Automobili Lamborghini has reached an important historical milestone with its V12 model: in nine years the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory has produced 10,000 Aventadors. Having picked numerous regional awards in recent years, the V12 platform has proven popular with Middle East customers.
A hugely popular car in the Middle East, the Aventador has received numerous accolades at regional award shows including the S Roadster winning Supercar of the Year at the Middle East Car of the Year (MECOTY) Awards in 2019, and the SVJ Roadster scooping up the same award in 2020.
The Aventador range debuted in 2011 in the coupé version as 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-fibre monocoque produced in the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory is “single shell”: distinguished from other solutions, it combines the cockpit, floor and roof of the car in a single structure, ensuring extremely high structural rigidity and thus the maximum performance in terms of dynamic behaviour and passive safety.
A new high-performance V12 engine was developed for the Aventador LP 700-4: with 700 HP (515 kW) of power at 8,250 rpm, it set a new benchmark in the world of super sports cars at the time of its introduction, enabling 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 robotized transmission guarantees thrilling ultra-fast shifts; the push-rod suspension system offers driving precision comparable to that of racing cars. And then there are the iconic upward-opening doors, similar to those of the legendary Countach and the V12 models that followed it.
In November of 2012, Automobili Lamborghini presented the Roadster version of the Aventador. Its roof is composed of two sections and is made entirely of carbon fibre, using different technologies including RTM and Forged Composite®, technologies that ensure the maximum aesthetic impact and extremely lightweight. Each section of the roof weighs less than 6 kg. The rear pillar was redesigned to provide the removable roof with proper support, to house an automatic passenger protection system and to ventilate the engine compartment sufficiently.
Six years later, in 2018 the Aventador SVJ was introduced. “SV”, as per 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 Germany’s famous Nürburgring-Nordschleife track, covering the 20.6 km lap in just 6:44.97 minutes.
In 2019 the one-off Aventador S by Skyler Grey was unveiled, a symbol of the fusion of two concepts of art. On one hand, there is Lamborghini’s automotive art, where the unique design of the forms, always characterized by taut lines, three-dimensional volumes, geometries and stylistic elements of the past, is joined with pioneering technological solutions. On the other hand, Skyler Grey used the main techniques of street art – airbrushing, spray guns, rollers and stencils – to personalize the car body in his typical Pop style in orange and yellow.
The car with chassis number 10,000 is an Aventador SVJ Roadster in Grigio Acheso (grey) colour with Rosso Mimir (red) livery and Ad Personam interior in Rosso Alala (red) and black.
