It goes without saying that both doors of the Lamborghini Aventador's carbon-fiber monocoque open upward.
It goes without saying that both doors of the Lamborghini Aventador's carbon-fiber monocoque open upward.

The Aventador LP 700-4 combines brutal power, outstanding lightweight engineering and phenomenal handling precision with peerless design and the very finest equipment. With the Aventador, Lamborghini is taking a big step into the future - and building on the history of the brand with the next automotive legend. The production of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 started in 2011.

The technology package of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is utterly unique. It is based on an innovative monocoque made from carbon-fiber that combines exceptional lightweight engineering with the highest levels of stiffness and safety. The new twelve-cylinder with 6.5 liters' displacement and 690 hp (515 kW) brings together the ultimate in high-revving pleasure with astonishing low-end torque. Thanks to a dry weight of only 3,472 lb (1,575 kilograms), which is extremely low for this class of vehicle, the weight-to-power ratio stands at only 4.96 lb per hp (2.25 kilograms/hp). Even the fantastic 0-60 mph acceleration figure of just 2.8 seconds and the top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h) do not fully describe the Aventador's extreme performance. And yet, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are down by around 20 percent compared with its predecessor, despite the considerable increase in power (+8%).

The 7-speed ISR transmission is unique among road-going vehicles, guaranteeing the fastest shifting time (only 50 milliseconds) and a highly emotional shift feel, while the lightweight chassis with pushrod suspension delivers absolute handling precision and competition-level performance. The expressively-designed interior offers hi-tech features ranging from the TFT cockpit display with Drive Select Mode system. The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is being built in an all-new production facility in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy.

"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."

Since 2013, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 features an extremely fast stop-start system with supercaps for energy storage and cylinder deactivation under partial load that brings significant savings in fuel consumption. Also, the Aventador's chassis setup has also been further refined. The razor-sharp handling is now even more precise, while ride comfort has been noticeably improved with stiffer springs and optimized dampers. New forged alloy wheels in the Dione design were also made available.

The Aventador's top competitors are the Ferrari F12berlinetta and the Aston Martin Vanquish. You can read the comparison here.

Exterior Design: Unmistakably Lamborghini

For Lamborghini, design is always the beauty of aggressive power, the elegance of breathtaking dynamics. From the very first glance, the 2014 Aventador is unmistakably a Lamborghini, clothed in the brand's characteristic and distinctive design language - with its extremely powerful proportions, its exact lines and precise surfaces, and with taut muscularity in every one of its details.

The designers in the Centro Stile Lamborghini have carefully developed this design language to give the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 a significant new edge. It is an avantgarde work of art, an incredibly dynamic sculpture, from the sharply honed front end through the extremely low roofline to the distinctive rear diffuser. Every line has a clear function, every form is dictated by its need for speed, yet the overall look is nothing less than spectacular and breathtaking.

It goes without saying that both doors of the carbon-fiber monocoque open upward - a feature that was first introduced in the now legendary Countach and then used for subsequent V12 models such as Diablo and Murciélago.

Aventador's High-Tech Interior

The Aventador's spacious interior combines the fine exclusivity of premium materials and perfect Italian craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology and generous equipment.

The red switch cover on the broad center tunnel encloses the start button used to awaken the twelve-cylinder. The interior is dominated by a next-generation dashboard - as in a modern airplane, the instruments are presented on a TFT-LCD screen using innovative display concepts. A second screen is dedicated to the standard-fit multimedia and navigation system.
