Here at HotCars, we’ve been fortunate enough to take a closer look at the Pino Verde 2014 Aventador for our latest car stories, and we have a big thank you to Dream Rentals for letting this happen. This $320,000 supercar is amazing, and its protective layer of paint means that this supercar, unlike many others, was out there in the real world. Let’s take a closer look at this totally insane supercar, which is still catching your eye in 2022.
body and aerodynamics
The fighter-inspired body certainly set the world on fire when it was revealed at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. At the time, the idea of a carbon fiber monocoque was just an idea. That was until the Aventador came out. Given how heavy the car is, carbon fiber was definitely needed to keep that weight down. But maybe it’s in the aerodynamics department where the Aventador really shines. It’s incredible to look at, but looking at it from the front, it might remind you a bit of a carved Halloween pumpkin.
The vents under the engine are also reminiscent of Batman from The Dark Knight. It’s probably entirely fitting that Bruce Wayne actually drives a Lamborghini in this movie. Underneath the Aventador’s headlights are the S ducts, which surprisingly takes air through the bottom of the car and eventually exits the top of the hood to aid in downforce. And those S-channels definitely look crazy. And if you like crazy, you’ll love the four exhaust pipes combined into one in the rear, the Super pipe, in a hexagonal housing. In fact, this hexagonal appearance appears to be present on a lot of this car, including the side mirrors.
More Madness via Aventador
The theme of madness is seen throughout this car. From the massive wheels, to the F1-inspired push-bar shocks and ridiculous carbon-ceramic brakes that, if we’re being honest, are the size of a pretty big pizza. And if you want to take this vehicle anywhere there is no track, you may need to raise the suspension. A ride height of 125mm may not make you more than just a magazine or paper. And, as you might expect from the Aventador, it’s an inside-inspired fighter jet when it comes to switches and levers.
We have switches for the lights under the steering wheel, switches on the center console of the windows, a lever for suspension lift, electronic stability control (ESC), and parking sensors. They all look like they belong in a fighter plane. There’s Audi influence across the board as well, with German ownership of the company’s brand meaning the electronics are vastly better than they were before the late 1990s. These keys and buttons are easily accessible and clearly marked. These seats are a mixture of Alcantara and leather, and overall, the interior is absolutely gorgeous. But the best part about the car is what’s under the hood. Or the trunk, because it is rear-wheel drive.
The 700-horsepower V12 is the first of a new generation of V12s to come out of a Lamborghini workshop in 50 years. This helps elevate the Aventador above the Ferrari 458, and best of all, the engine is fully visible from its rear housing, so you can witness the great magic of Lamborghini. Technically, the Aventador is an LP 700-4, which means that this car has all-wheel drive. All that torque is nicely split between all four wheels, and all the power is handled via a single-clutch automated manual transmission.
Spanish fighting bull and our final thoughts
Like most Lamborghini cars, the Aventador is named after a Spanish fighting bull, and the Aventador actually fighting in Zaragoza, Aragon, in 1993. If we were to sum up this car, what would we say? Well, you can’t take a bad picture of this exact car. Hence, the massive music video appeal. Maybe it’s those scissor doors that want us all to pose next to this cool car. There is just something about this car, even with all the others that Lamborghini has made since its inception, that screams out as one of the best supercars most of us will ever be able to afford.
