Automobili Lamborghini’s entire product range is displayed at the newly opened dealership in France -- Lamborghini Paris Ouest (West). The highlights of the collection include the Gallardo and the Aventador LP 700-4. The opening of the showroom in 15 Boulevard Gouvion, Saint Cyr was facilitated by Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. Lamborghini’s partner Neubauer Group is managing this showroom.
The Aventador LP 700-4 had received 29 international awards for its one-of-a-kind design and ground-breaking technology, making it the new reference point in the super sports car industry.
The Aventador is very successful both from the public’s view and in terms of sales. It has already sold all the cars built in its first 18 months of its production. Then there’s the Gallardo. Its product line-up is the most successful in Lamborghini’s history.
The latest versions of the Gallardo that were introduced in 2011 include the Super Trofeo Stradale, which got its inspiration from the Super Trofeo which races in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo championship as well as the Gallardo Spyder LP 550-2 with rear-wheel drive.
Since 2003, almost 12,000 Gallardos have been sold. Last year ended with 1,602 Lamborghini cars sold (higher by 23%). The U.S. market keeps its position as the largest market. China is No. 2.
At the opening press conference, Stephan Winkelmann said that the opening of Lamborghini Paris Ouest stands for an additional stage in plans to reinforce the Lamborghini sales network in France and elsewhere in the world. He added that its partner Neubauer is committed to “representing the excellence and prestige of the Lamborghini brand in the city of Paris.”
Lamborghini Aventador is a work of art. There is no mistaking a Lamborghini. Their intentions as always have been to create a beauty whose power is inescapable. They want to drive your breath away and the new Aventador does this with ease.
Gliding into the limelight the Aventador exhibits all the classic Lamborghini design cues you would expect and due to the vehicle's power needs it has a deep stance.
Where the teams at the Centro Stile have excelled is in the exquisite beauty of the Aventador itself. It's dynamic, it is sleek, and it has a roofline which is incredibly low to the ground. The front cuts through the air like a knife and a glance along the profile will reveal that every edge has been minimised, and every design choice has been chosen to fulfil the vehicle's purpose, speed.
The doors open upward - of course
The Aventador is a frisky 4780 mm, or 188.19”, in length and has a width of just 2260mm, 88.98”, this includes the side mirrors and the height with that incredibly roofline measures in at a mere 1136 mm or 44.72”.
Much like the legendary Lamborghini Countach, Diablo and Murciélago, the doors for the Aventador open upwards. The Aventador has not been idle in terms of paying respect to that which has come before it, as the vehicle has once again taken inspiration from the Murciélago and installed electronic air intakes which fluctuate according to the temperature outside and ensure cool air is being brought in when necessary.
One of the final options for the body is the opportunity to have a transparent engine bonnet installed, allowing the owner to show off the twelve-cylinder beast which powers the Aventador.
Exclusive and high-tech interior
The fine Italian craftsmanship is on show inside the spacious interior. Made with the best materials, the Aventador combines state-of-the-art technological equipment with a premium finish.
The start button for the twelve-cylinder engine is covered by a red switch on the center tunnel as if it was a warning or something more akin to an aircraft. And the similarities do not stop there, as the instrument panel which dominates the interior is modelled on an airplane and displayed using TFT-LCD screens with one dedicated to the communication and navigation systems.
