The 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S supercar is a beauty to behold. The latest iteration of this well loved flagship supercar from the Italian luxury carmaker packs 740BHP and a stunning $420,000 price tag.

The new Lamborghini Aventador S packs quite a handful of updates both in the exterior and interior designs. For one, the new Aventador S is equipped with new front and rear bumpers, air intakes and diffusers. Although these changes add some flair when seen in the aesthetics point of view, the main reason behind the changes is to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency.

 

According to the Free Press Journal, the Aventador S' new front splitter and diffuser increased the supercar's downforce by as much as 130 percent. The active rear wing and the new three-pipe exhaust system were also designed to account for more downforce. On the inside, the dashboard is now adorned by a new TFT infotainment display. Much of the interior remain unchanged.

Under the hood, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S still packs the same 5.6-liter V12 engine. However, Lamborghini made some fine tuning and increased the engine's power output by 40BHP and tweaked its torque to max at 690NM. All these massive power are delivered on all four wheels.

The Lamborghini Aventador S has a seven-speed single clutch gearbox, according to Jalopnik. All these upgrades allow the supercar to accelerate from zero to 100kph in just 2.9 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 350kph.

Additionally, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S is the first production car from the Italian automaker to feature four-wheel steering. At low speeds, the rear wheels turn at the opposite direction. However, all four wheels synchronize when turning at high speeds. This allows the car to have a shorter turning radius when running at low speed, and better cornering when the car is pumped to its limits.
