DORO Likes: Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – Successor Of Lamborghini Murciélago

Lamborghini continues its fighting bull tradition this morning as the exotic car maker unveils the replacement to the often mispronounced Murciélago. Having new competitors like PAGANI C9 Huayra and Bugatti Veyron on its crosshair, the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a leaner, meaner beast than its predecessor. Like all Lamborghini model, one can trace back Aventador’s lineage to a 1993 fighting bull of the same name at Spain’s Saragossa Arena. Its build, however, is anything but a legacy from the past. Developed with the help from aerospace giant Boeing, the cockpit is of one-piece carbon fiber, weighs in at a mere 324 pounds. Rated at 690 horsepower, its new 6.5-liter V12 powerplant is able to propel the 3,500 pound beast from 0-60 mph in less 2.9 seconds, faster than you can finish reading this write-up. What are not visible are the innovations and features that went into this matador slayer. As Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO ofAutomobili Lamborghini stated, “”The Aventador is a jump of two generations in terms of design and technology, it’s the result of an entirely new project…” What is more attractive, aside from its bloody red Arancio Argos colorway, is its price at around $370,000. A bargain considering most of its counterparts easily cost double or triple of that. via: Autoblog
