After Diablo and Murcielago, Lamborghini introduced Aventador LP700-4 at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show on Mar 1. Before you can make that call to book a unit, the Aventador which goes into production in the second half of 2011 has already sold out more than 12 months production, of which he deliveries start in the second half of 2011. The new Bull God, which according to its CEO is a jump of two generations in terms of design and technology has a limited production of only 4,000 units.

Lamborghini decided to name its new flagship “Aventador”, the name of a bull that entered into battle on October 1993 at the Saragossa Arena, earning the “Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera” for its outstanding courage (*whoa*). Prices for the 700hp V12 Lamborghini Aventador start at $ 356,000, including a $ 2,000 destination charge. With a gas-guzzler tax, final pricing will reach close to $ 380,000. The first customer will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 in late summer 2011.

Lamborghini Aventador packed with unique technology – innovative monocoque made from carbon-fiber that combines exceptional lightweight engineering with the highest levels of stiffness and safety. Thanks to a dry weight of only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 lb), which is extremely low for this class of vehicle, the weight-to-power ratio stands at only 2.25 kilograms per hp (4.96 lb/hp). With 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in just 2.9 seconds and the top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph), this is not a normal beast for the weak of heart.

The ISR transmission is unique, guaranteeing the fastest shifting time (only 50 milliseconds) and a highly emotional shift feel. The expressively-designed interior offers hi-tech features ranging from the TFT cockpit display with Drive Select Mode system. Somehow Lamborghini has that distinguishable exterior design and you can’t mistaken this new supercar as the Lamborghini from afar. It’s a sculpture of an art. Aventador has a full monocoque – the entire occupant cell, with tub and roof, is one single physical component.

Now, watch (if you have not already done so) how this Bull was put together, piece-by-piece when Aventador was scheduled for display inside the “Chiostro del Bramante,” a contemporary art museum located in the historical center of Rome. As the museum wasn’t built with anticipation that one fine day it would host a “La Forza del Toro” (that’s Italian for “The Force of the Bull”), engineers had to squeeze and assemble the raging bull piece-by-piece inside the exhibition hall. Now, that’s an art.
