Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Spy Photos - Click above for high-res image gallery

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.

      The stealth fighter look is so 200X.

      Looks like this is taking a lot more styling cues from the Reventon than I expected.

      The shape looks awkward. Dare I say it's too low, wide, and long? Hopefully the camo is making it appear so.

        Low, wide and long?

        Well, that's what a supercar is supposed to be. Low = better aerodynamics and center of gravity, wide = bigger tires for better traction, long = bigger engine for more POWEEEEEEEER!

        Also, she said that "nothing can't be too low, wide and long".

        So hot. I'd love that car WITH the camo, the proportions are just perfect. I'd drive that car with flowers and hello kitty stickers on it, it's so hot.

      The rear quarters look too much like a testarossa. But the rear fascia looks like the estoque concept which hopefully means a definite future for that gorgeous sedan

      this camo looks great in winter night pictures.

      Seems like it is going to have a digital speedometer (pic 4)

      Hoping that this thing looks awesome when the camo comes off and it doesn't look too much like a murcielago/gallardo/reventon lovechild.

      Bertone did most of the Lamborghini's in the early days and this included the Mirua.

      It would be a let down if they kept the Murciélago's style of headlights, Ferrari would have one up against them in the styling department.

      The rear looks promising though...will probably be something like the Sesto Elemento

      Wow I didn't know Lamborghini came in an elk hunter edition! Sweet!
