To say Lamborghini’s Aventador has been popular with buyers is a bit of an understatement. The car has been a monumental success compared to its predecessors, with Lamborghini today confirming it has built the 2,000th example--only after two years of production.
By comparison, it took Lamborghini four and a half years to reach the same milestone for the previous Murcielago.
The Aventador, with chassis #2,000 is finished in Nero Nemesis black and was bought by Thaddeus Arroyo. The AT&T executive is already the owner of a Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder and fell in love with the Aventador after taking one for a test drive at a recent Lamborghini event in Palm Beach, Florida.
It is an original LP 700-4 model, which means its 6.5-liter V-12 engine delivers 691 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque, and is capable of sending the car from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and onto a top speed of 217 mph.
The Aventador range has since been expanded with an Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster
model as well as the slightly more powerful Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario
special edition. And soon, an even more potent model, possibly badged an SV
, will be joining the range, guaranteeing the car’s performance edge will be maintained for the foreseeable future.
All Lamborghini models are manufactured at the automaker’s plant in Sant'Agata Bolognese
, Italy. Five Aventadors are painstakingly built during an ordinary working day, with most of these ending up in the U.S._______________________________________Follow Motor Authority on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
