Lamborghini Aventado LP700-4 Teased Again in New Video

Lamborghini is continuing to build hype ahead of the reveal of its new supercar at the Geneva Auto Show, releasing a teaser video of the car in action.

Showing more of the exterior of the car as well as a few interior shots, it’s almost possible to make out the new gauge display that Lamborghini has said won’t actually house any physical instruments, but will instead be a display screen.

Perhaps more exciting, near the end of the clip we’re treated to the incredible sounds coming from the 690-hp 6.5-liter V12 engine.

The Aventador is set to debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March. Until then, see AutoGuide’s complete 2011 Geneva Auto Show Preview here.

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Spied Testing [Video]

Lamborghini has already teased its new Aventador LP700-4 supercar several times, but now we have some amateur spy video of the Murcielago successor. Better yet, there isn’t just one car, but two of them doing some final shake-downs ahead of the official reveal at the Geneva Auto Show on March 1st.

Taking design inspiration from the Reventon, powering the new Lambo will be a 6.5-liter V12 rated at roughly 690-hp. It will be 18 percent more powerful than the Murcielago, while also emitting 20 percent fewer emissions. As for the transmission, Lamborghini will make use of its new ISR 7-speed transmission – the first use of a 7-speed with a V12 in the industry. With five gear settings, ( auto strada, auto sport, strada, sport and corsa) the innovative transmission will be able to deliver shift times of just 50 ms in Corsa – which is almost as quick as a Formula 1 car.

Weight will be kept to a minimum thanks to a carbon fiber chassis and the LP700-4 will get a pushrod suspension setup, similar to those found on race cars.

As for the rest of the car, it will be more ergonomic than even the Gallardo, with space for larger drivers. The dash will feature a new TFT instrument cluster, meaning that it won’t have traditional physical gauges, but that all instrumentation will be displayed on a screen.

The Aventador is set to debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March. Until then, see AutoGuide’s complete 2011 Geneva Auto Show Preview here.
