Hottest Lambo ever!

Lamborghini has unveiled a new supercar at the Geneva Auto Show and the car is dead sexy. The new Lambo is called the Aventador LP700-4 and it uses carbon fiber construction with aluminum front and rear frames. The car is powered by a V12 engine displacing 6498cc.

The V12 puts out 700hp at 8250rpm and 690nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The car also uses all wheel drive and has a 7-speed ISR transmission that is shifted with paddles behind the wheel. The car can rocket form 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 350km/h. Other than the performance, the car is just damn good looking too.

The aluminum and carbon fiber construction of the car means it is very lightweight at 3,472 pounds and the powerful engine gives the car a power to weight ratio of 4.96lb/hp. That 350km/h top speed works out to 217mph. the ISR transmission is a unique feature for rod vehicles and can shot in only 50ms.

“With the Aventador LP 700-4, the future of the super sports car is now part of the present. Its exceptional package of innovative technologies is unique, its performance simply overwhelming,” says 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 unrivalled in the worldwide super sports car arena.”

The name Aventador comes from a bull that entered a fight in the Saragossa Arena in October of 1993 and earned some sort of award for courage called “Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera.” Naturally, the doors open upwards as do all Lamborghinis aside from the Gallardo.
