The 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is the successor to the Lamborghini Murciélago and the first Lamborghini car with the company's all-new 6.5L (6,498 cc) naturally aspirated V12 engine, codenamed L539.
In keeping with Lamborghini's tradition of naming cars after fighting bulls, the Aventador is named after the bull of the same name that fought particularly valiantly in the bull ring of Zaragoza, Spain in 1993 and earned the Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera for its courage in the arena.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 features a seven-speed single-clutch semi-automatic transmission built by Graziano Transmissioni. The new V12 engine, codenamed L539, produces 690 hp (700 PS; 515 kW) and 509 ft·lb (690 Nm) of torque. It is the first all-new powerplant since the 3.5L engine in the 350GT.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 debuted in Forza Motorsport 4 and has returned for all subsequent games.
Just being in the presence of an Aventador is enough to make one feel regal. Driving this mad bull can be likened to finding Elvis and winning the lottery… on the same day; thrilling, fortuitous, and maybe a bit surreal. The Aventador exudes sensual power, drop dead beauty, and performance numbers that seem derived from NASA blueprints. This is a bareknuckle brawler of a supercar, brandishing 700 bhp and more than 500 foot/lbs. of torque. In short, the Aventador’s potential is limited less by its engineering than by the bravery of its driver.
Just being in the presence of an Aventador is enough to make one feel regal. To drive one is an experience that ranks closely with finding Elvis and winning the lottery... simultaneously. The car exudes of sensual power, drop dead beauty, and speed-fueled desire. The Aventador is everything an exotic car should be.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4's acceleration, top speed, and launch are excellent, let alone having the highest top speed of any post-2010 Lamborghini car in the series, interestingly even higher than the Lamborghini Veneno. However, because of its weight and width, the Aventador's handling isn't great, but certainly isn't the worst either. The Aventador's little brother, the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4, handles better due to being lighter. In Forza Horizon 3, the Aventador LP700-4 is capable of hitting 235 mph (379 km/h). As a stock car, the Aventador LP700-4 beats the 2017 Acura NSX and 2017 Ford GT in a drag race and the former on a track as well.
When fully upgraded, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 becomes extremely fast and is capable of reaching extreme speeds well above 256 mph (412 km/h). A well-tuned Aventador is capable of completing the full one-mile drag route within 20 seconds or less.
In Forza Horizon, the Aventador's V12 was available only for Lamborghini cars.
In the Forza Horizon series, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 qualifies for the "Hypercar" championship.
In Forza Horizon 3, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 can be customized with the Liberty Walk body kit. This body kit was originally intended for the Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario, which isn't featured in the Forza games.
In the games, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4's power output is shown as 700 hp (710 PS; 522 kW) instead of 690 hp (700 PS; 515 kW). "LP700-4" refers to the car's longitudinal mid-engine position ("LP"), power output in PS ("700"), and four-wheel-drive ("4").
The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is lighter than the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV, but to keep true to real life, the Aventador LP700-4 would have to weigh 3978 lb (1804 kg).
