Undoubtably one of the worlds greatest hypercars, manufactured between 2009-10 only 186 of these wild looking cars were ever produced making them a prudent investment for those people who could afford the £270,000 price tag, the SV’s beautiful V12 produces 661 hp and 490 lbf·ft of torque, the car’s weight was also reduced by 100 kg over the standard Murcielago through extensive use of carbon fibre inside and out.
The SV produces a power-to-weight ratio of 429 bhp per ton, included in the extensive list of standard equuipment were the LP 640’s optional 15-inch carbon-ceramic disc brakes with 6 piston calipers. In its June 2009 issue, it’s been estimated that the LP 670–4 SV is capable of accelerating from 0- 62 mph from a standing start in just 2.9 seconds and on to 120 mph in 7.4 seconds and on to a top sped of 212 mph, this is a truly epic car.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SV
We started with the car in the usual fashion, using the normal procedures to ensure that the car was completely free from any contaminants.
Snow foam being left to dwell to soften any road grime.
Once the de contamination process was completed the car was transferred inside to get it dried off and inspect and take paint readings.
Plenty of swirls evident in the black trim.
Plenty of swirls in the cars paintwork too!
On inspection, the car had signs that it had been machined before, the paint readings showed very little of the clear coat had been compromised but on some of the cars cleaner edges there were definite signs that someone had machined the car before, these cars are full of awkward angles, and are obviously extremely low, thankfully the lift I have in the workshop comes into it’s own when working on this type of car.
Paint looking so much better, look at the carbon weave!
The carbon weave showing through the paint, The paint on this car was to receive what I feel is the very best paint sealant on the market today Gtechniq’s Crystal Serum, this was to be used on the cars paintwork, but we also have ppf on the front of the car and un coated carbon on the engine hood, so Gtechniq Exo was used on the ppf panels with Swissvax Opaque proving to be the perfect partner for the un coated carbon, and last but not least Gtechniq C5 for the cars massive wheels!
Beautiful carbon ceramic brakes, rims protected with Gtechniq C5
The flake in the cars paintwork showing nicely.
One word - stunning.
The cars beautiful massive rear end
This one was a real pleasure to detail
