GENEVA, Switzerland -More power, less weight, improved aerodynamics and innovative technologies - the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is said to be the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date.

There's also "the 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-focused, fastest and most emotional series production Lamborghini ever, its developers say.


The car lost 50kg through using lots of CFRP - carbon-fibre reinforced plastic - and the non-turbo V12 engine's power as been increased to 552kW... the latter giving a power-to-weight ratio of 2.03kg/0.75kW. The Superveloce accelerates to 100km/h in 2.8 seconds and powers on to more than 350km/h.

Stephan Winkelmann, president and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, said: "The new Aventador Superveloce continues the Lamborghini tradition of SV models pushing the performance and 'pure driving emotion' boundaries.

"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 clear. With technological features which combine with design, quality standards and craftsmanship, the Superveloce is the most exclusive, pure and emotional production model in the history of our brand."Keep up with the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show with Wheels24.
