Lamborghini Aventador SVJ beat Porsche GT2 RS at the NurburgringJuly 27, 2018
Literally a few days ago, Lamborghini published a teaser with the prototype of the new supercar Aventador SVJ, which prescribed the turns of the Nurburgring. It was clear to all that the Italians were aiming for the track record, and today there was information that it fell.
According to the Italians themselves on their official website, their new car drove the Nurburgring circle for 6:44.97, which is more than two seconds faster than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS (6:47.3), and also a second faster than the electric hypercar Nio EP9 (6:45.9).
Lamborghini has not yet published a video recording with a record-breaking race, but has mentioned that their results are confirmed by the cameras inside the car, the VBOX-Racelogic chronograph system, and GPS data. The record was set by the factory pilot Marco Mapelli.
The characteristics of Aventador SVJ have not yet been published, which is not surprising, because the car has not yet been officially introduced. According to rumors, under the hood of the SVJ is the atmospheric V12 with a payback of around 800 horsepower, while the weight of the supercar is estimated at 1,525 kilograms. Also there is information that SVJ has active aerodynamics.
The presentation of Lamborghini Aventador SVJ will take place next month as part of the Monterey Car Week festival.
It is worth noting that recently another car brand tested its strength on the legendary German track: then Lamborghini Huracan Performante passed the circle for 6: 52.01.
