Lamborghini has always been known for their high horsepower pavement ripping works of art, this only makes it more difficult for them to raise the bar. Their answer is the Aventador, a 700 horsepower V12 capable of doing 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and doing so in a recognizable canvas.
My first impression of the Aventador is that it looks like a stretched Gallardo, with slightly more aggressive lines. I imagine the larger wheel base and stretched appearance lends itself to a more stable ride at max speed, somewhere around 217 mph. Also, thanks to advancements in weight positioning, the 6.5 liter engine seated over the rear tires allows for breakneck 0-60 times of 2.9 seconds.
The Aventador comes in a variety of color combinations and options, including 2 solid paint options of either black, yellow, or optional white. In addition, there are 4 different metallic colors, 4 pearl orange effects, and 3 different matte finishes.
How much does the Lamborghini Aventador cost? If you have to ask, it doesn’t matter, especially considering all 2011 models have already been spoken for. Ok, if you must know, the 2011 Aventador has a list price of $387,000. Get in line now for the 2012 model year and bring your check book.
