Four-wheel steering comes standard on the Aventador S Coupe and the soon to be released Aventador S Roadster. Both of which represent the not only the latest iteration of the Aventador, but the future of the Lamborghini brand as a whole.

By allowing the rear wheels to turn, the Aventador S can deliver an unparalleled level of control whether you are making fast corners or simply small corrections at speed. The rear wheels do not operate like the front wheels though. They have their own logic that adapts to your driving situation.
