When creating the Aventador SV, engineers and designers at Lamborghini’s Centro Stile were tasked with improving the vertical downforce of the standard Aventador whilst at the same time enhancing aerodynamic efficiency and not having any evident impact on the car’s drag coefficient. As a result, overall aerodynamics have been optimized by 150% in terms of efficiency and gained a considerably higher downforce of 170% over the standard car.
To achieve this, the front end of the SV was completely redesigned. A more open view, with the forward-stretched line of the front skirt and two front wings – one in black carbon fibre and one in the car’s colour – generate significant downforce at the front of the car.
The rear of the car has also been redesigned with an open, exposed feel; a strong hint at the SV’s extensive weight reduction and extreme performance. A new, large, racing-style rear wing is has been added and can be manually adjusted to three different positions to suit various driving styles, whilst a large rear diffuser on the underside with vertical fins was added to improve the air flow from the aerodynamically optimized underbody.
The SV’s carbon fibre monocoque is visible in several places throughout its interior, including the centre tunnel and the sills, giving the entire interior a very purist look. The shells of the newly-developed sports seats are also made from carbon fibre with an upholstery in alcantara and Y-shaped leather inserts.
The instrument cluster is also entirely new. The new TFT screen is dominated by the colour yellow, with an RPM shifting indicator in light blue, and a G-force indicator in the lowest part of the cluster similar to racing cars.
