The last Lamborghini to don the moniker of “Superveloce” was the Murcielago, which was introduced at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. A 6.5-liter V12 sat under the hood of this carbon fiber beast, and as Lamborghini’s website describes, it could accelerate to 62 mph from a standstill in a short 2.9 seconds.
For 2015 and 2016, Superveloce has returned to the marque in the form of an Aventador LP 750-4, and “super speedy” it undoubtedly is. But when compared to the Murcielago Superveloce, how does the new Aventador stack up?
Uploaded to Lamborghini’s Facebook page yesterday is a photo, below, breaking down the features that were either added or subtracted to create the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. As with the Murcielago Superveloce, the Aventador features an all-carbon-fiber monocoque, stripping down weight to increase speed potential. A “naked” interior, while still luxuriously filled with what appears to be Alcantara, means an infotainment center is nowhere to be found, but glimpses of the monocoque have been polished to show bare-bones-perfection.
Modifications to the exterior of this “essence of the Aventador” include new exhaust pipes, fixed air intakes, new engine bay cover and underbody optimization. All of this has taken the Aventador’s weight down from 3,472 pounds to 3,362, increasing its overall speed and performance by small, but substantial, increments.
But exactly which Superveloce is better? Check out the spec comparisons below, and let us know which you’d rather have in the comments below.
