Lamborghini has revealed the new Lamborghini Aventador will feature a monocoque platform made entirely of carbon fibre, which is both very light in weight and very strong - overall weight of the single shell is just 147.5kg. Lamborghini says the new single shell was created completely in-house using Lamborghini's patented carbon fibre formation technology.
This means the new supercar will not only be as light as possible, but it will also be extremely rigid. During testing procedures of the new chassis, Lamborghini found that the carbon monocoque could withstand up to 35,000Nm per degree of rotational force. Translated onto the driver, it means the new car will be very precise on the road offering super-accurate steering and chassis response.
The suspension, including the new push rod rear suspension layout, will also be able absorb and communicate road characteristics more efficiently thanks to the rigid new design, leaving, what is expected to be, one tight and taught package.
Lamborghini has officially announced the new Lamborghini Aventador will be unveiled in full at the Geneva Motor Show taking place from March 1 in just a few week's time.
