The Lamborghini Aventador SV refuses to take the backseat. Despite the release of newer models like the Aventador SVJ, it continues to steal the spotlight!

The 2015 Geneva Motor Show can hardly be forgotten in the history of Lamborghini. The notable car event did the honors of ushering in one of the brand’s most popular models – the Lamborghini Aventador SV, into the market. Like a shining star, the SV came on to the scene and established itself as a force to reckon with. In a world where new car models are released on a daily basis, most of them are a flash in the pan. They enjoy their five minutes of fame before going into oblivion. The Aventador SV does not belong to that category, and it is unapologetic about it. Despite the emergence of the latest models like the Aventador SVJ, the SV continues to hog the spotlight. 


The SV's speed is not for the faint-hearted

Powered by a V12 engine, performance is something the Aventador SV can rightfully brag about. The grunt from its 6.5-liter capacity engine is not for fancy. It is followed by the high speed and road authority super drivers love when they are up for an adventurous ride. Its initial 690 hp was raised to a whopping 740 hp – stretching the car’s power and daring itself beyond limits.

The heavier the car, the more difficult it is to move freely. Aiming for unlimited body movements, Lamborghini dropped 50 kg from the Aventador SV’s weight. This was achieved with the use of carbon fiber in some of its body parts.

Expectedly, the SV shares some similarities with its fellow models on Aventador’s radar. But with its unique features like the custom splitter and front bumper, rear wing and new diffuser, it can be fished out among its mates. It proves to be more than a pretty face with a 159.2 mph top speed.

The latest Aventador SVJ might offer the excitement that comes with new models, but when that wears off, users might be tempted to fall back to the SV because of its unwavering reliability.
