When Lamborghini officially unveiled the LP700-4 Aventador, they were quick to point out that their new supercar could hit a top speed of 217 mph. Turns out, they weren’t being facetious. German magazine, Sport Auto, tested the Lambo’s capabilities during a hot lap at Hockenheim where the Aventador crushed its own top speed with a spectacular peak of 230 mph (370 km/h)!

The last few seconds of the video are obviously the most important because that’s when the top speed is achieved, but before that we are given closeups of a few different parts of the vehicle, including that killer 6.5 L V12 engine, and a 0-270 km/h acceleration test.

Reminder: The Aventador is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine with an AWD layout that produces 700 HP 8,250 rpm and 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. It sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, while the ultimate top speed is still up in the air.

Lamborghini is the best and nothing but the best. I love the curvature style of their concept. It’s very aggressive to look at. I want to have this one someday.

Lamborghini never fails to bring the latest and functional cars in the world. This video clip shows how much the power Lamborghini has and how fast it was on the track.

Truly amazing for Lamborghini. It’s getting to be a high-tech one. The doors are cool. The engine specs and speed performance are excellent.
