Straight after the Geneva Motor Show, the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce LP750-4 was sent to America, were it made its continental debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Lambo seized this opportunity to also announce the official pricing of the new SV, which is $489,600.
That is almost half a million dollars, and that’s what you’d call almost a lot. But you have keep in mind this is a ‘SV’ Lamborghini, and these things tend to become future classics. In fact, during an auction at the same venue where the new Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce made its debut, a 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV was sold for $2.31 million. So if you are prepared to hold to onto the car for like 30 or 40 years, it might quadruple your money!
The good new is, you will plenty of fun while you are waiting for your SV to become a classic. The Aventador’s V12 engine in this version has been increased to 750 horsepower while weight has been decreased by 110 pounds, achieved through more extensive use of lightweight material and omitting a few of the luxury amenities. That means the Superveloce can accelerate to 60 mph from zero in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 217 mph. That is what experts call seriously fast.
Compared to a normal Aventador, the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce features a more aggressive aero kit as well as adaptive magneto-rheological suspension and the electromechanical Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS).
