A new teaser for the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 shows the new monocoque chassis.
The Murcielago’s successor will get a carbon fibre monocoque ‘single-shell’, much as you find on F1 cars. It weighs just 147.5kg, and offers, claims Lamborghini, superior safety and high torsional rigidity.
There is a complicated procedure to produce this carbon-fibre tub, involving resin transfer moulding, pre-injecting carbon fibre mats with liquid resin, braiding and inserting epoxy foam components. Because of its complexity, the tub is built in-house, in Lambo’s special kitchen.
