Yesterday we brought you a sneak peek of the highly anticipated Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. The model made its online debut today and we’ve added some info to our initial story, along with a few new pics.
Lamborghini advertises the new model’s power output as 576 kW with 700 N.m of torque from the V12 motor. Coupled with a mass of 1 525 kg the SVJ can sprint to 100 km/h in 2,8 seconds. Flat out it will do 350 km/h.
Lamborghini says the SVJ has an additional 40 per cent of downforce on each axle, compared with the Aventador SV. Not only does the new model have the latest generation of its active aero system, called ALA, but rear-wheel steer also creates more athleticism on track.
Other news from the press announcement is that only 900 units of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ will be produced.
The image above of the upcoming Lamborghini Aventador SVJ was leaked via a mobile phone app that is only supposed to be accessed by potential Lamborghini Aventador SVJ buyers. Expect more official images of the car to make their way online soon, especially now that the cat is out of the bag.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is supposed to make its world debut alongside several other models at Monterey car week, which started earlier this week. Customer sales will commence in 2019.
A heavy hitter
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has been making headlines for all the right reasons. The most hardcore Aventador set a new lap record at the Nurburgring for production cars. You can see that lap by clicking here.
The famous Nürburgring Nordschleife was covered in 6 min 44,97 minutes under the scrutiny of Remak personnel who managed time and GPS certification using VBOX Racelogic instrumentation. Lamborghini test and development pilot Marco Mapelli was responsible for setting the lap time. In doing so Mapelli broke the lap time previously held by Porsche’s GT2 RS.
BIG power and control
To claim the title of being the most extreme road-going Lamborghini ever produced the SVJ, for SuperVeloce Jota (the letter J in Italian is pronounced Jota) has a naturally aspirated 6,5-litre V12 engine that produces in the region of 600 kW.
An uprated suspension set-up, with bespoke semi-slick Pirelli Trofeo rubber developed especially for this car, is just part of the grip equation. Not only is there a massive rear wing in place, but the new car uses the latest version of Lamborghini’s active aero system. Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva, or ALA, as it is known, generates downforce when needed, ie during cornering, and can tailor the car’s aero for more straight-line speed when grip isn’t at a premium.
