Lamborghini working on lightweight Murcielago SV

Lamborghini Murcielago SV

According to Autocar, Lamborghini is working on a superlight version of the Murcielago. Seen as a glorious end to its production (the Murcielago is scheduled to get out of production), the Murcielago SV will be about 130 kg lighter than the current LP640 and it seems it will be more powerful than the million Euro Reventon (they talk of about 680 hp for the SV).

So, how the Lmaborghini engineers plan on doing this? Well, the SV will be a RWD model, and the weight difference is made by removing the front differential and driveshaft (40 kilos removed) and more weight will be dropped by using carbon fiber for both the interior and the exterior, new forged alloy wheels, which will also save at least 6 kg. Also, Lamborghini will drop the multimedia system and, to be honest, at how that engine sounds, who needs it?
