Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 at launch
Following the launch of the Ferrari FF, arch rival Lamborghini has launched their flagship hypercar, the Aventador LP700-4 in India today.
The Murcielago replacement is Lamborghini’s most powerful offering yet and boasts of a 6.5-litre V12 motor which belts out 700ps (691bhp). All that power is transmitted to all four wheels via a seven-speed transmission. The Aventador uses new-generation reinforced carbon fiber which has been developed with help from Boeing Aerospace. As a result the Aventador weighs just 1578kg, which is lighter than the Murcielago by about 100kg.
The 700ps of power and relatively light weight mean that the Aventador has a claimed 0-100kph acceleration time of just 2.9 seconds and can hit a top speed of over 350kph. The car’s interiors too are a class act and a jump in terms of quality from the Murcielago.
The hypercar has been launched by Lamborghini’s Delhi dealer Exclusive Motors Pvt. Ltd. and shall retail at Rs. 3.69 crore (ex-showroom).
