Killer Leak: Two-Minute Clip Of Lambo Aventador LP700-4

Lamborghini may really be dragging its heels in teasing the Aventador LP700-4 leading up to Geneva, but luckily the leaky auto-media infrastructure is moving a little quicker. While the Raging Bull has been content to present the Aventador one piece at a time over months upon months, photos, and videos have been leaking like a condemned building, giving us a much better look at the new top dog in Sant'Agata Bolognese.

The latest video, which was first leaked on Dutch website Autogespot.com, comes at a time when official Lamborghini media releases left us staring at the light, but not particularly visually stunning, Aventador chassis. It's two minutes worth of fast action with some of the best looks at both the exterior and interior of the Aventador that we've seen. Unfortunately, that headache-inducing squiggly camo is still all over the body, but it's still an exciting look of the 700-hp supercar speeding through a snow-covered Italian countryside.

The video appears to be an official teaser video, but it's not clear exactly how or why it leaked. Then again, I guess it doesn't really matter, just watch and enjoy.

For those who just crawled out of a cryogenic chamber, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, as it is almost exclusively referred to nowadays, is the Murcielago replacement, the future flagship of Lamborghini. It is driven by an all-new 6.5-liter V12 engine worth 691 horses and 509 lb-ft. The car features a new, seven-speed, single clutch automated manual transmission and will not be offered with a full manual.

Lamborghini keeps the weight of the Aventador well under 3,500 lbs. with a carbon-reinforced polymer chassis.

The Aventador should hit 62 mph in under three seconds and top out around 217 mph.

That's what we know. The rest will be coming on March 1, the first day of the Geneva Motor Show, or possibly a little sooner if all these leaks are any indication. Until then, enjoy the newly leaked video.
