LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR ROLLING CHASSIS
Lambo has revealed the first image of the Lamborghini Aventador rolling chassis, ahead of the Murcielago replacement’s debut at the Geneva auto show at the beginning of March, 2011. Unfortunately, the Lamborghini Aventador rolling chassis image was not accompanied by any additional details. However, they did release an image of something that seems to be a material used of the interior of the supercar.
Although Lambo continues to call it the V12, the vast majority of sources believe the Lamborghini Aventador will be the chosen name for Murcielago’s replacement. Indeed, the Lamborghini Aventador will be powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine that will send 700 hp and 690 Nm of torque to all four wheels, through a permanent AWD system.

The BMW i3 will have an electric powertrain, and will be manufactured at the company’s Leipzig plant. The BMW i8 is based on the Vision EfficientDynamics concept study and will be a plug-in hybrid drive vehicle. The German car maker say the BMW i8 will offer both high-performance and low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
