2017 Lamborghini Aventador S

The next generation Aventador S benefits from a broad range of upgrades including four-wheel steering, increased power, and improved aerodynamics.

The body has undergone some subtle changes focused on improved aerodynamic efficiency, downforce, and cooling. A longer front splitter and two air ducts in the side of the front bumper improve airflow and channel air to the rear radiator. The rear features a diffuser with vertical fins surrounding three geometrical exhaust oulets. Above is an active rear wing that shifts to three different positions depending on speed and drive mode. Front downforce has been improved by over 130% compared to the earlier Aventador, and efficiency of the rear wing has improved from 50-400% depending on its position.

Power comes from a still naturally-aspirated V12 with an 11.8 compression ratio and a total output of 740 hp from its 6.5 liters. This is a power increase of 40 hp from its predecessor. The engine also features stop-and-start and cyclinder deactivation technology to maximize its efficiency.

All-new for 2017 is four-wheel steering, a feature that is on the way to become de rigueur for supercars. At lower speeds, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction from the front ones, offering "turn on a dime" agility. At high speeds, the rear wheels turn in the same direction as the front wheels, which creates the effect of a longer wheelbase and thus enhances stability.

The four-wheel steering works with Lamborghini's latest magneto-rheological suspension with new suspension geometry for enhanced stability and road-holding, including icy surfaces.
