Automobili Lamborghini introduced the Lamborghini LP 750-4 Superveloce at the Salon de l’Automobile in Geneva. With increased power, lower weight, improved aerodynamics and innovative technologies the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date.
The weight in the LP 750-4 has been further reduced by 50 kg through enhanced lightweight engineering. The naturally aspirated V12 engine’s power is increased to 552 kW/750 hp. This results in a power-to-weight-ratio of 2,03 kg/hp. The Superveloce accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and powers on to reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h (more than 217 mph) making it the fastest production Lamborghini ever built.
“The new Aventador Superveloce continues the Lamborghini tradition of SV models, pushing the boundaries in terms of performance and pure driving emotion,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The original Aventador was presented four years ago, and the Superveloce pays homage to its passionate owners, as well as the fan community.”
The 6.5 liter, naturally aspirated V12 engine in the Lamborghini Aventador has been redesigned for the Superveloce and equipped with a completely new lightweight exhaust system. The newly engineered exhaust system not only lowers back pressure, it also delivers all the music of the mighty twelve-cylinder engine – from a moderate rumble when rolling through the city at low revs to the screaming crescendo of gears spinning at top speed.
The design of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce embodies aggressive power alongside technical superiority. In creating the Superveloce, from the very beginning the aerodynamic engineers worked closely with the designers of Lamborghini Centro Stile with the objective of ensuring an optimum aerodynamic balance. The most obvious new element is a large racing-style rear wing which improves aerodynamic efficiency and generates additional downforce.
The Superveloce make the standard Aventador look rather tame. And that is some feat. Official US pricing isn’t announced yet, but we expect it to be about $366,000 based on European pricing.
