Footnotes

  • Latest in a line of spectacular supercars from Lamborghini stretching back to the iconic Miura of 1966, the Aventador was launched at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, replacing the ageing Murcièlago as the Sant'Agata factory's flagship model. Designed by Filippo Perini, the new mid-engine coupé borrowed heavily from Lamborghini's limited edition Reventón and the Estoque concept car. One of its more striking features was the scissor doors - a 21st Century supercar 'must have'.

    Like its predecessors, the newcomer was powered by a V12 engine, in the Aventador's case an all-new 6½-litre unit producing 690bhp. Power reached the ground via a seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox and electronically controlled four-wheel drive transmission. A top speed of 349km/h (217mph) was claimed by the factory, yet the French Sport Auto magazine managed to wind 'their' car up to 370km/h (230mph).

    With the original Aventador LP700-4 being phased out after five years in production, Lamborghini unveiled the extensively revised Aventador S in December 2016 at Sant'Agata, with the car's official launch taking place at the Geneva Motor Show the following March. Lamborghini's head of design Mitja Borkert was responsible for the car's updated exterior, while the 6.5-litre V12 now produced 740PS (730bhp), an increase of 40PS (39bhp) over the superseded LP700-4. With maximum torque of 509lb/ft at 5,500rpm, the Aventador S can reach 97km/h (60mph) in 2.9 seconds on the way to its top speed of 349 km/h (217mph).

    In addition, the Aventador S received four-wheel steering, permanent four-wheel drive, and revised suspension controlled by Lamborghini's Dinamica Veicolo Attiva (LDVA) control unit. The LDVA has four selectable modes: Sport, Strada (Street), Corsa (Track) and Ego (Individual). Carbon ceramic brakes are standard. Borkert made relatively few changes to the Aventador's overall look, the most noticeable being a new nose, cleaner side intakes, and a new rear diffuser.

    Despite the fact that its claimed performance figures represented no advance over the original, the Aventador S was rated a significant step forward by Car magazine: "The difference isn't subtle. Where the old car feels very nose-led and slightly stubborn, its steering lethargic where you need flighty flicks left-to-right, the S dances through the slalom with a balance that feels much more in line with your hips, and steering that feels light years faster. You're also more aware of that heavy V12 shifting about behind you, helping point the nose...
    "The Aventador has always been unique in its segment, but the S takes it to a whole new level. Would we buy one? Absolutely."

    Offered from a UK private collection, this stunning Aventador S was purchased by the owner as a Christmas present to himself in 2020 having had two previous private owners. There can be few better-equipped examples in existence; this car's specification listing running to some 3½ closely typed A4 pages! The term 'fully loaded' does not begin to do it justice.

    The Lamborghini's first service was carried out by H R Owen on 2nd August 2018 at 633 miles; the second on 22nd August 2019 at 2,675 miles; and the most recent on 20th September 2020 at 4,406 miles (the current odometer reading is circa 4,900 miles). Having been enjoyed, the Aventador is now making way for a Porsche 918 (it should be noted that the private plate is being retained). MoT'd to September 2021, the car is presented in superb condition and will be driven to the auction.
