The 2021 Lamborghini Aventador is a nostalgic take on technology in a world that has become increasingly dependent on it. With its flashy facade and powerful V-12, the large Lambo is a fitting tribute to classic supercars. Although the 730-plus-hp, 6.5-liter engine behind the driver is naturally powerful and popular, the Aventador’s automatic-manual transmission can make it difficult to drive in traffic. The convertible version of this exotic Italian beauty looks great, but the top can be cumbersome to take off. The Aventador, despite its large size, is quite athletic. The track-tuned SVJ motor makes it even more fun to drive canyon roads and log lap times. Although the 2021 Aventador is a very expensive car and not subtle, it is a great tribute to an extinct old-school supercar.
What’s new for 2021?
The Aventador will receive minor updates for 2021. The S now has the option to be fitted with Arancio Dac center wheels locks and forged Leirion tires. You can now order the badge in exposed carbon fibre for your SVJ.
Pricing and Which One To Buy
The Aventador is a supercar that can be customized in a very unique way and it costs a little bit. We’d choose the top-ofthe-line SVJ Roadster if our literal pockets were large enough. Although it is slightly heavier than the coupe that set the Nurburgring Nordschleife lap record, it is much prettier. You don’t have to fully enjoy the V-12-powered exotic, so why spend half a million on it? This is possible with the roadster.
Performance, Transmission and Engine
The Aventador powertrain hierarchy starts with the mid-mounted, naturally aspirated V-12 6.5-liter that produces 730 horsepower. A seven-speed automatic-manual transmission transfers the engine’s 509 pounding-feet to the wheels. The basic configuration is the same for all three variants. However, the track-focused SVJ (which means Superveloce Jota), has many enhancements that unlock more horsepower and torque. This beast and its roofless cousin were both extremely powerful and incredibly fast. We experienced their incredible acceleration and kidney-crushing cornering force. Although the machines were heavy, they could turn in corners with ease. However, their amazing grip and four-wheel steering systems allowed them to change directions quickly. We also drove the Aventador S and Aventador S roadsters and felt that the Aventador S was more responsive to the V-12’s ethereal timbre.
Fuel Economy and Real World MPG
The Aventador is among the most fuel-efficient cars on the market, with a fuel economy rating in the single digits. According to the EPA, all models should achieve 9 mpg in cities and 15 mpg highway. We have not had the chance to test the estimates of the government on the 75-mph highway fuel economy route. This route simulates real world mpg as part of our extensive testing.
Interior, Comfort, & Cargo
Every Lamborghini Aventador has a set scissor doors, which swing open in typical Lamborghini fashion. Although the interior is low-slung and showing signs of age, it can be customized with premium materials or personalized options. It is not able to hold small items and the luggage space is very limited. A digital gauge cluster is located on the dashboard. It changes its layout when you choose a different drive mode: Sport, Sport, or Corsa. Ego mode allows for you to customize settings for powertrain and steering.
Connectivity and Infotainment
The Aventador’s current infotainment system has outdated graphics and poor integration. The company also offers voice commands and Apple CarPlay capabilities. It also offers a performance recorder that can save lap times and track data. Buyers can choose the upgraded audio system, which adds door-mounted tweeters and subwoofers to the dashboard.
