2017 Lamborghini Aventador Lp750

The Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce has no carpet, sound deadening, USB ports, Bluetooth phone pairing, cruise control, nor any warn­ing labels. And sometimes—like whenever its cooling fans operate—it produces mechanical noises no car this costly should make. It approaches its mission with the same subtlety Donald Trump employs when talking immigration.

In other words, it makes no apologies for being what it is: A brazen exotic made for those who enjoy center stage và have the resources khổng lồ ensure they remain there. Did we mention it starts at $497,895?

We spent a total of 70 hours with the SV. In that time it defined itself as the Big Italian Cheese that Lamborghini wants it khổng lồ be. It is brash, unreserved, và charismatic, yet also very well-made & seemingly indifferent khổng lồ a sound flogging. Aesthetically, it manages khổng lồ be both ghastly và gorgeous. We want its phone number, badly, and we don’t want anyone khổng lồ know about it.

The Superveloce, a lightened and more powerful version of the four-year-old Aventador, is a very fine piece of gra­tui­tous­ness indeed. It was created as much for shoông xã value as for driving reward. If the standard Aventador leverages the corporate paradigm shift that began with the Murciélago back in 2001, then the SV yanks at it with a composite crowbar.

Unsurprisingly, it’s strikingly rapid. It will kiss 60 mph from a standstill in 2.7 seconds, storm the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at 136 mph, & stop from 70 mph in 147 feet. It generates 1.04 g’s around the skidpad và never acts as if it’s working khổng lồ persize any of these feats. It didn’t once hint that it wanted khổng lồ kill us, either.

Don’t misunderstand; it is not perfect. With Lamborghinis, particularly special models like this one, the line between glory and absurdity is a fine one, pocked with compromise. But even an imperfect Lamborghini is a savage machine capable of inducing equal parts giddiness và ­disbelief. It produced the latter quite ­violently, even terrifyingly, by spinning all four tires on dry, clean pavement only blocks from our quiet, suburban home. But a oto lượt thích this shouldn’t be driven with the fear of what might happen. It should be driven because of it.

At 3868 pounds, the SV carries 217 less pounds than the last standard Aventador we weighed. The engine cover, wing, air intakes, door panels, rear diffuser, and seat shells are all carbon fiber.

For the Superveloce, the big change to lớn the ­Aventador’s 6.5-liter V-12 is a freer-flowing exhaust. In combination with fresh calibrations for its variable valve sầu timing and variable intake system, output climbs khổng lồ 740 horsepower, up from the base car’s 691. Peak power is achieved 100 rpm below redline at a shrill 8400 revs. Torque remains 509 pound-feet at 5500 rpm.

That it is powerful is without doubt. That its power alone justifies its price is somewhat less clear. On mountain roads that were only semi-familiar, the Aventa­dor’s usability wasn’t as impressive sầu as that of some less-pricey equipment. In fact, the superior grunt of a Chevy Corvette Z06 is more effective on roads with blind corners where maximizing entry speed is neither prudent nor possible. On a racetraông chồng, where that concern vanishes, this drawbachồng would disappear more rapidly than fuel from the SV’s tank.

But not a single gas-station spectator will care or even attempt lớn understand such nuance. What they will notice is its size. There’s a lot of Lamborghini here. Despite sharing its 106.3-inch wheelbase with the Honda Civic, the SV’s low, wide proportions—và its massive overhangs—make it appear huge. It is wide. The same width, in fact, as a standard Ford F-250 pickup.

All of which, in combination with its shape & overall visibility, makes it a difficult machine to place on the road. City driving is attended by the constant fear of gnarfing one of its forged wheels on a hidden curb. On the open road, however, the view over the low hood is vast và the countryside flies by in uninterrupted majesty.

This, naturally, makes you want to drive sầu it right to lớn the icy, unforgiving limit. Its feedback, though, might give you other ideas. In practice, the steering is moderately weighted but lacks the granular feedbaông chồng of the best systems—think Porsđậy Cayman. The SV’s new electric power assist works with a variable-ratio mechanism in the column. The limits, especially as speed climbs, are high và press for more commitment. But their fuzzy edges diminish confidence.

Right: The SV’s controls are supposed lớn inspire fighter-pilot fantasies. Makes us think of our old Motorola RAZR flip phone. Go figure.
What the Superveloce will not vày, largely because its rear Pirelli P.. Zero ­Corsas are nearly four inches wider than its fronts, is oversteer. Barring senseless acts of pedal abuse, the rear tracks devoutly behind the front. And its single-clutch, seven-tốc độ automated-manual transmission feels, well, old. The long gaps between gears in stradomain authority mode are as unnatural as they are out of character in a car this focused. Of course, switching khổng lồ one of the other two modes (sport or corsa) increases shift speed, punches up throttle response, & stiffens the SV’s new magnetorheological dampers. Full-throttle shifts in corsa snap through the cabin with enough force to lớn visibly unnerve sầu Aventador SV virgins.

So effective sầu are the SV’s standard car­bon-ceramic brakes that stopping from 180 mph is like braking from freeway speeds in a Mazdomain authority MX-5 Miata. Inside, the base Aventador’s kiến thiết remains largely the same—minus some leather. It’s a bare-carbon experience on the doors, tunnel, & floor. An all-new và all-yellow instrument cluster displays gears & engine tốc độ most prominently.

The carbon shell-type seats laông xã any­thing resembling compliance, are too low for those of average build, & offer neither height nor seatback-angle adjustments. Your author sat on a booster cushion behind the wheel so that his ass—like his self-worth­—was artificially elevated.

On the scale of gr& driving tools, the Aventador ranks high. It is stupid fast, has world-class brakes, and makes fantastic grip. Its somewhat-elusive limits, however, keep it from rivaling the world’s most rewarding driver’s cars. Still, the Super­veloce is special. It is a car unencumbered by ubiquity, order, or anything resembling normalcy. It is, in other words, a Lambo.
