High on power, low on weight is the mantra for every Super Veloce produced and Lamborghini has achieved the same with the new Aventador LP750-4 SV, the fastest production Lambo yet that has been revealed at the ongoing 85th Geneva Motor Show. While the Super Veloce is always introduced at the end of its supercar’s lifecycle, the Italian giant is broken the conventional norm with the Aventador and brought in the model a lot earlier than anticipated and boy oh boy, could we be any happier.
Jumping quickly to the specifics, the Aventador LP750-4 SV has shed 50 kgs off its total weight compared to the regular Aventador. Employing the same coveted 6.5-litre V12 naturally aspirated engine on the SV, the power has been bumped up to 750 HP gaining an additional 50 HP while the torque output is a staggering 935 Nm, courtesy of the new free-flow exhaust and refined valve timing and is paired to the 7-speed singe clutch tranny. All that ostentatious amount of power is sent to the rear wheels via Lamborghini’s Haldex-based permanent all-wheel-drive system that will make sure the rear does not stick out too much.
Lamborghini says that the Aventador SV has seen ample use of carbon-fibre in its construction that has helped shave off a lot of weight. The supercar now comes with power-to-weight ratio of 2 kg per HP. Pretty badass if you ask us. In numbers, the fastest Lambo is capable of doing the 0-100 km/hr sprint in 2.8 seconds and it can now hit a top whack of 354 kmph. Adding some stability to the entire package, the Aventador SV also gets adaptive magnetic suspension, adjusted wheel damping for even more responsive handling, a push-rod suspension with magna-ride system and Lamborghini dynamic steering. There is also adaptive damping that counteracts brake diving.
Aggressively beautiful, the Superveloce gets a front splitter and houses massive air intakes. The sides feature the new 20-inch, 255-width front tyres and 21-inch, 355-width tyres at the rear, mounted to centre-lock wheels and extra scoops behind the doors that send cool air to that beastly V12 motor at the back. In addition, the Aventador SV with a special Aero Kit so that you don’t spill coffee while hard cornering. The rear comes with a large rear wing that provides 170 percent more downforce than the regular Aventador. The rear also gets an extreme carbon fibre rear diffuser, and a quartet central exhaust system.
The interiors of the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV are a whole new story altogether. Weight reduction is evident the upholstery has been given a miss exposing the carbon-fibre chassis while the instrument cluster now houses the G-Force indicator. You also miss out on the carpet and noise insulation while the infotainment system is being offered as a no cost option. With all the missing features, lower weight and high power output, you end up paying more for the Aventador SV that will make broken necks a lot more common on roads as passerbys drool over your Italian beauty.
