Just when you thought the Lamborghini Aventador had been taken out of the spotlights by its fresher Huracan little brother, the V12 machine is ready to bite back with its upcoming Super Veloce (SV) version, one you can already... express your interest for.
This story started out with a team of the Gumball 3000 rally, who claims the Aventador SV will be released “in the coming months”. Moreover, the crew, who call themselves Team Salamone, brag they’ll be grabbing the very first unit.

We’ll remind you the Aventador’s predecessor, the Murcielago, received the Super Veloce treatment towards the end of its life cycle, so 2014 seemed a little early to us. We contacted a Lamborghini source and, to put is shortly, the Aventador SV is coming, but we have to hold our horses bulls for now.

Lamborghini dealers are currently taking deposits for the Aventador Super Veloce. For instance, in the UK, this means locking away GBP 10,000 (EUR 12,570 or USD 17,168 at the current exchange rates). Still, this is a refundable deposit, as the Sant’Agata Bolognese mother ship hasn’t offered the final confirmation for the model yet.

This means that, for the money, you put your name on the waiting list. Given the fact that the SV will be a limited edition model, you need to. Lamborghini won’t be as exigent in selecting its customers as Ferrari is with its limited editions, but this bit of kit definetly isn’t for everybody.

When the Aventador Super Veloce officially receives the green light (should we call this the Verde Scandal light?), the aforementioned deposit will have to triple its value. As for the exact timing, we were told to expect the meaner Aventador in the second half of 2015. Still, Lamborghini could hit us with a concept meanwhile.

We mustn’t forget the Italian automaker vowed to focus its performance increase on reduced weight a few years ago and the Super Veloce badge is perfect for that. Expect plenty of carbon fiber then. Judging by the hefty fixed rear wing on the Murcielago LP670-4 Super Veloce and the tons of such wings tuners have been gifting the Aventador with, we’re expecting the aerodynamic package of the Aventador SV to be lead by such an element. You can check out the rendering above for a few visual hints.

As for the power, the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V12 is an all-new development, so there’s plenty of potential for muscle hypertrophy. So far, the 700 hp naturally-aspirated unit has only been pushed to 720 horses on the Aventador 50th Anniversario.

These days the power war pressure comes from all sorts of places, with the 707 hp 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat being the latest example of that. This all means that only the Horsepower God knows what Lamborghini has in store for the Aventador LP***-4 Super Veloce’s engine bay.
