The future is unknown. It is a journey, an adventure. And above all, it is a challenge Lamborghini has never shied away from challenges, which is precisely why it created the new Aventador SVJ Coupé. To combine cutting-edge technology with extraordinary design, without ever coming to compromises. In a future driven by technology, it’s easy to lose track of emotions. But in the future we are shaping, real emotions won’t be left behind. Because at the wheel, there will always be a person. Aventador SVJ Coupé. Real emotions shape the future.
The Lamborghini driving experience isn’t easy to put into words: a stupefying mix of exceptional performance, groundbreaking technology and perfect aerodynamics. Yet there is one more element that is utterly indispensable for the future we envision: real emotions. The vehicle’s impeccable dynamics and the outstanding performance of the new 770 CV naturally-aspirated V12 engine combine with the mastery of a superior design, in which prized and exclusive materials forge a symbiosis with the car's ultra-lightweight body. Because the future we have in mind can only exist when uncompromising aesthetic perfection meets unparalleled performance and thrill-inducing aerodynamics.
Ultra-lightweight materials conceived for maximum performance give rise to breathtaking design: that’s what makes the new Aventador SVJ Coupé unique and unrivaled. Enhanced aerodynamic profiles, a fully redesigned front, larger side skirts, the omega-shaped rear wing and lighter, higher exhaust outlets are implanted into the featherlight carbon fiber chassis, which is equipped with wisely-distributed air intakes that are both different and larger than on any previous model. Lightness and performance in constant pursuit of each other.
The technological look of carbon fiber – featured in the monocoque which forms the cockpit and recurring in the doors, seats, central tunnel and console – coexists with a design of clear aeronautical inspiration, while the leather and Alcantara® upholstery add a boldly exclusive touch to the luxurious interiors. Finally, the exquisite cross-stitching details and notable presence of the SVJ internal plate confer a truly unique character to this new gem of engineering and highly-refined aesthetics.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has taken the lap record for production cars at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, in a lap time of 6:44.97 minutes.
The camouflaged Aventador SVJ with official Lamborghini driver Marco Mapelli at the helm, took on the lap-time test at the 20.6 km track. The challenge was managed by Lamborghini’s Research and Development team, with extensive tire support from Pirelli technicians and driver. Fitted with cameras inside and out and full telemetry, under the formal scrutiny of Remak personnel who managed time and GPS certification using VBOX-Racelogic instrumentation, the lap attempt of the Aventador SVJ was performed during an exclusive session on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The Aventador SVJ takes the Jota suffix, following the Lamborghini tradition for denoting a car’s track-focused talent. This new car is the convergence of Lamborghini technologies to produce a super sports car that transcends current performance benchmarks,” says Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stefano Domenicali. “Its tenure as the Nürburgring lap time record holder, even before its unveiling during the Monterey Car Week in California in August, endorses Lamborghini’s competence in applying superlative design engineering and ground-breaking technologies. The SVJ is a super sports car at the zenith of performance, while also ensuring unrivalled driving pleasure.”
The set-up of the Aventador SVJ has been entirely re-engineered to enhance its four-wheel drive system, rear-wheel steering and ESC. Significantly stiffer than the Aventador LP 750-4 SV, the steering has been retuned in the SVJ. The Aventador SVJ features a new specifically-developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires as standard. For the lap-time attempt the optional Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires were mounted.
