Moreover, it is underpinned by a carbon-fiber monocoque, which makes its not only light, but also extremely stiff and safe. This element leads to an extremely low dry weight of just 1,575 kilograms (3,472 lbs). As a result, the new Aventador LP700-4 boasts a weight-to-power ratio of only 2.25 kilograms per hp (4.96 lb/hp).

While the new Aventador LP700-4 is around eight-percent more powerful than its predecessor, its fuel consumption and carbon emissions are lower by around 20 percent. Power is sent to the wheels through the ISR transmission that features a very quick shifting time of only 50 milliseconds as well as a highly emotional shift feel.

Other high-tech elements of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 include its lightweight chassis and the TFT cockpit display with Drive Select Mode system. Lamborghini plans to build the new Aventador LP700-4 at its new production facility in Sant'Agata Bolognese in Italy. The carmaker will commence delivery of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 to its first customers in late summer 2011.
