After a few months of teasing, Lamborghini finally unveiled the new supercar - the Aventador SVJ. It was revealed at the ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering' in the USA. Hot on the heels of this unveil, now its European debut will take place at Salon Privé, at the Blenheim Palace from 30 August to 1 September. Go ahead, drool over its picture gallery.
The Aventador SVJ is based on the Aventador, but is a more muscular and aggressive version with sharp air intakes, a front splitter and massive air intakes at the sides.
At the back, a large spoiler, solid rear diffuser, dual exhaust and a gill-like rear end make it look absolutely marvellous.
Powering the supercar is a 6.5-litre V12 petrol mill that churns out 770bhp of power and 720Nm of torque.
It enables the vehicle to sprint from 0-100kmph in just 2.8 seconds, while its top speed has been electronically limited to 350kmph.
Lamborghini has achieved this smashing performance by cutting down the weight of this car to 1,525kg. This gives it a power to weight ratio of 1.98 kg/hp.
Tested at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife and setting up a quick lap record, the carmaker's philosophy behind the SVJ is to create a ‘demanding driver’s perfect car’.
In order to achieve the afore-mentioned, the SVJ comes fitted with enhanced versions of Lamborghini’s patented active aerodynamics system and aero vectoring.
Then, there's a redesigned and re-engineered chassis, enhanced powertrain and rear-wheel steering, and significantly improved stiffness and downforce as well.
