Lamborghini Aventador SVJ May Have Lapped The ‘Ring In 6:45

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has allegedly set a new production car lap record around the Nurburgring Nordschleife. The time? A blistering 6 minutes 45 seconds.

The Italian marque has been spotted testing the ultimate Aventador at the circuit on a number of occasions in recent months with the express intent of setting a new record.

Instagram user 43lambo made the record claim but at the time of writing, hasn’t offered any details about how he knows about the time. Consequently, we’re taking this claim with a grain of salt. With that being said, a time of 6:45 does seem achievable by the Aventador SVJ.

A few years ago, the original Lamborghini Aventador SV sprinted around the circuit in a shocking 6 minutes 59 seconds. In 2017, Lamborghini shocked the world after lapping the Huracan Performante around the circuit in a then-record-breaking 6:52.01.

Since then, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS has gone on to take the Nurburgring crown with a time of 6:47.

Sources assert that the Aventador SVJ is powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 just like the Aventador S but that the supercar now delivers in excess of 790 hp. It seems inevitable that Lamborghini will also strip away some unnecessary weight from the standard model to make the SVJ that little bit faster.

What we do know for sure is that the SVJ will look a hell of a lot more aggressive than all other Aventadors before it. In fact, it will be loaded with new aerodynamic parts, including a revised front bumper and splitter package, extended side skirts, bespoke engine cover, an insane rear diffuser and a massive rear wing to increase downforce.

If the car did indeed set a ‘Ring record, expect to hear all about it when the supercar is unveiled in the coming months.

    This, and the Huracan Performante may actually destroy the clumsy Lambo stigma.

    Stunning machine. Glad to see the old girl aging well. One of the few true super cars remaining on the road today. All those $1mil+ boutique posers still dont turn as many heads as a properly aggressive Lambo.
