The all-new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is finally here, and it is magnificent. Six hundred and ninety one horses is the total output from the six and a half liter V12 engine. The Aventador weighs in at a relatively light 3472 pounds – a full 200 pounds less than the Murcielago that it replaces. That means we’re looking at a much better power to weight ratio, and ultimately a faster car.
The nearly seven hundred horses are (thankfully) routed to all four wheels. No manual transmission is available, which is probably a good thing. No matter how good a driver you may think you are, you probably couldn’t handle rowing your own gears with this much power on tap.
As for looks, what is there to say? The Aventador is dead sexy. No one will confuse it for anything other than what it is – a Lamborghini. The scissor doors don’t hurt, either.
You can add an Aventador to your Lambo collection for the low, low price of $379,700. That’s before any options, of course. Fancy things like matte paint will run you an extra $14k or so. But really, what’s another $14k when you’re spending nearly four hundred thousand dollars?
