The Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce debuted earlier this month at the Geneva auto show, but this weekend it will put wheels to American soil (or at least some highly manicured grass) for the first time at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.
If you forgot how big numbers work, let us throw some at you. Twelve, as in the number of cylinders; 6,500, its output in cubic centimeters; 740, the number of ponies in the barn; and 2.8, the number of seconds it takes to hit 62 mph. Throw 509 lb-ft of twist at it and drop 110 pounds from the standard Aventador. That’s what makes a Superveloce. Top speed is an insane 217 mph.
The Superveloce features Lamborghini’s pushrod suspension system. The adaptive Magneto Rheological Suspension counteracts body roll in the corners, as well as brake dive. The company’s Dynamic Steering system, meanwhile, adapts the steering ratio to the selected driving mode and road speed, working to achieve greater stability at high speed.
The 2015 Amelia Island Concours starts March 12 with the RM Sotheby’s sale preview, and ends March 16 with the Concours d’Elegance. General admission tickets cost $100. Visit our Amelia Island home page or ameliaconcours.org for more information.
