Lamborghini Aventador Receives over 50 Preorders from Singapore

One of the vehicles that have recently flooded headlines worldwide is Lamborghini’s Murcielago successor, the Aventador. However, while we were all excited to see how the car looks (ok, we have to admit the vehicle is still wearing camo) and to find out what it packs under that stunning body, others were busy... pre-ordering it!

According to asiaone.com, the story takes place in Singapore with the chain of events starting one month ago, when a pre-production model was displayed for a select audience during a one-day event. This was part of a larger Asian tour that showed the vehicle to potential customers.

The aforementioned source mentions that the Melvin Goh, the head of Lamborghini Singapore said that a number of customers have already pre-ordered the model, with unofficial reports showing that over 50 units of the car have already found owners.

The executive explained that the reason behind this high level of demand is the fact that the brand;s image, as well as its visibility have improved.

In the last five years since the arrival of the Murcielago and Gallardo, people now understand the cars better and realise the products are good, so they are willing to book one even when it's new and before it is here,” Goh was quoted as saying by the aforementioned source.

We’ll remind you that the Aventador is hyperpowered by an all-new 6.5 liter V12 unit that delivers 700 hp to all four wheels using a seven-speed automatic gearbox with Independent Shifting Rods. The 1,575 kg (3,472 lbs) beast only needs 2.9 seconds to reach 62 mph and offers a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

Before we end this story, we have to tell you the same source also reported that the Aventador comes with a price tag of SGD$1.5 million (USD1.14 million).
