Asian markets are proving increasingly vital for exotic automakers like Lamborghini, but the latest reports in from the Far East show an unprecedented enthusiasm for Sant'Agata's newest model before it's even made its debut.

According to reports, more than 50 examples of the tentatively-dubbed Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 – whose specs were just recently leaked in advance of its anticipated debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March – have been ordered in Singapore alone. Potential customers in the Southeast Asian republic, which just relaunched its own Formula One grand prix a few years ago, received an advance preview of the highly-anticipated new supercar before it went on tour to Hong Kong, mainland China and Japan.

The LP700-4 reportedly costs SGD $1.5 million (or about $1.14 million) in Singapore, where the 50+ advance orders for the new model already eclipse annual sales figures for Lamborghinis, to say nothing of Aston Martin and Bentley, with Ferrari's sales figures squarely within sight. Thanks for the tip, Zen L!
