Lamborghini Aventador launched in India at Rs 3.69 cr (ex Delhi)
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
If the Prancing horse has unveiled the FF in India, arch rival Lamborghini cannot sit back and chill. So Lamborghini has unveiled tier latest flagship V12 supercar Aventador in India for a whopping price of Rs 3.69 core (ex delhi).

It is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission with ISR (Independent Shifting Rods) that can change gears in 50 milliseconds. And the -4 means that power is sent to all 4 wheels. Now that’s a recipe for a Sunday morning drive Lamborghini style!
