Succeeding the Murcielago
With the Aventador, Lamborghini is taking a big step into the future - and building on the glorious history of the brand with the next automotive legend. The Aventador is based on an monocoque made from carbon-fiber that combines lightweight engineering with the highest levels of stiffness and safety. The new twelve-cylinder has 6.5 liters of displacement, producing 700 hp of pleasure with astonishing low-end torque. With a dry weight of 1,575 kilograms, the weight-to-power ratio stands at only 2.25 kilograms per hp (4.96 lb/hp). Acceleration is clocked at just 2.9 seconds (0-100 km/h) and the top speed of 350 km/h is quoted.
The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 in late summer 2011.
