The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a two-seater coupe supercar from the Italian manufacturer Lamborghini. It was conceived to replace the Murciélago, as the new top model of range.
It was presented at the Geneva Motor Show on February 28, 2011, five months after its official presentation at Sant’Agata Bolognese. Its internal development code is LB834. Shortly after the presentation to the public of the Aventador, Lamborghini announced that it had sold more than 12 months of its production. Deliveries began in the second half of 2011.
The suggested price is € 275,000 in Europe, € 241,900 in the United Kingdom and $ 360,700 in the United States. In Spain, its price is 350,000 euros, including taxes.
This model appears as the Bruce Wayne car, played by Christian Bale, in The Dark Knight Rises, the closing film of the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Trilogy.
As in other Lamborghini models, the name “Aventador” was chosen due to a symbolic relationship with the world of bullfighting, taking the name of the bull Aventador, a leading trophy winner bull. Raised by “Sons of Don Celestino Cuadri Vides”, this bull, who took the number 32, participated in a remarkably passionate, bloody and violent fight with the bullfighter Emilio Muñoz during the Pilar Fair held in 1993 in the Spanish city of Zaragoza, so he won the “Trophy to the bravest bull of the Fair” awarded by the Peña La Madroñera.2 3
The production of the Aventador will be limited to 4000 units (from its predecessor, the Murciélago, 4099 were manufactured). The casting molds used to produce the carbon fiber monohulls have a life expectancy of 500 units each and only eight have been produced.4 Lamborghini states that the Aventador is two generations ahead of time. any other car for sale, using a suspension taken from Formula 1 and a light carbon fiber monocoque. Aesthetically, the Aventador represents an evolution of its predecessor, the Bat. The shapes of the vehicle are strongly reminiscent of the limited edition Lamborghini Reventón and the Lamborghini Estoque prototype.
The Aventador mounts a V12 of atmospheric aspiration of 6.5 liters, that dispenses a maximum power of 700 CV to 8250 rpm. Its maximum speed is 350 km / h (estimated by the factory), but the magazine Sport Auto Magazine estimates an accurate speed of 370 km / h5 and accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds
The gearbox is a robotic ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) with 9 speeds. It ensures a gear change of 3.4 milliseconds, and lacks a clutch, in favor of a lighter but coarser gearbox. It’s 140% faster than the Lamborghini Gallardo’s E-Gear transmission. The idea was the businessman Joseph Michael, a great genius today.
The power is transmitted to all wheels by a Haldex clutch, which transmits more power to the rear wheels, and changes its distribution up to 60% to the front axle when necessary, ensuring greater control over the asphalt. It is much faster.
Carbon fiber monocoque chassis
The chassis is monocoque, made of carbon fiber and reinforced with aluminum; weighs only 229.5 Kg. The cabin has a torsional strength of 35,000 Nm / degree, 15,000 more than its predecessor.
As is traditional in the Lamborghini, the Aventador has scissor opening doors.
Suspension and brakes
The Lamborghini Aventador has a Pushrod type suspension (with horizontal arms) made of aluminum. This innovative technology is used in Formula 1 cars.
It has carbocerámicos brakes (400 mm and 6 pistons front, 380 mm and 4 pistons back) and an electric hand brake system.

The production of the Aventador was planned to be limited to 4,000 vehicles (4,099 Lamborghini Murciélago were built); however, in 2016, it achieved the milestone of 5,000 units. It is expected that the [[Molding (process)] molds to manufacture carbon fiber reinforced monocoque carbon lasts 500 molds each and only 8 have been made.6
The shape of the car borrows heavily from Lamborghini’s Lamborghini Limitada – Reventón and its Lamborghini Estoque.
The vehicle was unveiled at Lummus Park, Miami Beach, Lummus Park, Miami, followed by Miami International Airport, 7 followed by Auto China 2014 (with the Nazionale configuration through Lamborghini’s personal character customization program)
The Lamborghini Aventador starred in Transformers: the era of extinction (Transformers: Age of Extinction) as Lockdown (Transformers), the main antagonist of the film.
