Before we let you enjoy the footage of the cars, let us remind you what the supercar is all about. Power for this beast comes in the form of 700 rampaging Italian horses, from the 6.5-liter V12, which is linked to a dually synchronized ISR 7-speed independent shift rod transmission from Graziano.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 has a kerb weight of 1,575 Kg (3,472 lbs), mainly due to extensive use of carbon fiber, material which has also been applied to the monocoque structure. This new super sports car is also equipped with a Haldex all-weel-drive system, and accelerating from nought to 62 mph (0 to 100 Km/h) takes only 2.9 seconds.
“Interest in the Aventador has been unprecedented and we have orders for far more than one year. Before customer deliveries begin in the second half of 2011, customers and brand enthusiasts can visit the Aventador microsite to receive a glimpse into the wealth of personalization opportunities available with the new V12 super sports car,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
“Although we prefer to leave the complete customization process to a one-on-one experience with a Lamborghini retailer, the microsite is the perfect interactive tool for enthusiasts who want to test different options and styles for a truly personalized Lamborghini,” he added.
