercar that not only speaks the language of speed and power, but does so while wearing a menacing look on its face.

At the end of the day, SR Auto Group is all about bringing out the full potential of any super car it comes across. That includes the Aventador and to its credit, SR Auto Group never seems tire of giving the exotic Italian bull the respect it so richly deserves.
