“…the absolute pinnacle of our super sports car product range.”Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Lamborghini
A special edition SVJ 63, was unveiled on the concept lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It pays homage to Lamborghini’s founding year of 1963: produced in a unique configuration, it demonstrates the use of carbon fiber and is made in an additional limited edition of just 63.
The Aventador SVJ is the most powerful series production V12 engine car ever produced by Lamborghini. The V12 generates 770 hp at 8,500 rpm and 531 lb-ft of torque 6,750 rpm. All of that power and torque will launch the 3362 pound all-wheel drive hypercar from 0-100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, with 0-200 km/h runs of 8.6 seconds. The SVJ has a top speed of more than 350 km/h and can come to a stop from 100 km/h in just 30 meters.
The SVJ’s four-wheel drive system has improved torque split to maximize traction and agility, with the higher stability of the SVJ allowing a further 3% of torque to be sent to the rear axle compared to the SV. The rear-wheel steering has been developed to further improve the car’s stability while reducing braking distances, particularly in combined braking/turning conditions such as high speed cornering. ESC has been enhanced for improved cornering and driver experience in extreme handling conditions, and ABS has been specifically tuned for the improved grip provided by the tires and ALA system.
The Aventador SVJ’s rear-wheel steering (LRS) is further engineered to exploit the aero load in every environment, providing exceptional stability in high speed conditions and improving agility in cornering to enhance average speed in all dynamic conditions.
The enhanced powertrain features a new titanium intake valve with a new-shape intake runner and length, with a modified intake cylinder head duct for higher flow coefficient. The new, lightweight exhaust system reduces backpressure as well as producing the most emotive sound, and the optimized seven-speed Independent Shifting Road (ISR) gearbox has been calibrated for the car’s increased performance in terms of both power and torque.
The Aventador SVJ’s steering has also been developed to provide the feedback demanded in high-performance track and racing environments. The rebalanced power steering reflects the specific aero load and tires, and the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) is recalibrated to further improve steering precision and natural feedback.
The optional telemetry system records lap times and track performance as well as trip data, the telemetry system is especially appealing to the owner who wants to take his car on track.
The first customers will take delivery of the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ at the beginning of 2019 with suggested retail price of $517,770 USD or the equivalent of $670,000 CAD.
