Lamborghini Aventador SVJ: All the specs you need to know
SV to the J
The standard Lamborghini Aventador produces 700hp, which to use the technical term, is "a buttload of power", but the SVJ, essentially the Aventador to end all Aventadors gets 70hp more. The Aventador SVJ's total output is 770hp, which is 'just' 10 percent more, but the most interesting news here is what it does with all that power.
Clever active aerodynamics systems can alter elements of the bodywork to optimise the car for maximum downforce or minimum drag. It's so clever, the active aerodynamics can alter the left and right elements of the rear wing to achieve maximum traction in corners.
It should also be noted that all this is tech unavailable even to Formula One cars, which have banned active aerodynamics some three decades prior.
Other tweaks over the regular Aventador include revised (read: firmer) suspension for increased handling precision on race tracks, a freer-flowing exhaust system (read: louder), and an all-wheel-drive system that can now send a little more power to the rear wheels (read: wilder).
All this contributes to giving the Aventador SVJ some absolutely blinding performance numbers. 0-100km/h is despatched in just 2.8 seconds, with the 0-200km/h dash taken care of in 8.6 seconds. Lamborghini didn't reveal the Aventador SVJ's exact top speed, but it did mention a claim of "over 350km/h", which is insane when you consider your average family car will struggle to do half that number.
The most important thing, though, is how the Aventador SVJ will be produced in a limited edition of 900 units. A further 63 will be produced in SVJ 63 guise, referencing 1963, the year Lamborghini was founded.
Suffice it to say, it's not cheap. The Aventador SVJ's price in Singapore hasn't yet been confirmed, but with a price tag of €349,116 (exclusive of local taxes), it's some 25 percent more expensive than the Lamborghini Aventador S, which costs S$1,498,000.
