It was inevitable. The lead time required for print magazines has once again given way to the early release of embargoed material.
This time, from the pages of Evo Magazine Croatia a photo has found its way to our inbox via an anonymous tipster. Just a few hours after Lamborghini revealed photos of the naked rolling chassis we have this clear top front view of the LP700-4 Aventador super sports car - skin intact.
Just in case you haven't already memorized its vital statistics, the LP700-4 Aventador is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 700 PS (690 bhp / 515 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a Graziano ISR 7-speed automatic (single clutch with dual sychronizers) transmission and a Haldex all-wheel drive system that enables the supercar to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
It has a full carbon fiber monocoque or passenger cell that weighs just 147.5 kilograms (324.5 lbs), while the whole body-in-white tips the scales at 229.5 kilograms (505 lbs). This body structure enables a torsional rigidity measurement of 35,000 Newton meters per degree of twist.
The inefficiencies of print media are a boon for interactive media - we salute thee.
