Lamborghini has taken the wraps off the Aventador SVJ Coupe – the most hardcore version of the Aventador till date.
The most striking feature of the new Aventador SVJ is its exterior. The car gets the second-gen Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) active aero package that made its debut on the Huracan Performante. As a result, the SVJ has a fully redesigned front end with larger intakes, side skirts and an omega-shaped rear wing and lightweight exhaust mounted higher up. The engine cover has been redesigned and now gets six strakes with a central glass portion. The rear diffuser too is rather massive.
The interior of the SVJ is similar to the Aventador SV. It features carbon-backed sports seats wrapped in Alcantara. There’s exposed carbon fiber on the doors, central tunnel and around the digital instrument cluster.
Powering the Aventador SVJ is the same 6.5-liter V12 engine, which could be the last of the naturally-aspirated V12s. It puts out 760 hp @ 8500 rpm and 531 lb-ft of torque @ 6750 rpm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed sequential manual transmission and a Haldex 4-wheel drive system. While, the powertrain might seem familiar, under the skin, the SVJ gets stiffer suspension setup with active shock absorbers and rear axle steering.
The SVJ rides on specially developed Pirelli Pzero Corsa tires – 255/30 ZR20 in the front and 355/25 ZR21 in the rear. Lamborghini claims that the SVJ will do 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 218 mph.
