With the new 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S Coupé the Sant'Agata company brings back a blast from the past ... the S version of the V12 built at the same factory that has been putting together masterpieces for road use since 1963, a V12 model with the stylish S at the rear first left the gates back in 1969 on the legendary Miura S.
It would take 9 years after that for the S to make a comeback on the 1978 Lamborghini Countach S, in 1982 the Countach S had an engine increase to 5-liter in the LP500 S version ... after that the S designation went out of sight ... until late 2016 when the updated Aventador dropped the LP name to resurrect the S again.
The styling of the new 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S Coupé was inspired by the classic from the Eighties, the Countach, just take a look at the rear wheel arch that received a design based on the Countach wheel arch, also the side air intake has lost her 'blade' from the original Aventador LP700-4 model to create a cleaner design.
Those fixed air intakes first seen on the Aventador Superveloce have returned to the Aventador S too, and they also remind us of those box styled intakes we've seen on the Countach ... the new Aventador sure pays homage to the Lamborghini heritage in style.
At the moment there is no news about an Aventador S Roadster, but I'm sure this is only a matter of time, the open-top version of this brand new, 740hp flagship from Sant'Agata will be unveiled soon.
