Murcielago successor confirmed for Geneva Show and gets F1 suspension

The much-awaited successor to the Lamborghini Murcielago, the rumored Aventador, will be unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in early March. In addition, Lamborghini has also revealed details on the suspension.
The Murcielago's replacement will come with an F1-inspired pushrod spring and damper concept, tuned to meet the needs of a high-performance road-going vehicle. Specifically, Lamborghini said that instead of linking to the wheel mounts, the spring/damper elements are connected to the body shell structure in a transverse position. Because of this setup, wheel control and damper are separate units, improving handling and the reaction of the springs/dampers. This allowed engineers to use springs which are less stiff, thereby increasing comfort.


Last but not least, the shock absorbers are equipped with a hydraulic lifting system, capable of raising the front end of the car by 4 centimeters at the push of a button, allowing small obstacles to be negotiated without causing damage to the front bumper.All suspension parts are made from a forged aluminum alloy.

The hydraulic steering system comes with three different servotronic settings, ranging from the hardcore “corsa” racetrack mode to less demanding setups. Stay tuned for more details on the new Lamborghini as March draws near.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Ya...Lambo likes to come out with such names. "Murcielago" is hard to pronounce too.
