New Lamborghini V12
Lambo is in the process of including a new V12 in its next generation of raging bull. The engine it replaces, originally designed by Bizzarini, has been in it’s basic form the V12 motor that has been in high-end Lambos for fifty years.
The new engine is set to debut in the replacement for the Murcielago which, rumour has it, will be named the
Aventador LP700-4. Does that mean this will pack 700 cavalli?
We’ve learnt to take random fan renderings with a serious pinch of salt – and we know though, that the new hardcore Gallardo spyder announced at the LA Show doesn’t get the new engine.
Whatever the car’s shell looks like, we think you’ll agree this power plant is a thing of true beauty.
Thanks go to the gods of mechanical power-lust that engines like this can still be installed in production cars.
The world would be a less interesting place without them.
