Now available with a carbon fiber package and new Dione design forged alloy wheels, the 2013 Aventador is a two-door mid-engine supercar with a 0-60 time under 3 seconds. Under the hood drivers will find a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces a whopping 700 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque, granting the Aventador the highest power-weight ratio in its class. Electronically controlled 4WD is paired to a 7-speed semi-automatic transmission to enable an EPA estimated 11 mpg city and 18 mpg highway. Features are comprised of double wishbone front/rear suspension, optimized shocks, cylinder deactivation, start-stop technology, front and rear parking sensors, steering wheel mounted controls, iPod/iPhone integration, voice activated navigation, and hands-free phone capabilities. Safety is comprised of anti-lock braking, dual front side-mounted airbags, xenon HID headlights, stability control, traction control, electronic brake distribution, and tire pressure monitoring. The Aventador is backed by a 3-year/unlimited-mile warranty.Read more Read less
The Aventador gets several revisions for the 2013 model year. The most significant changes are actually in place to meet a strange goal for a nearly 700-hp supercar: fuel efficiency. Cylinder deactivation and start stop technology have both been incorporated into the Aventador increasing fuel economy, particularly on the highway. Other revisions include changes to the suspension to further optimize handling and some optional carbon fiber styling tweaks.
Incredible performance and blistering acceleration; technical sophistication; exclusivity; luxury appointments
The 2013 Aventador is the latest, greatest supercar offering from Lamborghini. The car is a tour de force of technology and internal combustion. Few other cars exist in the stratosphere of performance and exclusivity in which the Aventador lives. The McLaren MP4-12-C costs less, but it has four fewer cylinders and can't match the Aventador for performance. And while the Bugatti Veyron nearly doubles the power, it also quadruples the price. When examined next to its competition, the Aventador is a bona fide performance bargain.
