The bedrooms of teenage boys the world over are about to get a special new coating -- pictures of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.
The car, the replacement for the Murcielago, is based on the crazy-as-clown trousers we reported on last year at the Paris Motor Show. As such, it sports a super-lightweight, all-carbon fibre body that, before the engine, drivetrain and ancillary components are fitted, weighs around 230kg -- nothing in automotive terms.
That weight allows for some other eye-popping numbers. The Aventador LP-700-4's 6.5-litre, V12 engine cranks out a whopping 690bhp. It'll do 0-60mph in a Veyron-frightening 2.9 seconds, and it has a top speed of 217mph -- way in excess of any current.
We can only imagine what that sort of performance feels like, but we do know what it looks like. Some clever clogs has released a video of the Aventador, which shows the car travelling -- a little too sedately for our tastes -- around a snowy mountain pass.
Despite some annoying black and white camouflage, it looks and sounds stunning -- like a slightly flattened great white shark that's swallowed a massive chainsaw.
There's very little not to like about this car, expect perhaps the name. Aventador might sound like a sort of Latino demon bull, but we hear the word is actually Spanish slang for "he who farts".
Still, what's a few guffs between friends? The Aventador will go on show at the forthcoming 2011 Geneva Motor Show, where we'll be on hand to get the sexiest hands-on pics. In the meantime, check video of the car in action below.
