As always, Lamborghini is seeking to constantly improve its models for track usage. With the company’s eyes on retaking the Nürburgring crown, the Aventador SVJ is here! The 2019 Lamborghini Aventador LP 770-4 Superveloce Jota (SVJ) is an absolute beast! From more power to a lighter weight, this car is an improvement over its predecessor. This car may not be practical for daily driving, but it is definitely practical for the track. Imagine zooming around with this power Lambo V12 engine. Wow, this car is absolutely stunning!

Lamborghini is known for its V12 legacy lineup. Generation to generation, the V12 is passed down to the youngest. The 2019 Lamborghini Aventador LP 770-4 Superveloce Jota is no different. With a 6.5-liter V12, this car produces a whopping 759 horsepower and 531 lb.-ft. of torque. Furthermore, this motor works in combo with a ISR single-clutch auto manual transmission. Moreover, the top speed is in the range of 217+ mph. This is due to the increase in power, plus a lighter flywheel, titanium intake values, and a shortened exhaust. Yes, the shorter exhaust does sound more aggressive too.

The weight difference is visible across the exterior and interior. Firstly, there is carbon fiber everywhere… truthfully, absolutely everywhere. The carbon fiber components include: engine cover, front splitter, interior door panels, monocoque, pillars, rear diffuser, rear wing, rocker cover, roof, and wing mirrors. Phew! That is quite a list of carbon. Next, there is two new technological additions. Firstly, for this, is the two-motor rear-wheel steering system. This benefits overall handling of the vehicle. Secondly, there is an active aerodynamic system, known as Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA). Finally, the car sits on Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.

A Track Driver’s Dream

The 2019 Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce Jota is a track driver’s dream. With a 0-60 mph in the low 2 second range, and 759 horsepower, this is like driving a wild beast. If carbon is a pro, this has tons of it. If not, then repainting it may be necessary. But, most people understand carbon’s generic attributes. This metal is lightweight and very strong, particularly due to the weave. Hence, it’s everywhere in the racing world. In conclusion, the Aventador SVJ is the next-generation V12 recipient.

Presenting the SVJ, Lambo’s Fastest Car Yet

The SVJ takes the lead as Lamborghini’s fastest production car and most powerful supercar. Bearing the iconic Jota badge, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is not only fast but more aerodynamic.

Like the Huracan Perfomante, the SVJ gets part of its speed from the Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. This system relies on electronic flaps on the front splitter and engine lid to increase downforce and reduce drag. The results show in quick corners and better overall performance.

The Unique Look of the Aventador SVJ

Not only does it make it faster, but the ALA system has a lot to do with the way the car looks. The front of the car appears sleeker and sports two vents on each side of the shield, just like the Huracan. However, the multi-tiered bumper has two horizontal blades and large side fins giving it almost a predator-like appearance.

The profile and side skirts are more aggressive. Aluminum, Y-spoke wheels, are specific to the SVJ and deliver both looks and performance.

All these features were developed to reduce drag and weight, resulting in a street-legal race car.

There’s Fast and Then There’s the SVJ

One could argue that Lamborghini has never produced a vehicle that wasn’t “fast” unless you take into the consideration that the first Lambo was a tractor. But, that’s old history and today the brand has become synonymous with “speed.”

Consider that the Aventador SVJ only takes 2.8 seconds to move from rest to 62 mph. It can hit 124 mph in just 8.6 seconds. The gravity force is strong enough to throw back your head and disrupt your breathing.  To cope with the increased power, the suspension had to be beefed up in places.

This is no tool for the novice. The seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod moves through gears quickly and at full-throttle, the power can easily get away from you. To get all this power under the hood, Lamborghini cranked up the naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 to 770hp with new titanium intake valves.

For those of you with half a million to spend, the 2019 SVJ will be available for order sometime after the first of the year.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR Defeats Aventador SVJ Ring Time

Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR Defeats Aventador SVJ Ring Time

A Victory for Porsche in the Ring!

On October 25, 2018, a modified Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR defeated the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time. With tweaking by Manthey-Racing, the car finished the lap in only 6 minutes and 40.33 seconds. This defeats the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ time of 6:44.97. This makes this car the fastest street car lap at the 12.9-mile Nordschleife.

”In this test drive, we simply wanted to assess the potential of the vehicle once more. The result is quite impressive. It really is a fabulous time. This shows again very clearly the exciting possibilities of this sports car.” – Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Head of Porsche Motorsport

The possibilities of the 911 GT2 RS MR almost seem endless. This car is a beastly machine, and with mods, is even better. Now, let’s take a deeper look into the car!

Modifications by Manthey-Racing

Under the hood, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR is untouched by Manthey-Racing. But, on the exterior, changes are made to improve handling. Starting with a new aero package, this car has a larger wing and dive planes. Next, there is new suspension hardware and magnesium wheels. Furthermore, there are better brake pads, fluids, and stainless-steel lines. But, the engine’s 700 horsepower is plenty to accomplish this feat.

Manthey-Racing’s modifications allowed this car to set the record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. This racing team currently runs Porsche’s 911 RSR World Endurance Championship program. On top of this, they offer mods for the Cayman GT4 Clubsport and 911 GT. This company is largely owned by Porsche, making a greater connection. In combination with the expert track driver, Lars Kern, this GT2 RS MR project set the record. This is an amazing feat that will sure be challenged by future models.

The 911 GT2 RS is King of the Ring

In the end, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR is now king of the ring. With such a low time, 6:40.33, this car beat out the Aventador SVJ’s time of 6:44.97. Even crazier, this car did better than the McLaren P1 LM, which had a time of 6:43.2. Furthermore, the P1 GTR is also behind on this number. Now, the new race will aim for a time below 6 minutes and 40 seconds. This should be an interesting battle of the supercar.
