The 2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV (abbreviated as Aventador '16; spelled in-game as 2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV), is a mid-engine, all-wheel drive supercar that appears in Forza Horizon 3 as a VIP Membership-exclusive car and in Forza Motorsport 7.
When you add SV to an LP750-4 you are getting a lighter and more powerful Aventador. Lest one forget that an Aventador is already a top shelf AWD V12 powered raging bull. There is little more to say that this car does not make clear upon a first impression and a mild awareness of its heritage. However, if you are a numbers driven aficionado try on 740 hp, 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, 186 mph in just 24 seconds and a top speed of a blistering 217 mph. If that isn’t amazing to you, consider the fact that the Aventador weighs in at more than 4,000 pounds. You don’t have to be a math wizard to realize this is a supercar of epic proportion. Better yet, just skip the math and let your right foot discover a new way to send a thrill up your spine, drive it!
The Lamborghini Aventador SV uses an updated 6.5 L (6,498 cc) V12, with the power output increased to 740 hp (552 kW). However, torque output has remained virtually the same. The car has also received an updated appearance, including the extended usage of carbon fiber both on the inside and outside, saving up to 185 lb (84 kg) from the base model, although the Aventador SV is still considerably heavy, weighing up to 3900 lb (1769 kg) in real life and 3868 lb (1754 kg) in the Forza renditions of the car. The redline is set at 8,500 rpm, with the fuel cutoff at 9,250 rpm, increased from the 9,000 rpm fuel cutoff for the normal Aventador.
The Aventador SV also receives aerodynamic improvements, with a revised front splitter and rear diffuser with a new rear wing; the amount of downforce generated has been increased by 180%. The Aventador SV now features better driving dynamics, with a new, enhanced electronic steering (dubbed "Lamborghini Dynamic Steering") for high speed maneuverability, magnetorheological pushrod suspension to improve handling, and a revised, more rigid chassis.
The Lamborghini Aventador SV's performance has been updated, with the 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) sprint lowered to just 2.7 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.9 seconds, 0 - 186 mph (300 km/h) in 24 seconds, and a top speed still "somewhere in excess" of 217 mph (350 km/h), which the Forza versions of the car exceed; the Forza Horizon 3 rendition of the car hits 237 mph (382 km/h), while the Forza Motorsport 7 rendition hits 228 mph (367 km/h).
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV is a greatly improved version of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, with improvements in handling, launch, acceleration, and braking. The SV's rear wing acts as a downforce generator to increase grip around corners and braking efficiency. Despite the in-game stats saying otherwise, the Aventador SV actually accelerates more quickly and handles better than the regular Aventador. The increased power over the LP 700-4 results in a higher top speed of 237 mph (382 km/h) (only reachable in Forza Horizon 3, where in the Hot Wheels Expansion, it can be further increased to 249 mph (400 km/h)), thereby resulting in the Aventador SV being the fastest Lamborghini production car by top speed in the Forza Horizon series. In the Forza Motorsport series, the Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 holds this title, with 232 mph (373 km/h).
In Forza Horizon 3, the Aventador SV, with a weight of 3868 lb (1754 kg), is heavier than the Aventador LP 700-4; logically, the weight of the latter would have been set to 3978 lb (1804 kg).
As of Forza Motorsport 7, the Centenario, based on the Aventador SV, also now weighs 3889 lb (1764 kg), making it heavier than the Aventador SV. According to the Centenario's forzamotorsport.net description, it weighs 11 lb (5 kg) less than the SV, which logically would have set the SV's weight to 3900 lb (1769 kg), given that the Aventador LP 700-4 now weighs 4085 lb (1853 kg).
Contrary to its real life rendition, the Aventador SV's display does not fit on its dashboard. This error is also seen on the Aventador LP 700-4, Centenario, and Veneno.
In Forza Motorsport 7, the Aventador SV is one of a handful of cars that can be customized with safety lights, available as a customization for the side skirts.
