For those of you who might think that a standard Lamborghini Murcielago wasn’t fast enough, well your prayers have been answered.
Lamborghini just pulled off the covers of their latest road missile at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. It’s called the Murcielago LP670-4 SV.
The name is more than just a bunch of letters and numbers put together, as ‘LP’ stands for ‘longitudinal-posterior’ for the position of the engine in its bay, ‘670’ denotes its horsepower figure, ‘4’ is for four-wheel drive, and ‘SV’ stands for ‘Super Veloce’ or super fast in English.
Thanks to its diet (the SV is 100kg lighter than a regular Murcielago), it can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 341km/h. This is also the first time in Lamborghini’s history that an SV model will come with a six-speed, F1-inspired paddle-shift gearbox.
For all you supercar spotters, you can differentiate the SV from lesser Murcielago’s from its new nose, its wider exhaust, its transparent engine cover, and oh yes, that very large rear wing.
How much you ask? Well if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it.
