The exact cause of why a Lamborghini Aventador went up in flames a few weeks ago in Dubai is still unknown. There are many speculations from different groups within the auto industry. One of the more popular possible causes is an overheating V12. Well, here’s one more video to add to the evidence file.
This video was filmed by a guy right behind the Aventador in heavy traffic. It is apparent that it wasn’t the heat from the Middle East sun that resulted to the flames. It’s a bit funny and quite disturbing that the person driving the Aventador had to be alerted by other drivers that his car was being cooked.
For those who don’t remember, when Automobili Lamborghini presented the Aventador LP700-4 to the world’s super sports car market, it made numerous boasts. It made waves because of its raw driving power boosted by engineering with an eye for weight-savings.
These are complemented by precision in how the car handles, thanks to the unparalleled design of the new Aventador. Drivers can expect to enjoy an experience that they have not had before when driving the Aventador.
This new car signifies Lamborghini’s commitment to moving forward and leading the future of super sports car design with an impressive technology package. The new Aventador’s engineering has focused on delivering a lightweight design by using carbon-fiber in the car’s construction.
If you’re a history buff, you should know that the name of the sports car is actually derived from a Spanish Corrida bull as revealed by Lamborghini’s tradition.
The bull was named Aventador, and was known because of its courage when it walked into the Saragossa Arena in October 1993. The bull was called the "Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera" as a result. Attaching the name to its flagship vehicle signifies Lamborghini’s commitment to designing vehicles that are both aggressive in performance and elegant in its exterior design.
This is very evident with the new Aventador, a specimen of precision, powerful proportions and pure muscle. The new design is the hard work of the designers in the Centro Stile Lamborghini, who have worked hard to conceptualize and translate into actual work a design language that is both functional and artistic.
Everything from the beautifully streamlined front portion, the squat roofline and the unique rear diffuser serves a purpose in satisfying the Aventador’s need for speed while still achieving spectacular aesthetics.
