Lamborghini has released a video with head of design Filippo Perini detailing what has changed in the new Aventador Superveloce (SV).
Their top priority was to boost downforce which is why a rear wing has been added and it features three positions: neutral, high, low. Other important upgrades include a massive rear diffuser, new exhaust system, fixed side vents and 20-inch front & 21-inch lightweight forged wheels shod in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. In addition, the front fascia was redesigned in order to balance the added downforce generated at the rear end.
Many of the added bits and pieces are manufactured from carbon fiber which has allowed Lamborghini to shave off a total of 50 kg (110 lbs) so the Aventador SV tips the scales at 1,525 kg (3,362 lbs). These changes have boosted aerodynamic efficiency by 150% while downforce has increased by 170%. Moreover, the naturally aspirated V12 6.5-liter engine can now unleash 750 HP (552 kW), representing a significant increase of 50 HP (37 kW) while torque has remained the same at 690 Nm (510 lb-ft).
All these upgrades have slashed 0.1s from the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) which now takes 2.8 seconds before the supercar tops out at more than 217 mph (350 km/h).
Scheduled to go on sale towards the end of this spring, the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce will cost €327,190.
