Lamborghini to launch its Aventador SVJ in 2018. Could pack 800 hp.
Autocar is reporting that the Aventador SVJ is expected to be launched later this year. It would most likely be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September or during the Paris Motor Show.
We first reported about the upcoming hardcore Aventador back in January 2018. Since then, numerous spy shots of the Aventador SVJ have been posted on the internet. It was initially rumoured to be called Aventador GT or Aventador Jota. However, recently leaked images have sort of confirmed that the new supercar will have the SVJ suffix in its name.
Spy images have also given us a hint of the SVJ exterior. It has a more extreme aero package compared to the standard Aventador SV. The changes include a large fixed rear wing and revised diffuser. It has twin exhausts similar to the Huracan Performante. Meanwhile, the rakish front end has also been tweaked. It is believed that the SVJ might get Lamborghini’s Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) active aero system. Under the skin, the Aventador SVJ is likely to get a 6.5-litre, naturally-aspirated V12 engine tuned to produce around 800 hp.
Historically, the letter J (Jota in Spanish) is reserved for Lamborghini’s most extreme models. While, the Aventador SVJ most certainly falls in the “extreme” category, it is expected to be a limited edition model.
