    Murcielago SV vs. Aventador (face-to-face shootouts)

    Yes, the McLaren is about the only car I'm interested in the moment if I sell my SV. They did finally come around and extend my warranty, so who knows when I'll part with the SV. It's unlikely it will be for an Aventador.

    LP670SV serial numbers

    No, that's a car that can't come to the US. Notice the triangular side markers in front. Roy's may have been the only Monterey Blue allowed in the US.

    Not any more. He gave up the order.

    Good, we still get together often. We did CES together as we do every year and have a great time. He dumped his LP640 on a black McLaren MP4-12C last summer and loves it. I don't think he will be another Lamborghini owner anytime soon, but one never knows. He goes through a lot of cars. He's constantly praising the interaction with the factory at McLaren; said they treat him extremely well. All the McLaren owners up here praise the factory and dealers.

    Hahaha! Yea, we're ditching the green vests this year- moving into jackets. Ohhhh-Ahhhh! For those wondering what CC's talking about, in 2009 we started a Saturday morning exotic car gathering and over the years it's really blown up to be a big deal around here with an average of 200 exotics and rare cars showing up every week. I still volunteer so most of the pictures of me floating around are in a green vest, leading many to think I'm really well paid parking attendant. In this photo I'm standing with Paul Williamsen of Lexus. He's been a regular competitor in the Baja 500 and 1000 with lots of crazy stories. Truly one of the nicest guys I've ever met.

    Thanks! I just get busy with other things. Our car season kicks off soon up here so I'm starting to read the forums again.

    Yea, I spent a lot of time in my LP640 and didn't want less comfort.

    Here is a favorite shot. Acting as a chase car in Tacoma.

    Mostly black. The interior "SV" is silver. This is one of the very few pictures I could find of the interior. I have thousands of the exterior.

    Yes, those are the seats, minus the belts. They only offered stitching in the original SV colors, so I went with black.

    I just went through about 1,000 pictures and I don't think I ever took any of just the seats. This is the closest I could find where you can see the SV seat pattern. They are Alcantara, similar to the LP640 seats that are adjustable. I didn't think the lightweight SV seats were very comfortable for me and these were 40 pounds more weight in total. I figured that was a few gallons of gas difference, so I preferred comfort. If I'm out for a drive, I'm out for hours at a time and after spending time in an SV prior to ordering mine, I decided I wanted something different. As I recall, they were the same price, either way. My car is in for service and won't be done until the end of the month so I can upload some better shots then.

    There were three Verde Ithaca SVs made. Only one for the US market. One is in Russia and is the car on YouTube doing all the challenges. The other is in Italy and shows up now and then on the streets, and my car. It's fairly easy to spot my car because of the US side markers. I've made no modifications to the car. I had the OC exhaust on my LP640 Roadster but decided to leave this car original given how few were built. All three SVs have different colored calipers. I've got the only one with black. The other two cars have yellow and gray. I have a lot of respect for the LP640 and in some ways miss my Roadster because of the glorious noises I'd hear with an open top. Still, the differences are so numerous between the LP640 and LP670 that it's difficult to see them as the same car. The SV stands all alone in the automotive world.
