Call it the Aventador, call it the Jota, just don't call it late for the quarter-mile. The official specs and ordering guide to Lamborghini's LP700-4 have leaked via Teamspeed. Fast, colorful and lots of options. Lambo city.

According to a self-identified participant in a Lamborghini preview, the upcoming LP700-4 is the Murcielago replacement we've been calling Jota. It'll offer a 700-hp V12, a carbon-fiber body, sub-3.0-second 0-to-62 mph time, and hit 217 mph.
Whether it's the Murcielago-replacing Lamborghini Jota, or the Lambo-that-isn't-Jota-as-it-only-has-ten-cylinders, this third teaser image belongs to one of two Paris Motor Show Lamborghini unveils and gives us our first glimpse of the devilish black-and-red-themed carbon fibergasmic interior.
The Lamborghini Jota's over-the-top design will redefine what "supercar" means, as shown in this teaser. But Lamborghini's got another mission: no more fatties. They say top speed's irrelevant and will focus on handling and weight reduction through more carbon fiber.
This is the first glimpse of what's rumored to be the Murciélago-replacing, 700-hp Lamborghini Jota, set for a debut at the Paris Motor Show. Angular.
These days, when a new car's more powerful than the one it replaces, the advantage is usually limited by an increase in weight. Not the Lamborghini Jota, the bull-headed brand's Murciélago replacement. It should be lighter and make 700 HP.
