The LP 670-4 SV…the fastest and most powerful Lamborghini ever made! I get goosebumps just thinking about this beast! Even though its name is a little bit hard to pronounce. If you like Italian super-cars with endless power and soul, than you’re gonna love the LP 670-4 SV.
I’m sure you’re wondering why they call it the LP 670-4 SV. So let me explain: The LP stands for Longitudinale Posteriore (which indicates the place of the engine: longitudinally mid-mounted), the 670 stands for the amount of horsepower, the 4 stands for four-wheel drive, and the SV stands for Super Veloce.
The base of the engine in the Super Veloce is the classic V12 that Lamborghini developed for the Muira. Thanks to a few tweaks, the 6.5 L V12 is now developing 661 bhp and about the same amount of Nm of torque. I can only think of one word which is worthy to describe this engine: masterpiece. Lamborghini used the bases of this engine for more than 40 years! I think that’s incredible. Unfortunately, the LP 670-4 is the last Lamborghini to have this epic engine, since Lamborghini developed on an all new V12 for the Aventador.
The chassis of the SV is almost completely carbon fiber. Lamborghini also stripped away all the unnecessary weight, which means that it doesn’t have a radio or satellite navigation, but it’s nearly a 100 kg lighter than the basic Murciélago! And thanks to all that, the Super Veloce is more quicker, and more dynamic than any other Lamborghini in the world. The Super Veloce looks wild in every angle.
0-100 is done within 3.2 seconds, top speed is about 340 km/h (212 mp/h), which is almost as fast as the Mercedes SLR 722 (a hyper car royalty) which, by the way, costs about $160,000 more than the LP 670-4 SV. As long as we’re on the subject, the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SV costs from $450,000 to $600,000 (depending on additional extras), and production is limited to 350 cars.
As many of you know, car brands give you a small piece of paper with a description about the car. If you bought a Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SV, you’re probably familiar with sentences like this: “The sounds from this exhaust range from the heavy rumble of a stormy night, through the trumpeting of mighty elephants to the roar of a raging lion.” After reading this very poetic description of the amazing sounds that come from the exhaust, you get the sense that Lamborghini wants this car to come alive, before this amazing car dies. I think that Lamborghini achieved what they’ve wanted. The Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SV is truly epic, and it’s a glorious end to the Murciélago production. This car is without a doubt, one of the all-time-greats.
I think that this car has more passion and soul than any other car in the world. And that’s why I absolutely adore this car, and I hope that so do a lot of people. So as always, please leave a comment and a request.
