By Auto News Log • November 15th, 2010

Automobili Lamborghini is embarking on a highly innovative chapter in the company’s history with an all-new V12 power plant and a new, unique high performing seven speed transmission: The twelve-cylinder with 6.5 liters displacement, output of 525 kW (700 hp) and maximum torque of 690 Newton meters was developed with state-of-the-art technology from a white sheet of paper. The result is a synthesis of breathtaking performance, high-revving exhilaration, low weight and moderate gas emissions. The perfect complement is a completely new transmission concept for super sports cars: The “Lamborghini ISR” automated manual gearbox combines minimal shift times and everyday convenience with low weight and dimensions to guarantee the emotional gearshift that customers expect from a super sports car at the very top of the premier league. The new powertrain will enter production early 2011.

The legend of Lamborghini strongly relies on its extraordinary, unique V12 engines.”This new power unit is not only the crowning glory of our product lineup, it is also part of our enormous investment in the future of the Lamborghini brand,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “With this new V12, we are heralding a technological leap that encompasses all areas of the company and our future model range. With a unique package of innovations, Lamborghini will redefine the future of the super sports car. This 700 hp engine, together with an all-new concept gearbox, will be at the heart of the Murciélago successor next year.”
