Lamborghini says customers will start receiving their new Aventador SVJ‘s at the start of 2019. It comes with a suggested retail price in the United States of $517,770 (GGT included). But when it comes to their flagship model, Lamborghini rewards customers who customize their cars. As such, many owners have purchased every available option before handling their order to Lamborghini’s Ad Personam department.
This will easily push the final price beyond $699,000. Only 800 examples of the Roadster will be produced so it will command a premium over the coupe. The reason behind that Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Price is to place the owner high on the VIP list. This includes private events and opportunities to purchase rare models before they are formally revealed.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Review
If you need the ultimate Raging Bull, the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most capable car in their history. We already knew they achieved the fastest lap of the Nürburgring, and this is how they did it. Taking inspiration from the patented ALA system on the Huracan Performante, the latest Aventador has 4-corner active aerodynamics. Inlets behind the front spoiler can direct air to extractors ahead of the hood for maximum downforce.
They work in conjunction with ducts in the rear quarter panels and the rear spoiler to keep the car glued to the track. It only takes 500 milliseconds to turn the system off, and this forces air into vortex generators under the body. Much like the winglets on many airliners, they offer less drag and a higher top speed (Over 217 mph). The car offers 40% more downforce than its predecessor, with 1% less drag. The real treat is that 30% of that force can be shifted left or right for the ultimate in cornering abilities.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Specs
Although it has made incredible improvements since 2012, some aspects of the Aventador have not changed. Starting with a one-piece carbon-fiber cockpit, front and rear subframes cradle the inboard suspension. This decreases un-sprung weight and increases grip, allowing the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ top speed to be over 217 mph. On your way there, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 0-60 mph will flash by in under 2.8 seconds.
Inspired by Lamborghinis Squadra Corse racing program, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Engine engine is now accessed with quick-release pins. Under that cover lies a 770 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque. The intake and cylinder heads are all-new, with port-matched intake and exhaust systems. Titanium intake valves are lighter, allowing for a redline of 8,500 rpm. You will be at 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and 124 mph arrives in 8.6 seconds…It will go faster than 217 mph, so we wonder who will be first to achieve the true top speed.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Transmission
A decade ago, every automaker embraced the dual-clutch automatic. Seen as the gearbox of the future, Lamborghini considered building one for the Aventador. But if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Transmission uses a single dry clutch. Known as ISR, the Independent Shift Rods are controlled along with the clutch. Not only is it a proven design, but it is also half the weight of a dual-clutch transmission. The latest version of Haldex AWD uses mechanical Torsen differentials front and rear to make sure all four tires get roasted. The active center differential can send 100% of engine torque north in a few milliseconds.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Interior
If you intend to build a track-ready supercar, sacrifices must be made. Leather is still available, but Alcantara covers any surface that is not carbon fiber. Speaking of carbon, it is used for the structure of the cockpit along with the door panels, roof panels, instrument cluster, and even the floorboard. While it may look and feel like a coupe, the top panels are easily stowed under the hood. The seats are ready for your racing harness, and door handles have been replaced by pull straps.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Brakes
If you need to stop in a hurry, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Brakes use traditional vacuum boosting. This pressurizes 6-piston front calipers. Behind the front wheels are 15.7 carbon-ceramic rotors. Four-piston calipers squeeze 15.0″ rotors on the rear. All four rotors are 1.5″ thick to dissipate heat. This is perfect for street use, but cast iron units would be better suited for track use. The ABS system is tied into the stability control to allow the brakes to act along with the active aerodynamics to keep you safe.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Standout Features
Starting with the ALA system, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ standout features are intense. Both rear wheels can steer independently of each other. Combined with the cornering forces induced by the spoilers, it offers more cornering confidence than any other V12 supercar. A curb weight of 3,472 lbs is impressive considering the big V12, All Wheel Drive and the creature comforts found within. The final measure of grip comes from Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. They measure 255/30/20 front and 355/25/21 rear. To fit such massive rubber, the wheels are 20’x9″ front and 21″x13″ rear.
