Don't be foolish, Lamborghini. You should have known that a couple of stock "spy" shots of the Aventador LP700-4 wouldn't be enough for us to call off the hounds. Our crack team of camera-wielding warriors managed to lay their lenses on the upcoming Murciélago replacement while the vehicle was undergoing extreme weather testing near the Arctic Circle. If you can look through the snow and the trippy tornado camouflage, you just might notice a face that's even more sinister than that of the old king of the Lamborghini hill. We're guessing that the production version of the vehicle will make use of an even more angular front fascia and rear valance than what we're used to seeing from the already trapezoid-happy supercars.
Rumor has it that we can expect a 0-60 mph time of around three seconds thanks to a 704-horsepower V12 engine with 509 pound-feet of torque on hand. The engine is supposedly mated to an electrohydraulically-actuated transmission that can swap cogs in around 50 milliseconds. Lamborghini hasn't released too many details on the tech behind the transmission just yet, but from the sound of things, it's a new level of quick.
