Murci, Murci Me: Lamborghini to unveil LP670-4 SV at Geneva
Lambo's performance engineers will do their best to counteract the Murcielago's Jurassic-age steel chassis by trimming weight in order to give the behemoth the Superleggera treatment it performed on the previous Gallardo. As previously reported, carbon fiber and magnesium are expected to be employed, along with removing some extraneous trim in the interior, to cut some 220-pounds from the stock Murcielago.
The lighter Lambo is also expected to get an upgraded engine, pumping out 670 horsepower -- 30 more than the existing LP640 thanks in part to a roof-mounted induction system -- and the SV will retain the big bull's all-wheel drive system (earlier speculation suggested that the car would in fact be rear-wheel drive). A choice of rear wings will be available, E-gear shift times have reportedly been halved to just 0.2 seconds, and gloss black forged alloys will be fitted, along with carbon-ceramic brakes to trim unsprung weight and increase stopping power. We should know more about the long-named Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce as we get closer to the Geneva show, so stay tuned.
