After stealing the Nurburgring lap record from the Porsche 911 GT2 RS with two-second time difference, the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has finally peeled of its camo skin, revealing a more muscular and intimidating aura.
In case you’re wondering, SVJ stands for Superveloce Jota, which means superfast and performance superiority. Well, there’s no doubt, as this new-generation icon is packed with a powerful V12 engine that can punch a maximum output of 770 hp and 720 Nm of torque. This supercar can wildly accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just a matter of 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 350 km/h.
Limited to 900 units only, this supercar got a new front bumper that comes with side fins and bigger side air intakes to reduce drag and improve cooling. There’s also a tri-dimensional air outlet on the hood for better drag and downforce. Looking at the back, the SVJ comes with dual exhaust, high-mounted rear wing, and upgraded rear bumper with aggressive diffuser. The Italian marque managed to keep the SVJ’s weight down to 1,525 kg., all thanks to carbon fiber. Specifically-developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires also come as a standard, while there’s P Zero Trofeo R Tires as an option.
Aside from its powerful demeanor, the SVJ is also equipped with the brand’s Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) active aerodynamics to ensure its supremacy and stability. The ALA 2.0 system is responsible of switching between high downforce and low drag, depending on driving conditions, as well as controlling the airflow in the vehicle with the use of active flaps, which can be activated within 500 milliseconds.
The Aventador SVJ will be available in United States in 2019. Now, for you to be able to have your hands on this beast, you also have to prepare a whopping $517,700 (around P27,600,000). Crazy price for a crazily astonishing car, eh?
