Jay visits with President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini Stephan Winkelmann for an up-close look at the world’s latest hypercar, featuring a road-shredding 700hp V12 with the highest power-to-weight of its class.
The video below ticks all of those boxes, plus a few more, including a close-up look at the car’s underpinnings with the director of Lamborghini’s R&D department. Oh, and a set of carbon fiber luggage, made from the same stuff as the car.
Hit the jump to see Leno and his new Italian friends go in-depth with the Aventador. Of course Leno gets to drive the Aventador at the end, but even he had to hit the road with a chaperon.
Just a small recap, Aventador LP700-4 will be powered by a 6.5L V12 engine making 690-hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. Mated to the company’s new ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) 7-speed transmission, 0 to 60 mph will come in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph.
It will cost $393,695.
