Lamborghini has unveiled the carbon fiber chassis for its upcoming Aventador replacement and it uses more of the composite than ever before. Inspired by the light-but-strong world of aeronautics, the car is currently codenamed LB744 and is underpinned by what ulasan film Lambo refers to as the ‘monofuselage’ giving it more strength with less weight.
“Aeronautics is the science or art involved with the study, design, and manufacturing of air flight–capable machines, and the techniques of operating aircraft and rockets within the atmosphere.”
Rockets, you say?
Evolution From Aventador
One function of the aforementioned increase in strength is better torsional stiffness or less twist/flex in the chassis helping the LB744 put down the power from its hybridized V12 effectively. Forged composites are used for the front subframe and crash structure of the new car, marking a 20% weight reduction over the Aventador’s aluminum frontal structures with double the energy absorption abilities.

The monofuselage is about 25% stiffer torsion-wise than the Aventador chassis and the whole show is around 10% lighter. This should all make for better driving dynamics plus increased efficiency, if indeed such a thing matters to the V12 supercar buyer.
