UPDATE: Ordering guide removed at the request of Lamborghini.

We've heard plenty of speculation about Lamborghini's upcoming Murciélago replacement, the LP700-4, and now a leaked dealer order guide gives us a glimpse of exactly what we can expect from the new flagship Raging Bull.

The LP700-4 (or Aventador, or Jota, as it's been known) is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 with 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque on tap, routed to the ground via all-wheel drive. Lamborghini's new seven-speed independent shifting rod (ISR, read about it here) transmission is fitted to the new supercar, and the automaker is claiming super-quick shift times of just 50 milliseconds. That, combined with a dry weight of only 3,472 pounds, means that the LP700-4 will sprint to 62 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds. That, friends, is fast.

In the leaked dealer order guide, which you can see for yourself in our high-res image gallery, Lamborghini details out the whole host of standard and optional equipment for the new LP700-4. New colors like Grigio Estoque and Arancio Argos are available for the exterior, and many different color choices can be had for the Sportivo interior, with or without Alcantara. Of course, high-tech goodies like sat-nav, iPod and USB connectivity and Bluetooth are standard fare, not to mention a giant heaping of street cred.

      I think McLaren and Zonda have a new stable mate. The LP700-4 is already up to 62 mph in as much time as it takes to say: "That, friends, is fast." I wonder what Ferrari has up their sleeves....I'm not so sure the new 458 Challenge is claiming a sub 3.0 sec 0-62.

      But shouldn't this car be called the LP690-4 ?



        • 4 Years Ago
        Well, given the spec sheet, I doubt the Challenge could match 2.9 second run, however, that's not really the focus of the 458. The Challenge would make the LP700 look silly around some twisties.
        • 4 Years Ago

        I agree wholeheartedly !

        Twisty course = advantage 458 Challenge.

        Lotsa straights = advantage LP700-4

        But what car would have the lower time @ Nordschleife ?
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's the difference between PS (pk, hk, hv, LE, k/ks, KS, KM, CP, CV, Ch) and HP.

        PS, or metric horsepower, is roughly 98.6% of what the english speaking world uses, the mechanical horsepower (HP), and it's mainly a European thing. It's known by many names in different european countries and all translate to horsepower, which makes it a bit confusing for english speakers.

      it is was electric it wouldn't have to be so slow..
      and could be much cheaper too
      • 4 Years Ago
      WOW! Under 3 seconds.... I remember when it was a massively big deal for a car to do it under 5 seconds but now under 3?!?!?! That's like super bike territory! Ok, so in another 10 to 15 years, I'm now expecting cars to be able to do it in under 2 seconds and in an additional 10 to 15 years after that I'm expecting in under 1 second:)

      Fast!

      The Nissan GTR's ability to post acceleration figures which humble even the Murcielago is amazing.. To add insult to injury, a $30K upgrade to a stock Nissan GTR can take the car to such speeds that it can easily outpace even a Veyron.. there are even videos showing the GTR handily beating the Kawasaki ZX14RR and the Suzuki Hayabusa.

      To think that these performance figures are being posted by a car with 4 seats is even more astonishing.

      So now the European sports car majors have to content themselves by harping on vague notions such as lineage, history, class, soul etc.. since they have been handily beaten on the performance front. Now suddenly the 0-60 figures are no longer important. The hypocrisy is interesting to behold.

      Why is it called the LP-700 if it only has 690hp?
      • 4 Years Ago
      World domination by the Volkswagen Group begins: Ferrari, it will not be too long before you are under the same giant tent that now includes Porsche, Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Audi.

      The new 911 Turbo and GTR do 0-60 in 2.9 as well, I'm not sure this is a spec that I would choose to brag about.
        • 4 Years Ago
        2011 GTR, 2010 ZR1, 911

        Here's the link

        You're right. The 2011 GTR does 0-62 in ~3.0 seconds. Not bad for a car
        • 4 Years Ago
        Mind you the link from road and track tested the 2011 GTR not the 2012 GTR so it would be interesting to see how well it does.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Same with the 2011 GT-R
        • 4 Years Ago
        True, however as we have seen on multiple videos, the GTR gets smoked once the cars it is going against surpass 60mph. I believe Motortrend has a video on the GTR racing a porsche, ZR1 and a 599. The car finishes last place.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Um...I think it is totally appropriate for Lamborghini to brag about their 0-60. 2.9 seconds is stupid fast, regardless if other cars on the road can accomplish the same feat. Lets not forget that while the 911 Turbo S and GTR may be cross-shopped, the LP700 is above and beyond that league. The guys who are looking at this car don't really give a crap that the Turbo S or a GTR can accelerate at the same pace, because at the end of the day, they still have the Lambo. It's a different game altogether. I totally respect the Turbo S and GTR, but if someone was to offer me an LP700 vs a GTR (even if it had mods to make it faster than the Lambo)...I'd take the LP everytime.

        That being said, this new transmission technology sounds intriguing, can't wait to see how it performs in production spec.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Then you could argue that the GTR is the least expensive out of the bunch, and I could argue that the GTR with $20k in mods would blow the doors off the other cars, but I won't.
        • 4 Years Ago
        True, however we are talking 0-60.
        • 4 Years Ago
        less than $100k

      when i was in highschool, the typical 'desired' car was a 302 mustang. the dream cars were 911 turbo, 959 (yeah right!), and the lt5 vettes.
      The 911 turbo back then went to 60 in 4 secs, 400 hp and awd was what you needed. now we have multiple cars that break 60 under 3 seconds, amazing.
      sure a top fuel dragster has gone about 1000 feet in that time, but they don't have bluetooth!

      i have been a lambo fan since i saw my 1st countach, another amazing machine from the tractor factory.

      not sure if i missed any
      • 4 Years Ago
      it is 0-62 not 0-60 as some already stated, 0-60 should be around 2.6/2.7.
      The stock 997 Turbo IS (proven by car and driver) as fast, the Nissan CLAIMS to be that fast.
      Those 700HP are more important when it comes to higher speeds and the V-max.
      That´s why a GT2(RS) for example kills a 997TT over 100mph.
