Lamborghini has announced its Australian pricing for the Aventador LP700-4, and it's cheaper than the outgoing Murcielago SV.

Speaking with CarAdvice today, Lamborghini spokesperson Cathy Palfreyman confirmed that the Aventador would be priced at $789,000 including GST and LCT, but plus on-road costs.

That's a fair whack cheaper than the current $889,000 for the Murcielago LP640-SV, mostly due to the strong Aussie dollar.

Ms Palfreyman also stated that due to its left-hand-drive configuration, "at this stage it is unlikely the Sesto Elemento will be seen in Australia," something we all expected.

CarAdvice will be attending the Asia-Pacific launch of the Aventador in a few months time, so be sure to watch out for our full review on road and on track.
