Performance is set to be: 0-62 mph (0–100 km/h) in just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). Lamborghini says that the Aventador is two generations ahead of anything else on sale, using Formula One-style suspension and a lightweight carbon fibre monocoque.
It features a brand new 6.5 litre V12 engine, producing 691 hp (515 kW). Its transmission, a single-clutch 7-speed semi-automatic, is built by Graziano Trasmissioni. Despite being single-clutch, gear-shifts are accomplished in 50 milliseconds.
