Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4: Live Shots from Geneva

There's no doubt that the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is the worst kept secret of the 81st Geneva International Motor Show. In addition to a bevy of studio shots that were leaked online in the past few days, we now have live shots of the Murcielago's replacement from Geneva, courtesy of the folks over at Autogespot.

"We have just received from a friend a few exclusive photos of the new LP700-4. It is the Grigio Estoque colorded Aventador that will be shown on the press day on the 1st of March," Emil from Autogespot told us. And well, there you have it: the new Aventador. We'll have all the juicy details in a couple of days when Lamborghini officially debuts its new flagship model at the Geneva show, but scroll down for the condensed version.

The Aventador comes with an edgier design clearly inspired from the limited run Reventon. It sports a new lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque chassis, while power is provided by a brand-new 6.5-liter V12 engine churning out 700-horsepower at 8,250 rpm and a peak torque of 690 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) at 5,500 rpm. The preliminary stats make word of a -100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). Scroll down to enjoy all the pictures.
