Lamborghini is debuting its most extreme Aventador to date at the Geneva show today.
The car resurrects the SV badge, drops some 50kg from its kerbweight and ups the output from its naturally aspirated V12 to 750hp at a heady 8,400rpm. The result of all that is 62mph in 2.8 seconds and a top speed in excess of 217mph. It retains the standard car’s four-wheel drive system, though the pushrod suspension now features magnetic damping for improved dynamic response. An adjustable rear wing adds downforce, while re-profiled front air intakes also improve aero and cooling.
The interior takes the SV’s pared back weight savings and focuses on them, with exposed carbon from the monocoque, as well as Lamborghini’s ‘carbon skin’ a hard-wearing, lightweight carbonfibre derived fabric.
There’s changes in the TFT instruments too, with added info like g-force indicators, but we doubt you’ll have time to even glance at them. No prices have been announced, but around £300,000 seems likely, and still a comparative bargain given the performance.
Lamborghini calls it the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date. We’re not about to disagree.
