The dashboard of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is pure high technology. As with a contemporary aircraft, the instruments are presented on a TFT-LCD screen, while a second screen is totally dedicated to the multimedia and navigation systems.
The car is built around a full monocoque, with the whole occupant cell made from a single physical component. This ensures extreme strength and rigidity, optimising occupant protection. It also delivers razor-sharp handling precision and responses.
Together with the front and rear aluminium frames, the monocoque achieves incredible torsional stiffness measured at 35,000Nm per degree, yet only weighs 229.5kg.
The specially developed lightweight V12 engine develops 700hp at 8,250rpm, and 509lbs/ft of torque at 5,500rpm. Importantly, the torque curve is flat, so huge flexible power is available across the rev range. To exploit this extraordinary engine, Lamborghini engineers have created the advanced Independent Shifting Rods (ISR) transmission. This is much lighter than a conventional dual clutch transmission and more compact than an ordinary manual unit, while delivering the fastest, smoothest changes possible.
