After a career that lasted about ten years, Italy’s legendary Lamborghini Murcielago has already been replaced with a new model. And what a model!
The new Bull God will feature an earth shattering 700hp V12 and the highest power to weight ratio of any car in its class. Since you’re asking, the whole thing weighs 1,575kg – lean, for a two-door instrument of shouty oversteer.
The Aventador gets Lambo’s new ISR transmission, claimed to be faster and ‘more emotional’ than a dual-clutch system. The suspension is a Formula 1-style inboard pushrod spring and damper set-up, a system previously seen on only the most expensive hypercars, such as the Ferrari Enzo and Maserati MC12.
Perhaps this is the first video in the world that has the delicious V12 of the Aventador showing off it’s wares.
A bit of trivia, Aventador was the name of the bull that won the “Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñena” in 1993.
Prices start at £201,900 with first deliveries beginning later this year.
