The Murcielago LP670-4 SV is said to produce 661bhp (the name once again denoting PS rather than horsepower), a healthy 30bhp more than the current LP640 (pictured) and even better when mated to the 100kg the SV will apparently drop from the 1665kg standard car. It means the 0-60mph sprint drops to 3.2sec and top speed rises to 213mph.
As the -4 suffix suggests, the car while remain all-wheel drive. Carbon ceramic brakes are said to be standard fit, too – probably helpful when it comes to hauling in a ton and a half of hypercar. Styling is likely to be much more aggressive to mark out the more hardcore Murcielago, with liberal use of carbon fibre and matte black paint suggested. Let’s hope a big SV vinyl will be on the options list like it was with the stripped-out Diablos. Inside, expect a mix of carbon fibre and alcantara.
