The Aventador is the replacement to the Lamborghini Murciélago, which had been in production up to 2010. With a new 6.5 L V12 engine codenamed L539, the Aventador is Lamborghini's first model with the company's all new V12 engine since the 3.5 L powerplant in the 350 GT. In keeping with Lamborghini's tradition of naming cars after fighting bulls, the Aventador is named after the bull of the same name that fought particularly valiantly in the bull ring of Zaragoza, Spain in 1993 and earned the Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera for its courage in the arena.
The Aventador has been produced in various special edition/high performance variants, including the LP 750-4 SV and LP 740-4 S, the latter of which features four-wheel steering and has replaced the LP 700-4.
Just being in the presence of an Aventador is enough to make one feel regal. Driving this mad bull can be likened to finding Elvis and winning the lottery… on the same day; thrilling, fortuitous, and maybe a bit surreal. The Aventador exudes sensual power, drop dead beauty, and performance numbers that seem derived from NASA blueprints. This is a bareknuckle brawler of a supercar, brandishing 700 bhp and more than 500 foot/lbs. of torque. In short, the Aventador’s potential is limited less by its engineering than by the bravery of its driver.
Just being in the presence of an Aventador is enough to make one feel regal. To drive one is an experience that ranks closely with finding Elvis and winning the lottery... simultaneously. The car exudes of sensual power, drop dead beauty, and speed-fueled desire. The Aventador is everything an exotic car should be.
The new 6.5 L (6,498 cc) V12 engine, codenamed L539, is the first all-new powerplant since the 3.5 L engine in the 350GT and produces 690 hp (515 kW) and 509 ft·lb (690 N·m) of torque, although the Forza renditions of the car have a wrong power output of 700 hp (522 kW) despite that "LP 700-4" refers to the car's longitudinal mid-engine position ("LP"), power output in PS ("700"), and four-wheel-drive ("4"). The Aventador's forzamotorsport.net description also incorrectly claims said power output. With a claimed dry weight of 3472 lb (1575 kg) and an actual curb weight of 4085 lb (1853 kg), the Aventador LP 700-4 has a power-to-weight ratio of 372 hp (277 kW) per tonne. The Aventador features a seven-speed single-clutch semi-automatic transmission built by Graziano Transmissioni, which results in faster shifting times.
As with the Murciélago, the Aventador makes use of active aerodynamics; it has rear side flaps and a rear wing that deploy at 60 mph (97 km/h) and retract at speeds above 150 mph (241 km/h).
Lamborghini claims that the Aventador LP 700-4 is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and a top speed exceeding 217 mph (350 km/h). In testing, the Aventador was measured as being capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3 seconds and 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.4 seconds, as well as a quarter mile in 10.9 seconds at 133 mph (214 km/h).sport auto measured a top speed of 230 mph (370 km/h), which is exceeded in the Horizon games as 236 mph (380 km/h). The Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of the car reaches 224 mph (361 km/h).
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4's performance is based on that of the Murciélago LP640, with an AWD drivetrain mated to a seven-speed sequential semi-automatic transmission favoring quick acceleration with virtually no wheelspin, evidenced by the Aventador reaching 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.4 seconds, and efficient braking. While it shows moderate understeer around corners, especially due to its weight of 4085 lb (1853 kg), the Aventador's AWD drivetrain helps maintain grip around corners without the risk of spinning out. With a stock top speed of 236 mph (380 km/h), reachable in the Horizon titles (it is downgraded to 224 mph (361 km/h) in Forza Motorsport 7), the Aventador LP 700-4 is the third fastest Lamborghini production car by top speed, behind the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV's 237 mph (382 km/h) and Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4's 232 mph (373 km/h).
The Liberty Walk upgrade preset for the Aventador LP 700-4 gives the car sharper steering and takes advantage of the AWD system and acceleration, making it a better contender for grip-based race events.
In Forza Horizon 3, when fully upgraded, the Aventador LP 700-4 becomes extremely fast and is capable of reaching extreme speeds well above 273 mph (440 km/h). A well-tuned Aventador is capable of completing the full one-mile drag route within less than 20 seconds.
In the Forza games, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4's name and abbreviation in Forza Horizon 2 omit the space between "LP" and "700-4", thus displaying the name and Forza Horizon 2 abbreviation as "Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4" and "LP700-4", respectively.
In Forza Horizon, the Aventador's V12 is available only for Lamborghini cars.
Upgradable to 1515 hp (1130 kW) and 1101 ft·lb (1493 N·m) of torque, the Aventador LP 700-4's 6.5 L V12 is the most powerful engine swap option in the series.
The Liberty Walk widebody kit for the Aventador was originally intended for the Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario, which isn't featured in the Forza games.
Given a weight of 3472 lb (1575 kg) in the Forza games, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is lighter than the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV in all games up to Forza Horizon 3.
However, as of Forza Motorsport 7, the Aventador LP 700-4 now weighs 4085 lb (1853 kg), which is its weight specification in real life (US-spec Aventador, all fluids) and yet now makes the Aventador SV correctly lighter than the Aventador LP 700-4.
Contrary to its real life rendition, the Aventador LP 700-4's display does not fit on its dashboard. This error is also seen on the Aventador SV, Centenario, and Veneno.
