Lamborghini Takes 2012 Aventador from Vision to Reality [Video]
Lamborghini has just released a new video for the Aventador in which it tries to show how the car came to be one of the sought-after cars in the world. It all starts with a piece of paper and a few lines that quickly grow into the proportions now familiar to supercar fans across the world. The project then moves to the 3D model stage and a full-sized prototype version of the car.
We then get a few shots of the Aventador being put together at the Sant'Agata Bolognese factory. From the advanced carbon-fiber tub, to the new V12 engine and the all-Italian interior, everything is checked with pain-staking attention to detail.
Lamborghini is going to great lengths to reveal the technical details of its successor to the Murcielago supercar, the Aventador LP700-4. The car features a new block and an Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) automated manual gearbox, plus F1-inspired pushrod suspension. The new 6.5-liter V12 produces 700 horsepower at 8,250 rpm, while maximum torque of 508 pound-feet is available at 5,500 rpm.
The central structure of the car is made entirely from carbon fiber and has been designed as a monocoque. Lamborghini boasts that all its carbon fiber components are developed completely in-house. Too bad they charge you an arm and a leg!
