Even with the newly unveiled Aventador SVJ, Lamborghini is falling behind other exotic carmarkers when it comes to offering a standalone, limited production hypercar.
The information was confirmed to Autocar by the company’s head honcho, Stefano Domenicali, who wasn’t too keen on dropping more details except for the fact that they’re considering an “extreme aero” hypercar offered in very limited numbers.
If given the green light for production, then it would be “in the same vein of Centenario and Veneno”, said Domenicali. Still, it’s a big step between being interested and actually making a limited production hypercar, as Lambo’s boss eventually admitted that their main priority is series production supercars.
Meanwhile, the Italian automaker is getting ready to start shipping the first examples of the Aventador SVJ. The SVJ unveiled last week in California and is the most advanced and track-focused derivative of the flagship supercar.
It’s capable of going from naught to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds and up to a top speed in excess of 350 km/h (217 mph). Also, thanks to the active aerodynamics, rear-wheel steering and other changes compared to the Aventador S, the SVJ is an absolute beast in between the apexes, and managed to lap the Nurburgring in 6:44.97, thus becoming the fastest production car on the German track.
