With the announcement of Lamborghini’s big Aventador V12 flagship in 2011, there were a few other things you could expect: a reeeeally long production run and a bunch of different versions, each more absurd than the last. The 2017 Lamborghini Avendator S is the latest one.

With the power matching that of the Aventador SV’s 740 output from the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, Lamborghini informs us that the new bull now has four-wheel steering and more enhanced suspension and electronics. Also, a higher redline at 8,500 RPM, up from 8,350, if you’re into that kind of thing.


A new driving mode has been added as well, called Ego (yes, Ego, Lambo is going Full Lambo these days) from which the driver can choose to customize the traction, steering and suspension. The car wears a set of new and specially developed Pirelli P Zero tires.

And then we get to the face of the thing. I understand that Lambos, especially big V12 ones, are supposed to retain a sense of theater and drama. Most of them pull this off spectacularly. But when I gaze upon the face of the Aventador S—updated with added aggression and improved aerodynamics—all I can see is a curly black mustache.


So, if you’re interested in a Lamborghini with a mustache, it’ll cost you $421,350. Customers will begin to take delivery in spring 2017. Mustache wax not included. You should definitely buy one right now.
