Lamborghini has overseen the return of an old name for the brand, SuperVeloce or SV. Last seen in the 1995 Diablo the SV badge now adorns the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. The SuperVeloce is a vehicle made for speed and high performance judging from details supplied by Lamborghini. After shedding a whopping 100kg (220 lbs) through extensive use of carbon fiber and other light materials, the car should perform to very high standards on and off the track. Carbon fiber was utilised in some unusual areas like the transmission tunnel. The material is also seen in the rear wing, rear diffuser and front spoiler among other places.
Lamborghini reworked the 6.5-litre V12 into a powerplant capable of producing 670hp (493kW) and 660Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque. Its 0 to 100 km/h time is 3.2 seconds and top speed is a runaway 342km/h (212 mph). The engine works with the automated manual gearbox e-gear, all-wheel-drive and two limited slip differentials. Alternatively buyers can choose a 6-speed manual transmission.
The SuperVeloce presents a statement of might even from its exterior looks. The design is defined by razor sharp kinks first seen in the brave Reventón and to some extent the Gallardo LP 560-4. Up front 245/35 ZR 18 rubber wraps the wheels and at the rear the tyre size is 335/30 ZR 18. The interior is dominated by the colour black which is found in the carbon fiber panels and inserts as well as Alcantara sports leather seats.
