Lamborghini has unveiled the LP 750-4 Superveloce at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. 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 front end of the car has been redesigned completely: a more ‘open’ view, with the forward-stretched line of the front skirt and two front wings – one in black carbon fiber and one in the car’s colour – generating significant downforce in the front of the car. This improves handling and stability, gives even more precise turn-in at high speeds and, in conjunction with the ABS, ensures a sensitive and accurate feedback from the steering. Larger front air intakes reflect the SV’s additional 50 hp and optimize brake cooling.
The rear of the car is redesigned with an open, exposed feel. Carbon fiber parts, many in visible black colour, contribute to weight reduction. The Superveloce’s extreme, lightweight character is immediately evident, with the complexity of the design clearly visible from both behind and above the car. A large rear diffuser on the underside and vertical fins improve the air flow from the optimized underbody.
The most obvious new element is a large racing-style rear wing which improves aerodynamic efficiency and generates additional downforce. It can be manually adjusted to three different positions to suit a driving style.
This is the first production car to feature Lamborghini’s innovative Carbon Skin material. Incorporating a highly specialized resin, the woven carbon fiber fabric is extremely soft to the touch, yet very hard-wearing. The Superveloce’s inner roof and parts of the cockpit are clad in this highly exclusive material.
The shells of the newly-developed sports seats are also made from carbon fiber with an upholstery in alcantara and y-shaped leather inserts.
The instrument cluster is entirely new. The new TFT screen is dominated by the color yellow, with an RPM shifting indicator in light blue, and a G-force indicator in the lower part of the cluster similar to racing cars. The launch color of the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 is the specially developed Rosso Bia, with black Alcantara in the interior. Five further colors are available with owners able to specify their cars to their own individual tastes, with virtually unlimited options under Lamborghini’s Ad Personam personalization program.
The price of the Aventador Superveloce is set at $366,465 USD, and the car will have its market introduction in late spring 2015.
