'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.

      When my husband had a turn with the 2012 Mazda 5, it arrived covered in duct tape. The dealership thought it looked so awful, they removed it. We took pictures, but cannot post them.

      ... this thing has to be the angriest and meanest looking Lamborghini ever.

      MY. GOD.

      These are the first pics I have seen of the alleged new body style... and it is breathtaking. Even with all of that disgusting tape.

      Im going to go out already and say it, this thing is gonna be one of the sexiest Lambos ever. The proportions, the stance, the shape, everything is perfect... Looks like it spawned from hell.

      The car is sure low but take a look at the Wheel gap... What u guys think? Maybe it is about more than 3 finger wide??

      I want it, I will take it just like that.

      I see hints of Halloween underneath the vinyl....

      wow! looks like a reventon from the front and for some reason, reminds of a gallardo from the side with a huge air vent! 0.o

      Ten bucks says those side vents are responsible for more than a few missing pets.
