DeDe, I love you!
Thanks for sharing, altough I've to read it two or three times to understand it
I've been waiting for this vid. Sadly there was not much to see. But that is how an Aventadro should have come from factory: RWD!
I saw the Dark Knight Rises this weekend and the Aventador is pure sex. I would not recommend beige/silver on any sports car bit the colour scheme does make the car stand out even more. It sparkles like a gobblin. Almost wish there was more of it in the film.
Nice sounds. Love the shifts, more than dual-clutch.
Tanner gets to drive the Aventador. Starts around 32:00:
I must say that Top Gear USA's filming and editing has improved a lot since their first season. Long gone the days with bad lighting and shaky camera mounts.
I caught Batman's Aventador again.
Looks like he got fed up with the no front license plate tickets and has finally installed it.
Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4: More efficiency with cylinder deactivation and innovative start/stop system
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is extending its leading position among super sports cars with groundbreaking technologies - an innovative and extremely fast start/stop system with supercaps for energy storage and cylinder deactivation under partial load bring significant savings in fuel consumption. Plus, the 2013 Aventador comes with a host of new individualization options.
Automobili Lamborghini is using a highly advanced and utterly unique technology for its new start/stop system in the Aventador. The energy for re-start following a stop phase (e.g. at a traffic light) is delivered by high-performance capacitors known as supercaps. They enable extremely fast start-up - full V12 power is available again in a barely detectable 180 milliseconds, significantly faster than with conventional systems. And, in keeping with Lamborghini's lightweight design philosophy, this new technology also delivers a weight saving of three kilograms. The classic vehicle battery supplies only the electronic systems, occupies very little space and lasts virtually the entire vehicle life.
The second new efficiency technology is the Cylinder Deactivation System (CDS). Under low load and at speeds of less than 135 km/h, the CDS deactivates one cylinder bank, allowing the power unit to run as an inline six. But with just the slightest movement of the gas pedal, the extreme performance of the V12 engine with its 515 kW/700 hp is back online. The CDS and the start/stop system work incredibly quickly, are virtually imperceptible to the driver and have absolutely no negative impact on the amazing driving experience. Yet, they deliver a noticeable benefit in efficiency - the average fuel consumption of the Aventador LP 700-4 drops by seven percent to 16 liters/100km. At highway speeds of around 130 km/h the reduction in consumption and emissions is as much as 20 percent. In total the CO2 emissions of the Aventador have been reduced from 398 g/km to 370 g/km.
The Aventador's chassis setup has also been further refined. The razor-sharp handling is now even more precise, while ride comfort has been noticeably improved with stiffer springs and optimized dampers. New forged alloy wheels in the Dione design are now also available.
Carbon fiber is a lightweight material that features extensively in the Aventador. A substantial proportion of the super sports car's technological superiority is thanks to its CFRP monocoque. This material now takes on an even higher profile with a package of optional CFRP components - front spoiler, air intakes, engine cover panel, powertrain cladding and interior applications in CFRP set accents in the Aventador's unique design.
Conversation on the new Aventador Roadster continues here in this thread:

Lamborghini CEO says that the Urus SUV will not arrive until 2017
The Lamborghini Urus SUV concept car shown at the Beijing Motor Show earlier this year is unlikely to hit the road until 2017 - or even at all.
Speaking exclusively to Auto Express at the unveil of the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, CEO Stephan Winkelmann said “the Urus isn’t an immediate priority and won’t happen until 2017 at the earliest, if the board decides to sign it off.
“To be honest, we don’t need it right now, as we have plenty of new cars available that are selling well and will continue to sell well.”
If it does go into production, the Urus would use engines borrowed from parent firm Audi and run on the VW Group’s forthcoming MLB platform that will underpin the next generation Q7 SUV.
The Urus – named after the ancestor of all domestic cattle – is just one of a number of ideas that the Lamborghini chief has experimented with in recent years, following the Estoque large saloon concept.
However, at present it looks like Lamborghini is set to stick with what it knows – building supercars. When asked if the new Aventador was powerful enough not to need an even higher-performance Superleggera model, he said: “Well the Aventador is a powerful car, but there is always more. We have a few ideas for this car…”
