Lamborghini unveils Aventador SVJ at Monterey Car Week
August 27,2018: The Italian luxury automobile brand, Lamborghini, has launched its Lamborghini Aventador SVJ at a worldwide premiere at Monterey Car Week in California. The new Aventador SVJ, where SV historically stands for Superveloce (Superfast), takes the ‘Jota’ suffix, denoting its track and performance superiority. It 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.
Alongwith the SVJ, Lamborghini also introduced a special limited edition, named SVJ 63 in a unique color and trim, putting in evidence the rich use of carbon fiber and made in a limited number of just 63 in homage to Lamborghini’s founding year of 1963.
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 meters.
“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 space ship 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,” said Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stefano Domenicali.
