The new Lamborghini Aventador 2012 unveiled

Meet the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, the first all-new Lambo production car in eight years. Lamborghini‘s new flagship boasts some impressive figures and goes head-to-head with the Ferrari for the title of Geneva car of the show..

And while the Aventador’s styling is a clean evolution rather than a striking revolution, the rest of the car is box-fresh. The engine, gearbox and carbonfibre chassis are all brand new. Grabbing all the headlines will be the new, mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12, which boasts 690bhp and 509lb ft. That makes the Aventador the most powerful Lamborghini yet, and with a claimed 0-62mph sprint of 2.9sec and a 217mph top speed, it is also the fastest. Peak power is delivered at a heady (and no doubt pretty sonorous) 8250rpm.



The gearbox sits in front of the engine, and is a unique, freshly designed single-clutch automated manual. It has seven speeds and is designed to possess the speed and polish of a typical twin-clutch affair. Gearshifts take just 50 milliseconds. As with the bulk of Lamborghini’s recent supercars, the Aventador is all-wheel drive, though with a more rearward bias than before.
