Sunderland’s striker Steven Fletcher buys Lamborghini Aventador image

Steven Fletcher, the Sunderland football player, has bought himself a brand new Lamborghini Aventador.

Football players are known for playing safe and not going with this new “trend” of choosing hybrid or electric vehicles and this is exactly what Steven Fletcher has done too, by adding a new Lamborghini Aventador to his garage. Sunderland’s striker has posted a picture on Twitter of his newest purchase, the grey Lamborghini Aventador, which is sitting next to his Bentley Continental GT. The image has sparked a controversy as he managed to score only 7 goals in two seasons, which made the club’s fans angry. After this, Fletcher has removed his tweet but happily BBC Sporf has retweeted it.

The Lamborghini Aventador is a flagship supercar put together in Sant’Agata Bolognese, since 2011. This has been launched at the Geneva Motor Show and it is coming as a replacement for the Murcielago. The model is offered in a two-door coupe / two-door roadster body styles and it has a mid-engine and all-wheel drive layout. This stands at 4,780 mm long, 2,030 mm wide and 1,136 mm tall. Power is being provided by a 6.5 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, connected to a 7-speed semi-automatic transmission, which is capable of producing a total output of 690 HP (510 kW) at 8,250 rpm and 689 Nm (508 lb-ft) of torque, available at 5,500 rpm. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is made in just 3 seconds and top speed stands at 350 km/h (217 mph).
