Automobili Lamborghini is embarking on a highly innovative chapter in the company’s history with an all new V-12 power plant and a new, unique high performing transmission- the twelve cylinder with 6,5 liter displacement, output of 515kW (700 hp) and maximum torque of 690Nm was developed with state-of-the-art technology from a clean sheet of paper.  The result is a synthesis of breathtaking performance, high-revving exhilaration, low weight and moderate gas emissions. The perfect complement is a completely new transmission concept for super sports cars: the “ Lamborghini ISR “ automated manual gearbox combines minimal shift times and everyday  usability with low weight and dimensions to guarantee that emotional sensation from gearshifts, which customers expect from a super sports car at the very top of the premier league.
The new power train entered production beginning 2011.
This 700hp engine, together with the all-new concept gearbox, is the heart of the new Aventadòr.
