Lamborghini presented the new incarnation of their flagship Aventador car at the International Motor Show in Geneva.
Christened the "Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce," this incarnation of the Raging Bull is the meanest and most hardcore yet.
"The new Aventador Superveloce continues the Lamborghini tradition of (Superveloce) SV models, pushing the boundaries in terms of performance and pure driving emotion," Lamborghini president and CEO Stephan Winkelmann said.
With increased power, lower weight, improved aerodynamics and innovative technologies the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date: unmistakable Lamborghini super sports car DNA, dynamic superiority and exceptional driving precision. A focus on weight reduction while incorporating innovative technologies has resulted in the most sports-oriented, fastest and most emotional series production Lamborghini ever.
The weight has been further reduced by 50 kg through enhanced lightweight engineering including significant use of carbon fiber. The naturally aspirated V12 engine's power is increased to 552 kW/750 hp. This results in a power-to-weight-ratio of 2,03 kg/hp. The Superveloce accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and powers on to reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h (more than 217 mph).
"The original Aventador was presented four years ago, and the Superveloce pays homage to its passionate owners, as well as the fan community, whose enthusiasm has resulted in the biggest commercial success ever of a Lamborghini V12 super sports car. In the Superveloce Lamborghini's expertise in lightweight engineering is clearly evident. With technological features which, combined with design, quality standards and craftsmanship, the Superveloce results in the most exclusive, pure and emotional production model in the history of our brand," said Winkelmann.
The interior has also been completely revised with a clear focus on weight reduction. The new sports bucket seats and the door panels are made of carbon and the interior's lightweight design excludes an infotainment system (available as no cost option), carpets and certain noise insulation parts.
Also new is the electromechanical Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), which variably adapts the steering ratio to road speed and to the dynamic mode selected. Specially tuned for the Superveloce, it ensures even greater stability at high speed, while making it significantly easier to maneuver at low speed.
The Aventador Superveloce sells for €327,190 (£237,937; $365,635) excluding VAT, and will hit the market in Spring 2015.
