Lamborghini has released an onboard video showing the new Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce blasting around Nürburgring. The car – which premiered in Geneva – successfully clocked in 6:59.73 around the Nordschleife, and the SV joins the ranks of the Porsche 918 Spyder – which is only two seconds faster – and a limited number of production cars that have gone round the ‘Ring under the seven minute mark.

This test – done as part of the development of a new version of Pirelli’s P Zero Corsa road tyres – was conducted in collaboration with Pirelli, so the unknown driver could be one of the Italian tyre maker’s development drivers.

The SV’s 6.5 litre naturally-aspirated V12 offers 750 hp at 8,400 rpm, which is 50 more horses over the standard Aventador. The V12’s variable valve timing and variable intake system have also been optimised, so while max torque remains at 690 Nm at 5,500 rpm, the max engine speed has been increased to 8,500 rpm.

Performance figures for the SV, which is fifty kilos lighter than the LP 700-4. include a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 2.8 seconds and a 350 km/h top speed. Only 600 examples of the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce will be made for the markets worldwide, and five units are set for our market.
