Chris Brown apparently has developed a taste for cars produced by Lamborghini. Just recently, the pop star published two pictures of the new Aventador LP750-4 SV on his Instagram account.
While people could naturally think Brown just borrowed or leased the car, one look at Brown’s collection of cars says that it is highly possible that he owns the Aventador SV. In any case, the Aventador SV in Brown’s Instagram account is identical to the prototype unveiled by Automobili Lamborghini at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show just recently.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce is, in every aspect of its design, a true Lamborghini in a purist sense. It features lower body weight than its predecessors. This low weight made it possible for the engineers to uprate the Aventador’s power, and to optimize its aerodynamics.
One can see the mark of a Lamborghini in the new Aventador SV – it has superiority in dynamics, and features precision in handling and driving. This is all possible thanks to the carbon fiber monocoque that the Aventador comes with.
The material is molded with lightweight aluminum frames as well. Carbon fiber also features prominently in various parts of the car including the door panels, the rockers, fenders, the fixed air intakes and the rear wing. The engineers’ focus for weight savings is also evident in the car’s interior.
In addition to the door panels, Lamborghini’s designers have opted to fit the Aventador SV with carbon fiber bucket seats as well. They have also removed the infotainment system, carpets and noise insulators in the new Aventador in order to further save weight. However, the infotainment system is available as a no cost option.
The result is a powerful supercar that weighs only 1,525 kilograms or 3,362 pounds. This means that the design saves a total weight of 50 kilograms or 110 pounds. This results to an improved power-to-weight ratio of 2.03 kilograms/horsepower, which is a 10% difference from earlier models.
This translates to excellent acceleration, and also has effects on dynamics and braking as well.
In addition, the Aventador SV is fitted with a redesigned 6.5-liter V12 engine. The new engine can produce a maximum of 552 kW or 750 hp at 8,400 rpm. The engine is coupled with a new lightweight exhaust system as well, resulting to an engine that’s very responsive to user stimuli.
Lamborghini has also taken care to optimize the new Superveloce’s Variable Valve Timing and Variable Intake System. This gives the Aventador SV excellent torque curves at high revs. The optimization gives it a max toque of 690 Nm at 5,500 rpm.
The engine’s top speed is achieved at 8,500 rpm. The engine sound is an integral part of user experience when driving super cars like the Aventador Superveloce. The powerful 12-cylinder engine just gives out a low rumble when driving casually in crowded cities.
However, when you put the floor the pedal, you are rewarded with the satisfying scream of gears spinning at maximum rpms. This is all thanks to the brand-new exhaust system with lower back pressure, coupled with the Lamborghini ISR transmission and its quick gear shifting capabilities.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 also features a Haldex Generation IV coupling system. The system can electronically distribute torque between the front and rear wheels. This system is capable of efficiently issuing the needed torque in response to the situation.
The car’s dynamic performance is even enhanced by differential locks at both the rear and front axles. The rear axle difference is self-locking, while an electronic lock coupled with the ESP governs the front differential.
For a more personalized driving experience, Lamborghini allows drivers to customize the vehicle’s characteristics according to his preferences. This is because the Aventador SV features a Drive Select system with three modes – Strada (road), Sport and Corsa (race track).
