After plenty of teaser shots and even some video, it’s not Lamborghini that is unveiling the new Aventador LP700-4 but a leaked image courtesy Evo Magazine Croatia.

Taking design inspiration from the Reventon, powering the successor to the Murcielago is a 6.5-liter V12 rated at roughly 690-hp. It will be 18 percent more powerful than the Murcielago, while also emitting 20 percent fewer emissions. As for the transmission, Lamborghini will make use of its new ISR 7-speed transmission – the first use of a 7-speed with a V12 in the industry. With five gear settings, (auto strada, auto sport, strada, sport and corsa) the innovative transmission will be able to deliver shift times of just 50 ms in Corsa – which is almost as quick as a Formula 1 car.

Weight is kept to a minimum thanks to a carbon fiber chassis and the LP700-4 will get a pushrod suspension setup, similar to those found on race cars.

As for the rest of the car, it will be more ergonomic than even the Gallardo, with space for larger drivers. The dash will feature a new TFT instrument cluster, meaning that it won’t have traditional physical gauges, but that all instrumentation will be displayed on a screen.

The Aventador is set to debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March.

Pricing of all the options that can be had on the new Aventador. Apparently matte colors and several different steering wheels will be a few of the many options.

This just in: Options on a Lamborghini are expensive. Ok, so it’s not breaking news, but admit it, you’re still curious just how much extra it costs to change the color of the brake calipers on a new Lamborghini Aventador.

To indulge your curiosity, a friend was kind enough to slip us a copy of the upcoming car’s option list. And for the record, the document doesn’t contain the word Aventador, so we still can’t confirm that is the official name.

Now then, the prices. If your slush fund is only fat enough to afford a base Aventador, you can have any color you want, so long as it’s black or yellow. Anything else will cost you extra. For example, solid colors (white) will run you and extra $1650, while metallic colors (blue, black and two shades of grey) will cost an extra $2200 and pearl finishes (yellow and two shades of orange) will go for $4100. If you love the look of matte paint (white, black, brown or yellow), you’ll be paying a whopping $14,000 over sticker to get it. You’re better off going with a custom “Out of Range” color, which’ll only cost $9100.

Assuming you’ve got the dough, you’ll probably want to specify your wheel and brake caliper colors so they don’t clash with the body color. Your car will come stock with silver wheels, but you can have them in “shiny black” or just $1820 extra. Same story on the brakes, which come standard in black but are available in three more colors for the low, low price of $1100. Heck, if the check clears, they’ll even repaint the black rear suspension springs yellow for the same price.

Then there’s the matter of the engine cover. If the boring old standard cover simply won’t do, you can get it in carbon fiber for $2500. For the full Italian exotic effect, though, you’ll need to throw down an extra $7550 for the transparent cover so everyone can see your big V-12.

And that’s just the exterior. Want a sound system or heated seats? $4200 each. Parking sensors and a rear-view camera? $4900 please. Homelink garage door opener? $560. Smoker package? $490. “Branding” package, which probably means badges and embroidery? That’ll be $840. Then there are six steering wheel options ranging from $700 to $1540 depending on your tastes in suede, smooth leather and perforated leather and your desire for a multifunction wheel.

Of course, none of that address the fact that the standard interior is monochrome. If you want to liven things up, it’ll cost you. Just adding contrast stitching will put another $840 on the tab. The “Sportive” interior, whatever that is, will require another $2250 and adding Alcantara to it adds $750 to that. If you’d rather have the equally-enigmatic “Elegante” interior, it’ll be $2250 as well, but the even more elegant (presumably) “Elegante Plus” package will run you $3500.

Add all the most expensive options together and you could conceivably pay $45,800 over the base price, or about the same as buying a new BMW 528i to be your daily driver while the Lambo is tucked away in the 10-car garage. We can’t say what your grand total would be as Lamborghini hasn’t announced the Aventador’s starting price yet, but if it’s anywhere near the Murcielago’s $323,160 base, your total will be somewhere around “if you have to ask…”

here's the official stuff

Described by Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelman as "a jump of two generations in terms of design and technology," the new Aventador LP700-4 has now officially been revealed as the successor to the famed Murcielago.

Rising from the level of an exotic to a true supercar, the LP makes 700-hp from a V12 engine, powering a machine built almost entirely of carbon fiber, while using a racecar-style pushrod suspension, the company's impressive AWD system, as well as a compact and emotional ISR single-clutch gearbox..

The monstrously large machine is now 6-inches longer than the car it replaces while being just fractions of an inch less wide. Yet for all its amazing attributes, the carbon fiber monocoque chassis is perhaps the most astounding, allowing the Aventador to weigh just under 3500 lbs in its dry weight form.

While the chassis is revolutionary, the design itself is somewhat evolutionary, a development of the fighter-jet looks we first saw with the Reventon. The Aventador takes cues from that car as well as from the Estoque sedan concept, and retains the scissor doors that Lambos have become famous for.

As mentioned, power comes from a 6.5-liter V12 engine, with a total of 700-hp on tap, as well as 509 lb-ft, and when combined with AWD propels the new Lambo flagship to 62-mph in a mere 2.9 seconds.
