An icon cannot be reinvented, it can only be challenged. And only Aventador could surpass itself. Following Miura, Islero, Countach, and Urraco, Lamborghini’s most iconic model now reaps the inheritance of the historic S models and evolves into the new Aventador S Coupé.
Exclusive Lamborghini design and the new V12 engine with a whopping 740 HP now join the most sophisticated technology of the range, featuring the new LDVA (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva/Lamborghini Active Vehicle Dynamics), which offers an unparalleled driving experience to all those who honour their egos by challenging themselves every day.
What the new S model inherits from the Aventador family is its extraordinary beating heart: the iconic V12 engine. It is the sign of recognition of a thoroughbred power, with its excellent acceleration performance at any engine speed, lightning-fast responsiveness, a breathtaking roar, and now a full 40 HP more to unleash on the asphalt. But Aventador S Coupé will not settle for less and wants everything: the performance features of a super sports car are joined by the extreme agility and handling of the 4 Wheel Steering system for unprecedented driving dynamics, along with the possibility to have the most personal driving experience ever thanks to the brand new EGO customised driving mode.
In addition to its beating heart, Aventador S Coupé is also endowed with an incredibly sophisticated brain: the innovative Lamborghini Active Vehicle Dynamics (LDVA) control unit, a system of active technologies that can manage each of the dynamic axles of the vehicle. The lateral vehicle dynamics is controlled by a steering system that involves all four wheels using Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) and Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering (LRS). The vertical vehicle dynamics is handled by the Lamborghini Magneto-rheological suspension (LMS) and the active rear aerodynamics. And the longitudinal dynamics relies on the four-wheel drive system (4WD). The LDVA system combines all the information coming from the car’s sensors and establishes in real time the best setting for each driving condition. The result is performance that is absolutely perfect, safe, and compelling.
