Lamborghini Aventador (Spanish pronunciation: [aβentaˈðoɾ]) is a mid-engine sportscar produced by the Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini. In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador is named after a Spanish fighting bull that fought in Zaragoza, Aragón in 1993
Launched on 28 February 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show, five months after its initial unveiling in Sant'Agata Bolognese, the vehicle, internally codenamed LB834, was designed to replace the then-decade-old as the new flagship model.
Soon after the Aventador's unveiling, Lamborghini announced that it had sold 12 cars, with deliveries starting in the second half of 2011. By March 2016, Lamborghini had built 5,000 Aventadors, in five years.

The Aventador LP700-4 is the first iteration of the Aventador and was designed by Filippo Perini. Production of the Aventador was planned to be limited to 4,000 vehicles; however, in 2016, it achieved the 5,000 unit milestone. The moulds used to make the monocoque are expected to last 500 moulds each and only 8 have been made.
The car's shape borrows heavily from Lamborghini's limited-edition Reventón and the concept car.
The Aventador was unveiled at Lummus Park, Miami, followed by Miami International Airport followed by Auto China 2014 (with Nazionale configuration via Lamborghini Ad Personam personalization program).
Aventador LP700-4 Roadster (2013–2016)
Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster
The Aventador LP700-4 Roadster was announced for production on 27 December 2012. Equipped with the same V12 engine as the coupé version, Lamborghini claims that it can accelerate from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 2.9 seconds and will achieve a top speed of 349 km/h (217 mph).
The removable roof consists of two carbon fibre panels, weighing 6 kg (13 lb) each, which required the reinforcement of the rear pillar to compensate for the loss of structural integrity as well as to accommodate the rollover protection and ventilation systems for the engine. The panels are easily removable and are stored in the front luggage compartment. The Aventador Roadster has a unique engine cover design and an attachable wind deflector to improve cabin airflow at super high speeds as well as a gloss black finish on the A-pillars, windshield header, roof panels, and rear window area. With a total weight of 1,625 kg (3,583 lb) it is only 50 kg (110 lb) heavier than the coupé (the weight of the roof, plus additional stiffening in the sills and A-pillars).
Aventador SuperVeloce LP750-4 (2015–2017)
2015 Lamborghini Aventador SV
The Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce LP750-4 was announced at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It features an upgraded powertrain, with maximum power output increased to 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) from the standard coupé's 700 PS (515 kW; 690 hp). Combined with weight reduction of 50 kg (110 lb) from increased usage of carbon fibre both inside and outside the car, the SV LP750-4 has a power to weight ratio of 1 hp to 2 kg. The car also features improved aerodynamics, with downforce increased by 180% as compared to the standard Aventador coupé. Notable aerodynamic upgrades are a revised front splitter and a rear diffuser along with a fixed CFRP rear wing. The car's driving dynamics have also been upgraded, featuring new enhanced electronic steering for superior maneuverability at high speeds, magnetic pushrod suspension for superior handling, and chassis improvements to increase rigidity. Overall the SV LP750-4's 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration time is decreased from 2.9 seconds to 2.8 seconds, with the theoretical top speed still "somewhere in excess" of 350 km/h (217 mph). Delivery of the car began in the second quarter of 2015 with production limited to 600 units. Road & Track recorded a 0–241 km/h (0–150 mph) time of 12.8 seconds, a 0–322 km/h (0–200 mph) time of 33.5 seconds, and a 0–1⁄4 mile (402 m) trap speed of 227.4 km/h (141.3 mph) in the March 2016 0–322 km/h (0–200 mph) shootout.
Production of the Aventador SuperVeloce LP 750-4 ended in July 2017 with the last car finished in a bespoke liquid silver metallic paint job.

The Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce LP 750-4 Roadster was unveiled at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It features a compact two-piece carbon fibre hardtop that can be stored in the trunk like the standard roadster. Numerous weight-saving measures have lowered the Roadster's weight to 1,575 kg (3,472 lb), a figure that makes it 50 kg (110 lb) lighter than the standard roadster.Deliveries began in the first quarter of 2016 and production was limited to 500 units.
Aventador S LP740-4 (2016–2021)
Lamborghini Aventador S
The Lamborghini Aventador S was revealed on 19 December 2016 at the Sant'Agata factory. Official reveal of the car took place at the March 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Aventador S is an update to the Aventador LP700-4 with mechanical and exterior changes. The updated exterior of the car was designed by Lamborghini's head of design Mitja Borkert. The 6.5 litre V12 engine is now rated at 740 PS (544 kW; 730 hp) at 8,400 rpm (40 PS (39 hp; 29 kW), more than the original Aventador and 690 N⋅m (509 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm. The car can accelerate from 0 to 97 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 349 km/h (217 mph).
The Aventador S received four wheel steering, permanent four-wheel-drive and a slightly updated suspension. The suspension is controlled by the 'Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva' (LDVA) control unit. The LDVA has four selectable modes – Sport, Strada (Street), Corsa (Track) and Ego (i.e. individual). Carbon ceramic brakes are standard (front: 400 mm, rear: 380 mm). The nose was redesigned with a bigger front splitter and two new air ducts in the front bumper. At the rear, it has a new black rear diffuser with fins and three single exit exhaust tips. It has 130 per cent more front downforce than the original Aventador.
Aventador S LP740-4 Roadster (2017–2021)
The roadster variant of the new Aventador S followed up in 2017 at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. The roadster is mechanically identical to the coupé with the only difference being the engine cover (identical to the standard Aventador roadster), two removable roof panels (weighing less than 6 kg (13 lb) stowable in the front compartment of the car and new optional wheels. The roadster is 50 kg (110 lb) heavier than the coupé due to chassis reinforcing components due to which it accelerates from 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in 3.2 seconds, 0.3 seconds slower than the coupe.
Aventador SVJ LP770-4 (2018–present)
Unveiled at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the Aventador SVJ (Super Veloce Jota) is a track focused iteration of the Aventador S and an improvement over the Aventador SV. The 6.5-litre L539 V12 engine used in the entire Aventador lineage has been reworked and now generates a maximum power output of 770 PS (566 kW; 759 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 720 N⋅m (531 lb⋅ft) of torque at 6,750 rpm. The weight saving measures such as the extensive use of carbon fibre, and titanium in the exhaust system has brought the weight down to 1,525 kg (3,362 lb), giving the car a power-to-weight ratio of 0.5 hp/kg. The Aventador SVJ can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 8.6 seconds and can attain a top speed of over 352 km/h (219 mph).
A camouflaged prototype of the variant had previously made a new production car lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in July 2018, beating the previous record-holder, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS by setting a lap time of 6:44.97 with Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel achieved by using the Pirelli Pzero Trofeo R tyres available with the car as an option.
The Aventador SVJ is the first production V12 Lamborghini model to feature Lamborghini's Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. This allows the car to achieve 40% more downforce than the Aventador SV and 1% reduction in the coefficient of drag. The system adds aerodynamic components to the car including a disconnected front splitter, tri-dimensional air outlet on the bonnet, a large carbon fibre rear wing with a central fin, underbody aero design with vortex generators, and a large rear diffuser. The system works in conjunction with Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva 2.0 (LDVA 2.0) management system, which uses inertial sensors to control the car's aero in 500 milliseconds.
