Here's the first live photos of the new raging bull — the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. To coincide with the first person-to-supercar shot, we've also created this first look — to give you everything you need to know. And yes, it does include the first shot of its scissor doors.
Today's no different. In addition to the live shot above (courtesy of our friends at autogespot), we've also got a few more press shots including a first look at the before-only-rumored scissor doors.
The Aventador's set to be officially unveiled this week at the Geneva Motor Show where it will power out onto the stage with a 6.5-liter V12 engine with an output of 700hp at 8,250 RPM and max torque of 509 lb/ft at 5,500 RPM.
But this new load of bull doesn't include just a new engine. Lamborghini's also mating a brand-new transmission to its new beating beast of a bull heart.
They're calling it the "Lamborghini ISR" - an automated manual gearbox combining "minimal shift times and everyday usability with low weight and dimensions to guarantee that emotional sensation from gearshifts, which customers expect from a super sports car at the very top of the premier league."
The gearbox supposedly provides an almost 50% shorter shift time than with a dual-clutch transmission –- with the benefits of lower weight and smaller size.
And oh, yes, it'll have a light frame. Thanks to Lamborghini CEO Stephen Winkelmann's clarion call for weight loss, the new bullish beast will feature a carbon fiber monocoque chassis that'll cut the weight 500 lbs. from the Murcielago while upping rigidity by a whopping 70%.
Which is pretty amazing considering it'll be a four-wheel drive supercar.
All of this should translate into some seriously mind-blowing performance - it'll supposedly make a 0-to-62 time in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217 MPH.
We can't wait to see it live ourselves next week.
