In May we had the tremendous honor of attending the dealer launch for a very significant car. For Lamborghini a new model is effectively a 10 year business plan. The Murcielago made its debut in 2001 and played its swansong last year in 2010. It was an unbelievable car and is certain to retain a legendary status among hypercars.
The sun has set on that chapter for Lamborghini, though and the future is here. The 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has been unveiled and these are our pictures and experiences from attending the dealer launch in Rome, Italy.
