Watch the Lamborghini Aventador V12 Engine Being Installed

Sure, the Lamborghini Aventador is a huge leap over its predecessor. Built around a carbon fiber monocoque, fitted with F1-style suspension and an advanced, lightweight gearbox, it will outperform most other cars on the road. But any Sant’Agata Bolognese creation is also a work of automotive art, made special by the craftsmen that put it together.
In addition, the Aventador is fitted with a brand new V12 engine, capable of delivering 700 horsepower and a 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint time of 2.9 seconds. The first all new engine since the Miura also brings with it an impressive top speed of 217 mph.

As you’d expect, putting such a 6.5-lite engined built for this sort of performance is a work of art, a fact clearly demonstrated by the video taken in the actual factory by OptionAuto. The engine is absolutely huge and leaves little room for anything else, but tuners will surely want to fit a couple of turbos in there for the sake of lunacy.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
