Rumor: Lamborghini Murcielago SV to debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on January 27, 2009

As the lifecycle of the Murcielago supercar by Lamborghini draws to an end, designers plan to make public a lightened variant that comes with even more potency compared to the Reventon's 641hp (478 kW). Anticipated to put on the legendary 'SV' title, employed for the Diablo previously, the new version will weigh lighter than the stock version by up to 220lb (100kg).

The most current reports from insiders, hint that the car's development may point to a debut as early as in March's Geneva Motor Show. There are no fresh information on the SV with the current time frame, though there is new talks that the vehicle could be named SL (superleggera) rather than SV (super veloce).

The label "superleggera" has been employed on the Gallardo lately, even though the SV tag has also been used in both the Diablo and the Miura beforehand.

Earlier facts on the vehicle came from a source inside Sant'Agata who had an interview with AutoWeek. It was revealed by the insider that the new vehicle would most probably be RWD, getting rid of the front differential and driveshafts to reduce weight, and highlight lots of carbon-fiber.

Similar to the Superleggera, designers will concentrate on the chief three aspects of interior, exterior and mechanicals. Replaced with carbon, the interior will be totally stripped out, as well as the center console, innards of the doors, and also the seats.

 The adaptable spoilers will be substituted with a rigid carbon GT wing, and the stock wheels will be exchanged with units that are forged and lightweight. Upgraded for quicker shift times, the E-gear will be standard, and magnesium parts will replace many of the stock aluminum components.
