The Heart Of It Is…

Under the hood is a naturally-aspirated V12 engine rated at 720 horsepower resulting in a 0-60 mph acceleration in just 2.8 seconds. Top speed stands at 217 mph. according to Stephen Winkelmann, “The new 2017 Lamborghini Aventador continues to push the boundaries in terms of pure driving emotion, and performance. The Superveloce model represents the most exclusive, emotional, and pure production model in the history of Lamborghini’s brand.”

Even Lighter?

Reduction of weight, new technologies, and enhancements of driving dynamics seem to form the focal point of what constituted the Lamborghini Aventador changes for 2017. There was extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum materials during its construction. The fenders, rocker panels, and door panels were perhaps the areas where more lightweight materials were used. Also in carbon fiber are the fixed air intakes, and the rear wing.

Interior Has Been Completely Changed?

The interior too was completely redesigned, with weight reduction being the focus. The door panels and the sports bucket seats are also made of carbon. Combine the lightweight savings, to the increased power, and enhanced braking and lateral dynamics and you’ve got yourself a phenomenal acceleration. To sum it up, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador is amazingly powerful. But equally precise and light-footed.

Are There Any Possible Alternatives?

In terms of rivalry, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is the only one that seems to dare nip the Aventador’s heels. Motivation for the two-door coupe comes from a massive 6.3L V12 engine rated at 730 horsepower and 509 lbs. ft. of torque. This power enables it achieve 0-60 mph in just 3.0 seconds. Its top speed stands at 211 mph.

2017 Lamborghini Aventador USA Release Date & Price

When it comes to pricing, expect the new model to return with an asking price that starts from an MSRP of about $530,075. Just 500 examples of these will be built. As for the release date, expect the new model to go for sale sometime in the first half of 2017.

The design embodies technical superiority alongside aggressive power. Ensuring aerodynamic balance was the main objective aerodynamic engineers set out to achieve from the beginning. As is now evident, both aerodynamic efficiency, and vertical downforce have been achieved. Downforce has improved by over 170% while aerodynamic efficiency has gone up one and a half times over the existing standard model.

Less Noticeable Frontal Intakes

Up front, the big air intakes make way for two additional V-Shaped vents and are shorter than before. They look less dramatic than before giving the Aventador a motor-inspired look. The side profile also gains a bit of changes. Extra air intakes have now been added. Around back, the intakes at the sides are a tad bit smaller while the taillights are thinner than before.

Subtle Redesign Of The 2017 Lamborghini Aventador Interior

As can be seen from the spy pictures, the interior changes are almost impossible to notice. We don’t think Lamborghini will offer any substantial changes on the inside. If anything, a couple of new upholstery colors could be added. The infotainment and instrument cluster screens could however be updated. Those seeking more features could get them via the customization package that will be available.
