Lamborghini Aventador pushrod suspension - Click above for high-res image gallery

While attending the 2011 Detroit Auto Show, we took a moment to stop by the Lamborghini display to have a word with Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann and head of R&D Maurizio Reggiani. At that time, we learned the Lamborghini 834, the Murciélago replacement otherwise known as the Aventador (probably), would have a new suspension system.

Lamborghini revealed that its next supercar would have a pushrod suspension with horizontal dampers - the first time such a system will appear on a production car, according to the automaker. The setup will keep the wheel in perfect alignment throughout the range of suspension travel and a high-end set of Ohlins shocks should keep the tire on the pavement.

Now, Lamborghini has release the first set of images showing off its new suspenders, along with a press release (find it after the break) with a slew of technical details explaining why the new design is superior to others. See for yourself in the image gallery below, and hold tight until the official unveiling of Lambo's next great supercar at the Geneva Motor Show.
