Top Innovations of the Lamborghini Aventador

Top Innovations of the Lamborghini Aventador

Of all the supercars that have come and gone over the last few decades, nothing holds attention quite like the Lamborghini Aventador.  Part of allure is the history behind the "Big Lambo." The Aventador can trace its lineage back to 1966 when Lamborghini released the Miura, the first 2 seat supercar with show-stopping looks and a transversely-mounted V12 engine. When first sold, the Miura was the fastest production road car in the world and the absolute toast of the motoring press.

When released in 2011, the Aventador represented the evolution of the Miura through the Countach, Murcielago, and Diablo generations. It was outfitted with an all-new 6.5-liter V-12 that offered an outrageous 690 bhp at 8250 rpm. And it was a looker. Over the course of its eight model years, Lamborghini outfitted the Aventador's missile-like profile with all sorts of wings and splitters in the name of downforce while retaining its overall fighter-jet aesthetic. 
Today, the Aventador offers a prodigious amount of technology in its LP 700-4 model.  With innovations introduced over the years in the LP 700-4, Superveloce, S, and SVJ versions, the current Aventador is a technological marvel. In particular, the LP 700-4 leads the industry with three major advances: a complete carbon fiber chassis, all-wheel steering, and state-of-the-art adaptive suspension system.

Can you tell me more about the carbon fiber chassis?

Actually, it's not really a chassis in the strict definition of the word. The heart of the Aventador LP 700-4 is a "single shell" carbon fiber monocoque. This design combines the car cockpit, floor, and roof in a single structure. Together with the two front and rear aluminum sub-frames, it is a design that offers ultra-high structural rigidity and an exceptionally light weight.

Can you tell me more about the all-wheel steering?

Though all-wheel steering is not a new idea, it is utterly foreign in the realm of supercars. The concept is this by allowing the rear wheels to turn in concert with the front, the Aventador S can deliver an unparalleled level of control.

This is how it works: Two separate actuators on the rear wheels react within milliseconds to the driver's steering, allowing real-time angle adjustment. At low speeds, the rear wheels will turn the opposite direction of the front wheels which achieves a tight turning radius. On the other hand, at high speed, the front and rear wheels are turned in the same direction as the steering, an arrangement that allows the wheelbase to be essentially increased, which leads to far higher stability.

Can you tell me more about the active suspension?

Since the very first version, the Lamborghini Aventador has been fitted with a push rod suspension system.  The system features rods attached to the lower part of the hub housing of each wheel, which transmit force to the shock absorbers. The Lamborghini Push Rod suspension system incorporates magnetorheological shock absorbers (MRS) on the Aventador Superveloce. This "adaptive suspension" feature also reduces front-end diving when braking.
