Lamborghini is updating its flagship, the Aventador a refresh with the debut of the Aventador S. Lamborghini calls the Aventador S a new generation, but its actually more of a facelift with some styling updates and a more powerful V12.

The Aventador S is more aerodynamic thanks to a redesigned front bumper and an updated rear fascia. At the front a more aggressive nose and longer front splitter redirect airflow for better aerodynamic efficiency and two air ducts in the side of the front bumper reduce aerodynamic interference from the front tires and optimize wake flow to the rear radiator. The rear gets a new black diffuser that is available in carbon fiber.

When the wing is in its optimum position the overall efficiency at high downforce is improved by over 50%, and in low drag by more than 400% compared to the previous model.
