The exterior design is characterized by the extreme, razor-sharp lines inspired by modern aeronautics.

The roof has a specific geometry that carries on the main design theme while providing more headroom for the passengers.

The doors are deeply recessed and open upwards – a tradition started with the Countach and carried on with the Diablo and the Murciélago.

The interior is also inspired by the arrow-theme and is dominated by a next-generation dashboard, with the instruments presented on a TFT-LCD screen using innovative display concepts.

The Aventador LP 700-4 is based on a new carbon fiber monocoque, a single component that integrates the passenger cell, with tub and roof and ensures extreme rigidity and a high level of passive safety.

The entire structure weighs only 147.5 kilograms (325.18 lb) and is coupled with front and rear aluminum frames, forming a chassis with a torsional stiffness of 35,000 Newton meters per degree and a weight of 229.5 kilograms (505.9 lb).

Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Monocoque and chassis The new Lamborghini supercar is powered by a new twelve-cylinder engine with 515 kW / 700 hp.

The unit is coupled with ISR (Independent Shifting Rods) transmission which features fast shifting times (only 50 milliseconds).

The chassis features pushrod spring and dampers – inspired by Formula 1 – with aluminum double wishbone suspension and carbon-fiber ceramic brake system.

The total dry weight of the car is limited to 1,575 kg.

The main performances are a 0-100 km/h sperint time of just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h.

The first deliveries of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 are expected in late summer 2011.

According to tradition, ‘Aventador’ was the name of a bull that entered into battle in October 1993 at the Saragossa Arena, earning the “Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera” for its outstanding courage.
