We’ve seen the spy shots, read up on all the details about its new 700 horsepower V-12 powerplant and even obtained leaked copies of its ordering guide and specs list, now, we have news that Lamborghini’s replacement for the Murcielago supercar is selling like hot cakes.

The new car, whose full title is expected to be Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, is scheduled to make its world debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in March but in the lead up to its arrival Lamborghini will be showing it off to select groups of customers all around the world.

One of the first markets the car was reportedly shown to was Singapore, and apparently it was well worth the effort. According to The Business Times, more than 50 locals have signed up for one, each costing around $1.14 million in Singapore.  

Interestingly, this figure is higher than the total sales of Lamborghini’s entire model range in Singapore this year.

Despite being a tiny island, Singapore has a strong fondness for exotica, with this year alone a total of 49 Murcielago and Gallardo variants, including no less than four Reventons, calling it home. There’s also been 59 Ferraris, 32 Aston Martins and 47 Bentleys sold there over the same period.    

With the new LP 700-4 proving to be such a hot-seller in Asia, we wonder how many units Lamborghini will manage to move in the Middle East, a region that traditionally has bought such cars in relatively high numbers.
