Fastest ever Lamborghini unveiled - Aventador LP700-4

This is going to be one of the dream cars around the world in the days to come that is for sure. It has been reported that Lamborghini has brought its fastest ever production model to the Geneva Motor Show, the Aventador LP700-4.

According to reports, the car which takes the mantle from the super car Murcielago, the Aventador takes its name from a certain brave bull which won the ‘Trofeo de la Pena La Modronera’ after fighting a humanoid at the Saragossa Arena in 1993.

According to reports, the car uses a 6.5 L, dry-sumped V-12 pumping out a breathtaking 700 hp and 690 Nm of torque, the light carbon-fiber 1,575 kg. Aventador takes just nifty 2.9 seconds for a 0-100 km/h run with a top speed of 350 km/h. A new ISR 7-speed, single-clutch, robotised manual transmission has been implemented, which actuates the shifting sleeves with ‘Independent Shifting Rods’, with three driving modes: a comfortable ‘Strada’, a faster ‘Sport’ and the liberal ‘Corsa’.

It was reported that this is also the first time a production car is using an F1-inspired pushrod suspension with aluminium double wishbones and carbon fiber ceramic brakes. With the CO2 emission figures standing at 398 g/km, the Aventador takes a 20 per cent drive from the Murcielago’s. Inside, the Aventador might intimidate most drivers with a cockpit-like TFT LCD screen and luxurious materials.

The auto magazines have stated that the price tag of the new rocket from Lamborghini begins at £201,900 with 13 paintwork choices, and upgrade options including a transparent engine cover, parking sensors, stereo upgrade, colored callipers for the brakes and black paint on the wheels. The first customers are expected to zoom around in their brand new Aventadors by summer 2011.

Angry Elephant Throws Car Into A Ditch...

An elderly Irishman John Somers took a friend for a relaxing holiday to the Pilansberg Game Reserve inJohannesburg to celebrate his 66th birthday, but it was one party he will never forget in his life. As the wildlife enthusiasts drove along a dusty road they found themselves in the path of a five-tonne bull elephant, who charged towards them.

At first the massive elephant, named Amarula, went trunk-to-trunk with the grey car, before resting his weight right down on top of it. The boisterous elephant then flipped the vehicle over into a ditch like a toy car as the terrified occupants hung on for dear life. Luckily the elephant eventually got bored and the pair escaped with only minor cuts and bruises.

It is believed the animal was pumped full of hormones as it went in search of the mate. The full sequence of bizarre events was captured by photographer Riaan van Wyk, who was watching from a safe distance.
