Did You Know ?
The Lamborghini Aventador is a mid-engined sports car produced by the Italian manufacturer Lamborghini.
Launched on 28 February 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show, five months after its initial unveiling in Sant'Agata Bolognese, the vehicle, internally codenamed LB834, was designed to replace the ten-year-old Murciélago as the new flagship model.
The Aventador was designed by Italian designer Filippo Perini. Similar to the earlier limited-edition Lamborghini Reventon, its heavy use of sharp creases and planar surfaces are indicative of Lamborghini's contemporary styling direction which were directly inspired by the aircraft of the United States Military's Stealth Fighter Program, namely the F-117A Nighthawk and the F-22 Raptor.
In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador is also named after a fighting bull. Aventador (pronounced: [aβentaˈðoɾ]) was a bull that fought particularly valiantly in the bull ring of Saragossa, Spain in 1993.
