Here is the press release:
New Delhi, November 3rd, 2011- Exclusive Motors Pvt. Ltd. the leaders in bringing the finest luxury and sports cars to India unveiled the much awaited Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 at their showroom in the capital today. With the Aventador, Lamborghini is taking a big step into the future â" and building on the glorious history of the brand with the next automotive legend.
"The Aventador" has brought a revolution that has been created to redefine sports cars it is not only a step forward, but two leaps ahead of our competitors. This truly Italian beauty is a result of very heavy and intricate carbon fiber research and development of technologies. As we rightly say at Lamborghini â" "We start where others stop"
With the launch of Aventador LP 700-4, Automobili Lamborghini has redefined the very pinnacle of the world super sports car market â" brutal power, outstanding lightweight engineering and phenomenal handling precision are combined with peerless design to deliver an unparalleled driving experience. The car that is named after Aventador, the bull that entered into battle in October 1993 at the Saragossa Arena, earning the "Trofeo de la PeÃ±a La MadroÃ±era" exhibits the same outstanding courage and performance. With the Aventador LP 700-4, the future of the super sports car is now part of the present.
The technology package of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is utterly unique. It is based on an innovative monocoque made from carbon-fiber that combines exceptional lightweight engineering with the highest levels of stiffness and safety. The new twelve-cylinder with 6.5 liters' displacement and 515 kW / 700 hp brings together the ultimate in high-revving pleasure with astonishing low-end torque. Thanks to a dry weight of only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 lb), which is extremely low for this class of vehicle, the weight-to-power ratio stands at only 2.25 kilograms per hp (4.96 lb/hp). Even the fantastic 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration figure of just 2.9 seconds and the top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph) do not fully describe the Aventador's extreme performance. And yet, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are down by around 20 percent compared with its predecessor, despite the considerable increase in power (+8%).
Speaking at the launch, Mr. Satya Bagla, Managing Director, Exclusive Motors Pvt. Ltd. said, "We are extremely excited as we have achieved yet another milestone with launch of Lamborghini Aventador in India. It's an exceptional package with a futuristic design, unique and innovative technologies and an overwhelming performance.

India is an emerging market for sports car which is evident from the successful Formula 1 race event. Aventador is a direct and consistent continuation of Lamborghini's brand values. Excellence of the Aventador LP 700-4 makes it unrivalled in the worldwide super sports car arena."
The Aventador is a result of an entirely new project, but simultaneously a direct and consistent continuation of Lamborghini's brand values. It is extreme in its design and its performance, uncompromising in its standards and technology, and unmistakably Italian in its style and perfection. Overall, the dynamics and technical excellence of the Aventador LP 700-4 makes it unrivalled in the worldwide super sports car arena.
The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is priced at Rs 3 cr 69 lakhs ex showroom and is available at Exclusive Motors Showroom, Samrat Hotel, New Delhi.
DETAILED FEATURES OF THE CAR:
A sculpture of extreme dynamics
For Lamborghini, design is always the beauty of aggressive power, the elegance of breathtaking dynamics. The designers in the Centro Stile Lamborghini have carefully developed this design language, an avant-garde work of art, an incredibly dynamic sculpture, from the sharply honed front end through the extremely low roofline to the distinctive rear diffuser.
Truly impressive proportions come from an overall length of 4,78 meters (188.19 in.) matched with an impressive width of 2,26 meters (88.98 in.) including the exterior mirrors, and further accentuated by an extremely low height of just 1.136 mm (44.72 in.). Doors of the carbon-fiber monocoque open upward â" a feature that was first introduced in the now legendary Countach and then used for the following V12 models like Diablo and Murcilago.
Exclusive and high-tech interior
The Aventador's spacious interior combines the fine exclusivity of premium materials and perfect Italian craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology and generous equipment.
The new Lamborghini flagship has a full monocoque, an entire occupant cell, with tub and roof and is one single physical component. This ensures extreme rigidity and outstanding driving precision, as well as an extremely high level of passive safety for the driver and passenger.
Maximum revs, amazing sound
For the Aventador LP 700-4, Lamborghini's R&D Department has developed a completely new high-performance power unit â" an extremely powerful and high-revving, but very compact power unit. A V12 with 515 kW (700 hp) at 8,250 rpm sets a whole new benchmark, even in the world of super sports cars.
Innovative transmission for maximum performance
Engineers at Lamborghini have created the perfect mate for the new twelve-cylinder engine with the highly innovative ISR (Independent Shifting Rods) transmission. Compared with a dual-clutch transmission, not only is the ISR gearbox much lighter, it also has smaller dimensions than a conventional manual unit â" both key elements in the field of lightweight engineering for super sports cars.
Refined and safe with all-wheel drive
The driver of the Aventador LP 700-4 can depend fully on its permanent all-wheel drive â" indicated by the 4 in the model designation. The Drive Select Mode System enables the driver to choose vehicle characteristics (engine, transmission, differential, steering and dynamic control) from three settings â" Strada (road), Sport and Corsa (track) â" to suit his individual preferences.
The pushrod spring and damper concept has been inspired by Formula 1 and tuned perfectly to meet the needs of a high-performance road-going vehicle.
Extensive assistance and safety systems
The driver is assisted by the latest electronic systems such as the incredibly sporty, adjustable ESP system. When it comes to passive safety, front, head-thorax and knee airbags play their part alongside the extremely stiff carbon-fibre cell.
A rich and wide-ranging individualization program
A Lamborghini should always fit perfectly with the style and preferences of its owner. There is a selection of 13 production paint colours to choose from. A choice of two-tone interiors are offered with the "Sportivo" and "Elegante" versions, while a premium audio system and reversing camera are among the many technology options. And of course, the "Ad Personam" individualization program knows no limits when it comes to colours and mater.
