Lamborghini Aventador

The Lamborghini Aventador is a two-seater hyper sportscar and was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011. The Aventador will replace the Murciélago and uses a 6.5-litre, V12 engine which produces 700 HP at 8,250 rpm and 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. This output is just enough to sprint the car from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds while blasting off a top speed of 217 mph.

The wait is over ladies and gentlemen: Lamborghini’s next hypercar has made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and dare we say what a hypercar it is! The new Bull God will feature an earth shattering 700hp V12 and the highest power to weight ratio of any car in its class. Yes, this is the new, long waited Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.

Lamborghini is really good at creating sinister super sports cars, but it is equally as talented at naming them. According to the company, "Aventador" was the name of a bull that entered into battle on October 1993 at the Saragossa Arena, earning the "Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera" for its outstanding courage. Having the courage to go up against a new world of super sports cars will be the name of the game for the new Lamborghini flagship. Today’s world is extremely high-tech and many new players have entered the arena. Lamborghini has been promoting its carbon-fiber monocoque technology and the Aventador’s 2.9 second 0-62mph, but will that be enough?

According to Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. "The Aventador is a jump of two generations in terms of design and technology, it’s the result of an entirely new project, but at the same time it’s a direct and consistent continuation of Lamborghini’s brand values. It is extreme in its design and its performance, uncompromising in its standards and technology, and unmistakably Italian in its style and perfection. Overall, the dynamics and technical excellence of the Aventador LP 700-4 makes it unrivaled in the worldwide super sports car arena."

UPDATE 06/21/2012: Everyone has to admit that the Lamborghini Aventador is a cool supercar and despite its $387,000 price tag, the demand for it is pretty high. Currently, the waiting list is set at about 12 months, but Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini’s CEO, recently announced that the company is working on reducing the waiting period, especially now when the demand is almost double of what it was. Currently, Lamborghini is producing a total of 600 Aventador units a year, but they are working on investing in the plant so that they can increase production capacity. (Autovisie)
