Everything You Need To Know About The Aventador SV, Lambo’s Craziest Bull Yet [w/Video]

Ok, Lamborghini has given us the full details on the craziest Aventador yet, the Super Veloce that is.

The Lamboghini Aventador LP750-4 Super Veloce is using the same recipe as its predecessors did which means more power with less weight. The 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine now packs 750PS (740hp) arriving at 8,400rpm and 690Nm (508lb ft) of torque arriving at 5.500rpm, that have to move around minus 50kg due to “extensive lightweight engineering solutions” which is fancy talk for replacing many parts with carbon-fibre ones.

The Aventador SV gets from still to 100km/h (0-62mph) in 2.8 seconds and will keep going until it hits “more than 350 km/h” (217mph). The power-to-weight ratio now reaches an eye-watering 2,03kg/hp. The rev-limiter is set 8,500rpm. The new exhaust lowers back pressure and allows the V12 to clear its mighty throat louder than ever.

“In the Superveloce Lamborghini’s expertise in lightweight engineering is clearly evident. With technological features which combined with design, quality standards and craftsmanship, the Superveloce results in the most exclusive, pure and emotional production model in the history of our brand,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

Even the carbon fibre monocoque has a different serial number than the one in the regular Aventador, due to the lightweight aluminium frames that bolt on it and combined with the carbon door panels, bumpers, side sills, fixed air intakes and rear wing, show Lamborghini’s commitment in offering the most focused V12 car in its history.

The carbon theme continues on the inside as expected, with new buckets and door panels made from this magic stuff while carpets and other insulation materials are absent as is the infotainment center (who needs one with that V12 lurking behind). The instrument cluster is entirely new and bespoke for the Aventador SV. The TFT screen is dominated by a yellow color, with RPMs showed in light blue and a G-force indicator located in the lower part of it.

The exterior design of the Aventador SV has been optimized in order to ensure the best possible aerodynamic balance. The result is that the shape now is 150% more efficient and the downforce pushing the car to the ground has been increased by a staggering 170% over the standard Aventador.

The pushrod suspension now features magneto-rheological dampers, or adaptive if you prefer plain English, that not only is up to the task of managing the raging bull but now offers characteristics like counter brake-diving to keep the Aventador flat in all situations.

The electromechanical Dynamic Steering has been specially tuned to the latest SV as well. The lightweight forged rims measure 20 inches front and 21 inches at the back and are offered optionally with central locking mounts. A set of standard carbon ceramic brakes ensure that the stopping power will always be sufficient.

The starting price for the Aventador SV in Europe is set at €327,190 before taxes with sales starting in late spring 2015.
