The eagerly anticipated Lamborghini that will be on display at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show (7th-17th March) will be named Aventador LP720-4. The rumour comes from autogespot site and confirms what Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said: the model “will not be a revival or retro” it will be a limited edition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the brand. Lamborghini engineers have boosted the power of the V12 engine up from 700 hp to 720 hp and developed new features - many of which are made of carbon fibre - as well as painted the car in a unique hue.
Some details of the car have been revealed by an official short clip. The few seconds of the footage, however, do not provide enough information to assess the characteristics of the car, which anyway will not be the production version of the Sesto Elemento. This latter will be launched in 2013 and will be built in 20 units only, each of which will cost £1.7 million. The price is justified by the fine materials used in its construction. The extensive use of carbon fibre contributes to get a weight / power ratio of 1.75 kg / hp. Its V10 unit produces 570 hp and is expected to cover the 0-100 km / h in 2.5 seconds at a top speed of 320 km / h.
Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will be produced at the new Lamborghini centre for advanced prototyping and assembly study, to ensure higher quality levels than any standard Lamborghini.
