Video: Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 gets assembled in a small room

Article by Christian A., on May 12, 2011

Lamborghini held an exhibit called La Forza Del Toro from April 26 to May 8 at the Chiostro del Bramante museum in Rome. The show, whose name is Italian for “the strength of the bull,” displayed photos and documents from the carmaker’s past, multiple historic engines, and the large Aventador LP700-4 supercar.

Many wondered how this supercar could possibly fit through the museum’s doors. It wasn’t simple. A video was released on just how Lamborghini’s technicians disassembled an Aventador and rebuilt it piece by piece inside the museum.

The work was highly meticulous. As soon as the parts were inside the museum, the technicians had an overwhelming task to bolt together the engine, chassis, and numerous body panels.

By many respects, it had the appearance of being the priciest, most complex, and most powerful model kit in the world. The exhibit was open to the public. Powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine, the new Aventador will arrive in dealerships in late summer 2011. It delivers 515 kW / 700 hp and 690 Newton meters (509 lb-ft) at 5,500 rpm.

The car weighs only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 lb) and it can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 2.9 seconds. It can reach a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). The engine is coupled to the ISR transmission. It is a unique feature among road-going vehicles since it can ensure a shifting time of only 50 milliseconds.

The car has an outstanding design that gets its inspiration from the Lamborghini Reventon. The Aventador LP 700-4 has an overall length of 4,78 meters (188.19 in.) and boasts a width of 2,26 meters (88.98 in.), including the exterior mirrors.

Form follows function. This has been the purist design philosophy of Lamborghini ever since. This is also the main reason why every Lamborghini is considered as a work of art that defines speed, dynamics and performance. Lamborghini is introducing the latest vehicle considered as a reinterpretation of this design philosophy – the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. Featuring a lightweight carbon-fiber body shell, precise razor-sharp lines and clean, taut surfaces, the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a beauty to behold.

Its roof surface comes with a new geometry that does not only allow more room for the vehicle’s occupants but also provides relief to the lines of the front section. This design also helps the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 achieve a better aerodynamic coefficient. Moreover, the same styling was also employed for engine cover. In developing the Lamborghini design language, the carmaker’s designers looked for inspiration from another arena bound by speed and dynamics – modern aeronautics. Such inspiration allowed designers to create precise and highly technical design language with extreme vitality as defined by optimal functionality.

This design language gave rise to powerfully defined lines and dynamic taut surfaces, which in turn results to a great deal of visual motion. Forerunners to this philosophy include the limited edition Reventón and the Sesto Elemento 'technology demonstrator.' Now, with the Aventador, this philosophy finally found its way into production. The new Aventador adheres to the mid-engine concept, its weight greatly focused around the vertical axis for optimized dynamics and reduced inertia.

The Lamborghini Countach cemented the carmaker’s status as a pioneer of mid-engine construction, allowing racing technology to be adapted for the road. With the new Lamborghini Aventador, the carmaker was able to come up with a design that further highlights the mid-engine layout, effectively conveying the power being sent to the car’s rear axle.
