The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has finally been unveiled on the eve of the 2011 Geneva motor show at the VW’s Group pre show party. It features an all new 6.5 litre engine, a carbonfibre chassis and stunning looks.
Aventador is the name of bull that earned the Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera for its courage in Spain’s Saragossa Arena in 1993, but you want to know about is the LP700-4 designation 700 is the engine’s output in PS, and the 4 means four wheel drive. Mid mounted in the Aventador is an all new, direct-injection 6.5 litre V12 that produces 691bhp at 8250rpm and 509lb ft at 5500rpm. And it drives all four wheels via a seven-speed automated manual gearbox.
The LP700-4 has a flat underbody too, and a three stage pop up rear spoiler it lies flat, or angles at 4 deg for high speed stability, or at 11 deg for greater downforce at mid range speeds. All the air intakes are lined with glossy back frames, and there are Y shaped LED running lights around the bi xenon lights in the headlamps, and Y shaped LED taillights. It’s 4780mm long, 2030mm wide and 1136mm tall, making it longer, narrower and 1mm taller than the Murcielago. It’s also just 2mm longer than a Mondeo, so it’s not that unwieldy.
