Rendering: 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
The successor for the Lamborghini Murcielago has been called many things, but after trademarking a name in the U.S., it seems Lamborghini may have settled for the Aventador. Call it whatever you want, we’re calling it stunning, and this latest rendering of the supercar backs up that statement wholeheartedly.
Using a few spy shots scooped up earlier, this latest creative genius has put together a detailed and beautifully sculpted rendering of the future Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. You’ll notice that the photo has the monstrous Reventon-styled front end along with similar air intakes sitting just a bit higher than its brethren. What you won’t see in this image is the dramatic weight decrease provided by the carbon fiber monocoque chassis. This Jenny Craig adjustment leaves the Aventador about 500lbs lighter than its Murcielago predecessor.
The supercar even backs up its beauty with a phenomenal engine and astounding performance. It is powered by a 6.5L V12 engine producing 700hp and 479lb-ft of torque. The 0-60mph sprint is made in 2.9 seconds and top speed lands right on the 217mph mark. This engine is mated to a “Lamborghini ISR” – the ISR stands for Independent Shifting Rod - seven-speed single clutch automated manual gearbox.
Overall, the Lamborghini Aventador is like meeting the most beautiful girl of your dreams and then realizing that she has a great personality too. Hard to find, but present in the Aventador.
