Lamborghini Aventador Review

The Lamborghini Aventador complies wit the expectation of being a safe car to drive. At 690bhp with a zero to 62mph capability, nothing is expected less of such a supercar. But how it stands out against other, flashier competitors is another matter. Does it hope to perform subtly but surely like its predecessors, the Diablo, Counach, and Murcielago? Or does the latest generation seek to take it a notch up in terms of performance? Read on to know how the Aventador fares in balancing state of the art technology and maintaining its old school supercar charm.

Pros

The Aventador sports a brand new design that enables the Lamborghini to show off its own take on the dream supercar. Some of the innovative features included in the Aventador include a 6.5-litre V12 motor, a full carbonfibre monocoque, and even race-derived pushrod suspension. All these are packaged under the distinct shape the Lamborghini has been known for. Upgraded features in its exterior design include large cooling vents that come out from the flanks and a deployable rear spoiler. Another great upgrade is the robotized seven-speed manual gearbox, which replaces the dual-clutch automatic system. Instead this gearbox features the fastest shift you can achieve given its configuration. Central haldex coupling allows power to flow throughout all four corners of the gearbox. The Aventador’s power is capped off by the rear wheel’s mechanical locking item and the electronically controlled differential up front.

The interior also impresses, particularly with the TFT instrument panel that sports aesthetics from a skunsworks fighter aircraft. The look may not appeal to most, but it does everything required from the driver. This also makes the cabin accessible and easy to operate. Drivers will also have no problems taking in the vehicle’s low and wide visibility. Boot space is adequate and enhanced by an additional lid box found between the seats.

Expect nothing less of the Aventador’s speed: arriving at 62mph from standstill only takes 2.9 seconds. Traction from the vehicle’s all-wheel drive complements this experience, along with its mid-engine configuration, 690bhp power, and a gearbox that can upshift to 50 milliseconds. Ride and handling is impressive in terms of hydraulic steering, gaining higher speeds, and appropriate gearing. Grip is able to persist as you drive the car throughout each speed and inch of the distance. The vehicle’s stopping power is another added plus, not only transitioning smoothly into zero speed but also not requiring an extra push on the pedal.

Cons

The incredible speed of the Aventador has its downsides. There’s a tendency for the vehicle to acclimatize quickly, preventing power delivery from being smooth and linear. The gearbox may be light and small in size, but its power not enough for a consistent performance. Parking is also a challenge especially when driving under the slow and jerky automatic function. The manual comes out as the recommended gearbox, leaving the automatic as a wasted option. The Sport manual is the most effective of the five configurations, while the other four don’t offer the same quality in terms of performance and flexibility.
