New 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S reviews
The Italians have now decided to make a comprehensive upgrade to the fighting, which has been on the market since 2011. This includes, in addition to a few design corrections also changes under the skin. Also the name changes: In future the car is called “2017 Lamborghini Aventador S“.
Changes in Design
Let’s start with the design: Particularly striking is the facelift at the revised front, with now a clearly recognizable channel leads the air to the coolers right and left. The front splitter has also been changed, it has become somewhat longer. At the rear there are newly designed mudguards, which are now to remind the Countach in their form. A new diffuser and an active wing with three positions complete the picture. But the corrections are not only cosmetic. The splitter on the front axle could improve the output there, for example, by 130 percent.
4-wheel steering in the Lamboghini
Lamborghini also developed the Aventador technically. For the first time, active shock absorbers are installed in a series Lambo, which can be adjusted in four different stages. The new all-wheel steering system is also to be viewed as a highlight, which we know from the Porsche GT3, for example. When driving slowly, the axles are slightly counter-clockwise to reduce the turning circle, while the axles move in the same direction at high speed Driving stability. A newly coordinated ESC program, together with the newly introduced “ego” driving mode, plays a major role in the tuning of the car. In the “ego” mode, all parameters such as suspension, steering or drive can be freely combined with each other.
2017 Aventador S Engine and tire
Although the 2017 Aventador S has not been a slow car yet, Lamborghini lags the facelift again. additional 40 PS (39 HP) make the Aventador now to 740 PS (730bhp). The torque remains at 690 Nm (509 lb-ft). The 0-100 km / h time is 2.9 seconds, the top speed at extreme 350 km / h. A new exhaust system not only provides the Lamborghini V12 sound, it also saves around 20 percent of the weight compared to the system in the pre-facelift model. Newly developed P-Zero tires from Pirelli are supposed to transfer the concentrated force to the road.
2017 Lamborghini Aventador S price and release date
The interior changes are limited to the core of the instrument panel, which now has a large TFT screen. This is completely freely configurable and can thus be tailored to the different wishes of the individual customer.
