The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce has been uncovered ahead of its debut at the 2015 Geneva motor show. And if the details the brand has released about the new model are anything to go by, it should live up to its name.
The 'super fast' version of the Lamborghini Aventador has more power, less weight and revised aerodynamics that blend to offer what the Italian sports car maker describes as "the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date", with "unmistakable Lamborghini super sports car DNA, dynamic superiority and exceptional driving precision".
The 6.5-litre V12-powered Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce (or SV) has seen its power bumped from 515kW to 552kW, while its weight has been reduced by 50 kilograms as a result of the widespread use of carbonfibre (now 1525kg).
Lightweight measures include new sports bucket seats and door panels made of carbonfibre, while the interior does away with an infotainment system (though it can be optioned back in at no cost), carpet and noise insulation. There are also carbon elements on the outside, including a new wing and air splitters.
The result is that the all-wheel-drive SV can run from 0-100km/h in just 2.8 seconds (down from the regular Aventador's claim of 2.9sec), while its top speed is claimed at "more than 350km/h". The regular Aventador is limited to 350km/h.
As a result, the brand claims it is the "most sports-oriented, fastest and most emotional series production Lamborghini" it has ever made.
It rides of 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels, with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tread and carbon ceramic brakes as standard. The pushrod suspension system of the Aventador includes adaptive "Magneto Rheological" suspension on the SV, which the brand says offers immediate response to road conditions and driving style, and also countering nose-dive under hard braking.
The steering system is an electromechanical system known as Lamborghini Dynamic Steering, which changes ratio based on road speed and what drive mode is selected. The company says the system "ensures even greater stability at high speed, while making it significantly easier to manoeuvre at low speed".
