This is the Aventador SVJ, the ultimate V12 Lambo and currently the fastest production car. Lamborghini’s new flagship focuses on three things; aerodynamics, lightweight construction and increased power.
Lamborghini will also be releasing a special SVJ 63 version of its new flagship. With a moniker designed to echo 1963 – the year the company was founded. The SVJ 63 features a limited colour and trim, and only 63 examples will be built.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63 wears the “special edition” label
The engineers at Lamborghini have shoehorned-in a 12-cylinder 6.5-litre engine, good for 759bhp – and that’s all without forced induction, too; the SVJ is naturally-aspirated. – carmagazine.co.uk
The Lamborghini new powerplant gets peak brakehorsepower at 8,5000 rpm, and 531 ft lb of torque a little lower down at 6750rpm. When combined with a dry weight of just 1525kg, the SVJ gets to 62mph (100kmh) from a standstill in just 2.8 seconds.
SVJ includes other upgrades over the ‘standard’ Aventador
- Lamborghini 1525kv weight thanks to prolific use of carbon-fibre,
- efficiecnt exhaust system and
- super-light ‘Nireo’ aluminum rims
From the huge rear-wing, the SVJ generates an extra 40% of downforce on each axle compared to the Aventador SV. And while 70% of the increase is attributed to above upper-body modifications, the addition 30% comes from less ostentatious devices.
