The Lamborghini Aventador may be over a decade old, but we still love it. Some of the last LP780-4 Ultimaes are rolling off the production line as we speak, marking the very end of the company's purely naturally aspirated V-12 powertrain. Celebrate the end of an era with this video of an Aventador SV shooting massive flames on a dyno.
The NM2255 YouTube channel was on the scene at Biesse Racing Bergamo, a performance shop just outside Milan, Italy, to film a Lamborghini Aventador SV tuning session on a dyno. The car is equipped with a Capristo exhaust and no longer has its catalytic converters, resulting in a ridiculously loud noise and lots of flames.
The eight-minute clip above treats us to several trips to 8500 rpm on the dyno, each more exciting than the last. Even when the car isn't accelerating hard, it seems to shoot flames on every shift, a result of unburnt fuel particulates igniting in the exhaust piping. It makes for one hell of a show, especially with the volume turned up.
