The Lamborghini Aventador SV Is Here
Confirming heavy speculation, Italian supercar specialist Lamborghini recently debuted the newest enhancement to the company’s flagship Aventador series, officially named the Lamborghini Aventador 750-4 SV.
Worthy of the Raging Bull insignia, the all-wheel-drive supercar — dubbed the Aventador Superveloce — possesses more power yet carries less weight than its predecessor, pushing the boundaries in terms of performance and driving emotion.
All that power’s got a lighter load to carry around: Thanks to ample use of carbon fiber and the grand supercar tradition of charging more money for less stuff, Lamborghini says it’s trimmed 110 lbs from the Aventador. The car has a power-to-weight ratio of 4.48 pounds per horsepower.
Specifically, Lambo says it’ll do 0-62 in 2.8 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 217 mph. To keep things steady at those speeds, the SV wears an aggressive aero kit, including a boy-racer rear wing adjustable to provide up to 70 percent more downforce than the garden variety Aventador.
“The new Aventador Superveloce continues the Lamborghini tradition of SV models, pushing the boundaries in terms of performance and pure driving emotion,” Stehpan Winkelmann, Lamborghini’s CEO, said ahead of the car’s debut.
What does all of this add up to? A 3,362-lb supercar that will price near $370,000 when it hits the market in “late spring.”
