    After 7 years thats ALL...?
    So the NEW 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S was unveiled last night here in Seattle. Great looking car. I am still not a fan of the front that has some what more rounded edgeson the spoilers then the crisp defined edges of the "Last SV", the 2010 LP670-4SV.
    However of ALL things that BLEW me away was to my amazement...that after 7 years of development....the NEW "S' was NOT that much faster then the 670-4SV.
    The new car is 2.9sec in 0-62, while the 670-4SV is 3.0sec in 0-60. The top end of the 670-4SV is 213mph (with small wing) cant find a top end speed for the new S.
    The 6704SV was produced to the amount of ONLY 186 units WORLD WIDE with only 42 to the USA States. Currently less then 35 remain in the USA.
    The NEW "S" is way higher in production numbers as well as almost $200K more...looks a lot like the mass produced Aventdor and the Aventador SV, rounded lines, new style V12 block, different door opening angle, not a numbered plaque car and differnt exhaust note plus a lot more.
    LP670-4SV.. Less expensive, less produced numbers, true DNA Lamborghini V12 block (last car to have it), TRUE Lambo doors that go straight up (last to have it), crisp angle lines, REAL V12 exhaust note with body styles UNIQUE to ONLY the LP670-4SV, individual plaque numbered cars plus so much more..
    YEA..I guess I will stick with the "Last of the line" LP670-4SV collectible for down the road instead of the mass produced "another version" of the Aventador in a "S" skin.
    I guess, at least for me, NEWER is NOT always better
    PERFORMANCE C/D as tested:
    Lamborghini LP670-4SV
    0-60 mph: 3.0 sec
    Zero to 100 mph: 7.2 sec
    Standing ¼-mile: 11.2 sec
    Top speed (drag limited mfr's claim): 209-213 mph

    we're pretty far down the road of diminishing returns when it comes to what you can get out of a road legal performance car on treaded tires.

    Why do you compare the Aventador S with your LP670 SV? If you want to be faire, compare it with the Aventador SV. I think Lamborghini respresent the car as an evolution for the "first" model of Aventador, like back in Countach times LP400 into LP400S. Thats why they used the old fashioned S batch.

    Imo you cannot compare cars with age difference of 10 years. In the last 10 years Lamborghini multiplied their production numbers to be competitive!

    Without doubt my choice would be also LP670 SV but we should see both point of views.

    Even with the Aventador SV, wonderful though it is...I'd take the 670 SV all day. 670 may be a little flawed (things such as the seats sitting at an angle), it's just a bit of the old Lamborghini madness of old IMO ;). A 670 SV ranks high in my car wish list, an Aventador does not...

    FYI, the 670-4SV seats have 3 different manual bolt adjustments. They come angled back, however can be re-positioned forward by two more positions till completely straight up/down. This does however take a wrench and removing and replacing the bolt in the position bracket.

    MagneRide suspension is the key here, actually. Makes all the driving comfort and reduces lap time.
    Also increased chassis stiffness.
