When it comes to high-performance supercars, there’s no question about if these cars will be rare, but rather just how rare the automakers want them to be. In the case of the 2015 Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce, Lamborghini announced that it was limiting production of this lightweight, high-output Aventador to just 600 units – globally. After that, you’ll either have to settle for a standard Aventador or wait around for the 2016 Aventador SV Roadster.

Following its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, Lamborghini made the production announcement during the car’s Asian debut at the Shanghai Motor Show, which just happened to coincide with Lamborghini’s first 10 years of operation in China. Mirroring the sentiment of many luxury automakers, Lamborghini says that China is “one of the most important markets” for the brand, but the Lambo has yet to reveal what sort of Aventador SV allocation China or any other markets will be getting.

Just in case you’ve forgotten about the Aventador SV, the super Aventador is just the fourth Superveloce car in Lamborghini’s history, after the Miura, Diablo and Murcielago. This car definitely lives up to the name, though, with power increased to 740 horsepower, curb weight reduced by 110 pounds and a killer aero-tuned body.

Why it matters

Its limited production means that even if you can scrape together the $493,069, only 600 lucky souls will be able to claim ownership of a 2015 Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce, ensuring that this ultra-special Lamborghini remains ultra-rare.

LAMBORGHINI PRESENTS THE NEW AVENTADOR LP 750-4 SUPERVELOCE AT AUTO SHANGHAI 2015

Shanghai, 20, April, 2015 – At the 16th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, Automobili Lamborghini presents the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. Making its Asian debut, the AVENTADOR LP 750-4 SUPERVELOCE is the most sports-oriented, fastest and most emotional series model ever produced by Lamborghini, therefore giving a precise demonstration of Lamborghini’s brand values – Visionary, Cutting-edge, Pure. The car is limited to 600 units worldwide.

The HURACÁN LP 610-4, the successor to the iconic Gallardo, enters the same stage in Hall 6.1. Redefining the benchmark for luxury super sports cars in this segment, the Huracán has not only sustained the successful market performance of its predecessor, but is also destined to create a new legend.

The AVENTADOR LP 700-4 PIRELLI EDITION, which celebrates the long and ongoing collaboration between the Raging Bull and the prestigious Italian tire manufacturer, is also introduced for the first time to China at this year’s Auto Shanghai.

The year 2015 also marks Lamborghini’s 10-year anniversary of entering into the China Market, which remains one of the most important markets for Lamborghini worldwide.

"After the worldwide debut last March at the Salon de l’Automobile in Geneva, today we present here in Asia the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. This new car represents the perfect combination of Lamborghini’s expertise in lightweight engineering and sophisticated technical features. The new Aventador LP 750-4 is the most exclusive, pure and emotional car in our current model range," said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

The new Aventador Superveloce continues the Lamborghini tradition of SV models, pushing the boundaries in terms of performance and pure driving emotion. The weight has been further reduced by 50 kg through enhanced lightweight engineering, including significant use of carbon fiber. The naturally aspirated V12 engine’s power is increased to 552 kW/750 hp. This results in a power-to-weight-ratio of 2.03 kg/hp. The Superveloce accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and powers on to reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h (more than 217 mph).
