The latest model to carry the Raging Bull badge named the Aventador LP700-4 is powered by a fire spitting 6.5-litre V12 good for 691 Hp. The symphony making engine allows the Murciélago replacement to reach the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark in less than 3 seconds and have a top speed of 349 km/h (217 mph). This significant increase in performance has been achieved thanks to the intensive wheight reduction that allowed the car to have a dry weight of just 1574 Kg (3,472 lbs) compared to the Murcièlago's 1665 Kg (3,671 lbs). Weight distribution is 43 percent front and 57 rear, which means it's also good at going sideways.

The Aventador's styling is largely inspired by the Sesto Elemento and the Estoque concept cars. You can contemplate the Italian beauty in the gallery below before you watch it going sideways in the hands of Autocar's driver Steve Sutcliffe in the video after the jump.
