Another day, another tidbit on the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 or whatever it’s going to be named . . . all we know he’s called the Stig Murcielago replacement.
The picture above shows the Aventador LP700-4’s carbon fiber monocoque that is a “Single Shell” unit and by single Lamborghini means a coming together of many individual parts to function as “one”. The monocoque gets its inspirations from Formula One cars, just like the Aventador’s F1 styled pushrod suspension (funny, I didn’t realize Lamborghini competed in F1). The monocoque only weighs 324 pounds (147.5 kg) and is said to offer super rigidity and safety.
Making the carbon fiber monocoque was an extremely difficult process (I won’t bore you with the details) and therefore Lamborghini decided to do it in-house.
