Lamborghini has officially revealed their newest flagship super car, the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. This stunning new Lambo is a genuine super car, capable of reaching speeds of 217 mph on the top end, breaking to 60mph in a blinding 2.8 seconds. To put that in perspective, the Aventador hit 60 mph before you finished reading this sentence.
The design of the Aventador should feel familiar to Lamborghini fans, with trademark angles that ripple along its body in geometric symmetry. Everything from the wheels to the intakes to the back end are all given a visual upgrade over the Murcièlago this beauty replaces. Like those other recent Lambo’s, the rear window is perched above the Aventador’s nasty bits, providing a clear view of the fine Italian engineering within.
The engine of the Lamborghini Aventador is also a step up from the Murcièlago. The Aventador is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine that boosts horsepower up to 691, but it both lighter and more fuel efficient than the engine it replaces. That new engine plus an added focus on carbon fiber body construction gives the Aventador its blinding speed.
Want one of your own? 700-800 Lamborghini Aventadors will be produced each year, sold for an estimated $370k a piece. The sales release can’t come soon enough, we’re pumped to see the newest Lamborghini out prowling the streets.
