Lamborghini Aventador rolling chassis – Click above for high-res image gallery

Assembling an exotic supercar like a Lamborghini is a painstaking process, making sure every last bit fits just right. Most of the time, we don't see that process in such minute detail, but Lamborghini has made sure we get the full experience with its latest supercar.

Dubbed "Aventador LP 700-4" by the press in anticipation of its launch, the long-awaited replacement for the Murciélago is now officially confirmed for debut at the fast-approaching Geneva Motor Show next week.

Along the way, Sant'Agata has shown us the engine and gearbox, the suspension and the monocoque frame, not to mention the myriad spy shots of camouflaged test mules romping around. And now Lamborghini is showing us the full rolling chassis – sans bodywork or interior (save for one seat) but with just about everything else fitted – which it unveiled at an Audi TechDay event. We'll have to wait another week to see the full monte, but for now you can peruse through what we've got so far in the galleries below.

      What a great tease! Showing enough to generate excitement and interest without revealing the complete design.

      Great way to keep up the buzz.

      Never seen a reveal one part at a time.

      It's not a real supercar until we see this same image, but with flames broiling the chassis from the inside after a light-rear impact.

      Is it just me or does the front and rear chassis look like a bunch of a tacked together parts from Home Depot lol

      Put an engine and a steering wheel in it, and I'd drive it like that.
        • 3 Years Ago
        whoops. i see that the engine is there. now just give me a way to steer.

      This is the best example of "adding lightness" I've ever seen. I'd personally take it as it is. It looks badass, even without a shell. Who needs all that heavy carbon fibre?

      WTF! I cant waiting to see you Aventador get out of the egg. When could I have a look at the commercial images?

      Sorry Chrysler, you are going to have to change your Jeep ad.
      Plastic CAN be forged!

      very cool. I think it was the '65 Geneva show that Lamborghini floored the world with its bare mid-engined chassis Muira, and we all know how well that turned out for the company, their most iconic car until the Countach, and still highly coveted.

      This is just incredibly sexy, for an automobile - you know, inasmuch as an automobile can be sexy.

      That looks quite simple. Guess I can build something similar in my backyard

        You should probably be in your back yard then...
        • 3 Years Ago
        I'm going to risk it and assume you aren't a troll...in which case, I should warn you that you have absolutely NO idea how much work and research are necessary to make a chassis that is simple on one hand but will also be as strong and stable as possible when countering all the different forces the car is subjected to, including a crash. This means the angle and length of every tube and beam has to be millimetrically accurate to balance the forces out AND the whole structure needs to wrap around an engine and the cabin. Ever wondered why, for example, the ENTIRE lineups of VW, Mercedes, Fiat or GM are based on several small modifications to two-three chassises?

        Let me check, I might have a sense of humor in store for you.

      From the chassis, to the suspension, to the transmission, this car has me all excited. Personally, 700hp is "enough", and I like how they are focusing on cutting edge composites to drop weight instead of just adding more power.
