Lastly, Lamborghini was adamant that it had to work to iron out some of the issues of the previous model and the way it drove at the limit. In that sense, the 2017 Aventador S is a raging success from the house of the raging bull. It’s everything a V12 flagship Lamborghini should be and it is easier to drive than ever before, without diluting any of the thrill.
If you ever drive an Aventador S in anger and you aren’t left trying to work out how you can afford one, you should probably check to see if you have a pulse.
The 4WS changes the Lamborghini Aventador’s attitude dramatically. Simply put, it’s now an engaging, satisfying car to hammer hard. Forget the V12 brick wrapped by inescapably sexy body work that was it’s predecessor, this Italian dream car is a V12 shark whose dexterity and response time is voracious.
I was sweating in apprehension before I drove the Aventador S and, I believe, understandably so. But after sliding it around on the racetrack and navigating the road with brio, I’m feeling like a champion — calm and very cool.
