The lap is blisteringly quick, manic, and for those of us who aren’t racing drivers – jaw-dropping. The Lamborghini test pilot threads the Aventador SV through the Nurburgring’s 73 corners and 12.9 miles like a flying ace, at some points getting very comfortable with riding the curbs. Then again, the car in question is quite the performer as well.
The 2016 Aventador LP 750-4 SV benefits from a 110 pound weight loss, nearly 50 horsepower over the standard model (739 hp), and is now capable of blasting to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and sprinting all the way to 217 mph. Certifiably fast, and now shoulder to shoulder with hypercars. McLaren claims the P1 went sub-seven around the Nurburgring, while Porsche has proven the 918 Spyder to be a 6:57 lapper.
