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.
For Lamborghini, style is how it displays its impressive power and the expression of invigorating dynamics. From the first look, the latest Aventador is definitely a Lamborghini, wearing the brand's distinct design - with its super strong dimensions, its precise lines and accurate surfaces, and with prominent masculine features in each and every element.
The architects at Centro Stile Lamborghini have particularly improved this style language to provide the Lamborghini Aventador an advantage. It is a world-class work of art, a crisply curved front end down to the super low roofline all the way to the distinct back diffuser. Each line has a clearcut purpose, each form is built for speed requirements, but the overall appearance is no less than awesome and truly jaw dropping.
The doors open like wings
Its impressive dimensions are the following: a total length of 4,78 meters (188.19 in.) that is matched with a stunning width of 2,26 meters (88.98 in.) with the exterior mirrors included, and lastly a nearly impossible low height of only 1.136 mm (44.72 in.). It is a well-known fact that the carbon-fiber monocoque doors open upward - a characteristic that was initially launched in the currently famed Countach and later on used for the next V12 variants like the Murciélago and the Diablo.
But the Aventador also surpasses the abilities of its older brother, the Murciélago – with its electronically facilitated air intakes that open based on the temperature outside and the required cold air, guaranteeing top notch aerodynamic efficiency. And for clients who desire to showcase the core of their Lamborghini, the optionally available transparent engine bonnet flaunts the 12-cylinder engine like an engineering sculpture in a display box.
