Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Foreshadows A Possible Roadster Version

The latest ultimate machine made by Lamborghini is called the Aventador SVJ, and it’s the current record holder for production cars at the Nurburgring.

Presented to the world at the Monterey Car Week a few days ago, it builds upon the Aventador S, to which it adds a few aerodynamic and mechanical enhancements, in addition to a bump in power.

The Aventador SVJ benefits from the active aerodynamic system that originally premiered in the Huracan Performante. There’s rear-wheel steering, too, which improves handling at low speeds and allows it to corner better under pressure, and engineers optimized the seven-speed gearbox to suit the increased power and torque.

The naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 now has an output of 770 PS (759 hp / 566 kW) at 8,500 rpm, and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque at 6,750 rpm. Weighing 1,525 kg (3,362 lbs) dry, the supercar goes from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, hits the 200 km/h (124 mph) mark in 8.6 seconds and maxes out at more than 350 km/h (217 mph).

The Aventador SVJ is offered solely as a Coupe. Production is limited to 900 units and pricing starts from €349,116 ($405,678) in Europe, without tax, and $517,770 (€445,368) in the United States.

With its body style limited for now, it was obvious that someone, somewhere, would render it as a Roadster. The open-top model is the work of Aksyonov Nikita, and you don’t have to be a nuclear scientist to figure out the changes compared to the fixed roof version.

So far, Lamborghini hasn’t said anything about an open-top SVJ. However, given that the Huracan Performante is offered as a Roadster, too, we wouldn’t totally rule that out.

  • Mr. EP9

    Of course they are going to make a roadster version of it. They did it for the Huracan Performante and the Aventador SV so why wouldn’t the SVJ get one as well?

    • Exactly, it’s called milking the profits.

        Let me know when they make a topless version of the Urus.
