Lamborghini LP 700-4 Confirmed For Geneva Debut

Mike Stevens | Jan 25, 2011

Drumming up anticipation for its upcoming Murcielago successor, the LP 700-4 (reportedly dubbed Aventador), Lamborghini has confirmed a Geneva Motor Show debut for the new supercar.

The brand of the Raging Bull has also revealed new images and details that highlight the LP 700-4's unique suspension system.

Using an F1-inspired pushrod spring and damper arrangement, Lamborghini says the new system transversely connects the spring and damper components to the body shell structure instead of the wheel mounts.

Located under the windscreen up front and close to the engine in the rear (pictured above), the pushrods and relay levers and rockers transmit forces from the wheel mounts to the spring and damper elements.

Lamborghini says this arrangement offers more responsive and easier to manage handling, while the rigid connection to the chassis equals a sharp and spontaneous reaction to the springs and dampers.

The entire suspension system is made from forged aluminium alloy, including the upper and lower control arms, the wheel mounts and the relay levers.

This latest haul of technical information follows the unveiling in November of Lamborghini's new V12 engine, producing 525kW and 690Nm of torque.
