A strange email came to our redaction today. Seeing the title we opened it quickly and we saw a car what it appeared to be the new Lamborghini LP 700-4 Aventador made us drool. Now… we don’t know who Ron is, but we must thank him for this photo as it appears to be the real thing.
Moreover, as you can see from the photo, the words “It's not always easy to keep a secret” make us believe that we might talk about the first real photo of the new Murcielago successor, the so-called Aventador LP 700-4.
Regarding the technical specs, we do know that the new car will feature firm’s all new 6.5-liter V12 engine capable to deliver an impressive 515 kW (700 hp) and maximum torque of 690 Newton meters.
This engine will be mated to the new transmission concept for super sports cars: the “Lamborghini ISR” automated manual gearbox, which combines minimal shift times and everyday usability with low weight and dimensions.
The new engine has a total weight of just 235 kilograms. Moreover, the new Aventador LP 700-4 will also feature an innovative and highly sophisticated suspension concept. The pushrod spring and damper concept was inspired by Formula 1 and tuned perfectly to meet the needs of a high-performance road-going vehicle. Thanks for the photo, Ron!
Lamborghini always made sure that its design displayed the grace of its amazing dynamics and the beauty of the aggressive power that it offers. It is because of this that one look at the new Aventador and it is clear that it is indeed a Lamborghini.
Proof of this is that it carries the brand’s unique design language and characteristic as seen through the precise surfaces and exact lines, powerful proportions, and even the tight muscularity of each of the details.
Centro Stile Lamborghini’s designers made sure to develop delicately this particular design language to give the Aventador a distinct new advantage. It is also a good work of art as exhibit by the dynamic sculpture from the polished front end to the low roofline and even up to the very unique rear diffuser.
Each of the lines has its own function and each form is shaped by the need for speed. However the overall look remains to be stunning and magnificent. The striking proportions of this carbonfiber vehicle show that it is 4.78 meters (188.19 inches) long and when exterior mirrors are included, it boasts a width measuring 2.26 meters (88.98 inches).
Highlighting this is the low height of around 1,136 millimeters (44.72 inches). As expected from a Lamborghini, the two doors open upward. This was shown on the now celebrated Countach and was then utilized for the succeeding V12 models like the Murciélago and the Diablo.
The Aventador itself reminds one of its direct predecessor which is the Murciélago, mainly due to the air intakes that are electronically controlled to open based on the outside temperature as well as the need to have cooling air. As a result, it brings aerodynamic efficiency to its maximum.
For customers who want to show off the heart of their very own Lamborghini, the brand is offering an engine bonnet that is transparent in order to showcase its twelve-cylinder engine, and look like an art piece in a museum. Its already spacious interior manages to blend lavish equipment and innovative technology with the use of exclusive premium materials and Italian craftsmanship.
The broad center tunnel has a red switch cover, which opens up to indicate the button used to start the twelve-cylinder engine. In addition, the cabin is equipped with the next-generation dashboard, like those seen in aeroplanes, where the instruments are shown through TFT-LCD screen utilizing display concepts. The second screen meanwhile is reserved for the navigation system and the standard multimedia system.
