Lamborghini Aventador spy shot

'Tis the dawn of a new digital age, friends. A new spy shot of what is very likely to be called the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has been spotted on the world's most ubiquitous social networking site: Facebook. It seems the pic was snapped and uploaded to the web by a member of the Lamborghini Club of Los Angeles.

Although mostly obscured by what looks to be some sort of electrical tape (or vinyl wrap, or something...), we still get a clear look at the basic wedge-like shape of Lambo's next supercar. The family resemblance to the Miura, Countach, Diablo and Murcielago is clear, with more than a little Reventon-esque flair thrown in for good measure. Not a bad history to draw from, eh?

With its new clean-sheet 6.5-liter V12 expected to punch out 700 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque, the Aventador ought to have plenty of brawn to match the racy looks of its carbon fiber shell. We look forward to finding out for sure...

*Update: Turns out this isn't really a spy shot at all, but a picture taken while the car was being given the initial once-over by some our our journalist friends.
