Whatever you can do, it’s probably not as exciting as what you could do if you have a gorgeous Lamborghini Aventador SV at your disposal. In this beast of a car, you could do an entire lap of Germany’s notorious Nurburgring circuit and still have a second to spare. That’s right, the Lamborghini Aventador SV can tear up the track in just 6 minutes 59 seconds.
If you don’t believe us, and we wouldn’t blame you, then check out this thrilling video on the Lamborghini You-tube channel, which documents the incredible lap time.
As the article in Top Gear explains, the Lambo’s time is “twenty-six seconds faster than a Mercedes SLS Black Series. Twenty-five seconds faster than the Ferrari Enzo and ‘standard’ Aventador. Eight seconds faster than a Nismo GT-R, and just two seconds shy of a Porsche 918 Spyder”.
Even factoring in things like differing conditions and drivers, this is a pretty incredible result. It’s a testament to the hard work Lamborghini have put into fine tuning this super-fast car. The SV boasts as highly tuned 6.5 litre V12 and lightweight exhaust system, producing a whopping 740BHP. It’s also lost 50kg, which is in part due to ultra-light carbon seats, a distinct lack of carpet and no fancy extras like a radio. Combine this with some exterior styling tweaks to enhance the aerodynamics and you have an insanely fast car – just watch the video to see this for yourself.
