Which Aventador does Edmunds recommend?

Even if they've gotten much more civilized in recent times, Lamborghinis have always had a reputation for driving like a proverbial bull in a china shop. They're low to the ground, have limited sight lines and stiff suspension, and are both physically and visually loud, as well as require the driver to adapt to the car. Having said that, all Aventadors benefit from Lamborghini's custom-order program and feature modern touches such as navigation and launch control.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

If you heard a car had a carbon-fiber monocoque, a mid-mounted engine, carbon-ceramic brakes and rocker-arm-style suspension, you might think it's a race car, right? But what if it also had a naturally aspirated V12 engine, all-wheel drive, swing-up doors and aggressive bodywork? That's the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador. It's unique in the realm of supercars and does not need any introduction.

Trim levels & features

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is available as a coupe or as a roadster with removable top. The Aventador SV LP 750-4 — the SV means Superveloce or literally "super fast" — is available in both coupe and roadster form as well. It weighs less and possesses increased power and more aggressive aerodynamic styling in the form of a front splitter, rear diffuser and gigantic wing.

With a 6.5-liter V12 engine, the Aventador LP 700-4 sends 700 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels via a seven-speed, single-clutch automatic transmission. Also available as an open-top convertible, the Aventador boasts a carbon-fiber monocoque in a mid-engine configuration and rocker-arm suspension. Trademark swing-up doors reveal a fighter-plane-cockpit inspired interior.

Racy exterior colors, such as Arancio Argos and Giallo Orion, can be complemented with two-tone leather interior concepts called Sportivo and Elegante. A rearview camera is available, and like many luxury sedans, Lamborghini has a custom-build program called Ad Personam that can handle special requests.

If the standard Aventador doesn't provide enough downforce or grip for you, the Aventador SV LP 750-4 may provide you with the performance you're looking for. Its V12 engine produces, you guessed it, 750 hp and 508 lb-ft of torque to all four center-lock wheels. The SV weighs approximately 100 pounds less than a comparable standard Aventador. The bodywork on the SV is practically right off a race car; it has carbon-fiber door panels and rear wing, as well as rockers and fenders in a version of carbon-fiber sheets called SMC, or sheet molding compound (essentially injection-molded carbon fiber). The inside features more carbon fiber in the doors and bucket seats, as well as the deletion of the infotainment system and sound-deadening material. Combined with the weight-loss program, the SV also includes magnetorheological dampers, downforce-generating front and rear fascia, as well as a gigantic rear diffuser and wing.

And finally, if you want to have the most ridiculous experience, Lamborghini offers the Aventador SV as a roadster. And, yes, you can also get the SV in whatever color combinations your mind can muster.

Trim tested

Edmunds has not yet driven any version of this vehicle. The following is our first take on what's significant about it and what you can expect.

Driving

Non-turbocharged V12s are dying out. Thankfully, the Aventador arguably has the best. It's inherently smooth and insanely powerful, and the shriek from the exhaust and intake at 8,000 rpm is to be savored. Steering is heavy and direct, and the gear changes race carlike.

Comfort

The Aventador is not a touring car, but the cockpit and controls are laid out logically and it's actually easy to just get in and operate. Ergonomically, it's a race car, and the sound signature may not be appreciated by your neighbors.

Interior

Do you like cockpit-like interiors? If so, the Aventador should satisfy you. You interface with the car through loads of mechanical switches. Then there are the swing-up doors. They look great but don't really make it easier to get in or out.

Utility

There's no convenient place to put your wallet or purse and phone (which cannot be in your pocket), and the front trunk is small. But utility is not why you're buying an Aventador.

Technology

Technology is all over the place on the Aventador, but most of it is there to service the driving experience. We're just thankful it has a stereo and Bluetooth.

More about the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador

The 2017 Lamborghini Aventador is expensive, loud, superlative and exclusive. But it's also a functional art piece, style statement, engineering exercise, and an homage to the emotions that automobiles can bring out in people.

A non-turbocharged 6.5-liter V12 engine sits right behind the driver, in the middle of the car, and the engine and suspension all hang off its carbon-fiber chassis. Power is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed, single-clutch automatic transmission and then through an all-wheel-drive system.

It's low, wide and long. Sight lines to the rear are impossible, and frankly they're fairly bad to the passenger side as well. Deep sills make getting into and out of the car difficult, even with the swing-up doors. There's a trunk in the front that's big enough for two duffel bags, but don't put anything that can melt or needs to stay cool because the compartment gets warm from radiator heat.

Having said that, all of these issues dissolve the moment you pull onto a long stretch of twisty mountain road. The stiff suspension that rattled your teeth in the city keeps the chassis in perfect position over the ground to maximize tire grip. The seating position that was uncomfortable on the highway just a few moments ago is now perfect for holding you in place during high-g cornering and acceleration. The heavy steering and stiff brake pedal are now communicative and let you know precisely what the front wheels are feeling.

The Aventador SV, or Superveloce, tops the range. Thanks to a diet of carbon fiber throughout the bodywork, and the removal of both sound deadening and entertainment system, the SV drops approximately 100 pounds compared to a standard Aventador. Engine hardware changes allow the 6.5-liter V12 engine to produce 750 hp sent to all four wheels as other Aventadors. The suspension features magnetorheological dampers that can be adjusted by the driver, or as conditions dictate, and the aerodynamics package is upped to 11 for increased downforce.

The standard Aventador and the Aventador SV are also available as roadsters, with removable tops. And should none of the available colors or leather options not please your palette, all models can be customized through Lamborghini's Ad Personam program. No matter which Lamborghini you're interested in, let Edmunds be your guide to buying the perfect Aventador.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Lamborghini Aventador?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
