A Fearless Look A key aspect of our design philosophy demands that every Lamborghini must be instantly recognizable as such. The Aventador LP 700-4, with its uncompromisingly crisp contours, is the essence of our brand, poured into an extreme, aweinspiring look – eternally different, unmistakably Lamborghini. A Relentless Force 700HP, 350 KM/H, 0-100 KM/H in 2.9 SEC Built in Italy. Just arrived from the future. Lamborghini has a history of revolutionary

| 26 |

thinking. Whether in terms of design, like the iconic scissor doors, or in terms of technology such as the V12 engine and carbon-fiber technology, the Aventador LP 700-4 represents a whole new level of performance, sets new benchmarks in the super sports car segment, and provides a glimpse into the future. It’s a car that’s already achieved legendary status. A Timeless Powerhouse Handcraed in Sant’Agata Bolognese, naturally balanced and installed in a central, longitudinal position, they relentlessly power the Lamborghini legend and represent the driving force behind our cars and our brand.



Driving Dynamics During the development of a super sports car, it is crucial to always bear in mind its driving dynamics. No maer how powerful the engine is or how sophisticated the aerodynamics are: there is no driving fun if the car understeers in corners or loses its rear when accelerating. For this reason, the driving dynamics are so important to us. Our engineers make sure all suspension and drivetrain components are perfectly matched to each other. Thus, the Lamborghini Aventador is well controllable in all kinds of situations and enables a sportive driving style.

Interior The stunning design concept of the Lamborghini Aventador is continued in the interior, with the citation of hexagons and trapezia that can be found on the bodywork. You can also customize the interior to fit your taste – from the colour of the stitching on the seats to the leather. Take a seat behind the steering wheel, close the legendary scissor door and you will find yourself seated in the middle of the Aventador's control centre. www.lamborghini.com/en/models/aventador-lp700-4/overview/#!slide/2
