Lamborghini Aventador runs all the way up to 230 mph

Lamborghini Aventador

You ever get the feeling that automakers are understating the performance capabilities of their cars? Some do, and some don’t. But it appears that Lamborghini has undershot the v-max on its latest mid-engine V12 supercar, the Aventador LP700-4.

Although Sant’Agata says the Aventador should be capable of topping out at 350 km/h (217 mph), the folks over at Sport Auto, as you can see from the video after the jump, took one all the way up to 370 km/h – that’s 230 mph.

As super a car as the Aventador is, those are the kinds of speeds typically recorded by another class of supercar altogether: cars like the McLaren F1 (231 mph), Koenigsegg CCR (241 mph) or Bugatti Veyron (254 mph)… but without the million-dollar price tag that typically goes along with those kinds of bragging rights.
