V12 supercar will produce 35bhp more than standard; expected to increase top speed beyond 220mph
20 May 2016

The Lamborghini Aventador SV has been cranked up to produce 775bhp by German supercar tuning company Novitec, which makes it 35bhp more powerful than standard.

Torque has also been increased from 509 to 544lb ft.

Novitec has not confirmed performance figures for its Torado SV but the extra power from the 6.5-litre V12 engine is expected to push the top speed beyond 220mph and improve the already rapid 2.8sec 0-62mph time.

Additions to the SV include a new exhaust system available in stainless steel or F1-inspired Inconel, the latter saving 21kg over the standard model’s system. The Torado SV also features a new carbonfibre aerodynamics package, including side panels, boot lid, roof air scoop, side air intakes and rear wing.

Novitec’s version of the Superveloce sits on 20in NV1 Vossen alloys at the front and 21in alloys at the rear, offered in 48 different colours. The suspension system drops the SV a further 35mm.

Prices for the Novitec Torado SV have not been confirmed but the standard model from Lamborghini is priced from £321,743.

The tuning company modifies Lamborghinis as part of its Torado line. The company also works with Ferraris through its Rosso line, Maseratis through Trident and Rolls-Royce models through Spofec.

Novitec Torado’s next project will be to tune a Huracan LP 580-2.

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.
