More power, more performance, and more exclusivity is the name of the game at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, as always. Lamborghini brings the next SV in its storied history – the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. Leave it to the Italians to name their fastest Lamborghini ever “Superveloce” or “Superfast”.
How fast is it? Lamborghini says that it’s the fastest series-production car they have created thus far.
The 6.5-liter V12 engine has been massaged to produce 750 hp (an increase of 50 hp over the standard Avantador). The engine revs have been bumped up and it now makes maximum power at 8,400 rpm. There is a new light-weight exhaust system that further reduces back pressure. The variable valve timing and and variable intake system have been tuned for improved torque curve. It makes nearly 509 lb-ft of it @ 5,500 rpm.
This is good for a 2.8 second 0-60 MPH sprint, which is 0.1 seconds better than the LP 700-4. Top speed is said to be 217 mph, and the new fixed rear wing and other modifications improve down force.
Better performance is helped by reduced weight. Extensive use of carbon fiber gets rid of 110 pounds for a new curb weight of just 3,362 pounds.
Aventador SV continues to use the 7-speed automated manual ISR gearbox, and the all-wheel-drive system is still there as the “-4” in the name suggests. For steering, it uses an electrically assisted power steering unit.
The latest SV will be available for sale in the spring. United States pricing is not yet announced, but expect it to be around $370,000.
