i did not shop the SV, because i like to put miles on my cars and therefore typically stay away from limited editions (although may not be a concern for others). i drove both a first gen aventador and then the S (where rear wheel steering was first added). for me, it literally shrunk the vehicle. without RWS, the thing felt like a tank. with it, it was awesome...so i went with the 2018 S and it is getting delivered this week. SV did not have RWS. per the literature out there, RWS shortens the feel of the wheelbase by 20 inches--huge. with that said, the SV looks awesome--nothing bad to say about it--i love all aventadors! mine has all the carbon fiber options, so has lots of excitement--even if not as special as the SV. i like both wheel options, but like the dianthus option in black the best. just wanted to give you my thoughts still fresh in my head. good luck!
