The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 has made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Aventador replaces the Lamborghini Murcielago as the car’s flagship model and is fitted with a 6.5-litre V12 engine developing 691bhp.
Lamborghini claims the Aventador will be able to accelerate from 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and be capable of a top speed of 217mph – making it one of the quickest ever cars.
Power is channelled to all four wheels through a seven-speed gearbox which can shift up or down in an incredible 50 milliseconds.
As with all Lamborghini’s this car is named after a bull.
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.
The new Aventador will be one of three major Italian supercars on display in Geneva with the Ferrari FF and Pagani Huayra also on show.
Deliveries for the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 will begin later this summer – setting back UK owners around £242,000.
