50 years ago a man named Ferruccio who owned a successful tractor company wanted to buy a sports car so he bought a Ferrari. He liked the car but had a few suggestions to make it better. When Enzo Ferrari snubbed Ferruccio the battle for exotic car supremacy was born. Now on the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini, we have this, the greatest Lamborghini's of all time: the Aventador.
There is a new king at the top of the Lamborghini family tree. The Murcielago has been loved for many years and the Aventador has stepped up to take its place. This is the biggest and baddest Lambo you can buy. The car reviewed here in the test drive video sports a $14,000 matte paint job that looks amazing. Up front the headlights are gorgeous with the unique LED daytime running light "Y" style. Down the side you notice the massive wheels with the huge carbon-ceramic brakes and bright orange calipers. The car is very low measuring only 44 inches tall. The scissor doors look fantastic and are a Lamborghini trade mark. Out back the engine is open only covered by a transparent bonnet allowing you to see the heart of this beast. The wicked looking tail lamps mimic the pattern seen on the headlights. The whole look is aggressive supercar super amazing!
Under the bonnet is a 6.5 liter V-12 engine that produces 691 horsepower and 508 lb-ft. of torque. This rocket ship blast from 0-60 MPH in 2.9 seconds! Keep your foot planted and the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador has a top speed of 207 MPH. The ISR gearbox is a 7-speed transmission that shifts in milliseconds. Another innovation on the Aventador is the push-rod style suspension. This setup is more commonly seen in Formula-1 race cars.
The interior on the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador is inspired by a fighter jet cockpit. The steering wheel feels great in your hands; the center stack is perfectly angled to allow the driver to monitor climate, navigation, and audio. The gauges are not analog rather a TFT Screen.
Driving the Aventador is the closest thing to flying a fighter jet. The acceleration is wild and the engine is ferocious making lots of noise since its mounted right behind the cabin. Besides the power, this exotic car handles fantastically. There are 3 different drive modes on the Aventador. Strada is the normal mode where traction control is at its fullest, the exhaust note is muted a bit, and the shifts are easier. Sport mode relaxes the traction control and shifts get a little quicker. For the real Lamborghini experience, pop the car into Corsa mode and the car go on full tilt with lightning fast shifts.
At over $400k this car is only for the rich. But they are getting an amazing machine that is wild, brash, in your face, and aggressive. It's everything you would want from a Lamborghini Supercar! There is no better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini than by driving the 2013 Aventador.
