Lamborghini's efficiency measures lean towards light-weighting its cars. Such is the case with the Aventador Superveloce, but along the way to production it gained power and an adaptive suspension.
The Lamborghini may have been out since 2011, but the company keeps on finding ways to keep it fresh, be they special editions or completely reworked bodies.
For the 2015 Geneva auto show, Lamborghini brought out the LP 750-4 Superveloce, a new lightweight special edition.
The Lamborghini faithful will know that the number refer to the cars engine output and driveline, while Superveloce means the car has been lightened.
It is amazing that this relatively large supercar has such a short nose.
This car also represents the first time that Lamborghini has fitted a 12-cylinder car with an adaptive suspension, a system that uses electromagnetic technology to stiffen the dampers.
Behind the cabin sits a 6.5-liter V-12 producing 750 horsepower, that number fitting into the car's name.
The 4 in the name comes from the fact that this Aventador uses an an all-wheel-drive system.
More importantly, Lamborghini found a way to shed 50 kilograms over the standard Aventador, difficult when the adaptive suspension added weight.
The name of this edition, LP 750-4 Superveloce, is embossed on a badge mounted to the fender.
Lightweight materials, including the carbon fiber wing, play a part in lowering the weight.
The rear diffusor, also made of carbon fiber, helps funnel air from under the car.
The carbon-fiber wing generates 50 percent more downforce than with the standard Aventador.
Lamborghini managed to save weight in the cabin by using Alcantara seat covers rather than leather.
