The Lamborghini Aventador

The 2013 Lamborghini Aventador gains fuel economy technology...seriously

The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is one of the most powerful and highest performance supercars in the world but when the 2013 Aventador arrives later this year – the main changes made to the awesome Italian sports car will improve the fuel economy without hurting the performance aspects.

The 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 will pack the same 6.5L V12 engine that fires out 690 horsepower and 510lb-ft of torque to all four wheels via a lightning quick 7-speed semi automatic transmission. This allows the Aventador to scream from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds while reaching a top speed of 217 miles per hour and running the quarter mile in 10.6 seconds. Even with these incredible performance specifications, this carbon fiber supercar offers what I would call fairly impressive fuel economy measures of 11 miles per gallon around town, 17mpg on the highway and a combined figure of 13mpg. With a price nearing $400,000, the odds are good that most Aventador owners don’t worry too much about their fuel economy but with ever-increasing fuel economy standard being announced around the world – the Italian supercar builder is looking to improve on the fuel economy of the Aventador.

The 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 will come equipped with two new features that should help improve the fuel mileage of the 690 horsepower supercar.
