[VIDEO] Is the Lamborghini Aventador SV the new “Ring King”? image

A video released by Lamborghini recently is showing us the Aventador SV lapping the Nurburgring in less than 7 minutes.

Old-fashioned naturally aspirated V12, no hybrid technology and no turbocharging. This is the Lamborghini Aventador SV, probably the last of its breed to get this configuration. But is it really that good? Well, apparently the answer would be “yes” because according to a recent video released by the Italian marque, the supercar has managed to take a lap around the Nurburgring in just 6:59:73. This isn’t really making it as fast as the current Ring King, the Porsche 918 Spyder, but placing it just a few seconds behind it and considering that we are talking about two very different supercars, hat off in front of the Lambo!

The Lamborghini Aventador Super Veloce has been officially presented to the public more than two months ago, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, in a premiere. The supercar is the spiritual successor to the Miura SV, the Diablo SV and the Murcielago SV and it has received enhanced electronic, upgraded dynamics, magnetic pushrod suspension and chassis improvements, along with the obvious changes made to its exterior. The carmaker says that the aerodynamic efficiency has increased by 150 percent and the downforce by 170 percent, compared to the regular Aventador. Power is being provided by a 6.5L naturally aspirated V12 engine, producing 750 HP (552 kW). This is allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds.
