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.
