Aventador SVJ Sets Nürburgring Lap Record Ahead of its Unveiling

Back

[[ formattedDate ]]

The new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ surprised us ahead of its unveiling that will take place in August during Monterey Car Week: the newest super sports car from the House of the Raging Bull has set the lap record for production cars at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, in a lap time of 6:44.97 minutes.

The Challenge

Camouflaged and with official Lamborghini driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, the Aventador SVJ successfully tackled the challenge on the 20.6 km track during an exclusive session that saw the passionate commitment of Lamborghini’s Research and Development team, with extensive tire support from Pirelli technicians and driver.

What the “J” Stands for

“The Aventador SVJ takes the Jota suffix, following the Lamborghini tradition for denoting a car’s track-focused talent. This new car is the convergence of Lamborghini technologies to produce a super sports car that transcends current performance benchmarks,” explained Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman & CEO.

Best Weight-to-Power Ratio

The Aventador SVJ is made of lightweight materials that contribute to the excellent weight-to-power ratio of only 1.98 kg/hp, thus featuring an even higher power output. Furthermore, Lamborghini’s patented ALA 2.0 active aerodynamics system with aero vectoring guarantees the best handling and downforce, as well as SVJ-specific new aerodynamic features.

Optimized Ala Performance, Four-Wheel Drive System, Rear-Wheel Steering and ESC

Significant CFD simulation optimized the performance of the ALA system, with the exceptional downforce requiring an entire rework of the Aventador’s active and passive dynamic systems to exploit the car’s physical boundaries. The set-up of the Aventador SVJ has been entirely re-engineered to enhance its four-wheel drive system, rear-wheel steering and ESC. Significantly stiffer than the Aventador LP 750-4 SV, with enhanced damping, the steering has also been retuned in the SVJ. 

What to Expect at Monterey Car Week

“Its tenure as the Nürburgring lap time record holder, even before its unveiling during Monterey Car Week in California in August, endorses Lamborghini’s competence in applying superlative design engineering and ground-breaking technologies. The SVJ is a super sports car at the zenith of performance, while also ensuring unrivalled driving pleasure,” said Stefano Domenicali, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman & CEO. “This is another demonstration of the exceptional skill and teamwork of the dedicated personnel within Automobili Lamborghini: the R&D team, as well as our test drivers, and of course partners such as Pirelli,” added Maurizio Reggiani, Chief Technical Officer.

Another Record in Lamborghini's "Hall of Fame"

In 2015 the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV delivered a sub-seven minute lap time, and in 2016 the Huracán Performante set the Nürburgring Nordschleife production car record, with a lap time of 6:52:01, which it held until September 2017.
