Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 "spy shot" - Click above for high-res image

Typically, when an automaker is preparing to unveil a new car, we get a look at the styling and then the technical details. But Lamborghini is used to doing things backwards. It was, after all, one of the first automakers to build a mid-engine sportscar, and was also the one that got its start reverse-engineering Ferraris with tractor parts. And the backwards tradition continues with the highly anticipated Murciélago successor.

Though Sant'Agata has been gradually releasing details of the supercar's mechanicals - including the pushrod suspension, 6.5-liter V12 and ISR transmission - glimpses at the car's design have been few and far between. This swirly job "spy shot", ostensibly leaked from the factory, has been circulating the internet like a viral video, and gives us one of our best looks yet at the car's shape.

Though the camouflage does a good job of breaking up the body's lines, you can still discern a healthy dose of Reventón-like fighter jet-inspired design cues in the beast expected to be called the Aventador LP700-4. With less than a month to go before it makes its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, there'll undoubtedly be more to come soon, so watch this space.
