Lamborghini Shows Aventador LP700-4 Carbon Fibre Monocoque

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Carbon Fibre Monocoque

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Carbon Fibre MonocoqueLamborghini has released more details about the Murcielago successor, that will make its world debut next month in Geneva.

New information reveals that the entire cell of the new Lamborghini supercar is made of carbon fibre and has been designed as a monocoque structure. The load-bearing structure of the vehicle is engineered as a “single shell” that functions physically as one component, thus taking full advantage of the extreme rigidity of CFRP. Formula 1 race cars have been built using CFRP monocoques for many years – and have proven their crash worthiness time and again.

The full monocoque weighs only 147.5 kilograms, while the entire body weighs 229.5 kilograms

We already have reported that the Aventador LP700-4 will use a new 6.5 litre V12 engine that outputs 700 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque.. This new V12 is mated to a new ISR transmission, that weighs just 79kg and sends power to all four wheels.

The new Lamborghini V12 supercar also features a new pushrod spring and damper system inspired from Formula 1 cars and tuned to meet the needs of a high-performance road-going vehicle. For more details see the press release below.
