    Lamborghini unveils LP700-4 Aventador V12 rolling chassis

     

    http://www.worldcarfans.com/111022230802/lamborghini-unveils-lp700-4-aventador-v12-rolling-chassis

    According to my source new Lambo will be the best sportscar. Only area where McLaren MP4-12C is better is gearbox technology. Trust me on this-in all other areas new Lambo is at least one generation above McLaren MP4-12C. This is extremly good sign for new Gallardo since it will use very sporty DCT!


    IMO you can't really compare the LP700 to the 12C. And how much the next generation Gallardo will benefit from the LP700 remains yet to be seen. Smiley

    Something a little more than a Revention re-heat.

    I think to expect something from Lamborhini in the next couple of years that is not inspired by the Reventon is wishful thinking. Smiley

    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

     So its a painted Reventon rather than one in primer. Hope it looks better from other angles. 


    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

    haha it now feels German. Too organized. bumper taken from 2010/2011 Lambo's and so many similarities to the Murcialago and Gallardo... Why not make it a step from Countach to Diablo... it appears it is so technically new that this design is just not worthy of the new car.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

     This is a rather excellent shape! Much better than the new Pagani.

    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

     It's so low, isn't it ? Compare it to a Murcie profile pic.


    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

    Hope this helps Smiley

    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

     ggbh8, THANKS ! Nice work, very helpful. Hope you don't mind if I save it onto my laptop.

    Anyone else see what I mean ? I know the new wheels are larger than Murcie's 18s, but the proportion is amazing.

     Think it's the very low angle of the shot.


    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

    I don't think it's exceptionally lower than a Murciélago or Reventón. And to be honest I'm not that overwhelmed still.

     Really ? Err.. it's a long shot to get a yes for an answer, but is it the pride of 458 Italia ownership talking ? Smiley

    Anyway, I'm loving the LP700-4 !

    Thanks shin,  but I can't take the credit for it.

    Reminds me more of this due to the more sharp angles it has1973-lamborghini-countach-22_1280x0w.jpg

    No shin, not at all. It has more to do with the simple fact, that I don't really dig the most recent Lamborghini design. All those edges and angles like the Superleggera versions of the Gallardo/Murciélago (bad), Reventón (worse), Sesto elemento (worst) - I don't like that at all. First and second generation Countach (LP400 and LP500, but without 25th anniversary model), orginal Diablo, first generation Gallardo and of course the Miura (even the Miura concept) are the Lamborghini designs that look good to me. But the rest - no thanks.

    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

    IMO this new shape will not age as well as the Murci did... Not my cup of tea.


    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

    I saw it at a presentation a while ago and loved it. But saying that I think that it's not a car that will grow on you. You either like it from the beggining or you dont. So far the  leaked pictures don't do it much justice IMHO.


    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

    It looks very Gallardo-ish


    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

     This is a rather excellent shape! Much better than the new Pagani.

    Agreed. I think new Aventador LP700-4 is amazing supercar.

    I saw the car for all angles and I love it. This is the first supercar that I would love to own.

    I hope so.  The Murci is very well loved by many people i know over here.


    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

    My heart is not going pitter patter like it did when I first saw the Gallardo or the Murci.

    As a matter of fact it looks more like a stretched Gallardo, but the stretching unbalanced the proportions.

    +1. I hear the performance of this car will be astonishing as well. Smiley

    Love it. In a proper color this thing is a dream Smiley

    Re: Murcielago successor/replacement

     Its not that I don't like it, I do. Its just such a color sensitive car, one shade the wrong way and it looks like the aftermath of a summer slasher film.
