The Lamborghini Aventador is almost six years old. Can you believe that? It’s more than halfway to the end of its projected 10-year product life. Seems like just yesterday we were applauding wildly the Geneva reveal of this stunning $400,000 supercar, which is wide as a Chevy Tahoe and much improved over the woeful Murleilago it replaced.
The new Lamborghini Aventador S is a midcycle refresh—and, after the Roadster and the SuperVeloce, the third major iteration—of a car that had a beautiful, naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 and was always a little too big for primetime. The heft and size (it is 80-inches across and sometimes feels every inch of it) was crying out for a slimming down. A couple years back, we tested out the stripped-down speed demon Aventador SuperVeloce at the Circuit De Barcelona, and realized how much performance potential was lurking in this lovely chassis. Of course, at $540,000, the SV is in a different class.
