Watch: Lamborghini Aventador SV Laps the 'Ring in Under 7 minutes

740HP N/A V12 Lambo joins elite sub 7-minute club

Another supercar now claims to have lapping the Nürburgring below the elusive 7-minute mark. In a new YouTube video, Lamborghini shows its Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce completing the Nordschleife circuit in exactly 6:59:73 during a development test.

Lamborghini joins Porsche and McLaren in making such claims. A few years ago, the Porsche 918 clocked an incredible 6:57 around the track, and McLaren also released a video that alleged its P1 completed a lap in under 7 minutes. Unlike these two cars, however, the Lambo boasts a more powerful V-12 engine instead of V-8 engines paired with electric motors.

The Lamborghini Aventador SV, which debuted at the Geneva motor show earlier this year, is equipped with a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 engine that delivers 740 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed automated manual transmission and a permanent all-wheel drive system. Lambo claims a 0-62 mph time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of more than 217 mph. In the video, the SV gets up to about 200 mph.

Watch the full video below to see and hear the Lamborghini Aventador SV in all its glory on the 'Ring.
