As well as taking their inspiration from the previous SV models, the engineers and designers of Sant’Agata also cite the Countach Evoluzione, which pioneered the use of composite materials at Lamborghini. So the Aventador SV doesn’t simply feature a more powerful V12 engine, it also incorporates revised aerodynamics, magneto-rheological damping and reduced weight to create an even more dynamic driving experience.
From the front, you can spot the redesigned front skirt and wings, while the larger front intakes help cool the 750hp V12 engine and brakes. At the rear, a large race-style wing and huge rear diffuser create high levels of downforce; the former can be manually adjusted. The additional power of the 750hp V12 demands more cooling, so the Aventador SV also features a mesh rear panel and an extra radiator that draws air from the fixed side intakes. Black Dione forged 20”/21” rims are another standout feature.
The interior has been completely revised with a focus on reducing weight. The new sports bucket seats and the door panels are made of carbon and the infotainment system is deleted in the interest of weight saving, though it can be specified as a no-cost option. The result is a weight reduction of 50kg that contributes to the impressive 2.03 kg/hp power to weight ratio. Not only is the Aventador SV the most powerful production series Lamborghini, it’s also exceptionally agile and precise.
