Aventador LP 700-4[edit] Production will be limited to 4,000 units (4,099 Murciélagos were built). The molds used to make the carbon-fibre monocoque are expected to last 500 units each and only 8 have been made.[8] The car's shape also borrows heavily from Lamborghini's limited-edition Reventón and their Estoque concept car. The vehicle was unveiled at Lummus Park, Miami, followed by Miami International Airport,[9] followed by Auto China 2014 (with Nazionale configuration via Lamborghini Ad Personam personalization program).[10] Specifications[edit] Lamborghini Aventador 6.5 litre 60° V12 engine MENU0:00 Lamborghini Aventador start-up and acceleration Engine[edit] The Aventador LP 700–4 uses Lamborghini's new 700 PS (510 kW; 690 bhp) 6.5 litre 60° V12 engine weighing 235 kg. Known internally as the L539,[3] the new engine is Lamborghini's fourth in-house engine and second V12. It is the first all-new V12 since the 3.5 litre powerplant found in the 350GT.[11] Displacement 6,498 cc (396.5 cu in) Max. power 700 PS (510 kW; 690 bhp) @ 8,250 rpm Power to weight 432 PS (318 kW; 426 bhp) per tonne Max. torque 690 N·m (510 lb·ft) @ 5,500 rpm CO2 emissions 398 g/km Combined fuel consumption 17.2 L/100 km (16.4 mpg-imp; 13.7 mpg-US) [12] Performance[edit] 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph): 2.9 s [13] 400 m (1⁄4 mi): 10.6 s @ 220 km/h (137 mph) Top speed: Official: 350 km/h (217 mph),[13][14] measured by Sport Auto magazine: 370 km/h (230 mph)[15] 97–0 km/h (60–0 mph): 30 m (100 ft)[citation needed] Its transmission, a single-clutch seven-speed semi-automatic, is built by Graziano Trasmissioni.[16][17] Despite being single-clutch, gear-shifts are accomplished in 50 milliseconds. The new, electronically controlled, all-wheel drive system is developed and supplied by the Swedish company Haldex Traction, offering traction[18] and handling capabilities based on their 4th generation technology.[19] Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster[edit] The 2013 Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster was announced for production in November 2012, equipped with the same V12 engine as the coupé version, Lamborghini claims again that it can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds and a top speed equaling that of the coupe, at 349 km/h (217 mph).[20] The removable roof consists of two carbon fiber panels, weighing 6 kg (13 lb) each, which required the reinforcement of the rear pillar to compensate for the loss of structural integrity as well as to accommodate the rollover protection and ventilations systems for the engine. The panels are of easy removal and are stored in the front luggage compartment. The Aventador Roadster has a unique engine cover design and an attachable wind deflector to improve cabin airflow at high speed as well as a gloss black finish in the A-pillars, windshield header, roof panels, and rear window area. The car has a US$441,600 base price. With a total weight of 1,625 kg (3,583 lb) it's only 50 kg (110 lb) heavier than the coupé (the weight of the roof, plus additional stiffening in the sills and A-pillars).
