Model Highlights

Lamborghini's 2012 Aventador LP700-4 is the Bolognese carmaker's latest scissor-door, mid-engined supercar. The sleek, sharp-edged machine cuts a sinister profile that says much about its capabilities on the road. The stiff monocoque chassis is made entirely of carbon fiber-a Lamborghini first-and the body is a mix of carbon fiber and aluminum, with a three-position rear wing that deploys at different speeds.

The heart of the Aventador--as is the case with every Lamborghini--is its engine. The car is powered by a mid-mounted 6.5L V12. The engine features variable valve timing and a dry sump lubrication system, which allows it to sit lower in the car for an improved center of gravity. The big V12 produces 700 hp at 8,250 rpm and 507 ft-lb of torque at 5,500 rpm.

All that power is put to the road through a smart all-wheel-drive system and a 7-speed sequential manual transmission that offers near-instantaneous shifts.

The Aventador rides on alloy wheels (19 inches front, 20 inches rear) and Pirelli PZero tires, with large carbon ceramic disc brakes providing stopping power. Suspension is and advanced system fitted inboard via pushrod monotube dampers, much like the setup found on open-wheel race cars.

The cockpit is an exercise in race-car-for-the-street ergonomics. All instrumentation is displayed on an LCD screen, with a separate LCD for the navigation and stereo system. Interior surfaces are leather and available in nearly any color combination, thanks to Lamborghini's Ad Personam customer individualization program.

Driver-controlled electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard, as is a cabin full of intelligent airbags.


Model News

The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a new model for 2012. The 6.5L V12 supercar boasts a carbon fiber monocoque chassis with aluminum front and rear subframes, as well as a carbon fiber and aluminum body.

The car is suspended through front and rear horizontal monotube dampers with pushrods to activate them, and braking comes courtesy of 6-piston calipers up front and four-piston units in the rear, clamping down on huge carbon ceramic discs.

The dry-sump engine is rated at 700 horsepower while torque is listed at 507 ft-lb. Power is put to all four wheels through a single-clutch 7-speed sequential manual transmission, and the newest Lambo is good for the sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and the quarter-mile in an astounding 10.5 seconds, on its way to a 217 mph top speed.

The new Aventador is available in 13 exterior colors, is estimated to return 10 mpg city and 15 mpg highway, and is priced at $387,000.


Value Writeup

The 2012 Aventador is the latest, greatest supercar offering from Lamborghini. It is the company's first new model in eight years and serves as a replacement for the Murcielago. The car is a tour de force of technology and internal combustion, and it ups the ante in the supercar field. Few other cars exist in the stratosphere of performance and exclusivity in which the Aventador lives. The McLaren MP4-12-C costs less, but it has four fewer cylinders and can't match the Aventador for performance. And while the Bugatti Veyron nearly doubles the power, it also quadruples the price. So looked at that way, the Aventador seems a downright performance bargain.

Summary
Lamborghini is recalling certain model year 2012 Aventador vehicles manufactured July 15, 2011, through April 20, 2012 for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." The affected vehicles may have headlights that can be aimed horizontally but not vertically.

Consequence
An incorrect headlamp aim could reduce the drivers visibility and possibly blind oncoming traffic. Either condition may increase the risk of crash.

Lamborghini will notify owners, and dealers will enable the vertical aiming and disable the horizontal aiming of the headlights, free of charge. Owners may contact Lamborghini at 1-866-681-6276.

Lamborghini's recall campaign number is LB834-R.09.12. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
