Lamborghini Aventador

Recommended Posts

Jalopnik has been slowly but surely releasing leaked pics of the new Lamborghini LP700, which by all accounts is named Aventador.

You can read the First Look here.

a few of the basics first:

--6.5L V12 engine producing 700hp at a mind-blowing 8250RPM and 506ft-lbs of torque at 5500RPM.

--Lamborghini ISR: an automated 6-spd manual gearbox, that is supposed to deliver crisp, clean shifts, yet allow for ease of use in normal driving conditions; it also supposedly provides an almost 50% shorter shift time than with a dual-clutch transmission –- with the benefits of lower weight and smaller size, according to Jalopnik.

--Carbon Fiber monocoque chassis that is 500lbs lighter than the Murcielago's, yet 70% stiffer.

--Inboard-mounted pushrod-actuated coilover suspension, similar to that of the Ferrari Enzo and Porsche carrera GT

--projected 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds and a 217mph top speed.

and now, the car porn:

It's like a Murcielago and a Reventon cross-pollinated...and the ensuing offspring took steroids.

Every color of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 rainbow

My favorite is the Nero Pegaso:

Total nut bust. :wub:

But here is Grigio Estoque, which is probably closest to the color you're imagining:

The officially official press pics + release

I know it's not much more help, but this is basically all there is on the internet right here.

All Lamborghinis are red, the rest are mistakes.

It is a sexy car.

Ferraris? Yes

Lambos? I disagree.

I've always wanted a Lambo. My lust started with the Countach, though I don't think I'd own one. I'd love a Diablo. While I liked the styling, I was never sld on the Murcielago or the Gallardo. This on the other hand...this I could get behind. I love it.

Would be interesting, at this price, so see engineering bent a bit toward eliminating some of the panel seams. The shot of the intake: yikes! Think how cool it'd be if the car came with a 'carved from one block' look, with this same styling.

I like it, much more interesting & aggressive than ferrari- which have become so 'soft' IMO.

Good God, man, they're expensive enough to repair. I mean that would look cool, but just imagine if somebody rearends you at ten miles an hour, you have to replace the whole body instead of just a fascia. and if you're just sealing in the panel seams, then you'd have to reputty the seam, and repaint the whole car (which you know they'll do, rather than just spot-paint). Either way, you could probably buy two Breras for the repair cost.
