|2012 lamborghini lp700-4|
Start on the shimmering asphalt of the Formula 1 race track of Vallelunga test, 33 kilometers north of Rome. The test here Aventador is bright white and the 4.1-kilometer circuit, with its sometimes very narrow seven right and three left-handers has also within itself. On the Vallelunga track-shows the Aventador what he can really do. The ten curves for each round master of street racers with the bull logo on the hood perfectly, not least because of the excellent and variable wheel drive system and hydraulic steering. As if on rails, and without unpleasant outbursts can be very large, the driving pleasure of enjoying round after round. Only the standard seats do not have enough lateral support. If you want to purchase then not only to roll the Aventador Get should also order the sports bucket seats immediately.
Similar to a fighter jet
To even get into the 1.14 meters flat flounder, can open up, as with its predecessors, Murcielago, Diablo and Countach wing doors. The engine is then started by pressing a button. The hexagonal start button is not as vile exposed, but protected by a red door, similar to a fighter jet, the key to fire the weapon. The fabulously beefy sound that you hear it from the medium centered exhaust pipes of interest immediately feel like a couple of fast laps. Through the box with the number seven can be heard the powerful rumble of the 15 test cars. Each of the roaring beast has six half-liter, V-shaped distributed to twelve cylinders. That's enough for the record-breaking standard sprint from zero to 100 in tiny 2.9 seconds. After 8.9 seconds 200 mph are reached. And only 24.5 seconds after launch needs of high-end Lamborghini, showing up to 300 km / h on the speedometer. Only at 350 km takes the brutal thrust of the 1.6 tonne truck to an end. However, the possible maximum speed on the race track is not available, because for security reasons, the long start-finish straight, but by driving parallel to the pit lane at a speed of 60 in the first or second gear.
"Corsa" with a difference
By the way you turn this Formula 1 standard in the extra-and only by the Aventador developed seven-speed sequential manual gearbox steering wheel paddles. Three modes are available: "Strada" for the moderate walk in the park on the boulevards of the world, "sport" for the brisk pace on the road or on the highway. "Corsa" is the name of the evil-biting race mode. This process takes at pickled Corsa mode just short eyelashes shock 50 milliseconds. And remember the back of the driver and front passenger also quite clear, because the shift up under full load each time making for a powerful blow to the cross.
Even at two other locations can be found in Lambos noble masterpiece Formula 1 technology. And, although neither will run for decades, Lamborghini, VW still the parent company, Formula 1. The heart of the fast car is next to the V12 engine, the two-part, and only about 150 kilograms, the monocoque, high-strength carbon fiber. Its carbon structure is extremely rigid and acts as a particularly secure safety cage.
Also from the racing is top class, the pushrod suspension with damping, which was perfectly matched to the high-performance road car. Together with the double-wishbone suspension with aluminum and the carbon-ceramic brake system, the Aventador on the track is equally at home, and hopefully the speed limit and left-lane highway schleicher free.
