Still Leaking: The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Profile Photos

Well, I'm not too surprised to see some more Lamborghini Aventador pictures. When the first scanned magazine picture leaked on Tuesday, we had more than a hunch that either more pictures from that magazine spread or a similar one were going to leak, or that Lamborghini was going to do an early reveal the way that Pagani did with the Huayra and Lamborghini itself did with the Sesto Elemento. Lamborghini hasn't come clean yet, but a few more pictures from the same Evo Croatia issue have leaked out. We now see the Aventador from the side and 3/4 profile in addition to the front.

Three new photos leaked altogether, originating on Jalopnik. One photo is a closer front-end shot that doesn't reveal much that Tuesday's shot didn't. But the profile photo and 3/4 shot definitely bring some new visual details to the table. The profile photo reveals a melding of bold curves and sharp angles inspired by the Sesto Elemento concept. In particular, the rear lip and angular air intakes on the front and sides remind me of the Sesto, while the flowing belt line yells traditional Lamborghini.

The Aventador LP700-4 will make its official debut next Tuesday...or any second now. In addition to brilliant looks that should inspire harmony and accord as opposed to the controversy of the Pagani Huayra, the Aventador will bring 691 horses and 509 lb-ft. of torque by way of 6.5-liter V12 engine. It will use a new, seven-speed, single-clutch automated manual transmission and a Haldex all-wheel-drive system. Lamborghini has managed to keep curb weight down to 3,472 lbs. with composite components like the carbon-reinforced polymer monocoque.

Performance-wise the Aventador LP700-4 promises to show that it's not just a pretty face: 0-to-62 mph in a blistering 2.9 seconds and 217 mph worth of all-out speed capability.
