0-10,000 in record-breaking time for a V12 Lambo.
There have been many iterations of the Lamborghini Aventador over the years, from the original model to the track-focused Aventador SVJ. Now, nine years after the original Aventador launched, Lamborghini's flagship supercar has achieved an impressive production milestone. Lamborghini has announced the 10,000th Aventador has rolled off the production line at the automaker's factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy.
Chassis number 10,000 was an SVJ Roadster finished in Grigio Acheso (grey) with a Rosso Mimir (red) livery and an interior designed by Lamborghini's Ad Personam department in Rosso Alala (red) and black. Despite its significance, the landmark Lamborghini Aventador won't be displayed in a museum. Instead, it will be delivered to its owner in Thailand.
The original Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 coupe debuted in 2011, featuring an innovative carbon fiber monocoque that combined the cockpit, floor, and roof of the car in a single structure to improve the structural rigidity and performance.
Lamborghini's flagship also debuted the automaker's new V12 that produced 700 hp at 8,250 rpm, enabling it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds. In 2012, a Roadster version of the Aventador launched, followed by the unveiling of the one-off Aventador J speedster at the Geneva Motor Show. To celebrate the Miura's 50th anniversary, Lamborghini then launched the Aventador Miura Homage based on the Aventador Coupe.
In 2016, the new Lamborghini Aventador S debuted with a new aerodynamic design, redesigned suspension, more power, and improved driving dynamics. Its 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated was uprated by 40 hp for a maximum output of 740 hp.
Taking the flagship supercar to a new extreme, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ was introduced in 2018, boasting more extreme active aerodynamics and an even more powerful V12 producing 759 hp and 537 lb-ft of torque. This setup enabled the track-focused supercar to become the fastest production car to lap the Nurburgring, completing the German circuit in just 6 minutes, 44.97 seconds.
Production of the SVJ was capped at 900 units. Lamborghini also launched the special-edition SVJ 63 limited to 63 referencing Lamborghini founding year in 1963, followed by the Aventador SVJ Roadster in 2019. Looking ahead, the next-generation Lamborghini Aventador is expected to sport a radical new design and an electrified plug-in hybrid powertrain. There were rumors Lamborghini will ditch its signature V12 in favor of a more efficient V8, but the automaker is fighting to keep its 12-cylinder powerplant alive.
