Those excited for the arrival of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 have been painstakingly awaiting each tiny detail that comes out but finally, the specs of this Italian hypercar have been released by autoblog.it. We have already learned that the vehicle will be powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine that delivers 700 hp of max output.

This whooping power is distributed to all four wheels using a new seven-speed automatic transmission that is equipped with Independent Shifting Rods, which enable it to deal with the gear shifting process in 50 milliseconds. The powerplant of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 would have to push 1,575 kg (3,472 lbs), so it can be deduced that it has a power-to-weight ratio of 2.25 kg per horsepower.

Accelerating from zero to 62 mph can be accomplished in just 2.9 seconds, and the newest creation from Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. boasts of a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). The hypercar has a weight distribution ratio of 43:57. In terms of dimensions, the new Aventador LP 700-4 measures 4.78 meters (188 inches) in length, 2.03 meters (80 inches) in width and 1.14 meters (45 inches) in height.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 rides 19-inch rims for the front and 20-inch rims for the rear, as shod with 255/35 and 335/30 tires, respectively. The Italian hypercar is also fitted with a 90-liter (23 gallons) fuel tank. When it comes to stopping power, the Aventador LP 700-4 is equipped with a carbon ceramic braking system that uses six-piston calipers for the front axle.

In line with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador derived its name after a fighting bull. In 1993, the fighting bull named Aventador earned the Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera for its courage in the arena in Zaragoza, Spain, The "LP" in the name stands for "Longitudinal Posteriore," which refers to the hypercar’s longitudinally mounted mid-engine. The "700" in LP 700-4, on the other hand, refers to the fact that that its V12 engine is tuned to deliver 700 PS (691 bhp). Internally codenamed LB834, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 was meant as a replacement for Murcielago as the brand’s new flagship model.

Lamborghini’s current flagship, the Murcielago, has been in production since 2001 and was the successor to the Lamborghini Diablo. Introduced as a coupe in 2001, the Murcielago is named for a famous fighting bull fought against Rafael Molina Sánchez, at the Coso de los califas bullring in Cordoba, Spain in 1879. Murcielago survived 24 sword strokes. The matador chose to spare its life to honor its passion and spirit.
