Lamborghini has officially unveiled their flagship production supercar – the Aventador SVJ – at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The SVJ aka Superveloce Jota (pronounced as "Super-Velocheh-Hottahh") is the final iteration of the iconic Aventador series and also the most powerful modern Lamborghini ever made.
The Aventador SVJ had hit all headlines recently. The Italian flagship proved its capabilities at the Nürburgring Nordschleife – the German racetrack considered to be the epitome of all motorsport racetracks. The car set a record lap time of 6:44.97 minutes, beating the previous 6:47.3-minute lap made by the Porsche 991.2 911 GT2 RS.
The limited-to-63-units Aventador SVJ 63 was also unveiled along with the regular model. It signifies '1963' – the year in which Lamborghini was founded.
At first glance itself, it becomes evident that the Aventador SVJ is aimed to be one the best and most insane out there. The aggressive front bumper, the host of carbon fibre body parts and the large yet lightweight centerlock wheels add a lot of character to the supercar.
Just like any other Lamborghini supercar, the Aventador SVJ sits low with the traditional ‘Gandini* Line' shaping its upper boundary. The new Aventador SVJ has also got a large and distinct rear wing that supports active aero.
*Gandini Line is an element in Lamborghini's design language — the near-flat roofline — followed by almost all their models ever made. It is named after Lamborghini's old lead designer, Marcello Gandini.
At the rear, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ follows the same aggressive approach as on the front. The engine covers are more chiselled and sculpted, the dual exhausts sit on top of the large and wide rear diffuser while carbon fibre is spread across.
The interiors are the exact opposite of being subtle and come with some red accents. The seats might not be the most comfortable but they are definitely the one of the best in terms of support. The cockpit offers a lot of electronic and mechanical functions aimed to do just one thing – go fast!
Lamborghini says that the Aventador SVJ is the most advanced road-going product they've ever made; keeping aerodynamics as the key focus. The ultimate Aventador debuts the brand's Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) 2.0. The first version of the system was introduced in the Lamborghini Huracan Performante.
The latest iteration of the system has got opening/closing flaps in the front splitter and on the engine cover. The air passing over the rear wing can be split to the left or right, as per the downforce needs. This, in combination with Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva 2.0 – the electronic unit which can adjust the car's downforce from zero to maximum in less than a second, makes the car go through corners as if it is on rails.
Regarding the powerhouse, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is powered by a 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 that makes 770bhp at 8500rpm and 720Nm of torque at 6750rpm. The engine comes mated to a seven-speed ‘single-clutch' automatic transmission (the only thing which limits its true potential, as per purists and enthusiasts). Power is sent to all four wheels.
The car is extremely light with a dry weight of 1525kg and has got a class-leading power-to-weight ratio of 1.98kg/hp. The SVJ can do a 0-100km/h sprint in just 2.8 seconds and has got a top speed of over 350km/h.
Only 900 units (including the SVJ 63) of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ will be made. Prices start at 517,770 US dollars or Rs 3.63 crore (direct conversion without considering taxes). Deliveries should commence by early-2019.
Thoughts On The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
The Aventador has been on the market for almost 10 years but its design looks fresh even today. The Lamborghini Aventador was always considered to be not as capable as it should be due to its single-clutch transmission. Even though the new SVJ has got some insane performance figures, a dual-clutch transmission could've made it the very best out there.
As per some sources, an Aventador SVJ could reach Indian shores sometime soon. Until then, what do you think of this ultimate Lamborghini?
