The Nurburgring is a hairy piece of tarmac that has brought down many fast machines down to their knees. There happens to be a rare breed of hairy chested men though who have managed to tame what is also called the ‘Green Hell’. Then there is Sabine Schmitz, a 46-year old woman who has been gone around the track more than 30,000 times and has also earned herself the nickname, “Queen of the Nurburgring.”
We aren’t sure if anyone from that elite club of drivers is behind the wheel of this Lamborghini Aventador SV, but wearing OMP gloves, that person just elevated the Aventador SV’s name into a rare club of cars which have gone around the ring in less than 7 minutes. With a lap time of 6:59.73, the big Lambo is only two seconds slower than the Porsche 918 Spyder, which is a V8 + electric hybrid, while the SV is rocketed by an old-school normally aspirated V12.
The 6.5-liter V12 in the Aventador SV churns out 740 bhp of power at 8400 rpm and 690 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. The Aventador SV is also 50 Kgs lighter than the standard Aventador (LP 700-4), which makes do with “only” 690 bhp from the same V12. Lamborghini says that this 1.6-tonne SV will decimate the 100 km/h mark in just 2.8 seconds, while 200 km/h comes up in just 8.6 seconds! Top speed is rated at 350 km/h!
