Lamborghini Aventador SV Laps Nürburgring In 6:59.73, Beats Nissan GT-R Nismo

The Lamborghini Aventador SV has pulled off a staggering sub-7 minute lap on the Nürburgring Nordschleife – 6 minutes and 59.73 seconds to be precise.

This is a remarkable result, considering that the Porsche 918 Spyder has set a lap time of 6 minutes and 57 seconds. The Lamborghini Aventador SV is therefore under 3 seconds slower than the much more expensive and exclusive hypercar.

Lamborghini set the time during development tests with Pirelli for the P Zero Corsa tyre and managed to beat the Nissan GT-R Nismo’s 7:08.69 lap from 2013 in the process.

As a result, the 740hp Aventador SV is now the fourth quickest production car on the Nürburgring, after the Radical SR8 LM, Radical SR8 and Porsche 918 Spyder.

Scroll down to watch the very spectacular (both visually and audibly) full on-board lap.
