Lamborghini Aventador SVJ chasing the NurburgringJuly 8, 2018
Back in May of this year, the upcoming Superveloce Jota (SVJ) – a special version of the Italian sports car Aventador, was seen on the legendary German Nürburgring race track. It was assumed that the pilot of the car was going to beat the current record of this track.
Note that so far undefeated record belongs to the German automaker Porsche, racers who last year, while driving the 911 GT2 RS drove the entire track in just 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds. I must say that this is just an excellent result. But nevertheless, guys from the Italian brand Lamborghini do not want to put up with the existing state of things and make a big bet on the hot modification of their sports car Aventador. About this a couple of hours ago it became known to the journalists of the foreign publication Autocar.
So far, officially, the Italian brand has not commented on this possibility in any way, but we can say that this step is quite expected, given that the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce Jota (SVJ) has already been repeatedly seen for quick rides on the Nurburgring.
The fastest result to date of the Aventador SVJ is the time of 6 minutes and 54 seconds, which is only 6.7 seconds short of the time that was able to demonstrate the German 911 GT2 RS. Nevertheless, Aventador performed races in an environment different from the ideal, and that means that the Italian will be able to drive one full circle of the Nurburgring even faster than the Porsche racers managed to do.
If our assumptions are correct, then the new version of the Italian sports car Aventador SVJ will not only be the most powerful of all the ever-mass-produced modifications of the Aventador model, but it can become the fastest production car that has ever passed the Nurburgring race. With an estimated capacity of 780 horsepower under the hood, this is not surprising. We can only wait for the engineers of Lamborghini to bring their novelty to mind.
Not so long ago, we wrote that the Lamborghini Hybrid Hypercar allegedly shown at a closed event.
