Sant’Agata Bolognese, September 10, 2020 – Automobili Lamborghini has reached a historic milestone with its V12 model: in nine years, the Sant’Agata Bolognese plant has produced 10,000 Aventadors. The car with chassis number 10 000 is an Aventador SVJ Roadster in the color Grigio Acheso (gray) with Rosso Mimir (red) livery and Ad Personam interior in Rosso Alala (red) and black. The car is intended for the Thai market.
The Aventador range debuted in 2011 in the coupe version as the Aventador LP 700-4. Thanks to the new technological solutions introduced, it immediately became a new point of reference in the world of super sports cars.
Its innovative carbon fiber monocoque produced in the Sant’Agata Bolognese plant is “monocoque”: unlike other solutions, it combines the cockpit, floor and roof of the car in a single structure, ensuring rigidity. extremely high structural performance and therefore maximum performance in terms of dynamic behavior and passive safety. A new high-performance V12 engine was developed for the Aventador LP 700-4: with an output of 700 hp (515 kW) at 8,250 rpm, it set a new benchmark in the world of super sports cars at the time. of its introduction. Exceptional acceleration of 2.9 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h and a top speed of 350 km / h.
The presence of the ISR robotic transmission guarantees thrilling ultra-fast gear changes; The pushrod suspension system provides driving precision comparable to that of racing cars. And then there are the iconic doors that open upwards, similar to those on the legendary Countach and the V12 models that followed it.
In November 2012, Automobili Lamborghini presented the Roadster version of the Aventador. Its roof is composed of two sections and is made entirely of carbon fiber, using different technologies including RTM and Forged Composite®, technologies that ensure maximum aesthetic impact and extremely light weight. In fact, each section of the roof weighs less than 6 kg. The rear pillar has been redesigned to provide the removable roof with adequate support, to house an automatic passenger protection system and to sufficiently ventilate the engine compartment.
At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Aventador J was unveiled, an “open” super sports car whose exterior and interior merge, for which the designers and engineers of Sant’Agata have dispensed with both the roof and the classic windshield. The 700 hp (515 kW) two-seater features cutting-edge technological solutions and materials that demonstrate Lamborghini’s enormous expertise in carbon fiber technology. Designed to drive at speeds above 300 km / h, this type of extreme experience is nevertheless a question of exclusivity: the Lamborghini Aventador J has been approved for road use and is a unique piece intended for a lucky enthusiast of works of art that are unique in the world.
In 2016 Automobili Lamborghini unveiled the Aventador Miura Homage, a special series derived from the Aventador coupe to pay homage to the Miura, the precursor of Lamborghini’s V12 super sports cars, in the year of its 50th anniversary. Created by the company’s Ad Personam department and limited to just 50 units, the Aventador Miura Homage reflects the original Miura models in its colors and features.
Also in 2016, the new Lamborghini Aventador S was introduced, with a new aerodynamic design, redesigned suspension, more power and completely redesigned driving dynamics. The “S” denotes upgraded versions of pre-existing Lamborghini models. The Aventador S sports a 6.5-liter aspirated 12-cylinder engine with a power output of 40 HP more than the previous model, for a maximum power of 740 HP. The Aventador S combines four engineering masterpieces: the thrill of driving amplified by four-wheel drive, the new active suspension, an innovative four-wheel steering system and the new EGO drive mode, which allows it is up to the driver to choose from several additional configuration profiles. which can be customized by selecting their preferred criteria for traction, steering and suspension within the range of STRADA, SPORT and CORSA settings.
In 2018 the Aventador SVJ was introduced. “SV”, according to tradition, stands for Superveloce, and the “J” stands for “Jota”, which denotes the car’s superiority on the track and in terms of performance. The Aventador SVJ has already established itself as the fastest production vehicle on the famous German Nürburgring-Nordschleife track, covering the 20.6 km lap in just 6: 44.97 minutes. Production of the SVJ was limited to 900 units. The SVJ 63, a special edition with a unique configuration that highlights the intensive use of carbon fiber, was produced in just 63 units to pay homage to the founding year of Automobili Lamborghini: 1963. Both cars feature new aerodynamically oriented design elements: a disconnected front splitter that feels like it’s floating, while acting as an airflow channel; a three-dimensional air intake on the hood that directs the air flow; and a rear spoiler designed to achieve the best aerodynamic efficiency. A new front bumper with integrated side fins features a new air intake and highlights the inclusion of the ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) system patented by Lamborghini.
In 2019, Skyler Gray’s unique Aventador S was unveiled, symbolizing the fusion of two artistic concepts. On the one hand, there is the automotive art of Lamborghini, where the unique design of forms, always characterized by taut lines, three-dimensional volumes, geometries and stylistic elements of the past, is combined with pioneering technological solutions. On the other hand, Skyler Gray used the main techniques of street art – airbrush, guns, rollers and stencils – to customize the body of the car in its typical Pop style in orange and yellow. The car was painted in three weeks in Lamborghini’s new paint shop. Despite the high level of complexity of the work, the artist, with the support of the team, brought to life the first work of legal street art on four wheels.
