Extreme Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Will Mix Active Aero With Near 800 HP

Lamborghini brought the Aventador SV Jota at the Nurburgring for the necessary high-speed testing, flooding along the way the ears of our spies with angry V12 melodies.

Set to revive the historic Jota nameplate, Lamborghini’s most extreme Aventador to date is going to offer breathtaking performance, both on and off the track. The goal for Lamborghini is to create an even better Superveloce and if the rumors prove to be true, then they are on the right path of making it happen.

Even with the full body wrap applied, the Aventador SV Jota can’t hide its very aggressive aero agenda: the front end features a really deep splitter while the rear gets a full-width diffuser and a new setup for the exhausts that now exit from the middle, just like the Huracan Performante. There’s a big wing too, in case you didn’t notice it.

Lamborghini will almost certainly use the same active aero trickery, first seen on the Performante, on the Jota. Lamborghini calls the system ALA, which utilizes hollow components that let the air travel through them on demand, therefore altering the amount of downforce needed depending on the driving conditions.

The naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 will also receive a power upgrade, from the 730hp it currently makes in the Aventador S to around 780 to 790hp. The single-clutch automatic transmission is also expected to be upgraded.

So far Lamborghini has used the Jota nameplate only on its most hardcore and rare models, like the Miura Jota and the Diablo Jota. This makes the upcoming Aventador SV Jota even more special indeed, with Lamborghini expected to keep production numbers really limited.

The most extreme version of the Lamborghini Aventador is expected to debut later this year, so expect to hear more from it in the coming months.

    I love the profile with the wing, it’s so Lamborghini

    • Andrewthecarguy

      Agreed. Makes this already sinister Aventador just so bullish.
      Also signals the end for the Aventador and the next V12 Lambo must be on the horizon.

    800HP is excessive.

    So will it be faster than the Huracan Performante? We’ll see.

    • Active aerodynamic of Performante mated with a bigger car? Definitely!

    how could lambo able to make cars better and better?

    Wow! Look at the sidewall of the tires on the wheels in picture 23 or 28. That’s some serious g forces on that carousel turn.

  • Six_Tymes

    this is so far looking and spec wise sounds impressive, as it should be. Nice work, I hope we get to see a full video review of it.

  • For the kid inside me, I’d like the Aventador to faster than anything elese on the road. I want this car to be as fast as my kid’s mind would think it is.

  • Really hope they nailed this one like Performante.

    • LWOAP

      I’m waiting for the inevitable “you faked your record run” like what happened with the Performante and the fanboys that blindly believed them.

      • Yeah well internet and fanboi can argue while I just enjoy beautifully crafted words of journos.

  • Vassilis

    Should be good fun.
