Preview: Lamborghini Aventador Polizia

Article by Christian A., on May 31, 2011

Now we don’t need to imagine how the Italian police force would look if it had a fleet of Lamborghini Aventadors protecting the roads. The work had already been done by Milanno Artworks and CarreraDesign, which created several renderings of the Aventador Polizia.

In 2008, the Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. donated a police version of its super sports car, dubbed the Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia. That is where designers got the idea of undertaking such a project.

Their renderings show that the Aventador Polizia has a blue and white paint scheme and lettering similar to what the Gallardo Polizia has. It’s designed to have a defibrillator and a refrigerated container that’s used for quick organ transport.

All the LED lights on the car are placed in the air intakes and on the dashboard. Clearly, the designers thought that the Aventador's aerodynamic lines would be ruined if it had a big light-pod on the roof.

Actually, the police beacon on the roof of the Gallardo has been aerodynamically optimized. To make sure that the visual signal won’t be missed, blue LEDs are fitted round the base of this very flat signal lighting. Blue LED signals are located on the front, sides and rear of the light’s aluminum shell in support of the roof-mounted lighting.

The audible warning signals come from four sirens placed on the front and rear of the Gallardo. The Aventador is powered by a 6.5l V12 engine that can deliver 700hp and 690 Nm of torque. It is mated to a Graziano ISR 7-speed automatic transmission.

Going from a standstill to 60mph is achieved in 2.9 seconds and it has a maximum speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). In comparison, the Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia features a 560hp engine that could go as fast as 203 mph (327 km/h).

Tradition dictates that the new flagship model from Lamborghini should carry the name of a bull. Specifically, the bravest specimen is the Spanish Corrida. With this in mind, the company chose the name Aventador. This was the bull that fought it out at Saragossa Arena in October 1993. Due to the exceptional bravery the bull displayed, it was awarded the "Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera". Its dimensions are indeed remarkable with total length of 188.19 inches (4.78 meters) with width, including the exterior mirrors, of 88.98 inches (2.26 meters).

Highlighting the striking proportions is the low height of merely 44.72 inches (1.136 meters). As expected from Lamborghini, the door is composed of carbon-fiber monocoque and opens upward. This feature was first seen in the now famous Countach. It was used as well for the succeeding models like the Murciélago and Diablo. Of these, it is the Murciélago that the Aventador takes inspiration from.

Its air intakes are electronically controlled and will only open if there is a need to have cooling air or to determine what the current temperature outside is. Doing this ensures that the Aventador delivers maximum aerodynamic efficiency. For those who want to show off what powers their Lamborghini, offered as an option is a see-through engine bonnet which acts as a display case and shows the 12-cylinder engine for everyone to see.

Design-wise, the Lamborghini is always about displaying that aggressive power and the stylishness of its spectacular dynamics. One look and there is no doubt that the Aventador is truly a part of the Lamborghini brand due to it having the unique design language of the brand and even its characteristics. It’s a true Lamborghini with its formidable proportions, the precision of its surfaces, meticulous lines, and the tight sturdiness in each and every detail.

This actual design language was created by designers working at Centro Stile Lamborghini with the goal of giving the Aventador a sizeable advantage. Starting from the polished front end and going through the low roofline and ending with the unique diffuser in the rear, the Aventador is truly a masterpiece especially with the dynamic sculpture. Each of the line has its own function and while the shape is influenced by the preference for speed, the overall appearance is truly magnificent and amazing.
