Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Revealed Ahead of Geneva Debut
The fine folks at WorldCarFans have stumble upon what looks like the first ever photos taken of the beast, shot by the Croatian Evo Magazine. As we expected, its design borrows heavily from the Sesto Elemento Concept.
The technical details regarding its performance have been available for some time, but in case you need a reminder, we can tell you that the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 uses a 6.5-liter V12 that churns out a hipercar-rivaling 700 hp (515 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque.
All that power is sent to the Haldex all-wheel drive system via a Graziano ISR 7-speed automatic transmission, which the Italian manufacturer says is significantly lighter than other gearboxes of its type. The standard sprint is dealt with in a blisteringly fast 2.9 seconds while top speed is rated at 217 mph (350 Km/h).
Take down the Ferrari posters from your walls kids, because there’s a new dream supecar in town!
