Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a two-door, two-seater sports car publicly unveiled by Lamborghini at the Geneva Motor Show on 28 February 2011, five months after its initial unveiling in Sant’Agata Bolognese. Internally codenamed LB834, the Aventador was designed to replace the ten-year-old Murciélago as the new flagship model in the Lamborghini line-up starting in 2011. Soon after the Aventador unveiling, Lamborghini announced that it had already sold over 12 months of the production vehicles, with deliveries starting in the second half of 2011.
As Aventador test vehicles made the rounds of the major-market automotive magazines such as Car and Driver and Motor Trend, the reaction was electric. Individual opinions merged to agree on a single conclusion: The Aventador may very well be the best supercar that Lamborghini has ever produced. Car and Driver left no room for speculation, unequivocally publishing their review under the title “The best Lamborghini ever.” Motor Trend calls it “the friendliest V-12 supercar in the world.” Praise for Lamborghini’s all-new V-12 powerplant centered on the engine’s responsiveness, accessible torque and monstrous but smooth power output. Criticism centered mainly around the Aventador’s unrefined single-disc clutch. However, the overarching sentiment that the Aventador evoked in the motorsport world was resoundingly positive.
