2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV Starts at $493,095 in the U.S.

Lamborghini puts a price on the Bull’s head.

The 2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV made its official U.S. debut at the recent Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance this past weekend, and the automaker revealed official U.S. pricing for the car. Prices for the range-topping super-bull begin at $493,095, including the $3,700 gas-guzzler tax and a $3,495 destination fee — a whopping $95,595 bump over the price of a standard Lamborghini Aventador.

The SV is a stripped-out, track-ready variant of the Lamborghini Aventador. Introduced at the 2015 Geneva auto show, the LP750-SV gains a 49-hp boost over the base Aventador, pushing the 6.5-liter V-12’s output to 740 hp. Despite the extra grunt, the drag created by the aggressive aerodynamic parts mean the car’s top speed and acceleration stay the same, at 2.8 seconds to 60 mph and a top speed of around 220 mph. The SV has also gone on a diet, shedding over 100 pounds through the extensive use of carbon fiber, aluminum, and a revised titanium exhaust system. The SV adds magnetic ride control, allowing the chassis to keep up with the enormous speed, along with aerodynamic improvements increasing the overall downforce by 170 percent.

As strange as it might seem, the Aventador SV’s price can almost be considered a bargain, as this is the current production halo car for Lamborghini. Other halo cars from competing manufacturers all easily breach above the million-dollar mark, like the McLaren P1, LaFerrari, and Pagani Huayra. The Aventador LP750-4 SV’s performance and presence will be somewhat near these hypercars, but at less than half the price.
