Lamborghini Aventador SV

This is it. The final, most insane version of the not-so-civil Aventador. This is the no-nonsense, Nurburgring bashing bull. The last hurrah of Lambo's latest beast, and perhaps of traditional super cars in general. No turbos, no electric assistance, just a big old six and a half liters of fire and brimstone. Whatever softness Lambo was accused of with the Huracan, we take back.

Aventador SV goes topless.

The Lamborghini Aventador SV – for Superveloce – backs up the promise of its aggressive, fighter jet styling; it is a monster of a supercar. As evidenced by its Nurburgring lap time of 6min 59secs it has the raw performance to live with hybrid hypercars costing three times the SV’s £315,000. Supercar driving experiences do not come more authentic than this.

As the name suggests, 750 bhp(handily more than the F12) has been made available to your right foot, 50kg have been carved off, and an assortment of aero bits layed on (assume you've already noticed that rear wing ).

In dynamic terms the SV feels sharper and more agile than the standard Aventador, but that car was hardly lacking in dynamic ability itself. Equipped with the vast rear wing and contrasting styling elements the SV looks incredible on the road. Few cars have ever snapped the necks of onlookers quite so readily as this one.

The single-clutch gearbox has been improved slightly for this installation, but the thinly padded bucket seats offer no lower back support and their long distance comfort is non-existent. The standard Aventador’s grand tourer credentials have certainly been gnawed away, but the SV is just about as exciting and dramatic as supercars get.

Aventador SV owners will be interested to know that this car’s predecessor, the Murcielago SV, is now valued at close to £400,000 on the used market. When they were new five years ago they carried a list price of £270,000, which represents a significant increase in value.

However, fewer than 200 Murcielago SVs were built compared to a planned run of 600 Aventador SVs, so it would be too simplistic to expect the newer car’s values to do exactly the same. All Aventador SVs have now been allocated to customers(boo), so anybody hoping to get into one will very likely have to pay a premium over the £315,000 list price.
