The covers were recently taken off the brand new Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV in Singapore for the very first time. Given Singapore’s love of supercars, it is hardly surprising why it was selected as one of the first markets to host a local unveiling of the hardcore Aventador variant.
The Lamborghini Aventador SV presented in Singapore was finished in the same shade of red as the car from the Geneva Motor Show and ongoing Shanghai Motor Show. Also in attendance was Lamborghini chief executive Stephan Winkelmannn as well as a black Lamborghini Huracan and a ‘regular’ Aventador derivative.
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.
