The term “hot commodity” doesn’t even begin to describe the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. Just three months after it was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, the SV-spec model has already achieved sold-out status.
While not all of the 600 planned units have been produced, each and every one of them has been pre-sold. 200 units are scheduled for North and South American delivery, another 200 are headed to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and the final 200 supercars will ship off the Asian Pacific countries.
Priced from €327,190 in Europe and $493,069 in United States, the more powerful, better handling, and more aggressively-styled Aventador SV also shaves 110 pounds off the standard Aventador’s belt line.
As the name suggests, the LP 750-4 developed 750 horsepower — 50 more than the normal car. Thanks to its aerodynamic upgrades, the SV is 150% more efficient at cutting through the air, and adds an extra 70% of downforce. These tweaks add up to a 2.8 second sprint to 60 mph and a top speed of over 217 mph.
The Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce is rivaled by models like the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and Pagani Huayra. The F12 develops 740 hp and 508 pound-feet of torque from a 6.3-liter V12 while the Huayra uses an AMG-sourced twin-turbocharged V12 with 720 hp and 740 lb-ft of torque on tap. The F12 gets to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and the Huayra falls behind both the F12 and Aventador SV with a 3.2 second sprint.
Most most to least unique, the Huayra costs $1.4 million and only 100 models have been built. The Aventador SV is the next most expensive and rare, while the F12 seeming like a bargain at $350,000.
Without any more hardcore Aventador versions being planned, the LP 750-4 SV may maintain its status as the most powerful production Lamborghini –besting the Veneno LP740-4– for a good while.
