The Lamborghini Aventador has had several years on the market to break necks—both of passersbys and of drivers engaging Corsa mode—but now it's getting an even more extreme variant: the Aventador LP 750-4 SuperVeloce, or SV.
These official photos show that yes, Lamborghini can indeed take an extreme design and top it. With much more aggressive aerodynamics, a blazing red paint job, and 750 metric horsepower (hence the LP 750-4 title) from a 6.5-liter V-12, the Aventador SV is the latest track-honed weapon Lamborghini will offer to its patrons.
Called the EXP 10 Speed 6, the concept is said to be experimental in its design and has been revealed to gauge exactly what customers want from a Bentley sports car, as well as to get feedback on possible styling influences for all future models.
“It is one vision for Bentley’s future,” said company chairman Wolfgang Dürheimer. “It has the potential to be the pinnacle luxury two-seat sports car.”
Dürheimer said the sports car, due in the next three years, would be positioned alongside the Continental GT, suggesting a starting price of about £120,000.
“This is not just a new sports car concept but the potential Bentley sports car — a bold vision for a brand with a bold future,” he said. “It offers thrilling, driver-orientated performance, complete with trademark modern Bentley luxury and effortlessness.”
