The Italian based automaker Lamborghini has recently introduced its newest supercar, the Aventador LP700-4, to Japan.

While everyone in the automotive industry is being busy in Asia with the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, Lamborghini has chosen a different place to present to the local market its Aventador LP700-4, and the supercar has been unveiled at Japan’s National Stadium, where the 1963 Tokyo Summer Olympics were held. The company’s CEO Stephan Winkelman and the Director of Research and Development, Maurizio Reggiani, have attended the event.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 was officially unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, five months after it has been originally presented in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The two-door, two-seater sports car is powered by a 6.5 liter V12 engine which is developing a total output of 690 horsepower and it’s being mated to a seven-speed single clutch transmission. The Italian automaker says that the Aventador can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and it has a top speed of 349 km/h (217 mph).

According to the manufacturer, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is burning an average of 17.2 liters of fuel every 100 km (13.5 mpg) and the supercar is emitting 398 g/km of CO2. The suggested retail price in Europe for the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is 255.000 EUR (379.700 USD). The Italian sports car has also been officially launched in Brazil, in a hangar at the Camp de Marte private airport in Sao Paolo, in mid-November.
