Amazing looks, an incredible engine, and a massive grip mean the hardcore Aventador SV is one of the most powerful Lamborghinis – or may be the best ever.
Keeping the repute and the theme that elevated the brand to the top, it's just how a dream car should be. The new Lamborghini Aventador is a mix of old-school charm, huge power, and modern technology.
At FAYVO, where we love to catch up with the latest entertainment options and keep up with the trendy styles, our car club fans are not ignored as well. Being a car enthusiasts, we understand the urge to know the details of any advanced car released on the market. So, why not? Let's talk about this beast: Lamborghini Aventador SV!
SV – Superveloce simply means fast in speed, although Lamborghini itself means extreme speed. Either way, it sounds classy in Italian. The term Superveloce was first used in the year 1971 for Miura, didn't use for the model named Countach, and again it was used for Diablo in 1995.
In the 21st century, Lamborghini is counted under the Volkswagen Auto Group. In this class, German engineering and Italian designs are combined together to produce some of the most successful vehicles for the people. It is a great merger of both countries. From being drawn on paper to converting everything into digital space, car manufacturing has evolved a lot.
Let's Start: What are the REAL facts about the standard Aventador?
On paper, the Aventador SV seems to tick every supercar box. From getting the carbon chassis to pushrod suspension, and everything else, but it is real, this Lamborghini is a low car and packs a storming 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 kicking out the best part of 700bhp.
Other than this, the car has a wobbly feeling when driving at higher speeds. For those, who know how to ride the fastest Lamborghini cars, it is a little disappointing on track. Also, the car's single-clutch gearbox is slower than human evolution.
In short, it's an epic experience but can't hold a candle to Ferrari's F12. Here we have listed down a few pros and cons of the great Lamborghini Aventador SV. Have a look:
- Outstanding acceleration
- Astonishing grip and cornering feature
- Limited numbers make it rare
- One of the last N/A V12s
- Exterior is amazing
- Seats are intolerably stiff
- Transmission is still jolty
- No room for storage or navigation in the cabin
What's new in the Lamborghini Aventador SV?
This car is a tried and tested package of less weight. It holds around 50kg for a 1625kg total. Aventador SV delivers more aero up 170%, mainly due to the manual adjustment three-position wing. The engine is super powerful, so it is optimized to hit harder at the top end, where it delivers 740bhp. The car reaches from 0 to 62mph in 2.8sec, and the top speed is electronically limited to 217mph (350km/h).
The tires are tailored to have more grip. Thus they are sticky Pirellis wrapped around center-lock wheels. Because of this formation, the pushrod suspension gets adaptive dampers for the first time. With that, there is twirl-reducing electrically-assisted variable-ratio Dynamic Steering as standard.
Inside the engine, you'd get exposed carbon, grippy racing buckets, and flashes of the special carbon material. It is lightweight leather.
Is Lamborghini Aventador SV a good car?
The Lamborghini Aventador SV is one of the best supercars you can buy. It is undoubtedly amazing and gives you all the things you look for in a supercar.
In fact, it looks and sounds like you are an in a super-advanced sci-fi flick. It might look like it has everything built on the latest technology, but under the Lamborghini Aventador's shimmery carbon fiber skin sits some rather old-fashioned technology. For that, use a power-boosting turbocharger or a clever hybrid system, as you'll find in a Koenigsegg. It is superb, and it's a 6.5-liter V12 engine relying on raw size to pump out 740hp.
Similarly, if we talk about the gearbox, it isn't a fancy double-clutch unit like the ones you get in a Ferrari or McLaren. But the Lamborghini Aventador gives you a smaller, lighter, robotized manual unit. It is a traditional manual gearbox with hydraulic levers doing the job of your left hand.
The positive thing is that there's no clutch to worry about, and gear changes happen really quickly. It is faster than a blink but feels jerky at slow speeds. But for those, who are here to go 220lm/h, it won't bother them much.
In fact, you'll be interested in the Lamborghini's speed gain is exactly the same as a McLaren 720S and aptly named Ferrari 812 Superfast. The Aventador's grippy four-wheel-drive system and huge tires make it a really good car that can conjure up traction in slippery conditions, too. And it is surprisingly among those few ground-hugging supercars that are available with such advanced features.
Unlike almost every other powerful automobile on the market, the Lamborghini's engine is naturally aspirated. This helps it stand out among others, and all this means the Lamborghini Aventador isn't particularly intimidating to drive but to get a ride as well. The interior is designed smartly by placing all the switches and buttons in a good manner. The central touchscreen infotainment system and digital driver's display are not so different and are similar to those you'll find in a high-spec Audi.
One drawback of the new Lamborghini is its uncompromising looks and thus very firm suspension. Unlike the new flexible cars, including Ferrari 812 Superfast and McLaren 720S, Lamborghini's Aventador SV is not a car you'll want to drive across Europe. For people, who want to buy a car and drive in the smooth regions, or if you're looking for a stunning-looking weekend supercar that's extremely fast yet relatively easy to drive, the Lamborghini Aventador is one of the best on the market.
What does the Lamborghini Aventador SV has got as compared to the standard Aventador?
Well, why would anybody go for s new car it is, has the same specs? That's why now we will discuss what the standard old model doesn't have. So, after driving the test car, we have come up with the following points.
To be honest, the weight difference is negligible. The driver's seat and the front area have a more focused appearance, which doesn't allow the distractions to occupy you and lets you concentrate on the job at hand. Namely keeping this V12 huge on the straight and narrow.
There are new styled carbon shell bucket seats, carbon door panels with leather straps for handles, and a solid carbon fiber roof that pops off. It also fits in neatly and quickly in the front boot, leaving room for your favorite piece of A4 paper.
The amazing alteration of adding the manually adjustable rear wing and fang-like front intakes. They are made up of carbon fiber, too. Basically, there's a lot of carbon fiber in this Lamborghini's new model.
However, the carbon-ceramic brakes are standard. They are as adaptive dampers. The car has an advanced pushrod suspension, and Lambo's 'LDS' variable-ratio steering system makes it better than the standard one.
As a result, the Lamborghini Aventador SV weighs 50kg less than the standard Aventador Roadster.
Lamborghini Aventador SV Specs: In detail
Performance and 0-60mph time
The car is ferocious in speed. It dips below the all-important 3-second mark on the 0-60mph sprint, producing a roaring exhaust note as it does so.
Engine and gearbox:
Six and a half liters capacity having twelve cylinders and an automated manual gearbox is what makes it a dream car. The engine is its best when you're flat out. All the essential Lamborghini ingredients are improved with advanced technology touch.
Ride and handling:
A hugely stiff structure contributes to a sublime chassis with a tremendous grip. The car performs better on smooth roads than bumpier ones, and their width can be fierce.
Mileage and running costs:
This model is economy friendly, as its cylinder shuts off under light load. Lamborghini has given this exception while all its rivals go turbocharged. Still, it drinks a lot of fuel due to the powerful engine, and that's why servicing won't be cheap either.
Prices, specs, and rivals:
The models competing with Lamborghini Aventador SV have few true rivals since cars and automobiles at this price range offer a diverse range of features and talents. This one is better than all, of course!
Interior and tech:
The awkwardly postured firm seats and limited headroom make it more like a jet fighter-style cabin. The outdated infotainment system doesn't match the glittery exterior.
The Final Words.
According to the specifications, details, design, and engine power, Lamborghini Aventador SV is the best Lamborghini we've driven for ages, quite possibly the best ever. Yes, it has its drawback and a few issues, but they are very few as compared to the overall performance and looks of the car.
We give it 9.5/10 not because it's the fastest or the most powerful, but because it's also not very expensive. At £315,000, the Aventador SV has occupied a big market.
It's an adventure to try a car that's actually happy to open up to anybody, no matter what level of driver they are.
