Lamborghini’s latest supercar, the 2012 Aventador LP700-4 is one of their greatest creations to date. The Italian carmaker delivers a behind-the-scenes video that gives us a peak at how the car came to be, from drawing board to asphalt. We’ve covered the Aventador in the past, so be sure to check this page out for more details on the vehicle.
Oakley Design has unveiled the first tuning program for Lamborghini’s LP700-4 Aventador. The design studio calls their rendition of the supercar the LP760-2 as it packs 760 horsepower (a jump of 60 from the original) and drops the all-wheel-drive system for a real-wheel drive option. The Aventador loses some weight as well with the help of Intrax. Suspension upgrades and the removal of the front differential, drive shafts and associated front drivetrain parts allow it to drop about 187 pounds.
Lamborghini’s latest bull – the Aventador LP700-4 – was finally unveiled the other day at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and boy was it worth the way. The Italian automaker’s 6.5L V12 engine dishes out 690 horses at 8,250 rpm and a max torque of 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. Performance is taken to new heights with Lamborghini’s new ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) 7-speed transmission. It’s an automated manual gearbox that minimizes shift times by almost 50 percent than with a dual-clutch transmission. Toss all this together with Lamborghini’s Haldex 4-wheel drive system and output peaks at 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph.
