Lamborghini Murcielago Successor Features Pushrod Suspension For Race-car Precision

The new Lamborghini V12 supercar which will debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March will feature an innovative and highly sophisticated suspension concept. The pushrod spring and damper concept was inspired from Formula 1 cars and tuned to meet the needs of a high-performance road-going vehicle.

Murciélago successor is going to be the first car with pushrod suspension in series production. Unique to this new V12 supercar is also aluminum double wishbone suspension and a carbon ceramic brake system. The new supercar from Lamborghini produces 700 hp from a 6.5-litre V12 engine, mated to a new ISR transmission, that weighs just 79kg.

Official name of the Murcielago successor is probably Aventador or 834 and it will have all the traditional Lamborghini cues like all-wheel drive, scissor doors with inspiration for its design coming from the military.

For full details about the new pushrod suspension see the press release below.
