After nearly a month’s delay, Lamborghini will finally launch the hardcore Aventador SVJ in India on 21 January. The SVJ suffixed flagship Lambo holds the title of the ‘King of the Ring’ having lapped the legendary Green Hell in just 6:44.97 minutes.
The SVJ stands for Superveloce Jota. The SV (Superveloce) means ‘superfast’ while the prestigious Jota moniker is reserved only for Lamborghini’s highly special street-legal race cars. The Aventador SVJ is powered by the most powerful series-production V12-engine made by Lamborghini till date. It breathes out mind-boggling 760bhp of firepower at 8,500 rpm and churns out a colossal 720 Nm of twisting force at 6,750 rpm. Tipping the scale at mere 1,525 kg, the SVJ can accelerate from standstill to a 100kmph in a mere 2.8 seconds and from 0-to-200kmph in 8.6 seconds, all the way to a top speed of 350kmph.
The SVJ comes fitted with Lamborghini’s Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) active aerodynamics which is in its second-generation now. The first generation debuted on the Huracan Performante and it helped the Baby Lambo break the ‘Ring record too with a time of 6.52.01 minutes. The upper body aerodynamic optimisation in the SVJ has increased the downforce by up to 70 per cent, says the Italian carmaker. There are active diffusers, wings, fins and shapes all helping towards the SVJ’s go-fast philosophy.
The extensive weight shaving methods include carbon fibre parts, super-light ‘Nireo’ aluminium alloys and a stark cabin. The SVJ also comes with new editions of Lamborghini’s acronyms including LDVA with EGO mode, ISR, LRS, and LDS. The Pirelli P Zero Corsa comes as standard, but the street-legal track-focused P Zero Trofeo R tyres comes as optional fitting.
