After months of build-up Lamborghini finally revealed its replacement for the Murcielago last night, and the 217mph Aventador LP700-4 certainly lived up to the hype.
Named, fittingly, after a Spanish fighting bull, the Italian hypercar gets an all-new V12 engine mated to a seven-speed robotised manual, a carbon fibre tub and F1-style pushrod suspension.
That much we already knew, but along with the Aventador's unveiling came all the facts and figures - and they make for eye-opening reading.
Thanks in part to that carbon fibre tub - which weighs just 147.5kg - the new Lamborghini tips the scales at just 1575kg, despite also including four-wheel-drive.
The low kerbweight, and the 691bhp produced by the dry-sumped twelve-cylinder engine, means the Aventador will crack 62mph in just 2.9 seconds.
The power is delivered through a transmission which Lamborghini has dubbed ISR thanks to its use of Independent Shifting Rods which offer much quicker gear shifts than the Murcielago's gearbox despite still only using a single clutch.
So proud is the manufacturer of its achievements with the new car that Stephan Winkelmann described it 'a jump of two generations in terms of design and technology'.
