Geneva 2015: Lamborghini Aventador SV Bows


Need a lighter, more powerful exotic bull? The Lamborghini Aventador SV, bowing at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show, just might be the answer.

The Aventador SV is 110 lbs lighter than the standard Aventador, and is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 pushing 750 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque to all corners through a seven-speed single-clutch automated manual connected to the SV’s Haldex permanent AWD system. Nil to 62 mph comes at 2.8 seconds, and tops out at 217 mph.

Aggressive aero and adjustable rear wing keep the bull close to the ground, while adaptive suspension individually adjusts wheel damping during cornering. Other features include electromechanical dynamic steering, carbon fiber seats and trim, and TFT gauge cluster.

While no pricing in U.S. dollars has been announced, Europeans can expect to spend €327,000 ($368,000 USD) before VAT, with deliveries beginning in the spring.
