Three of the hottest Italian supercar makers--Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani--all have something new to show at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, which starts on March 1. And thanks to some leaked video, we now have the best look yet at two of those new cars.
The videos, which both leaked this week, feature the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 and the Ferrari FF, respectively, and give us better looks than the companies themselves seemed ready to show.
The Lamborghini video is the longer of the two and appears to be official Lambo footage. It's two exhilarating minutes of watching the new Lambo flagship jet around the curvy, snow-drenched countryside; listening to the throaty voice of the all-new 6.5-liter V12; and even getting inside the cockpit for a closer look at the interior. In other words, it's two minutes of auto-bliss.
The Ferrari video, on the other hand, is about as unofficial as it gets. Ferrari was out and about in some snowy mountains testing the FF concept, a concept that represents the Prancing Horse's first four-wheel drive, when some dog sledders came up on the all-new supercar and started filming the footage. I wouldn't have thought dog sledders carry video cameras, but I'm sure glad they do. The 30 seconds of video provides a better look at the red hatchback than Ferrari has provided with official photos and teaser videos.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 will replace the Murcielago as the most powerful, most expensive car in the Lamborghini family. It features an all-new 6.5-liter V12 engine, a new single-clutch automated manual transmission and a carbon fiber reinforced polymer chassis. The car should be good for a 2.9-second 0-to-62 mph and a 217 mph top speed.
Ferrari's FF is slightly tamer, but it's also designed to carry four rather than two. The 2 + 2 will replace the 612 Scaglietti and will employ a 651-hp 6.3-liter V12 engine good for a 3.7-second 0-to-62 mph and a 208 mph top speed.
