Devil In Details
The front end boasts with the modernized bumper with large air intakes and splitter. Predatory and aggressive headlights combined with a relief cowl create an amazing picture. The slope of the windshield and numerous aerodynamic elements tell us that the car could easily penetrate the air flow, overcomes wind resistance due to excellent aerodynamics.
On the side, we could see not only a huge radius of the wheel arches, and on the special side skirts, gigantic air intakes, located directly next to the rear wheel arches. They lurk alloy wheels on low-profile tires of a unique design. Around the perimeter of the body, including the front portion is applied a large amount of carbon. From it, by the way, is completed the new exterior mirrors.
In the rear, the supercar got a new bumper with a huge diffuser, rear wing, the position of which is controlled by increasing and decreasing the downforce, and four pipes coming from the exhaust system. They all together are located right in the center of the rear.

There is so much carbon fiber in the cabin of Aventador. However, the 2017 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV has even more. And it did not create a feeling of saturation with this product, but only further emphasized the sports car’s features. Dashboard has a separate sensor, indicating a G-force. Obviously, the manufacturer was guided by the top speed and better dynamics, and therefore it was decided to get rid of some unnecessary accessories.
For example, there are no mats, insulation became a little bit worse, because the part of it is thrown out. But most importantly, as standard equipment removed infotainment system in order to weight reduction. To the delight of many potential buyers, media can be returned, but for a surcharge. The car is designed for speed, and therefore a lot of traditional entertainment “chips” is missing here, so as not to distract the person from driving.
Modernization and weight reduction procedures have reduced car weight to 3362 lbs (1525 kg), so the car has “lost” 110 pounds (50 kilograms).
Under the hood is located turbocharged twelve-cylinder gasoline engine with a displacement of 6.5 liters. Yes, the same engine is on a source model. It’s earlier output was 700 hp, but now its 750 horsepower.
A solid increase in power achieved through the introduction of new settings in the intake system, install a completely new exhaust system, as well as some adjustments to the timing phase. As a result, maximum torque increased to 508 ft lbs (690 Nm).
It is impossible not to note the fact that the car is all-wheel drive, and in the basic equipment manufacturer provides high-performance carbon-ceramic brakes. Plus, it goes with adaptive dampers suspension.
