Wheelsandmore Lamborghini Aventador SV La maXXina is Sharper Where it Counts
If you’ve managed to get your hands on one of the 1,100 Lamborghini Aventador SVs being built (600 coupes and 500 roadsters), you’re well aware of the fact that it’s one of the wildest and most potent machines ever to wear the raging bull badge. So how does tuner Wheelsandmore go about upgrading what’s essentially a pre-upgraded supercar? By focusing on the important stuff, that’s how.
Wheelsandmore didn’t really do a whole lot to the outside of this lusty Lamborghini; after all, it already has a boisterous body kit. The tuner did, however, add a black stripe with its name running along the top as well as – and more importantly, it must be said – a set of F.I.W.E. megalight wheels comprised of forged alloy centers bolted to carbon fiber rims. Those wheels are each a not-insignificant 4.4 lbs. lighter than the already feathery stock Aventador SV rollers, and combined with a handmade sport exhaust system that shaves off another 13.2 lbs., should make this extra-special SV (which Wheelsandmore calls the La maXXina, short for “maximum machine”) just a bit more agile when turning and braking.
As for more agility when accelerating, the company says the aforementioned exhaust system and an ECU tune conspire to bump the 6.5L V12’s output to 789 horsepower and 524 lb.-ft of torque. Wheelsandmore says there’s no improvement in top speed and only a 0.1 second reduction in the 0-62 mph time, but with a car that’s as extreme as the Aventador SV is from the get-go, such shortcomings are surely among the first of first-world problems.
