The Lamborghini Aventador, most epic Lamborghini ever built. It has a refined style, but did not lose touch with the old Lamborghinis, it had that fearsome look, that monster way of dealing with things, no curves, but hard shaped lines instead. At the time, its main rival, was another monster, from the Italian Ferrari, The F12 Berlinetta, which has beaten the Aventador in all fields so far. That is why, Lamborghini presented to the world, not long ago The Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce.


As the previous Lamborghini cars that carried the Superveloce : SV name, it is a responsibility towards it. There are quite some standards. The Murcielago SV was quite a hard car to handle, and it had character of its own. Furious on the road, fast on tracks, it was something. Before that, the Diablo SV, the heritage of SV, and the essence of power. Now it is the turn of the Aventador to show its muscles.

Under the bonnet, it has the same engine as the stock Aventador, a 6.5L V12, developing now 740 bhp @8400 Rpms, that is 40 more than the stock version. Not only that, the SV now, races from to stop to 100 kph in just 2.8 seconds, instead of 3.0. Torque though remains the same, 690 Nm but the engine revs higher, @8500 Rpms. The SV has a 50 kg weight loss compared to the regular Aventador, now it only weighs 1525 kg. Top speed is said to be more than 217 mph (350 kph).  The power is channeled to the four wheels through a 7-speed double-clutch transmission, the rear wheels do have an automatic lock differential, for letting the car play with its own tail.


The performance above is achieved via a weight loss program and a new aerodynamic package. The the engine cover, the rear wing and wing panels, some of the interior, and the air intakes are now made in carbon fiber. The sound system is optional. The rear wing is the main contributor to aerodynamic efficiency and higher downforce, along with larger air intakes at the front and a larger rear diffuser, a side skirt, and two front wings. All that, without increasing drag, which gives it one of the lowest drag coefficient in the supercars world.

Lamborghini says that, same as the Aventador, it has many technological advance features. They focused on 3 main items in the car :
1st item     : power to weight ratio, which for the Lamborghini Aventador SV is 485bhp per tonne.
2nd Item   : aerodynamics. The new aerodynamic package not only gives the car a more aggressive look, but also, helps achieve higher performance.
3rd Item    : the drivability of the car. For Lamborghini cars, it’s known that, too fast too furious, but with tech elements such as magneto-rheological pushrod suspension and Lamborghini Dynamic Steering, how would the SV react?

All this technology, and high performance, isn’t for free, the SV has a really expensive price tag put on, at 400,000$ only 600 persons will be lucky enough to have it. Lamborghini says their car has no competitor, however, on a side note, The Ferrari is preparing a track focused version of its F12, which will make thing more interesting.
