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.

The Lamborghini Aventador is one of the most heavily tuned supercars in the market and rightfully so.

One aftermarket company that has made waves recently for its projects is Al & Eds Autosound. Though not as famously known as other companies, Al & Eds has produced a list of fine programs for vehicles like the Lamborghini Murcielago , the Porsche Panamera Turbo, and the Aston Martin DBS Volante .

Recently, Al & Eds took a crack at the Aventador, giving it a new aero kit and a modest performance tune that gives the mighty Italian supercar a little extra juice. The first trick was to give the Aventador a new body kit, which Al & Eds succeeded in doing with new body panels made from carbon fiber. A larger apron with bigger air inlets was installed, as was a new front lip with its own daytime driving lights.

There are also new front wings, a new hood with air inlets, a new carbon-fiber diffuser that is integrated into the new carbon-fiber rear apron, and a carbon-fiber rear wing.

After doing all that, Al & Eds coated the carbon-fiber panels with a bright orange paint, thus establishing the wicked look of this raging bull. From there, the work went to the supercar’s 6.5-liter V-12 engine, which was tuned to produce 754 horsepower, an increase of 54 ponies from the standard 700-horsepower output of the Aventador.

With those upgrades in tow, it wouldn’t surprise us the least if this tuned Lambo can clock a top speed of over 220 mph.

Click past the jump to read a few things about the Aventador

Sometimes, you can only let out an exasperated sigh.

The Lamborghini Aventador is, by all measures, a high-powered, true-as-can-be supercar. It’s appeal is hinged on the fact that it’s an exotic-looking beast with performance credentials unmatched by most cars in today’s world.

What it isn’t is a limousine, which is what UK-based luxury-car-for-hire company, Cars For Stars, is trying to turn it into.

To be fair to Cars For Stars, it’s designing the Lambo limo to remain "loyal to the original iconic Aventador design,” except with the caveat that it’s going to be much longer than what the Aventador is used to. But Cars For Stars is keeping most of the Aventador’s defining features, including the upwards-opening scissor doors, which will now have four of them as opposed to the two in the standard Aventador.

The company also said that the Aventador limousine will be built with only the finest materials in mind, including plush leather interiors emblazoned with the Cars For Stars logo, heated seats, plasma screens, iPod docks, surround sound, champagne bars and plenty more.

We have no doubts that Cars For Stars won’t disrespect the spirit of the Aventador, but there’s something to be said about turning a supercar into a luxury limousine that looks more and more like an expensive novelty more than anything else.

We get it if it’s a Rolls-Royce or a Bentley . But a Lamborghini Aventador?

Not so much.

With 700 horsepower under its hood, the Aventador is a supercar that needs no upgrades - not on the exterior, and especially not in its engine bay. Still, British tuner, Kahn Design, seems to disagree with Lamborghini when it says it has developed the ultimate supercar and today it announced an upgrade kit for the Aventador.

In true Kahn Design spirit, only the Aventador’s interior has been modified, while the exterior updates have been kept to minimum and only includes new 20-inch Kahn Santagata wheels finished in hyper or liquid silver.

On the interior, the two sports seats were covered in Nappa leather with white stitching. The tuner also installed a quilted steering wheel with airbags, instrument surround and center console in Nappa leather.

Each customer will have the possibility to customize the look of his supercar depending on his personal taste. Kahn Design is offering them the possibility to choose from an infinite palette of colors, fabric, leather and trim pieces.

Mansory is coming to the Geneva Motor Show with a new Carbonado program for the Lamborghini Aventador.

While this isn’t the first Carbonado program Mansory has made for the Aventador, it does come with some striking new components, including: a new front lip spoiler, a new front wing and bonnet, and Mansory-developed daytime running lights.

The program also includes newly designed side skirts with improved air intakes for increased ventilation of the front radiator. A diffuser is also built into the equally new rear spoiler, creating important control to the rear at high speeds. Rounding out Mansory’s Carbonado styling kit are the replacements for the roof and engine compartment with carbon-fiber versions and the installation of a new set of 21-inch ultra-light forged wheels with carbon-fiber inlays and wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires.

When talking about a Mansory-dressed interior, naturally, only the finest of materials are used. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the aftermarket company used processed leather for the seats and the dashboard, a material that’s claimed to be "durable yet still extraordinarily soft.” Adding to the exclusivity of the leather treatment is the individual graining and perfect hand stitching. From there, Mansory added more carbon-fiber components on the doors, the fittings and the center console, installed non-slip aluminum pedals and repositioned the starter button from the center console to the roof lining.

In terms of performance, the Carbonado is a certified beast on four wheels, boasting of a comprehensive engine upgrade that includes the addition of two turbochargers, the replacement of a number of engine parts with racing parts and the installation of a newly designed exhaust system. All taken together, Mansory was able to increase the output of the supercar to a staggering 1,250 horsepower with an electronically-limited peak torque of 590 pound-feet.

All taken together, the Carbonado program allows the Aventador to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 236 mph.

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4

Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and to mark the event the company has prepared a series of special events. Along with numerous parades, Lamborghini will also unveil a series of special-editions supercars, and one of them was recently confirmed for its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Lamborghini designer Filippo Prini confirmed that it will be a "big surprise" to everyone and that it will be "a homologated car." Bad news is that rumors are pointing toward it being built in limited edition: about 10 units are rumored to be developed. Some reports are also floating around that this could be the fastest car in Lamborghini’s history. If that rumors ends up being true, we would expect a 0-to-60 time under 2.5 seconds and a top speed well in excess of 200 mph – basically faster than the Sesto Elemento.

Lamborghini will have some supercar company in Geneva, as Ferrari will bring the Enzo successor, McLaren will bring the production version P1 supercar and Pagani also announced a surprise for the show.

Before you get too excited, keep in mind that a few days ago it was rumored that Lamborghini will unveil the Aventador LP720-4 in Geneva. Could this be the official confirmation? If so, the rumors of the fastest Lambo ever are definitely untrue, as there is no way that an extra 20 horsepower could put the Aventador in that class, unless the Italians are being sneaky with it…

Well see!

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster

If at some point in the year you decide to finally take the jump and buy a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, we’d be the first ones to offer you congratulations.

That is until after we remind you that, according to Lamborghini, the entire inventory of Aventador Roadsters until the middle of next year has already been sold out.

Yep. If you want one, you’re going to have to wait a really long time to get it. This news isn’t all that surprising, considering the Aventador, for one, is really awesome and for another thing, is really, really awesome.

It certainly looks like Lamborghini has another hot ticket on their hands, making them two for two with the Aventador. If you really insist on getting yours in advance, then the you must pay an enormous amount in advance or comply to paying special taxes.

Either way, it’ll most likely cost you more than the supercar’s $440,000 sticker price. But, if you have the money for it, what’s stopping you?

It’s no secret that Lambo has huge plans for its 50th anniversary and that the Aventador is due to lose its top in the U.S. market… officially. The Italian automaker decided why not just kick them both off at the same time, which it did today in Miami and we were there to witness it all.

The day kicked off at noon today in Miami, and began with a press conference across from the Breakwater Hotel and a 40-car parade down Collins Avenue. During the press conference, Lambo unveiled the much-anticipated Aventador LP700-4 Roadster to us media folk and it was definitely worth the wait. Have a look at our collection of images and you can see just how sexy the car really is.

On top of the official unveiling of the drop-top supercar, Lambo also satisfied our appetite for some speed. It accomplished this feat by closing off a runway at the Miami International Airport – the first time MIA has ever close a runway for an automotive event – to allow 12 Aventadors to run wild down the long straight stretch, peaking out at over 180 mph.

What a phenomenal showing by Lambo.

Shmee150 has shot one of his coolest video to date, as he caught three cool Lamborghini Aventadors playing together. The standard Aventador is a pretty amazing supercar itself, but the ones caught in this video are even more amazing – each one has been updated by Oakley Design and Refined Marques.

One of the supercar is painted orange , the other one is a one-off green Nasser Edition with £12k ($19k at the current exchange rates) worth of gold flakes in the lacquer and the latest one is a matte-white Aventador Dragon Edition , No. 2 out of a limited run of 10 belonging to Hussam Maatouk of Luxury Signatures dealership in Qatar.

Each Aventador features a carbon-fiber body work, rear wing, roof section, mirror caps, front spoiler, enlarged side scoops and a set of HRE wheels. And, of course, each delivers an extra 60 horsepower over the standard Aventador.

We know the supercars of the moment are the recently announced Corvette Stingray and the SRT Viper , but let’s take a look back to the Lamborghini Aventador - an Italian supercar that steals the hearts of many enthusiasts. Apparently, the guys from National Geographic Supercars were also pretty impressed with it and they featured it in one of the show’s episodes.

As a reminder, the Aventador is powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 engine that pumps out an astonishing 700 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and goes up to a top speed of 217 mph. The question is: does it worth paying almost $400k for it?

What the video and you will find out! You will also learn a few more details on how this amazing supercar has been developed. Enjoy!

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4

Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and the company announced big plans for this event. The biggest surprise has been announced by Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, who announced that a one-off design will be unveiled to mark this event.

It has now been confirmed that this unique Aventador will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show where it will meet its biggest competitor: the Ferrari F150.

According to AutoGespot, this new model will be called Aventador LP720-4 and the name makes us believe it will deliver an extra 20 horsepower over the standard supercar. If you add the fact that Winkelmann announced it will feature a one-off design then you will definitely obtain an amazing supercar. We’re just wondering how much this car will cost? As a reminder the Aventador J unveiled last year in Geneva was sold for $2.76 million.
