2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, meet Italy’s new raging bull

After all the leaked details and images the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 finally made its world debut today at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Let’s get right to the details – most of which we already know.

Power for the Lamborghini Aventador will come from a 6.5L V12 engine producing 690-hp (700 PS) at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. Mated to the Lamborghini’s new ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) 7-speed transmission (an automated manual gearbox that minimizes shift times by almost 50 percent than with a dual-clutch transmission), the Aventador LP700-4 will go from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph. The Aventador is an all-wheel-drive supercar courtesy of Lamborghini’s Haldex 4-wheel drive system.

Prices for the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador will start at $356,000, including a $2,000 destination charge. With a gas-guzzler tax, final pricing will reach close to $380,000.

It will be available in 13 exterior colors with two new colors including Arancio Argos (shown) and Grigio Estoque. We’d much rather pick between the three matte colors available including Nero Nemesis, Bianco Canopus or Marrone Apus. Inside the Lamborghini Aventador will get a nicely designed interior with start engine button, full TFT cockpit, multimedia system with a 7-inch TFT display, iPod and USB interface, a navigation system, Bluetooth, lifting system, automatic A/C solar sensor system, rain sensing wipers, heated seats, park assist and more.
