As the replacement for Lamborghini's Murciélago model, the 2012 Aventador LP700-4 prototype proves the automaker's reputation for fast cars and luxury isn't going anywhere soon, reports Car and Driver.
Featuring a large front fender with a steep grill drop-off but an aerodynamic roof, the design is simple. Chic but manly, the Aventador "will tick all the boxes on the bleeding-edge-supercar checklist," says the auto magazine.
With a 6.5-liter 12-V engine, there's plenty of juice for the 700 horsepower and 509 ft-lbs of torque capabilities.
The door is also a unique design, with a massive hole for air to streamline through, so big in fact, that someone could "kick a football through" it.
The Aventador uses a carbon-fiber combination monocoque, allowing the exterior to support the interior, a rare feat achieved by automobiles. This technique keeps the weight down, which means drivers can get plenty of speed out of this bad boy.
A single-clutch transmission, which can allegedly shift quicker than most dual-clutch systems, completes the Aventador's already long list of superb features.
Drivers who love fast cars and even faster gears should keep an eye out for this new model.
