Sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and admire someone else’s hard-earned money at work. SR Auto Group got their hands on #100 of 350 Lamborghini LP670-SVs out there in the world and added their own treatment. Can you really go wrong by going with a matte black treatment on one of the world’s rarest Italian supercars?

To go with the menacing flat black look, a set of 20-inch Pur Design One wheels were bolted onto the bull. The wheels aren’t overly flashy, and are probably a great option for those with a Lamborghini wanting something a little subtle yet sporty and classy. It sports a 12-spoke design with a concave style and this particular set was finished in a glossy black.

It’s not the orange and black Status design Murcielago, but it’s certainly an appropriately fearsome Halloween treat.

This past weekend the Lamborghini Super Trofeo racing series was in Belgium, running during the same weekend a the famous 24 Hours of Spa. Lamborghini race car manufacturer Reiter Engineering used this opportunity to debut its full carbon-bodied version of the new LP670-4 SV.

Dubbed the LP670 R-SV, the racing version is powered by the same 6.5-liter V12 engine as the street car with 670hp and 487 ft-lbs. Incredibly, as the SV is already a lighter version of the LP640, this race-ready version weighs even less, tipping the scales at just 2,535 lbs.

The LP670 R-SV is the followup the carbon-fiber Murciélago R-GT by Reiter and features a new suspension setup and improved steering thanks to an even wider track. The braking system has also been upgraded with carbon discs and pads and better air ducting to keep the brakes cool over long periods of time.

Reiter Engineering has built the car to meet FIA regulations so that it can qualify to race in the GT World Championship
