UPDATE: The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SuperVeloce is coming to Australia. Read on...
Called the LP750-4 SuperVeloce, the new model will draw 750 PS (552kW) and 690Nm from its naturally-aspirated V12 engine - up 37kW on the ‘regular’ Aventador.
A diet resulting in a greater percentage of carbon-fibre means the LP750-4 weighs 50kg less than the standard model at 1523kg, and a power-to-weight ratio of 2.03kg per PS.
If that sounds like something you'd like to own, there's good news for local fans with confirmation the LP750-4 SV will be available in Australia - priced from a cool $882,650 plus on-road costs.
Carbon-fibre is mixed with lightweight aluminium in the monocoque construction, and more carbon-fibre can be found in the door panels, rear wing and fixed air intakes.
The Superveloce's wheels are also of the lightweight variety, measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 at the rear, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres. Carbon Ceramic brakes are standard.
Put it all together with Lamborghini’s all-wheel-drive system, and the LP750-4 SV can hit 100km/h from rest in 2.8 seconds, on its way to a top speed beyond 350km/h.
"The new Aventador SuperVeloce continues the Lamborghini tradition of SV models, pushing the boundaries in terms of performance and pure driving emotion," President and CEO of Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, said.
"The original Aventador was presented four years ago, and the SuperVeloce pays homage to its passionate owners, as well as the fan community, whose enthusiasm has resulted in the biggest commercial success ever of a Lamborghini V12 super sports car.”
Mr Winkelmann said the LP750-4 SV is “the most exclusive, pure and emotional production model in the history of our brand", presumably until the next special-edition comes along to claim that title.
Inside, there’s carbon-fibre bucket seats - and that’s about it. There’s no carpet, reduced noise insulation materials and no infotainment system, although the latter is available as a no-cost option.
Outside, the LP750-4’s aerodynamics have improved “150 percent” over the standard Aventador, while also bringing significantly more downforce than the regular model.
Other performance goodies include a new Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) system, which adapts the steering ratio to match the road speed, and a newly engineered exhaust system.
Pricing for the European market is 327,190 euros (AU$469,249) plus tax, with availability expected to begin in May.
