Everybody knows how Lamborghini started making supercars. A man called Ferruccio owned a tractor company. He got rich and bought a Ferrari. It kept breaking down. Ferruccio Lamborghini told Enzo Ferrari that his cars suck. Enzo said to Ferruccio that he’s a peasant and doesn’t understand cars. Ferruccio wanted to prove Enzo that he’s wrong. That pretty much sums things up.
With such a background, who would’ve wondered that the Bull would switch from manufacturing agricultural equipment to full-fledged supercars like the jaw dropping Miura, the Countach, Diablo, Murcielago and the current flagship - the Aventador? It doesn’t surprise us though. Churchill once said that a man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures.

Ferruccio was a man on a mission and he showed Fezza’s head, over and over again, that his humble, tractor making company is able to make things happen. V12-powered things, the latest of which coming in the form of the 2015 Lamborghini Aventador SV.

Yup, this is the real deal, ladies and gents, the Super Veloce we have been waiting for ever since Aventador production started 4 years ago. Our carparazzi spotted it while Lamborghini was shooting a promotional video in the warmer parts of Europe and that’s why it’s free of camouflage and looking showroom-ready.

As expected from the most extreme Raging Bull yet, a thumping great fixed rear wing joins a helluva lot of aggressive bodywork elements. As you can see in the spy photo gallery, downforce is the name of the game here. A lot of V12 thunder is also in store considering how menacing those exhaust pipes are sandwiched between the rear aerodynamic diffuser's Venturi tunnels. Yup, the single exhaust outlet was changed to a quad exhaust layout.

In terms of grunt, the 6.5-liter L539 V12 of the Aventador coupe and roadster has certainly been retuned for the Super Veloce. If the Aventador 50th Anniversario is able to churn out 720 ponies, the SV will certainly produce at least 750 Italian stallions. In the case of the now defunct Murcielago, the LP 640 made 640 PS (631 HP) and the Super Veloce outperformed it with 670 PS (661 HP).

With the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V12 lump being an all-new design, we do keep our fingers crossed a 50 horsepower increase over the standard Aventador LP 700-4 model is possible. The 2015 Lamborghini Aventador SV is expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

UPDATE: the Lamborghini Aventador SV color brochure has been sourced by Rosso & Black (pictured), Verde Ithaca & Black, New Giallo Yellow & Black, Bianco Isis & Black, Arancio Atlas & Black and Nero Aldebaran are the exterior combos you can opt for.
