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.
