Lamborghini Aventador Is Leaked to the World

Car companies really need to learn a little more quickly. Sure, I understand that they want to build anticipation as much as possible. But if they don't want their big reveals to be scooped by big leaks, they need to start moving faster in the fast-paced, connected world of today. Otherwise, every major official reveal is bound to take a back seat to a major leak-reveal.

Like Pagani before it, Lamborghini was in the midst of a slow teaser campaign, revealing the Aventador LP700-4 piece by tantalizing piece—like a Raging Bull version of a burlesque dancer. But instead of focusing on new, official pictures of the Aventador's chassis (snooze), media folks are free to focus on something far more engaging: the first picture of a fully uncovered Aventador LP700-4.

Like the Pagani Huayra leak that essentially forced Pagani into an early reveal, the Aventador leak comes by way of a scanned magazine. As World Car Fans points out, the lead time required in the print industry pretty much guarantees that pictures of cars are published in magazines before the cars have been revealed to the public. And all it takes is one determined employee—a disgruntled intern sick of topping off coffees, perhaps—to sneak out of print room, scan the photo, and email it to any of the dozens of auto blogs that publish by the second rather than the month. In this case, the leaky magazine was Evo Croatia.

The picture isn't the perfect 3/4 profile shot, and there's only one of them (so far), but it's definitely the best look at the Aventador yet. The first thing it shows is that the Aventador LP700-4 looks infinitely better in deep-red than it does in squiggly camo. The picture shows the move toward five-sided headlights—kind of stretched-out hexagons—from the Murcielago's four-sided lamps. Lamborghini's more angular design language demonstrated in the Reventon, and then in the Sesto Elemento concept, is also injected in the Aventador, seen most in the sharp nose and front fascia angles.

It looks as though the Aventador is as beautiful inside as it is out; the body color and black interior looks absolutely stunning from what we can see through the windshield.

We won't bore loyal readers with the Lambo's specs (you can probably recite those in your sleep by now), but if you're unfamiliar with them, check out our last Aventador post. After this leak, we're guessing it's a matter of days (hours, maybe) before Lambo does an official unveil. If not, maybe we'll at least get another scanned magazine photo or two before the world debut at next week's Geneva Motor Show.
