The upcoming Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is still a few months away from being revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, but the early returns from the company’s private viewings have indicated that Lamborghini may just have hit a home run.

One of the markets that’s already in-line for the successor to the Murcielago is Singapore, where a pre-production unit was flown in for a private preview for Lamborghini customers. According to Melvin Goh, chief of Lamborghini Singapore, the interest in the Aventador comes as a result of the brand’s growing appeal and improved image and visibility in the Asian market.

“In the last five years since the arrival of the Murcielago and Gallardo, people now understand the cars better and realize the products are good,” he said. “On that note, they are willing to book one even when it’s new and before it is here.”

While no exact figures have been released, it is widely believed that Lamborghini Singapore alone is poised to receive around 50 units of the new supercar, making it one of the very first countries to reserve the Aventador LP700-4 months in advance of its official release.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It look like a Reventon though, which is not a big thing at all. This is a stunning and best German engineering!

For comparison purposes, a base-line Gallardo will set you back about $850,000 SGD, and the 670-4 SV is about $1,100,000. So really, the Aventador will command a 35% price increase over the current Superveloce.

The new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is the long-awaited replacement for the flagship Murcielago model. Last month, a pre-production unit was brought in for a day for a private preview, according to Melvin Goh, the boss of Lamborghini Singapore.

Impressive? Perhaps, but the LP700-4 has some big shoes to fill. With 4099 cars built, the Murcielago was the most successful V-12 model in the company’s 47-year history.
