India’s first Lamborghini Aventador S has been delivered to a customer from Bengaluru.
The Lamborghini Aventador S was unveiled globally in January 2017. Soon after that, Lamborghini brought the supercar to India in March as a successor to the original Aventador. The two-seater supercar retails for Rs. 5.01 Crore (ex-showroom, India) and is the first production-spec Lamborghini to come with four-wheel-steer technology. This technology allows the rear wheels to turn according to vehicle speed to allow a better driving experience.
At low speeds, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to the front ones to provide a shorter turning radius while they turn in the same direction as the front ones at high speeds to improve cornering ability. Therefore, this technology makes it easier to explore the true capabilities of this brilliant engine-chassis combination.
On the outside, a redesigned fascia including the large front splitter and vertical air-ducts give it a charismatic appearance. Through the restyled nose and a sleeker tail, the Lamborghini Aventador S is easily identifiable from its predecessor even with its subtle changes. A TFT touchscreen with Apple Carplay is also on offer.
Powered by the same 6.5-litre, naturally aspirated, V12 engine as the model it replaces, the Aventador S develops 740 PS of power and 690 NM of torque. The engine comes mated to a 7-speed transmission with a shift time of 50 milliseconds. The supercar reaches the 100 km/hr mark in 2.9 seconds with a claimed top speed of 350 km/hr. Also, it rides on Pirelli P Zero tyres and comes with carbon-ceramic discs to shed the speeds effectively.
The Aventador S delivered in Bengaluru becomes the first customer car to be delivered in India. The Nero Pegaso shade is one among the host of colours on offer. It shares garage with India’s only Aventador SV Roadster among other supercars including the Porsche 997 Turbo and GT3 as well.
Four driving modes of the Aventador S include Strada, Sport, Corsa and Ego. The erstwhile Aventador offered only the first three modes. In India, the Lamborghini Aventador S comes in coupe form and competes with the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Aston Martin Vanquish. As the supercar market is evolving, India is witnessing a rather steady increase in the number of rare supercars.
