The Lamborghini LP560-4 debuts at the 78th 2008 Geneva International Motor Show.
The mid-mounted 5.2L V12 is the focus of the update. The new engine features FSI direct-injection technology, a 12.5:1 compression ratio and develops 552hp and 398lb-ft of torque, 32hp and 23lb-ft more than the current 5.0L mill.
Engineers will be utilizing some of the technologies developed for the powertrain in the R8 and upcoming RS4, including significant changes to the gearbox and permanent all-wheel-drive system. The 0-100km/h sprint takes a mere 3.7s, 0-100km/h flashes by in 11.8s and top speed cranks the speedo over to 325km/h. Even the Murcielago is looking over its shoulder. Despite all this, fuel efficiency is better than you might think: 14L/100km (16.8mpg US) on the combined cycle.
The LP550 will be available with both a manual or optional six-speed e-gear sequential transmission, both of which have been revised to send more power and torque to a lighter and more efficient 4WD Viscous Traction system. Chassis stiffness and brake components have also been improved. Shod with 235/35 rubber up front and 295/30 out back, with all four corners on 193 rims, you'll have to exercise your right foot to break the tires loose, but with the power available, you won't break a sweat.
Inside you'll find such comforts as a multimedia system with USB connection, Bluetooth compatibility and a TV system. Of course, like all Lamborghinis, the LP560-4 can be customized to suit your exact needs.
