Lamborghini’s special edition Aventador SV has been spied in Europe this week, minus any form of disguise.
The SV was expected to make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, but the cat is out of the bag now as these spy pics reveal.
Baring all for a video and photo shoot, the SV features a heavily revised rear end with a carbon-fibre wing, along with more lashings of carbon-fibre along the sides and front.
The rear seems to have gained additional styling modifications since the model was spied testing at the Nurburgring, with the rear wing in particular appearing to be an all-new item.
Expect the SV to be lighter than the standard Aventador, with huge disc brakes front and rear along with lower, stiffer suspension.
The new model is the latest to wear the Italian carmaker’s ‘SV’ (Super Veloce) badge, reserved for extra hard-core versions in Lamborghini’s line-up.
Not that the standard Aventador is any slouch, packing a 515kW/690Nm from its naturally-aspirated 6.5 litre V12 petrol engine in the LP 700-4 model, and a 0-100km/h time of 2.9 seconds on its way to a 350km/h top speed.
The SV should therefore better the 0-100km/h time by at least a tenth or two, and a uprated power figure of around 588kW (up 73kW) has been suggested.
Drive is expected to reach the road through Lamborghini’s all-wheel-drive system via a seven-speed single-clutch automatic transmission; perhaps toughened at match the SV’s power output.
