Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
What sets the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4? It wasn’t launched necessarily as a supercar per se. It was launched, in spite of its high-power performance, with a focus on things like stop-start technology, cylinder deactivation, and fuel economy.
It’s a supercar that’s also a super performer, relatively speaking, when it comes to fuel economy. The 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 could almost be considered green – at least for a supercar.
One of the more noticeable aspects of the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 are its dimensions. It has an overall length of 188.19 inches and a width of 88.98 inches, including the exterior mirrors. Yet, it sits squat in its presentation with an almost Lilliputian height of 44.72 inches.
The 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, which has a carbon-fiber monocoque, features doors that open upwards. These style of doors were first introduced in the now legendary Countach. The style was also in use for subsequent V12 models like the Lamborghini Diablo and Lamborghini Murciélago.
One noticeable aspect of this green Lambo is the relative spaciousness of the interior. It features premium materials combined with the latest technology. One nice design touch that further enhances the exclusivity of the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is red switch cover on the broad center tunnel. It hides the start button that brings the V-12 engine to life.
Also dominating the interior is a new dashboard that was inspired by modern aviation. The TFT-LCD screen presents the various instruments with the use of ground-breaking display concepts. There is a second screen that is used for multimedia entertainment and navigation.
The new 6.5-liter, V12 has 700 horsepower. With a dry weight of 3,472 lbs., the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has a weight-to-power ratio stands at only 4.96 lbs. per horsepower. Anything below 5 is considered high performance.
In one performance area, the Aventador draws inspiration from its immediate predecessor the Murciélago. The Lambo features electronically managed air intakes. They come open depending on the ambient temperature and the need for cooling air. This helps ensure maximum aerodynamic efficiency.
