Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Spied, Could Have Around 800 HP

The Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota has been scooped while undergoing testing in Europe.

Despite being dressed in swirly camouflage, there’s no mistaking this for an ordinary Aventador as the high-performance model has been equipped with a new front bumper, aerodynamic side skirts and lightweight wheels that are similar to the ones used on the Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce.

Moving further back, we can see large side scoops and a distinctive rear wing. The model also has a massive diffuser and a ventilated rear fascia which has two exhaust tips jetting out the back.

Lamborghini has been tight-lipped about the model but previous reports have suggested the car could use the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva system that is found on the Huracán Performante. The system adjusts the car’s aerodynamics to either maximize drag for increased stability or reduce drag for faster acceleration.

While Lamborghini is keeping details under wraps, the model is expected to use a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine. The exact performance rating remains unclear but reports have suggested the Jota could have around 800 PS (588 kW). This seems well within the realm of possibility as the Aventador SV Coupe had 750 PS (552 kW) and 690 Nm (507 lb-ft) of torque. This enabled the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and onto a top speed in excess of 350 km/h (217 mph).

Given the fact that the Jota will become the most extreme Aventador ever produced, we can expect it will easily eclipse the numbers posted by the Superveloce. Of course, by how much remains a mystery.

The Aventador SV Jota is expected to be unveiled later this year and it could make an appearance at the Paris Motor Show in October. Production will likely be extremely limited and it wouldn’t be surprising if the entire production run has already been sold out.

    I’m really digging the wing on this

    I don’t care if a Tesla is faster, this is cooler!

      Don’t let SE3Y see this. He will no doubt tell you you’re wrong and that the Tesla looks better with less of a carbon footprint or something akin to that.

        This ain’t an article based around Tesla’s though, so he wouldn’t even go on it.

  • The active aerodynamic would improve this a LOT, and added the four wheel steering. Probably the best handling car Lamborghini ever made to date.
