I have an Asus Vx7Sx Lamborghini laptop, with a i7-2670 QM @2.2 GHz, CPU.

I would like to know if this laptop supports a CPU upgrade (i.e -> and upgrade to ivy bridge or a higher frequency sandy bridge upgrade).

After running CPUZ i got the following info that might be of use

For the CPU

Socket: 988B rPga
Max TDP: 45W

For the MainBoard

Chipset : Intel Sandy Bridge
Southbridge: Intel HM65

Thank you

You can stick an Ivy chip physically in the MB, but it relies on Asus having added Ivy chips to the BIOS. Which is unlikely, unless you find someone who's already done it.
