25 Most Iconic Sports Cars Ever

Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini Aventador

Just speaking the name Lamborghini conjures up images of sleek class, quality, speed, and a high-end lifestyle. Ever since the first Lamborghinis rolled onto the streets of Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, in May of 1963, they have been coveted for their unique style, power, and status symbol. The Lamborghini Aventador for 2019 meets and exceeds the expectations of all Lamborghini enthusiasts. And the price tag that tops $400 grand is not for the faint of heart.

Four models of the Aventador are available for the discriminating driver this year: the S, the S Roadster, the SVJ, and the top-of-the-line SVJ Roadster. While all four have most of their components and features in common, distinctive design differences set each in a class all of its own. Starting with the S model, the V12 engine that blasts out 740 horsepower will take you from zero to 62 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds. But it doesn’t stop there. If you have the nerve, you can push the limits of a stated 217 miles per hour. Of the four models, only the S Roadster drops the 0–62 mph by a tenth of a second to achieving that speed in 3 seconds. All this power does guzzle the gas, however. So, expect to average only 11 miles per gallon. But if you can drive a Lamborghini Aventador, who cares?

Each of the skillfully crafted Aventador models is equipped with the Lamborghini Active Vehicle Dynamics, or LDVA, control unit, which is a technological system that controls the dynamic axles. The Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering (LRS), and the Lamborghini Magento-rheological Suspension (LMS) all cooperate to give the driver a precise ride that is both exhilarating and safe.

What sets the SVJ Roadster apart from the other models is that only 800 units of this year’s model will ever be made. Because it is a limited edition, it can be completely personalized to your specifications, from exterior color to interior upholstery, leather, and stitching. Your personalized car could easily be one of a kind.

The SVJ 63 is also a limited edition of just 63 units, made to honor Lamborghini’s founding years of 1963. The carbon fiber chassis, a reconfigured front end, bigger side skirts, and unique color combine to make the SVJ a classic.

The S Roadster’s claim to individuality is its removable roof. The hood is crafted from carbon fiber, as is the spoiler and the rear air inlets. Other panels are created from synthetics and aluminum. Get behind the wheel of an Aventador and feel the thrill of power from this sports car.
