The Aventador replaces the Lamborghini Murcielago as the car’s flagship model and is fitted with a 6.5-litre V12 engine developing 691bhp.

Lamborghini claims the Aventador will be able to accelerate from 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and be capable of a top speed of 217mph – making it one of the quickest ever cars.

Power is channelled to all four wheels through a seven-speed gearbox which can shift up or down in an incredible 50 milliseconds.

As with all Lamborghini’s this car is named after a bull.

Aventador was the name of a bull that entered into battle in October 1993 at the Saragossa Arena, earning the “Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera” for its outstanding courage.
