This other worldwide premiere during Monterey Car Week in California at “The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering” caught our attention. Some reasons are evident so let’s go over them now:
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has set a new Nürburgring-Nordschleife lap record for a production car with a time of 6:44.97, besting the previous record of 6:47.25 set by the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
The Aventador SVJ (Super Veloce Jota) uses Lamborghini’s Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system and adds 40% more downforce than the SV along with a 1% reduction in the coefficient of drag. The car also features lightweight materials and four-wheel steering along with the highest-output ever produced (770-horsepower and 531 lb.-ft. of torque) by a normally-aspirated V12 for Lambo. And lastly, the car’s still AWD.
The less obvious reason is that this could be the farewell version of the Aventador as it nears a 10-year production run (since 2011). Only 900 will be built of what we think will be a fitting tribute to Lambo’s flagship supercar.
