A new diffuser and an active wing with three positions, complete the picture. However, the corrections are not only cosmetic in nature. The splitter on the front axle is able to improve the output for example, by 130 percent.

All-wheel steering in the Lambo

Technically, Lamborghini developed the Aventador. For the first time are can be active shock absorbers are fitted in a series Lambo, adjusted the levels in four different. Highlight the new all-wheel steering should be regarded as, how we know, for example, also from the Porsche GT3: at slow speeds draw the axes slightly contradictory, to reduce the turning circle, while draw at high speeds, to increase the stability the axes in the same direction. A new ESC range plays an important role in the tuning of the car together with the newly introduced "ego" driving mode. In the "ego" mode all parameters such as suspension, steering or drive can be combined: free.

A new exhaust system not only ensures the Lambo typical sound of the V12, it saves around 20 percent in weight compared to the system in the pre-facelift model. Newly-developed Pirelli P zero tyres to finally transfer the concentrated power on the road.
