Lamborghini has unleashed the Aventador’s potential in a combination of engineering prowess, technological marvel and pure insanity.
Flipping through the release notes on Superveloce reads like the manual for an F22 Fighter Jet. There’s a certain brutality to how the car has been crafted to react on tarmac.
The Aventador Superveloce’s even-lighter woven carbon frame cradles an enhanced 552kW 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine that accelerates from a standstill to 100km/h in 2.8 seconds.
Inside, the barren carbon fibre cockpit provides little more than the essentials to point 1525kg into the next corner with pinpoint precision.
Climaxing in a top-speed over 350km/h while that corner approaches, fear should not be on the driver’s mind.
Six-piston carbon-ceramic brakes provide tremendous stopping power while individual pushrod suspension with magnetorheological dampers on each wheel actively monitor body roll and brake dive, keeping Aventador Superveloce’s body perfectly flat and controlled through the most harrowing of corners. Electromechanical Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) variably adapts the steering ratio, depending on vehicle speed.
Lightweight forged rims measuring 20-inch front and 21-inch rear are shod with Pirelli P Zero Corsa sports tyres, which provide the Haldex Generation IV all-wheel drive system on-road grip. A large rear diffuser on the underside and vertical fins improve the air flow from the optimised underbody, helping provide Superveloce with a 170 per cent increase in downforce over the standard Aventador.
The result of what Lambroghini has concocted here is their fastest ever production vehicle.
Lamborghini also reports the Superveloce is its most emotional car, although we’re not sure a person brave enough to explore the limits of this vehicle would be able to experience the emotions of ‘fear’ or ‘love for life’.
Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is as exciting in specification as it is in design. Somehow adding to the already gorgeous Aventador, Superveloce displays even more menace and intent to its posture. The optional central locking mounts for the wheels add to its motorsport aesthetic.
Available in late-spring 2015, the price of the Aventador Superveloce in Europe will start at EU327,190, though there’s no word yet on Australian allocation.
