EGO is not a dirty word for Lam­borgh­ini.

The Ital­ian maker has re­leased an up­dated ver­sion of its flag­ship Aven­ta­dor and has in­cluded a new “ego” mode that al­lows the driver to cus­tomise sev­eral as­pects of the car’s be­hav­iour, from the en­gine and gear­box to the steer­ing, sus­pen­sion and all-wheel drive.

The up­graded Aven­ta­dor S also gets more power, with the V12’s out­put ris­ing 30kW to 552kW. To har­ness the ex­tra grunt Lam­borgh­ini has re­designed the front and rear ends to im­prove air­flow and down­force.

The 0-100km/h time is 2.9 secs and the car will be priced at $788,914 plus on-road costs when it ar­rives in Aus­tralia, tipped to be in the sec­ond half of next year.
