The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV is currently celebrating its Asian debut at the Shanghai Motor Show 2015 after its world reveal back in Geneva last month. As you probably know by now, the Aventador SV is the most potent variant of the marque’s range-topping supercar and thanks to its eye-catching design, we were drawn to it at the Lamborghini booth.
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.
