If you think the ordinary Aventador is hot, the SV version will pierce your eyes from a hundred miles away.
The new aerodynamic equipment boosts total downforce to between 182kg and 218kg, up from 74kg on the original Aventador, but the front has gotten the most attention because it’s crucial to the vehicle’s aerodynamic balance.
Longer and deeper spoilers and splitters, as well as a massive rear wing and reworked front nose, are sure to turn heads
Lamborghini’s time-tested Superveloce includes body lightening, chassis and suspension upgrading as well as engine tuning to the max.
The price has also been “adjusted” upwards.
Getting large amounts of rear downforce is a no-brainer, but establishing a front-to-rear balance without a matching spoiler over the front bonnet is tricky, also steering stability and turn-in behavior are improved by increased front downforce.
The Superveloce’s interior is mostly inspired by the Aventador, although the carbon fiber sports bucket seats are unique. They also reduce weight, as does the elimination of acoustic insulation, exposing the carbon fiber chassis. To cut weight, Lamborghini even removed the complete infotainment system, although it can be “added back” as a free factory option.
It goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, and 0 to 200 km/h in 8.6 and also 0 to 300 km/h in 24 seconds. Max speed is over 350 km/h and it achieves that in under 7 minutes.
Graziano, the Italian gearbox expert company, provides Lamborghini with an automatic manual transmission dubbed Independent Shifting Rods.
The Lamborghini Aventador SV is the most powerful model in the series, with a 6.5-liter V12 engine producing 750 horsepower, whereas the standard engine produces just 700. Both come with the single transmission available, a seven-speed automatic. A Roadster version is also available.
