An Epic New Look at the Lamborghini Aventador SV Nurburgring Lap Time

Lamborghinis are fast, that’s a given. The question with these cars becomes, just how fleet are they?

Well, the exotic Italian automaker’s Aventador LP 750-4 SV devoured the Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes, if just barely.

In fact, they claim this car circled the Nordschleife’s 13 miles of punishing pavement in a scant 6 minutes 59.73 seconds with driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel. Documenting this feat of high-speed driving and motorsports-grade engineering for all to enjoy, the company put together an epic video highlighting the accomplishment.

With a talented hot-shoe behind the wheel it’s not hard to imagine a three-wheeled rickshaw setting a record at the legendary Green Hell, but a driver can only work with what they’ve got. Fortunately the Aventador LP 750-4 SV is overflowing with speed-enhancing features.

For more stick than a bucket of super glue it’s equipped with all-wheel drive and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. MagnaRide shock absorbers provide an unrivaled combination of stiffness and compliance for tremendous flexibility in different driving situations. The car is built around a ridiculously lightweight carbon-fiber monocoque structure. Oh, and of course its V12 engine cranks out 740 horses (750 CV) and revs to 8,500 RPM.

If you haven’t already, sit back, hit play, crank up the volume on your speakers and let Lamborghini take you for a thrill ride. Best of all, it’s free.

    Very cool video - these tires are special. The SV is still single clutch? Ring vids are great. My fave is the Z28, yes not near the 7 min mark, but great to see an American handling so well plus it was a damp track.

      I can't wait for the ZO6 to run and the new Camaro SS if the Z28 had a dry track it would have moved up at least 10 positions on the top 100 list.
