It appears that the economic crisis is already history and as a proof Lamborghini announced that its upcoming car, the so-called Aventador LP700-4 already receive over 50 orders from Singapore. The new car will be officially introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and promises to be the ultimate supercar.

As expected, it will be powered by a new 6.5-litre V12 engine (read all about the new engine here) capable to deliver 700 hp and an impressive 650 Nm of torque. With these numbers, the car can sprint from o to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds and will have a top speed of 350 km/h or 217 mph.

The new engine will also use a new ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) transmission. According to Lamborghini, the new seven-speed single-clutch automated manual gearbox is considered the fastest on the market as it changes gears in only 50 milliseconds.

For example, a Formula 1 car changes gears in 30-35 milliseconds. Furthermore, the new car will be priced at around $1.5 million.

'The LP700 can go from zero to 100 kmh in 2.9 seconds,' said Melvin Goh, the boss of Lamborghini Singapore. 'How many cars can do that in under three seconds? You're talking maybe about the Bugatti Veyron but that will cost at least $4.5 million.'
