The development philosophy of Lamborghini’s Aventador SVJ is to create a demanding driver’s perfect car ensuring the most rewarding experience
Extraordinary design, ground-breaking technologies and the ultimate in performance and driver enjoyment take the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ to the pinnacle of super sports cars.
The Aventador SVJ creates pure driving perfection, according to Lamborghini officials.
The new Aventador SVJ – where SV historically stands for Superveloce, meaning ‘superfast’ – takes the ‘Jota’ suffix, denoting its track and performance superiority. The car has already claimed its position as the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record holder, completing the 20.6 km lap in just 6:44.97 minutes.
The new generation of the iconic V12 Lamborghini flagship is limited to 900 units, says the company.
A special edition, named SVJ 63, was also exclusively unveiled on the concept lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. It pays homage to Lamborghini’s founding year of 1963.Produced in a unique configuration, it demonstrates the rich use of carbon fibre and is made in an a limited number of just 63.
“The Aventador SVJ is an innovative car and represents the absolute pinnacle of our super sports car product range,” says Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stefano Domenicali. “The challenge to Lamborghini designers and engineers was to improve the purest essence of the Lamborghini super sports car, drawing on every inspiration from a spaceship to a jet fighter: all the most exceptional examples of super-fast, super-athletic, aerodynamic superiority. The Aventador SVJ takes another step into the future, shaping the potential for super sports car development.”
The Aventador SVJ’s Nürburgring-Nordschleife lap record is proof of its benchmarking performance. With its optimised power plant making it the most powerful series production V12-engined car produced to date by Lamborghini, the SVJ features an increase in power to 770 hp (566 kW) at maximum 8,500 rpm. The SVJ outputs 720 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm, while a dry weight of just 1,525 kg gives the SVJ a weight-to-power ratio of 1.98 kg/hp. The SVJ accelerates from standing to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.6 seconds. A top speed of more than 350 km/h is complemented by a braking distance of 100 km/h to 0 in 30 m.
The Aventador SVJ is, however, more than a super sports car achieving the top numbers. The development philosophy of the Aventador SVJ and its very essence in terms of design, aerodynamic technologies and efficiency, weight-to-power as well as performance, is to create a demanding driver’s perfect car.
Every feature of the Aventador SVJ resonates its aerodynamic prowess: the car is significantly enhanced in appearance compared to the Aventador S, with every facet of its ‘form follows function’ design a reminder of its raison d’être on road and track: innovate to be the best. The main goal in design was a significant downforce improvement compared to the previous Aventador SV.
The Aventador SVJ is a driver-focused car, developed to maximise the union between driver and car in the most extreme road and track conditions and ensure the most rewarding experience.
With Lamborghini’s three driving modes, Strada, Sport and Corsa, as well as the EGO option allowing the driver to further customise his preferences for car set-up, the cockpit features Kombi graphics on the TFT digital dashboard display as well as showing live status of the ALA functions.
The navigation system and infotainment system including AppleCarPlay come as an option free of charge, allowing the cockpit’s occupants to manage voice-activated communications and entertainment from personal Apple devices.
The interior specification of the Aventador SVJ is virtually limitless through Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customisation programme.
The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ at the beginning of 2019 with suggested retail prices of $517,770 in the US.
