Lamborghini revealed an updated Aventador a few days ago, adding an S badge to its name. According to the company, the model is due to go on sale for the 2018 model year. As you probably know, Lamborghini’s range-topping supercar arrived in 2011 replacing the Murcielago. Although Aventador’s mid-cycle updated was previously expected to bring only minor tweaks, the Aventador S offers substantial improvements. In addition to the changes in aerodynamics, it also gets a significant power bump. Latest reports reveal that the 2018 Lamborghini Aventador should hit the market in spring 2017.
Aventador Facelift 2018
The Aventador S may seem identical to the previous model from a distance. However, it actually features a large number of exterior alterations. Its front end now sports a thoroughly redesigned bumper as well as a more aggressive nose. The revised nose gets smaller vents and a black insert around an extended splitter. All these modifications result in improved aerodynamics and engine cooling. Seen from the sides, the supercar features restyled rear wheel arches as the only notable change. As for the rear side, the 2018 Lamborghini Aventador sportsmore prominent modifications. It comes with a reshaped bumper with slimmer side vents and higher corners that give it a more muscular look. Below the bumper, expect to see a larger diffuser with three fins on each side of the exhaust. On top of that, Lambo added an active rear wing movable in three positions.
2018 Lamborghini Aventador Engine Specs
The 2018 Lamborghini Aventador will get a substantially upgraded drivetrain as well. Its 6.5-liter V12 will crank out 740 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque. That means additional 40 ponies compared to the ongoing model and only 9 hp less than the Aventador SV. The power increase actually comes from the addition of optimized Variable Valve Timing and Variable Intake System. Moreover, the maximum engine revs have been increased from 8,350 to 8,500 rpm. The power is transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed gearbox, while top speed remains 217 mph. Despite its more aerodynamic shape and added power, the upcoming Aventador will need the same 2.9 seconds to hit 60 mph.
When it comes to the 2018 Lamborghini Aventador price tag, expect it to be more expensive than its predecessor. American customers will be able to purchase the Aventador S for $421,350, which is a $20,000 increase. The upcoming model will start at €281,555 in Europe, and £225, 955 in the UK.
