SV models as well as the more recent Gallardo Superleggera, engineers will focus on three main areas: interior, exterior and mechanicals. The interior will be stripped out and replaced with carbon-fiber.The back in incredibly aggressive. Although the tail housing remains the same, the bumper protrusions are significant – think Gallardo SL. There is a choice of a standard wing or a more aggressive wing. Standard wing takes top speed up to 342 km/h (2 more than the LP640). The larger wing limits top speed to 337 km/h. Extensive use of carbon fibre all around. The lower edges of the car will be a matte-black carbon fiber while the upper portions will be a gloss black. You can get a big “SV” on the side as an option. Carbon ceramic brakes are standard.
Looks-wise the car is quite aggressive. There are more angles to the front, and they have nicely incorported air intakes on the hood next to the A-Piller. The wheels are a new design and will be a shiny black – the design is nice; I don’t care much about the shiny black part. The side mirrors are also nicely redesigned. Proportions relative to the LP640 remain the same.
Interior of the car looks very nice. Extensive use of alcantara. Passenger side has choice of leather as well. Redesigned steering wheel.
Overall the car looks hunkered down and mean. Worldwide price benchmark used was 25% premium to the standard LP640 price.
Car will be officially announced in March 2009. First deliveries in June 2009.
