Arguably, no other supercar is as iconic as the Aventador. Through the years, it has introduced several technological innovations that put the performance sports cars on the map.

Today, we look at 10 innovations that in 10 years have enabled the Lamborghini Aventador to reach the “Olympus of Supercars.”

1. Carbon fiber

Lamborghini was the first automaker to use carbon fiber to produce important components in large numbers. The Aventador used carbon fiber in its monocoque allowing it to enjoy a futuristic aesthetic while maintaining extreme lightness.

2. Four-wheel-drive

While four-wheel-drive systems are more common on all-terrain vehicles, the Lamborghini Aventador also used this automotive innovation. The Aventador’s transmission is capable of adapting the torque distribution to the dynamic conditions of the car.

3. Suspension

Lamborghini used the innovative push-rod suspension system and incorporated it with Magneto-Rheological Suspension (MRS) for the Aventador Superveloce. The technology allows individual wheel damping at each turn, greatly reducing body roll and making the car’s steering and handling significantly responsive.

4. Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) robotized gearbox

One of the Aventador's revolutionary innovations is the seven-speed ISR robotized gearbox. This system has made it possible for Lamborghini to achieve a gearshift time of just 50 milliseconds.

5. Drive Select Modes and EGO Mode

Through the years, the Aventador has featured several innovative drive modes. From the LP 700-4’s five shift styles to the Superveloce’s Drive Select system with three modes — Strada, Sport, and Corsa — and then to the addition of the EGO mode on the S model.

6. Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva (LDVA)

Longitudinal control in the Lamborghini Aventador is provided by the LDVA control unit. The carmaker says that it acts like the electronic brain that receives precise real-time information on the mobility of the vehicle through inputs transmitted by all the sensors in the car.

That said, the LDVA allows the automatic selection of the best setup for all active systems based on the driving situation.

7. Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva 2.0 (ALA 2.0) and LDVA 2.0

It was the Aventador’s SVJ version that introduced the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva 2.0 and an improved second-generation LDVA. This innovation ensures the best aerodynamic configuration of the car in all driving conditions.

8. All-wheel steering

The all-wheel steering system debuted during the launch of the Aventador S. The steering technology features the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) on the front axle and Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering (LRS) on the rear axle. This system provides greater agility at low and medium speeds and more stability at high speeds.

9. Stop and start system

One of the more recent innovations by the Italian automaker, the innovative and ultra-fast stop-start system allows a significant reduction in fuel consumption by using a supercapacitor for storing electrical energy for starting the Aventador.

10. Cylinder Deactivation System (CDS)

Lamborghini developed a second efficiency-boosting technology called the Cylinder Deactivation System (CDS). This innovation reduces the Aventador’s combined fuel consumption by seven percent by shutting down one of the two cylinder banks at speeds below 135kph.
