• Lamborghini cracks the 7 minute Nurburgring laptime barrier with a 6:59.72 lap by the Aventador LP750-4 SV on Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires

      Absolutely incredible performance here from the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce. We all knew the Superveloce version of the Aventador would offer higher performance but cracking the 7 minute barrier on the Nurburgring Nordschleife while testing Pirelli P Zero tires is mind blowing.

      The Porsche 918 Spyder manages a 6 minute and 57 second laptime and that is a hybrid supercar more than twice the price of the Aventador. If you are looking for other production cars with officially recorded laptimes under seven minutes you have that car and now the Lamborghini Aventador SV on the list. That's it. Who knew a Lamborghini could look like a performance value?

      The Aventador SV shaves 110 pounds off the standard Aventador and also bumps power into the 750 horse range. The aerodynamics, suspension, and brakes are all updated. The SV model offers 170% more downforce than the standard Aventador and it shows.

      The Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the real deal ladies and gentlemen. Watch the video and see how incredibly well it hustles around the track (and how glorious it sounds while doing so).

        And no hybrid crap! This is how it should be done.

        I can't help but feel that the 918 lap must be sand bagged if this car is only 3 seconds off. Still a ridiculous achievement by any measure though, at 6:57 in the video he gets perilously close to that barrier. :O

        What makes this truly spectacular is not only the awesome driving (it almost looks like he is going in fast forward at some points) but that the Aventador does this without any fancy hybrid drivetrain.

        The Aventador is not exactly a lightweight either. Remarkable.
