The 775-HP Novitec Lamborghini Aventador SV Is The Epitome of Excess


You would if you could.

You don’t want a Lamborghini Aventador, you want something with more power, with even more aggression. That’ll be the Aventador SV then. But what if you want something even more extreme than the Superveloce V12? This is where the likes of Novitec steps in. The Italian tuning firm’s Raging Bull division – Novitec Torado – has decided a car that has absolutely zero need of an upgrade should have an upgrade. And with its previous Aventador Roadster package, it knows what it's doing here.

The result? The Novitec Torado SV, a hilariously, albeit wonderfully, unnecessary creation that sees the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 upped to 775 hp and 544 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 35 horses and the same number of twisting power, and no doubt improving on the Aventador SV’s 2.8-second 0-62 mph time and 220-mph top speed.

A boost in power is married to a relatively subtle carbon-fiber aero kit that includes a new rear wing and side skirts, while a choice of F1-inspired Inconel or stainless steel is on offer for the exhaust, the former saving 21 kg of weight, both coming with remote controlled butterfly valves to make some serious noise at the touch of a button. Vossen was tasked with aping the Aventador’s taillight design when creating a set of forged center-locking alloys. Staggered 20/21 inches front/rear, they are available in no less than 72 different colors, while a new suspension drops the Lambo by 35 mm, which necessitates the need of a front-lift system to avoid scraping the two-piece front splitter.
