What engine comes in the Lamborghini Aventador?

The Aventador is powerful, but what engine comes in the Lamborghini Aventador? As you may or may not know, the V12 engine is Lamborghini’s bread and butter. For a multitude of reasons, both historical and technical, Lamborghini has continuously developed the V12 for decades, and it’s only fitting that the Aventador receives the V12 treatment.

The latest V12 is a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated powerplant that operates with two cylinder banks at a 60 degree angle. This is the fourth generation Lamborghini V12 and it’s the first all-new V12 since the 350GT. With three Aventador models, this V12 has three different performance profiles.Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster side and back view

The standard Aventador sets the pace for all other Aventador models to come. With all-wheel drive as the only drive-wheel configuration option, every Aventador is putting all twelve cylinders to work pushing all four wheels to their absolute limits.

As the replacement to the Murcielago, the Aventador has already outsold and outperformed its ancestor, and it shows no signs of slowing down. This model even offers both a coupe and a roadster body style.
