Lamborghini delivers its 1,000th Aventador LP 700-4

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 21, 2012

After just 1 year and 3 months, Lamborghini has marked the milestone of having built 1,000 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 supercars. It took 2 years and 5 months for 1,000 units of the Murcielago (the predecessor of the Aventador) to be built. A Bavarian architect is the recipient of the 1,000th Aventador in Argos Orange, which he will add to the LP 700-4 to his other Lamborghini, a Diablo.

Lamborghini said that the Aventador production has been steady and that its output has increased to 4.5 vehicles a day at the Sant’ Agata Bolognese plant. Lamborghini said that it has 18 months worth of orders for this Aventador.

Automobili Lamborghini continues to be on top of the super sports car market by offering its flagship model, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. This flagship super sports car is dominating its rivals with its elegant design, dynamic power, the finest equipment, excellent lightweight structure, and outstanding handling precision -- all combined to offer an unmatched unparalleled driving experience.

First off, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 features an innovative monocoque structure made entirely of carbon fiber – thereby combining outstanding lightweight engineering with the undisputed levels of stiffness and safety.

It is powered by a new 6.5-liter V-12 engine that develops up to 515 kW (700 hp) of output and exceptional low-end torque – allowing it to sprint from nil to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has achieved a weight-to-power ratio of just 2.25 kilograms per hp (4.96 lb/hp), thanks to its total dry weight of only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 lb). In fact, the Aventador’s dry weight is already considered as very low for this class of vehicle.

Despite an eight-percent surge in power, the Aventador LP700-4 features 20-percent lower fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions compared with its predecessor. Power is transmitted from the V-12 engine to the wells by an ISR gearbox, which features an exceptionally fast shifting time of only 50 milliseconds and a highly emotional shift feel.

Thanks to a lightweight chassis with pushrod suspension, the Aventador promises supreme handling precision and remarkable performance. Its interior boasts of highly advanced features like the TFT cockpit display with Drive Select Mode system. Lamborghini will build the Aventador LP700-4 at its new production facility in Sant'Agata Bolognese in Italy and will commence delivery in late summer 2011.

A milestone for Automobili Lamborghini: 1,000 Aventadors produced

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 today achieved an important milestone in its history, with the 1,000th vehicle produced. The Argos Orange vehicle with chassis number 1,000 rolled off the assembly line, destined for Germany. Its new owner, Hans Scheidecker, received the keys today from Automobili Lamborghini President and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann. The Bavarian architect is a passionate Lamborghini customer, already owning a Lamborghini Diablo.

The Sant' Agata Bolognese plant's productivity has noticeably increased for the Aventador LP 700-4 compared to the previous flagship model: the Murciélago took two years and five months before the 1,000th example rolled off the assembly line. Launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2001, the Murciélago reached the 1,000-vehicle milestone in February 2004. The Aventador has taken just one year and three months, with production increasing from three vehicles a day in Q3 2011 to 4.5 today.

This production milestone is not the only accolade for the V12 super sports car from Sant' Agata Bolognese. Indeed, little more than a year from its official debut, the Aventador has been crowned queen of the super sports cars with no less than 36 international prizes for its design and innovative technological solutions. The success of the Aventador is also demonstrated by its order book, which continues to cover the next 18 months of production.
