Motor Trend puts the Aventador SV through its paces to see how it stacks up against the latest batch of hypercars.

Motor Trend decided to start its new season of Ignition off with a bang and chose the best supercar to start a new season off with—the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV. Lamborghini may have sold a lot of its V10-powered supercars, but the automaker’s bread and butter lies within its V12-powered beasts.

Starting with the timeless Miura, to the poster-worthy Countach, to the menacing Diablo, to the drool-worthy Murcielago, to the flamboyant Aventador, all of the aforementioned supercars are brash, hairy-chested supercars that put the automaker on the map. However, while all of these supercars demanded respect and took up space on every enthusiast’s wall, the cars were never any good to drive.

Lamborghini hoped to change all of that and prove to the world that it can in fact make a driver’s car with the Aventador SV and Motor Trend’s back to see if the automaker succeeded. Thanks to the Aventador SV’s naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine that puts out 740 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque, the supercar is an absolute riot. But does it have what it takes to keep up with the latest hybrid-powered supercars.

After spending some time with the monstrous supercar, Jonny Lieberman, host of Ignition, believes that the mighty Lambo not only has what it takes to be a proper supercar, but can also take down the Porsche 918 Spyder.

That sounds like a tall order for the supercar and Lamborghini, but we’re rooting for the enormous, brash and psychotic machine. Because a world without a V12-powered Lamborghini just doesn’t make any sense.
