10,000th Aventador Sees Red, Leaves Lamborghini Factory

A celebration at Sant'Agat as 10,000th Aventador is finished

  • Aventador went on-sale in 2011

  • V12 has grown from 700 to 770 hp


Ten thousand. That’s how many Lamborghini Aventador models have raged out of the factory in Sant’Agata since the V12 flagship went on sale nine years ago. That’s 120,000 cylinders and more power than we can calculate since models range from 700 hp to 770 hp with several stops in the middle.

The ever more extreme Aventador still looks fresh in the carbon and aluminum, but that figure makes it almost positively common. At least by Lamborghini standards. No wonder there are so many about on YouTube and Instagram. For reference, just under 2,000 Countach models were made in 18 years and fewer than 3,000 Diablos in eleven. On the other hand, it’s about eight hours of Ford F-Series sales, so there isn’t exactly one on every street corner.

Car 10,000 is an Aventador SVJ Roadster, the 770 hp most extreme example (so far) of the car, limited to just 800 total. This car, finished in Grigio Acheso with Rosso Mimir stripes and a Rosso Alala and black (really, no fancy Italian name for that last one?) interior by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customisation shop.

The car is bound for Thailand, where we assume it will never get to spend any part of its life on a racetrack.

First in the Aventador line was the LP 700-4 Coupe, for 700 hp and all-wheel rive. It had a carbon monocoque chassis that made the car safer and more rigid and used a motorsports-like pushrod suspension. Since then there have been a series of quicker, lighter, and more extreme models, anding with this SVJ, the current Nürburgring production vehicle record holder.
