Leaked dealer document reveals new Lamborghini Aventador supercar

Last week we showcased the Jaguar C-X75, an electric supercar concept capable of 205mph. This week we shunt our disappointment that the C-X75 will never go into production to bring you leaked details regarding another supercar that’s very much the real deal.

Although without the eco-friendly credentials of Jaguar’s concept C-X75, Lamborghini’s new ‘Aventador’ LP700-4 boasts a conventional 6.5-litre V12 engine that’s able to produce an eye-watering 515kW at 8250rpm and 690Nm at 5500rpm—in return for a paltry 13.5mpg.

Further to that, the LP700-4 also weighs just 1345kg, which makes it significantly lighter than the growling 1575kg Murcielago it will eventually replace.

And, in terms of tyre-shredding momentum, Lamborghini’s latest 4WD beast will apparently use its impressive power-to-weight ratio to rush from 0-100kph in just 2.9 seconds on its way to a blistering top speed of 350kph. Woof!

Other details include a seven-speed transmission, a Haldex all-wheel drive system, 19-inch front wheels, 20-inch rear wheels, six front and four rear calipers, and carbon ceramic brakes.

Italian supercar specialist Lamborghini is expected to officially debut its ‘Aventador’ LP700-4 during the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Lamborghini has not confirmed any of the leaked specifications listed here—including the Aventador name.
