Lamborghini Aventador SV Races Tuned Aventador at Vmax200, Which One Is Louder?

Let's say you've spent $400,000 on a Lamborghini Aventador and want to enjoy your investment happily ever after. Alas, the consumer world we live in won't allow you to do that for too long, as specials such as the Aventador Superveloce will show up.

So, what can you do to keep up? Well, the aftermarket world offers tons of solutions, with most owners going for the lightweight exhaust-wrap-and-maybe-wheels approach.

Sure, such a pathway won't make your Aventador go round the Nurburgring in under 7 minutes like the Superveloce, but, if anybody made a survey on SV owners, you'd easily be convinced such a feat isn't necessary.

Nevertheleless, when it comes to putting on a show, which, if you ask us, is the primary mission of any Sant'Agata Bolognese machine, tuning exhaust can rival and even best the hardware on the SV.

The video below, which takes us to the recent Vmax200 high-velocity event in the UK, comes to demonstrate that. Among others, the speed festival was a good occasion for an Aventador SV to drag race a "standard" Lamborghini Aventador that had been gifted with a custom exhaust and perhaps an ECU remap.

The two duked it out on the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground's runway, which meant the driver had two miles to attend their business - mind you, this length also includes the deceleration distance.

The piece of footage below allows us to see the two V12 Raging Bulls going at it, while also providing delicious individual soundtrack samples for each of the cars. And, as we mentioned in the title of this story, we're asking you to be the judge of this aural competition.

P.S.: Yes, this is the event that saw a Koenigsegg One:1 hitting 240 mph, so you shouldn't wonder why the SV owner tried to improve his trap speed by covering the panel gaps on his supercar.
