Lamborghini Drops Aventador SVJ’s Onboard Video Of New Nurburgring Lap Record

Following an earlier confirmation of the new lap record at the Nurburgring, Lamborghini has released the onboard footage from the Aventador SVJ’s 6:44.97 run.

With Marco Mapelli sitting behind the wheel, the upcoming Aventador SVJ managed to lap the 12.8-mile long German track 2.3 seconds faster than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which held the unofficial production car lap record so far with a 6:47.3.

Lamborghini also offered the first bit of official information on the upcoming SV Jota, saying that their latest creation was subjected to a significant diet that resulted in “the best weight-to-power ratio of only 1,98 kg/hp” through the extensive use of lightweight materials.

The Italian car maker also added that the bodywork of the Aventador SVJ was reworked entirely in order to fit their ALA active aero agenda, which debuted in the Huracan Performante.

The chassis was then re-engineered in order to take advantage of the new hardware, including the four-wheel drive system, rear-wheel steering and ESC system. The steering has also been retuned when compared to the Aventador SV. Specially-developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires are fitted as standard, with the record car wearing a set of optional and super-sticky P Zero Trofeo Rs.

According to this morning’s leak, the naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 has been updated to produce 759hp (770PS), 20hp more than the SV version. Combined with the official weight-to-power ratio of 1,98 kg/hp, this could mean that the new Aventador SV J tips the scales at 1,524kg (3359lbs), presumably dry, making it 1 (one) kg lighter than the SV.

We’ll have to wait until next month to find out if this is true, as Lamborghini will reveal in full the new Aventador SVJ at the Monterey Car Week in California.
