Lamborghini seems to have reclaimed its title of the fastest production car around the Nurburgring with their newest tool, the Aventador SuperVeloce Jota or the Aventador SVJ. The SVJ has posted a lap time of 6 minutes and 44.97 seconds, more than two seconds faster than the current record holder, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
Just like the Performante, the Lamborghini that held the lap record before the Porsche, the Aventador gets Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva. The active aerodynamics system developed for the Huracan has certainly been refined further to adapt to the larger and more powerful Aventador. The winglets in the air dam and the large active rear wing can be seen assisting the Aventador in acceleration, braking and around corners in the teaser video.
Lamborghini engineers have focused on the power-to-weight ratio and handling characteristics of the SVJ. Plain horsepower would just make it faster in the straight line but to conquer the ‘Green Hell’ you need to turn in quick and manage the lateral forces much better. It still has 759bhp of power pumping out from the 6.5-litre V12 petrol engine and the power is sent to all-four wheels for maximum traction.
Now that Lamborghini has reclaimed the crown from Porsche, it is all set to make its debut as the world’s fastest production car around the Nurburgring at the Monterey Car Week also known as the Pebble Beach in the third week of August 2018.
