Lamborghini has announced the US-spec Aventador Superveloce will carry a starting price of $493,069.

When Lamborghini unveiled the Aventador SV earlier this month in Geneva they only disclosed the €327,190 price tag applicable in Europe, but now we know the US variant will set you back $493,069, including the $3,700 gas guzzler tax as well as the $3,495 destination & delivery charges. The SV suffix commands a significant premium over the "regular" Aventador which in United States kicks off at $400,995.

The significant price difference brings an extra 50 HP, a 50 kg diet and a new body which is 150% more aerodynamic and generates an additional 170% of downforce. Compared to the standard Aventador LP 700-4, the Superveloce version is 0.1 seconds quicker in the sprint which now takes a mere 2.8 seconds before topping out at more than 217 mph (350 km/h).

Lamborghini will start shipping the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce towards the end of spring.
