Enzo Ferrari is a 12 cylinder mid-engine sports car named after its famous founder.
The new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ surprised us ahead of its unveiling that will take place in August during Monterey Car Week: the newest super sports car from the House of the Raging Bull has set the lap record for production cars at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, in a lap time of 6:44.97 minutes.
Camouflaged and with official Lamborghini driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, the Aventador SVJ successfully tackled the challenge on the 20.6 km track during an exclusive session that saw the passionate commitment of Lamborghini’s Research and Development team, with extensive tire support from Pirelli technicians and driver.
What the “J” Stands for
“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,” explained Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman & CEO.
Best Weight-to-Power Ratio
The Aventador SVJ is made of lightweight materials that contribute to the excellent weight-to-power ratio of only 1.98 kg/hp, thus featuring an even higher power output. Furthermore, Lamborghini’s patented ALA 2.0 active aerodynamics system with aero vectoring guarantees the best handling and downforce, as well as SVJ-specific new aerodynamic features.
Optimized Ala Performance, Four-Wheel Drive System, Rear-Wheel Steering and ESC
Significant CFD simulation optimized the performance of the ALA system, with the exceptional downforce requiring an entire rework of the Aventador’s active and passive dynamic systems to exploit the car’s physical boundaries. 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, with enhanced damping, the steering has also been retuned in the SVJ.
