Lamborghini’s wild side is back with the new Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce

When Lamborghini dropped its teaser video last week for what it will reveal at this year’s Geneva Auto Show, our hearts started pumping at the site of that very distinct angular “S” logo that flashed throughout the video. Today, Lamborghini confirms what we wished it could mean: Introducing the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce .

“The new Aventador Superveloce continues the Lamborghini tradition of SV models, pushing the boundaries in terms of performance and pure driving emotion,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, which sounds like a humble statement when taking a look at what the Aventador Superveloce promises.

First and foremost, the Aventador SV looks extremely sharp, both figuratively and literally. Aerodynamics throughout the bodywork have been made 150 percent more efficient, giving the SV 170 % more downforce than the standard Aventador. A big part of this is the prominent rear wing that can be manually adjusted to three different positions depending on what the driver is looking to achieve, either max downforce for cornering, or high straight-line speed.

The completely redesigned front end is opened up more, redirecting air through the new wider breathing cavity with two front wings: one central body color, and the other, a black lower lip.

Around back, a more airflow-focused octagonal grill is in place where regular body panels would be, allowing for greater heat dissipation. Those not replaced have been reshaped in the Lambo’s aerodynamic optimization. A large diffuser sticks out from the underbody, flanking the four-barrel exhaust pipes protruding from the center.

Getting into the heart of things, the longitudinal mid-mounted V12 engine gets an increase in power,  giving the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine a power output of 750 horsepower, up from 690 hp in the standard version. Max torque is 508 pound-feet going through to all four wheels by way of a seven-speed ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) gearbox, which can shift a gear in 50 milliseconds, all done with a single clutch, thanks to shifting rods doing the grunt work.

This, plus a shedding of about 110 lbs, results in an Aventador that can sprint from 0 to 62 in 2.8 seconds. That’s the same acceleration as the Aventador’s limited edition cousin, the mostly carbon-fiber Klingon battleship Lamborghini Veneno. Those brave enough can take the SV to a top speed higher than 217 mph.

Keeping it all in check is Lambo’s pushrod suspension system that packs the tongue-twisty Magneto Rheological Suspension system to firm up dampening at a moments notice. A new electromechanical dynamic steering system variable adapts the steering ration to the road speed and selected driving mode, allowing full, tight control while on the move. Coming to a stop will be the duty of standard carbon ceramic brakes. The SV rolls with 20-inch lightweight forged rims in the front and 21-inch wheels in the back, equipped with central locking mounts and shod in Pirelli P-Zero Corsa sport tires.

Climbing into the cockpit reveals the Aventador’s now visible carbon fiber monocoque, with matching sports seats upholstered in alcantara. The new TFT screen has much more of a yellow-dominated color scheme, with a light blue RPM shift indicator as well as a G-force meter.

The Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce will go on sale later this spring, with an asking price of €327,190 before the value added tax. The launch color, Rosso Bia will be available alongside five additional, yet unspecified colors at launch.

Best electric car charger deals: $100 off home charging stations
The handle of the Grizzl-E EV charger plugged into a vehicle.

While they may not dominate the market just yet, electric vehicles have become pretty massive in the past few years, with many people seeing them as the perfect alternative to traditional combustion engines. Of course, because EVs aren't as widespread, that means that there aren't always a ton of charging stations around, and sometimes those have inoperative or full chargers, leading to quite a few issues down the road. Luckily, you can get some excellent car chargers at home, which is why we've collected our favorite car charger deals for you below to save you trouble.
Seguma 16Amp Level 1/2 EV Charger -- $120, was $160

If you need a more basic charger, this Level one and two charger from Seguma is a solid option and can deliver 16 amps and 3.84kW, which is pretty substantial. It also comes with a NEMA 6-20 plug and a standardized J1772 connector, which should work on most EV vehicles out there except for Tesla, which has its own connector. There are also some intelligent charging features, which include things such as protection against things like under and over voltage, leakage, and lighting, and it has an automatic cut-off when your EV is fully charged.

Revamped Lucid Air shows this luxury EV’s bandwidth

If you’re only going to sell one car, you’d better make it count.

The Lucid Air electric car finally took flight in 2020 after years in financial limbo. While Lucid plans to launch an SUV called the Gravity and a line of smaller, more mainstream models, the Air remains Lucid’s sole product nearly four years after its launch. The Air has evolved in that time, adding multiple configurations that allow this one car to fill several niches.

With 1,800 horsepower, Bugatti’s Tourbillon brings plug-ins past the Prius
The Bugatti Tourbillon is a plug-in hybrid.

Plug-in hybrid technology has reached the automotive industry’s upper echelon. Bugatti has unveiled the Tourbillon, the long-awaited successor to the Chiron, with a gasoline-electric drivetrain rated at 1,800 horsepower, 3D-printed parts in the suspension, and an unusual sound system that has no speakers.

Bugatti developed the Tourbillon on a blank slate. The big coupe’s proportions are relatively close to the Chiron’s because the two cars need to fulfill a similar mission: cruise safely and comfortably at jaw-dropping speeds. Bugatti hints that hitting 250-plus-mph is well within the Tourbillon’s scope of capabilities. For context, the Chiron set a speed record and became the first car to break the 300-mph barrier when it reached 304 mph in 2019, so the brand knows a thing or two about speed.
