The Aventador has already made various international debuts around the world, including the car's first unveiling at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in March. The Melbourne show will be the first chance for the Australian public to get up close to the exotic new supercar.

Andrew Smith, managing director of Lamborghini Melbourne, said,

"The Aventador looks amazing in photographs, but this is nothing to seeing it in person. I’m sure the visitors to the Australian International Motor Show are going to love it."

Meanwhile, the Australian International Motor Show event director Russ Tyrie recently spoke about what the unveiling means to motor show enthusiasts.

"There is no greater drawcard for a motor show than a spectacular, brand new, never-seen-in-Australia super sports car. To have such an important and impressive supercar unveiled locally so soon after its global unveiling is very exciting for the Australian International Motor Show."

Highlights of the car include a carbon fibre monocoque chassis, a 6.5-litre V12 engine developing 515kW of power and 690Nm of torque, acceleration from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds, and a new seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod dual-synchronise transmission.

The Australian International Motor Show will commence at 6pm on Friday July 1 and run through until July 10. We look forward to providing you with all the coverage.
