Lamborghini Aventador SV comes to India for first time costing Rs. 8 crores
Everyone has heard about the Lamborghini brand. Manufacturing models that went on to become some of the most favourite pinup posters of my childhood, Lamborghini is probably the most well-known luxury supercar producers in the world. As the company makes supercars, these vehicles are very fast. However, Lamborghini makes even faster editions of their ultra-fast cars. These vehicles carry the ‘SV’ nameplate, where SV stands for Superveloce.
One of the most famous SV models is of the Lamborghini Aventador SV LP 750-4. To the delight of many enthusiasts, it has come to notice that one example from the total 600 units of the same car finished in Rosso Mars red will soon be making its way to our country. The even crazier version of the Aventador costs a little less Rs. 3 crores in Europe, but when brought to India, it is expected to be priced somewhere in the region of Rs. 8 crores (ex-showroom).
The main talking point for all Lamborghinis is their design and the Aventador SV is one hell of an example of that. It has sportier and more aggressive lines and panels than the normal version. Both the front and rear bumpers have been edged to be more aerodynamic and thus reduce drag. On the side are sexy looking web-like alloy wheels that add on to the overall flair. A new fixed rear wing and rear diffuser flaunts the changes at the back. The rear wing alone produces 170 percent more downforce.
Powering the Aventador LP 750-4 SV is the same 6.5-litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine that also does duty on its standard counterpart. But the engine has been tuned to produce better power figures of 740 BHP and 690 Nm of torque. Power is 49 BHP more than the LP 700-4, which is quite a lot. The Superveloce further uses a lot of carbon fibre elements that helps in reducing weight by 50 kg. Hence, the Lamborghini Aventador SV accelerates to 100 km/hr from standstill in just 2.8 seconds. With a top speed of more than 350 km/hr, 200 km/hr comes up in just 8.6 seconds, which is better than many super expensive cars sold in India.
Weight saving has been carried forward to the interiors as well. The whole dashboard and instrument cluster is finished in carbon fibre and Alcantara leather. Even the racing seats carry carbon fibre elements. The suspension setup has been given a hi-tech magneto-rheological damper that makes the car more agile when making sharp turns and a dynamic steering system helps to give the most amount of feedback to the driver, making driving more fun.
