Superlatives are rather necessary to describe a Lamborghini, but they sure do apply every time. The latest beast from the famed Italian automaker is a V-12 powered Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce, and it produces 739 hp while being a leaner machine thanks to the use of carbon fiber.
Blistering fast is an understatement when it comes to the latest super sports car, and this one can get you 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds and top out at 217 mph. Lamborghini points out that in addition to the speed, the supercar is one of the “most emotional production” vehicles it will have on the market.
The Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce will make its debut formally at the Geneva Motor Show this week and then go on sale in Europe for around 327,000 euro in “late spring 2015,” according to Lamborghini.
The launch model will be in Rosso Bia color with black Alcantara in the interior. Five additional colors will be available for customers to choose from – in addition to other customized options from Lamborghini’s Ad Personam personalization program.
The use of carbon fiber in the Aventador’s body slims down its weight by nearly 50 kg (110 pounds), making it a leaner, more nimble exotic sports car.The newest Aventador arrives four years after the first model was rolled out and the company is intimating that it wants to appease the “passionate owners, as well as the fan community, whose enthusiasm has resulted in the biggest commercial success ever of a Lamborghini V-12 super sports car,” Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann said in a press release.
An infotainment system is included as a no-cost option upgrade, along with detailed bucket seats and door panels. The power to weight ratio was reduced and translates to improved “lateral dynamics and braking.”
The Aventador is equipped with pushrod suspension system with Magneto Rheological Suspension that adapts to road conditions and driving style. It is a new feature along with the electro-mechanical Lamborghini Dynamic Steering.
The car’s front end was redesigned with a nod towards a “more ‘open’ view.” Also new is the instrument cluster, which features a touchscreen with yellow color, an RPM shifting indicator in blue and G-force indicator in the lower part of the car, a feature found in race cars.
