The Geneva Auto Show, which opens for the media on March 3rd, is heating up, and more automakers are coming out of the woodwork with debuts for the show. One late arrival is Lamborghini, as the Italian supercar goliath has released a teaser video claiming that it’ll reveal “the most reactive car” in Geneva. While the video in itself is not too descriptive, combining it with recent rumors and spy shots shows that this may be the Aventador SV.
Lamborghini’s SV package, which stands so Super Veloce, typically leads to a lighter and more powerful model. For example, the Murcielago SV had 30 more CV and weighed 100 kg (220 pounds) less than the standard model.
So, how do we come to the conclusion that this is likely the SV version of the Aventador? Well, Lamborghini kind of gives it away with the jagged “S” that is uses in the video (below). That “S” is identical to the one used on the Murcielago SV and on the Aventador SV that I’ve seen spy shots of.
Given the history of the SV badge, look for the Aventador SV to carry at least 730 CV (720 horsepower), but maybe as much as 750 CV (739 horsepower), and weigh around 1,475 kg (3,252 pounds). This would almost certainly drop the Aventador’s 0-to-62-mph sprint time to the 2.8-second range and push its top speed nearer to 220 mph.
For now, this remains just speculation, but I think it is a near certainty that this is the Aventador SV. Stay tuned, as we’ll find out on March 3, 2015. We’ll bring you all of the latest once Lambo releases it.
