Lamborghini Unveils The New Aventador LP700-4 At Geneva

Lamborghini reveals the Aventador LP700-4, which will be able to hit 217 miles per hour, before the start of the Geneva Motor Show.

The time the automotive world has been waiting for is now here, as Lamborghini has revealed the Aventador LP700-4 before its Geneva Motor Show debut tomorrow.

From the onset, the Aventador LP700-4 is a gorgeous machine that is sure to turn heads on any street corner in the world and maybe even on Mars. It features the classic Lamborghini lines that were used on the old Murcielago, but with some added flair.

The new Lamborghini Aventador tips the scales at just 3,472 pounds, thanks to the company’s extensive use of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer monocoque structure that only weights around 324.5 pounds. With that low weight, the power output from the massive engine should be incredible.

"With the Aventador LP 700-4, the future of the super sports car is now part of the present. Its exceptional package of innovative technologies is unique, its performance simply overwhelming," says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

That power comes from a 6.5-lter V12 with 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque. If you’re wondering where the number 700 in the name comes from, the V12 produces 700 PS, which is just another unit of power measurement that is used in various markets.

That Lamborghini V12 is connected to a seven-speed independent shift rod transmission that was supplied from the Graziano Trasmissioni Group and can shift gears in 50 milliseconds. All that power will be sent to all four-wheels thanks to the company’s Haldex all-wheel drive system.
