While Lamborghini only produced a limited number of Aventador SV models, that hasn’t stopped the owner of this example from making a series of significant modifications to the Italian supercar.
As standard, the 6.5-liter V12 of the SV pumps out 740 naturally-aspirated horses, more than enough for most owners but in a world where forced-induction and hybridized supercars from Ferrari and McLaren can now easily outperform the Aventador, is starting to appear underpowered. However, this Aventador could likely outsprint even the most potent of rivals, including the Ferrari SF90 Stradale.

A pair of turbochargers have been fitted to the powerful V12 and while we don’t know what company was tasked with installing them, the car apparently now churns out 1,250 hp. Making that figure all the more impressive is the fact that it was recorded at the wheels, meaning that the engine itself probably churns out more than 1,500 hp, approximately double the car’s original power output.
Making the supercar stand out from a ‘regular’ Aventador SV is a set of wheels from Strasse.
These wheels are known as the CL5R Ultralight Carbon Series and measure 20×9.5 at the front and 21×12.5 at the rear. They have a satin black center finish and are equipped with red rivets and the original Lamborghini centerlocks, also finished in red.

Equipping a car like the Aventador SV with aftermarket wheels can sometimes be seen as a little over-the-top but in this case, we think the new shoes suit the car quite nicely.
