2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce
The new Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce, or simply the SV for short, follows a tried and true tradition of making an extreme sportscar even more extreme. They reduced weight by 110 lbs while increasing power 50 hp. The result is a car that does 0-62 mph in an amazing 2.8 seconds, and with enough space, it can max out at a top speed of over 217 mph.
Increased performance brings its own demands. The SV features a 150% improvement in aerodynamic efficiency, with 170% more downforce than the standard Aventador model. Subtle changes in the front end design allow for improved air intake. The rear sees a more radical design shift, with a large octagonal grill for better temperature management, as well as a large diffusor and rear wing which is adjustable for either cornering on the track with maximum downforce or reduced drag for straight line speed.
Lamborghini has opted for their seven speed automated manual ISR transmission with paddle shifters over the dual-clutch auto that is the norm among sportscars in this league. Lamborghini does claim that their ISR transmission is the fastest of its kind available on a production car.

With increased power, lower weight, improved aerodynamics and innovative technologies the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date: unmistakable Lamborghini super sports car DNA, dynamic superiority and exceptional driving precision. A focus on weight reduction while incorporating innovative technologies has resulted in the most sports-oriented, fastest and most emotional series production Lamborghini ever. The weight has been further reduced by 50 kg through enhanced lightweight engineering including significant use of carbon fiber. The naturally aspirated V12 engine's power is increased to 552 kW/750 hp. This results in a power-to-weight-ratio of 2,03 kg/hp. The Superveloce accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and powers on to reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h (more than 217 mph).
