Spyshots: 2015 Lamborghini Aventador SV

The Lamborghini Aventador was already a very fast car when it was launched. Its 6.5-liter V12 engine producing 700 PS, it was a cut above even the most powerful version of the V12 car that came before it.

The V12 car we're talking about is the LP670-4 SuperVeloce, or SV for short. It arrived in 2009 with 30 more horsepower than your standard Murcielago and as a result of its lightweight construction could blitz the track at a much faster pace.

The Aventador wants to do some blitzing of its own, and so the Italian engineers recently arrived at the Nurburgring with this interesting prototype. At first glance, it looks like your "average" yellow supercar, but it could be the testbed for the next SuperVeloce.

The first clue is that the wheels are race-oriented central lockers wrapped in semi-slick rubber. It's also got new aero bits attached to the front bumper and a piece of metal attached to the middle of the rear wing.

The changes are so small that we actually didn't notice them the first time we saw the car go round the Nurburgring a couple of days ago. It was aggressively targeting the famous Karussell, scraping its underside in some place. What seemed to be a rich person not caring is actually a time attack attempt to see how good the Aventador SV is compared to the regular car.

If this were a VW Golf, we could expect to see it ready by Frankfurt, but since the Italians make one new V12 ever decade, we'll have to wait for the SV a bit longer.
