Not long after being revealed at the Geneva Motor Show 2014, two stunning Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV prototypes were snapped at a petrol station in Spain. While not camouflaged, the mismatching wheels suggest that these are indeed test mules from the Italian manufacturer before customer deliveries of the hardcore Aventador kick off later this year.
In case you didn’t know, the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV’s 6.5-litre V12 engine gets a modest power boost of 50 hp together with a weight reduction of 50 kg. The top speed is now 350 km/h and the 0-100 km/h time drops, as mentioned, from 2.9 seconds to 2.8 seconds. Torque remains at 507 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm and peak rpm rises to 8,500 rpm.
The aforementioned weight reduction is achieved through the use of carbon fibre for parts including the engine bay cover, rear wing, wing panels, interior door panels, bucket sports seats and air intakes. Carpets and noise insulation have also been taken out, as has the multimedia system which can be put back in at no extra cost.
The Lamborghini Aventador SV also gets forged centre-locking lightweight alloy wheels measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear. Carbon ceramic brakes and Pirelli P Zero Corsa sports tyres come as standard.
