The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ was first unveiled at the Sant’Agata Bolognese, 2018, for a worldwide premiere. It was meant to replace the Murcielago, featuring a redesigned V12 engine, active aero, and carbon fiber parts. As its name denotes, the SVJ stands in for the pinnacle of hypercar engineering. SV historically means Superveloce translating to superfast. The “Jota” suffix is derived from the car’s track performance superiority, a milestone it achieved by becoming the fastest production car at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife then. The SVJ becomes the second Lambo to feature the “Jota” badge after the Diablo.

Looking at the SVJ, it’s virtually a beefed-up Aventador SV. The difference lies in the performance since the SVJ is faster, more powerful, and more aerodynamic. It simply brings the concept of a supersport car to a whole new level. According to Automobili Lamborghini Chairman Stefano Domenicali, their designers wanted to improve the essence of supersport cars, drawing inspiration from spaceships to jet fighters. Their efforts paid off as the SVJ has that aggressive look, superfast, and aerodynamic superiority.

For the perfect experience of pure driving, the SVJ brings that track performance to a road-legal car. Here are ten more reasons why every gearhead should drive the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.

It’s Powered By A Naturally Aspirated Engine

While having turbochargers or superchargers translates to additional power, that’s not the case with the SVJ. The car gets its juice from a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 mill cranking out 759 ponies and 531lb-ft of torque — that’s an additional 70 horsepower over its predecessor.

The SVJ beats the SV in other areas, such as having a reduced curb weight, making it 110 pounds lighter. The SVJ sends its power to four wheels in a permanent 4WD system. It can sprint from 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds and achieve a top speed of 217mph. Needless to say, the Avendator SVJ remains one of the most powerful V-12 Lambos ever produced by the Italian manufacturer.

To Appreciate Its Poised Handling And Driving Performance

For a car weighing close to 3,500 pounds, one would expect this high-performance speed rocket to feel like a ship. However, Lamborghini employed enough technology to make the SVJ stable at high speeds and to help it maneuver corners like a small car.

Lamborghini employed rear-wheel steering system in the SVJ, a technology they first used in the Aventador SV. In conjunction with the revised aero load, this technology helps keep the car stable and agile when cornering. The steering system of the SVJ was also redesigned to send a motorsport-inspired and top precision to the driver. Its four-wheel-drive system provides maximum traction and agility thanks to its optimized torque split.

While the SVJ is more powerful and faster than its siblings, it’s also more aerodynamic. It benefits from Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. Lamborghini first introduced this feature on the Huracan perfomante. The ALA system on the Aventador SVJ incorporates aero channel designs and an all-new air intake, turning the already potent supercar into a road-legal speed demon.

Also, this ALA system helps the SVJ reduce drag and achieve a higher downforce than the Aventador SV. Flaps located on the engine hood automatically open to reduce drag when the car is driving at high speeds.

While the exterior of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ differs from the SV, its interior resembles that of the SV in every aspect, except for a few fine details. Behind the wheel is a futuristic digital cluster that adjusts itself depending on the driving mode chosen. Its seats are power-adjustable, with air conditioning as a standard feature.

The interior is full of fine leather and carbon fiber, with the door panels featuring pull loops meant to reduce weight. The SVJ doesn’t come with navigation and infotainment, but one can add them at zero cost. Since the car was meant to break records, it lets you record its track performance, lap times, trip data, and fuel economy.

The SVJ takes after other Aventadors but has a more aggressive look, thanks to the SVJ’s front and rear bumpers that aid in scooping air through the front and sides. Lamborghini also redesigned the louvered engine cover into a unique “Y” shaped design. These features, plus the rear diffuser, improve the SVJ’s downforce by a massive 40{ff73e94827869dd2b5714d793ef449233b8f00ed743c91e1b3a181dbbd187443} and increase the engine cooling by 10{ff73e94827869dd2b5714d793ef449233b8f00ed743c91e1b3a181dbbd187443}.

For the first time in an Aventador, an active aero system controls the dedicated air duct, lower front lip, and the rear wing. Exhaust pipes of the SVJ were relocated to the center fascia, a feature that goes ahead to save weight besides giving it an aggressive look.

It Is A Special Limited Production Car

When first announced in 2018, Lamborghini revealed that the SVJ would be a limited production car. Its production is likely to end in 2021. Nonetheless, the SVJ is poised to be the last naturally aspirated V12 Lambo not fitted with a hybrid motor.

There are other special edition variants of the SVJ — the SVJ 63 model that will see only 63 units hit the road and the roadster variant known as the SVJ Roadster produced in a limited series of 800 cars. In general, Lamborghini will produce 963 Aventadors that bear the SVJ badge.

To Test Its Four Drive Modes

Owning an Aventador SVJ lets one choose between four driving modes, SPORT, CORSA, STRADA, and EGO, with the latter being a new mode first introduced in the 2020 SVJ. All the modes have a full effect on the car’s traction, steering, and suspension.

STRADA is best for daily drive since it provides maximum ride quality and comfort. Changing to SPORT mode gives one the thrill of a sporty and rear-wheel-drive feel. CORSA should be saved for use when on track, since it provides maximum track performance. The new EGO mode can customize every setting to the driver’s preference since it has additional set-up profiles.

To Get A Feel Of Its State-Of-The-Art Braking System

The only fun of cruising at more than 200mph is stopping the car within the shortest distance. SVJ engineers had this in mind when calibrating the braking system of this speed king. The car can go from 62mph to a standstill in 98.4 feet, set during the Nürburgring lap record.

The brake system comprises a dual hydraulic circuit vacuum with six-piston aluminum monobloc calipers in the front wheels and four-piston calipers in the rear wheels. Behind the wheels are huge Brembo carbon-ceramic and ventilated brake disks. Besides this, the SVJ consists of other safety features such as ABS, stability control, pretensioners, and airbags.

To Experience What A Record-Breaking Production Car Feels Like



The SVJ will go down in history books as the fastest production car at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It beat the previous record held by Porsche 911 GT2 RS in 2017 — the SVJ lapped the track 3 seconds quicker in 2018. This marquee doesn’t stop at that; it’s also faster than the Huracán Performante and the Aventador SV.
