Lamborghini produces 2000th AventadorThu, 06 Jun 2013
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 (LP standing for Longitudinal Position, 700 for hp, and 4 for four-wheel drive) has quite the bloodline of predecessors, featuring a famed list of Italian exotics that most people would have on their dream-car list. Owing its heritage to the likes of the Miura, Countach, Diablo and Murcielago, the Aventador continues to be Lamborghini's halo car and everyone's favorite poster.
As production of the coupe, roadster and other various editions continue at Lamborghini's Sant'Agata Bolognese plant, the automaker celebrated a milestone with 2,000 units being made as of Thursday.
Introduced in 2011, the Aventador's feat was accomplished in just over two years with a production rate of five cars a day.
An AT&T executive is the recipient of the 2,000th model, who decided to buy it after a satisfying test drive at Florida Lamborghini event. We can confidently say that he, a long time and passionate Lamborghini owner, won't be disappointed.
As Lamborghini celebrates this milestone, the waiting list for purchasing a new Aventador continues to be more than a year, making the supercar even more exclusive than it already is. As both journalists and enthusiasts, we're definitely not opposed to many, many more Aventadors in the years to come.
