Is this also powerful? Lamborghini certainly does not subscribe to such a concept as Lamborghini Aventador SVJ reveals at the Monterey Car Week demonstrates. 770 horsepower and a top speed of over 217 mph suggest that temperament and restraint have not yet been found in the Italian supercar manufacturer's vocabulary.
Again, we would not really have it. This latest generation of Aventador relies on which supercar fans who love it: the specially aspirated V12 engine in particular. Lamborghinis engineers pack new, lightweight materials along with some groundbreaking aero in the mix.
The engine is the strongest series production V12 that Lamborghini has ever used. The power climbs to 770 horsepower while the torque is a hefty 531 lb-ft with its peak of 6 750 rpm. That's enough, the automaker claims, for a 0-62 mph time in just 2.8 seconds, while 0-124 mph arrives for 8.6 seconds.
The top speed exceeds 217 km / h, but the Aventador SVJ can slow down from 62 km / h to a dead stop of just over 98 meters, says the company. It is important, since Lamborghini expects that it is a terrible tram, as the name suggests. "SV" stands for Superveloce, or "superfast", while "Jota" suffers its "track and performance superiority."
Power alone can not deliver it, the mind. Lamborghini also needed aerodynamic improvements, and set itself the challenge of increasing the downturn by more than 40 percent on each axis of the previous Aventador SV, and cutting the drag coefficient by 1 percent.
So it's wider on the front thanks to a new bumper that has integrated side fins and a new air intake. ALA, the active aerodynamic system we have seen works well on Huracan Performante, is also included. For Aventador SVJ reveals Lamborghini ALA 2.0.
This means new, optimized air intake and aero-channel design, along with a re-calibration to accommodate greater lateral acceleration of the heavier car. By opening and closing active flap in front fronts and on engine hood, ALA 2.0 can control airflow both front and back. Closure of the flaps increases the volume; To open them cuts draws. By changing the backflow flow to the left and right, Lamborghini can also increase the pitch in the corners.
The split front cluster does not only look striking, but it creates a meaningful channel for airflow. On the cover, the three-dimensional air outlet improves both drag and drop by driving air. Lamborghini says that a full 70 percent of the downforce increase is actually handmade by its upper aerodynamic optimization. Larger side air intakes reduce drag and improve cooling while the flip-flop is completely new.
Below, the aero-design has added vortex generators that work with front diffusers. A new rear diffuser, with diverging fins, contributes 30 percent to the overall downforce improvement, says Lamborghini.
Then it's the back wing. Made entirely of carbon fiber, it has a new air film and an optimized ALA 2.0 system, along with side wings to cut turbulence and give more impact on stretches and corners. It is on top of a high mounted, nude ejection, which not only looks hard, but also reduces the weight. An omega-shaped rear bumper houses the new diffuser.
Superlight "Nireo" aluminum wheels are designed specifically for Aventador SVJ. Lamborghini also has optional "Leirion" aluminum rims, with "Y" and hexagonal details. They are combined with rear-wheel drive, retuned for racing, and an updated four-wheel drive that allows 3 percent more torque to be pushed to the rear wheels against SV.
They are shot in new Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, specially designed for Aventador SVJ. Higher vertical rigidity pays dividends when it comes to greater power, while a particular tread design promises greater grip. Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tire – street-legal, but more meant for traction – is an option.
The proof of pudding is at the time of the time. Lamborghini took Aventador SVJ to the infamous Nürburgring-Nordschleife, where it quickly broke the production car record. A 12.8 mil round was completed in just 6: 44.97 minutes.
In the cabin is the trio of driving modes – Strada, Sport and Corsa – and EGO to customize all car configurations. Navigation and Apple CarPlay are included as standard, while Lamborghinis telemetry system for round-time registration and tracking performance is an option.
In short, it's the most horrible, aggressive and performance-oriented Aventador we've seen, and the only downside is that Lamborghini will make just 900 of them. If you're lucky enough to get on the short list, you'll see $ 517,770 and wait until the beginning of 2019 when the automaker expects to start deliveries.
