The EGO concept offers variable driving modes that give the driver more control, freedom and response; depending on conditions and capabilities.

The Italian automaker says the updated styling for the Aventador S is redesigned for a purpose, achieving maximum aerodynamic efficiency while accenting its complex, muscular dynamism.

On a practical level, a more aggressive nose and longer front splitter redirect airflow for better aerodynamic efficiency improved engine cooling and increased cooling to the radiators.
