The new Aventador SVJ, where SV historically stands for Superveloce – meaning ‘superfast’ – takes the ‘Jota’ suffix, denoting its track and performance superiority: the Aventador SVJ has already claimed its position as the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record holder, completing the 20.6 km lap in just 6:44.97 minutes.

“The Aventador SVJ is an innovative car and represents the absolute pinnacle of our super sports car product range. The challenge to Lamborghini designers and engineers was to improve the purest essence of the Lamborghini super sports car, drawing on every inspiration from a spaceship to a jet fighter: all the most exceptional examples of super-fast, super-athletic, aerodynamic superiority. The Aventador SVJ takes another step into the future, shaping the potential for super sports car development.” — Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stefano Domenicali.
The SVJ has an active aero and new rear-wheel steering. Besides, the car’s weight is 50 kg less than the standard Aventador. This results from a lighter exhaust, carbon fiber, and lighter wheels. Hence, the car can speed up from 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds, and a further 124mph in 5.8 seconds.
The automaker developed rear-wheel steering to improve the stability of the car, which also reduced the braking distance when braking/turning on high speed. They enhanced the ESC for extreme handling conditions and the ABS tuned for enough grips on the tires.
