Lambo Aventador S gets a facelift

Six years after the Lamborghini Aventador celebrated its global debut in Geneva, the Italian manufacturer returned to unveil the updated Aventador S at this year's show. With the 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12, Lamborghini has managed to turn it up a notch with an additional 39 hp, bringing the total to 730 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. Among the key engine changes are optimized Variable Valve Timing and Variable Intake Systems as well as an increase in the redline from 8,350 to 8,500 rpm.
The biggest change in the new Aventador S is the four wheel steering system. At low and medium speeds, it improves the vehicle's agility while leading to better stability at high speed.
Alongside the Strada, Sport and Corsa driving modes, the car also gets a so-called Ego mode that allows the driver to tweak the suspension and drivetrain settings.

U.S. deliveries of the Aventador S will commence in spring and start at a base of $421,350.
