The doors have yet to swing open at the Geneva Motor Show
, but that small detail doesn't seem to be stemming the tide of embargo-smashing images and details of the eagerly anticipated new cars
and trucks contained inside, including what may be the first picture of Lamborghini's latest piece of rolling artwork, the Murciélago LP 670-4 SV
. Specifications for the new raging bull are still tough to come by, but a quick dissection of the car's name reveals a peak output of 670 horsepower and all-wheel drive.
The SV (Super Velocé, or Super Fast for us non-Italian speaking types) part is aided along by a weight reduction of 100 kg (220 lbs) through the extensive use of carbon fiber and magnesium. If early reports are correct, we can expect the run to 60 to take just over 3 seconds and a top speed of 342 km/h (212 mph). Super Velocé indeed. Stay tuned for live shots just as soon as those doors to the Geneva PalExpo center are officially unlocked.
