Some Italians are simply better than others.
It’s not quite a hypercar on par with the likes of, say, a Koenigsegg or Pagani, but it’s definitely more than your so-called average supercar. Today is 2017 Lamborghini Aventador SV day and, needless, to say, we’ve fallen hard for the 740 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque fighting bull. Remember, the SV is more powerful than the standard Aventador, which produces an also impressive 691 ponies. Lamborghini engineers managed to suck out the extra power by adding a freer-flowing exhaust and new engine calibrations.
What you may also not know about the Aventador SV is that it’s the first production car to utilize Lamborghini’s Carbon Skin material, the lightest available and it also happens to be flexible and robust; the inner roof and parts of the cockpit are covered in this stuff.
Aerodynamics have also been optimized by 150 percent and there’s 170 percent greater downforce over the standard Aventador. The interior? The closest thing to a stealth fighter jet you’ll ever experience. So what does compete directly against the Aventador SV? Honestly, not much. One particular car immediately came to mind, the Ferrari F12 tdf. Special thanks to Los Gatos Luxury Cars for letting us film the car.
