Lamborghini has unveiled a brand new addition to its Aventador line-up, the Aventador S, and its trio of brute power, sleek design and sophisticated technology make it perhaps the best one yet.

Under the hood is a 6.5-liter V12 engine, kicking out 730bhp — that's up on the "regular" (there really is nothing regular about it at all) Aventador, but ever so slightly down on the Aventador SV's 740bhp — thanks to better-optimized valve timing. That power will get you from 0-62mph in 2.9s and all the way up to a monumental 217mph. Elsewhere, the redline has been bumped up to 8,500rpm, and the exhaust is said to be 20 percent lighter, making all of its grunts and purrs that little bit more satisfying.

The biggest change, however, is the introduction of a four-wheel steering system. The front axle works just as all other Lambos, but at the rear axle are two separate "actuators" capable of adjusting to the driver's steering input in just five milliseconds. At low speeds, the front wheels face in the opposite direction to the rear wheels to artificially reduce the wheelbase, but at high speeds all wheels are aligned for better stability.

These high-tech changes, as well as an updated suspension and "real-time" damping system, is what Lamborghini means when it says the Aventador S represents new "technological and performance milestones in super sports car development.” Check it out above.

After you've had enough of oggling at the sheer beauty of another fresh Lambo, here's what it looks like when one gets destroyed.

In other news, here's a detailed look at the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe "Night Edition."
