The Aventador SVJ was able to set a Nurburgring record lap time of 6:44.97!
Lamborghini guarantees to uncover its new Aventador SVJ in Monterey one month from now. In any case, before it does, it’s affirmed that the ragingest of Raging Bulls has asserted another lap record at the Nürburgring. At 6:44.97, the SuperVeloce Jota lapped the Nordschleife over two seconds speedier than sister-organization Porsche’s 911 GT2 RS, which has held the record as of recently at 6:47.3.
Restraining the bull in the China shop that is Germany’s “Green Hell” was Lamborghini’s test pilot Marco Mapelli, who assumed control over the activity from the incredible Valentino Balboni. To quiet any potential faultfinders, the Italian automaker says it caught it on record, and the telemetry on a VBOX-Racelogic framework. Also, Pirelli was available to loan its aptitude and the P Zero Trofeo R tires that will be offered as an alternative over the standard P Zero Corsa elastic. It’s not the principal session in the blow for blow kin contention amongst Zuffenhausen and Sant’Agata. Before the GT2, the record had a place with the Huracan Performante, which thusly removed the record from the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Those letters remain for Super Veloce (or “super quick”), with the new letter J remaining for Jota – a handle which has just been connected to a bunch of the most outrageous V12 Lamborghinis in the organization’s history, from the Miura to the Diablo and the coincidental Aventador J speedster in 2012.
Terminology aside, the Aventador SVJ gloats a second-age dynamic streamlined features framework called Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) to give it the downforce it needs in the curves and the lessening in delay straight lines. Inspiration is relied upon to originate from the current 6.5-liter normally suctioned V12, which created 690 horsepower in the first Aventador, 730 in the current Aventador S, 740 in the SuperVeloce, and as much as 759 in the Aventador-based Centenario. The jury (with a capital J) is still out on how much muscle the new SVJ will pack, however it’ll require a decent 789 hp on the off chance that it stands to keep pace with most outstanding opponent Ferrari’s 812 Superfast – out and about, or around the Nordschleife.
“The Aventador SVJ takes the Jota postfix, following the Lamborghini custom for signifying a car’s track-centered ability. This new car is the union of Lamborghini advances to create a super sports car that rises above current execution benchmarks,” said Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali. “Its residency as the Nürburgring lap time record holder, even before its uncovering amid the Monterey Car Week in California in August, supports Lamborghini’s skill in applying superlative plan designing and earth shattering innovations.
