2018 Lamborghini Aventador S
Lamborghini’s most aggressive car definitely has to be the Aventador which was introduced as a replacement for the Murcielago back in 2011. The car has received plenty of variants and special edition since then takes the Aventador LP and also the LP 700-4 Roadster for example.
Now this aggressive Aventador Coupe has received its updates for the year 2017 and the good news is the updates are not limited to cosmetics but it has received some mechanical changes as well under the skin. Apart from all that the car still retains the same 6.5 Liter V12 unit from the Aventador. However the new car gets some power upgrades which actually makes things slightly more interesting while the seven-speed automated manual transmission and all-wheel-drive system are carried over from the Aventador.

How does it feel when a small thing that you own gets destroyed infront of your eyes? Be it your cellphone or your watch but these are actually affordable thing which you can buy anytime you want. But imagine an expensive and one of a kind exotic car getting destroyed definitely sends a chill down your spine.
Well that is what you will watch in this video, the whole incident took place in Taiwan where a person’s exotic ride got ‘torn apart’ by the Taiwanese Government. You read that right; the car was actually torn apart by the Taiwanese Government right in front of the camera and crowd. According to the reports the owner’s exotic ride was confiscated by the Taiwanese Government when the person failed to produce a registered licence. The person was fined but he appealed to the court but his appeals were rejected.
Just to make an example of that person the Taiwanese Government actually takes the car to the scrap yard and destroys the entire car. The Lamborghini Murcielago which is the predecessor of the Aventador packed a lot of punch from its 6.5 Litre V12 unit which was capable of producing about 661 Hp and 660 Nm of torque. The car ripped apart here was the SV variant which was capable of reaching 0-100 km/h mark in 340+ km/h mark.
What’s Cooking Inside Lamborghini’s Bologna Factory Could This Be A New Car: Video
It looks like Lamborghini is all set to introduce a new car to their exciting product lineup. Oh no! It is definitely not a fake news neither we are trying to surprise you all. Lamborghini recently dropped a new teaser video on their official You Tube channel.
The short teaser video kept all of us wondering what Lamborghini is upto now and specially those last few lines “What will be next?”. The teaser video gave us some hint that whatever it is be it the facelift Aventador (the old car featured in the video) or the slightly more powerful and sportier variant of the Aventador, it will definitely be powered by the perhaps slightly more updated Lamborghini V12 powertrain.
Now we assume that this car will be unveiled soon because we are just only few more weeks away from the biggest car event of the New Year, The North American International Auto show. Now we are still not sure that weather is there any chance of Lamborghini unveiling this new car at that show but this new teaser surely looks interesting.
If you actually ask us perhaps this could be the new generation Aventador which might come with an updated V12 powertrain.
