This Lamborghini Aventador SVJ with launcher control spews pillars of flame from a pipeJuly 5, 2019
This video from Germany shows that the gray Aventador SVJ is going to fight with the Audi R8 in drag racing (driving in a straight line at a time) on an empty runway. If you have not yet been a fan of the hardcore “Italian” (which we doubt …), then a start like this one will surely conquer you.
Italian supercar Lamborghini Aventador in a more powerful version of the SVJ has an absolutely wild launch control system (also known as launch control), and if the supercar engine heats up quite strongly when accelerating from a standstill, it can spew flames just like a real rocket before takeoff.
As you probably already know, the SVJ version is equipped with a 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated. This is the same basic engine that is used in all versions of the Aventador model, but it has undergone several modifications, so now it can boast a power of 759 hp and torque of 720 Nm. Other improvements made for the Italian supercar include a tailored exhaust system with two large tailpipes that extend from the center of the rear panel – and, as you can see, are in the habit of “shooting” fire when drivers press the gas pedal.
What is particularly cool about this video is that Aventador doesn’t just spew fire at the starting line; even when it accelerates along the runway, it continues to “breathe” fire — it looks very impressive.
We saw several completely wild SVJs released this year, including one painted in shade, called Rosso Efesto, back in March, as well as a matte purple pattern with golden wheels, which we first noticed in May.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that a more powerful version of the Lamborghini Urus crossover from the ABT atelier was presented. After all work on the modification of the engine of the Italian crossover, the latter boasts 700 hp, torque increased from 850 to 910 Nm.
