Listen To The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Fire Up And Rev Its V12

It’s been a couple of weeks since Lamborghini introduced the Aventador SVJ to the world, and the first unit of the record-breaking supercar has already arrived at the Newport Beach dealership.

Greeted by other exotics and petrol heads alike, the Aventador SVJ fired up its sonorous naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 and was carefully driven inside.

The video shows a few revs as well, which, unlike the ones in the official promo released by the Italian firm, aren’t accompanied by any background music, editing or special effects, so what you hear is what you really get. If you are one of the 900 lucky individuals that have secured one, that is – or, more likely, just happen to see one in the flesh.

The Aventador SVJ’s V12 has been tuned to put out 759 hp (770 PS / 566 kW) and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque, which are good enough to propel it to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.8 seconds from a standstill, and up to a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).

The SVJ benefits from a lot of clever engineering, including the active aerodynamics, rear-wheel steering that allows it to perform better at high speeds and improves its handling at low speeds, and an optimized gearbox.

All the aforementioned features make the Aventador SVJ an absolute beast and helped it secure the lap record on the Nurburgring, completing the course in 6 minutes and 44:95 seconds.

      apparently parts of Germany is one such location. it is pretty amazing, i just cant see how they can top this with their next gen Aventador, which is due out in 2022 i believe, or near to that year.

      On tracks, obviously… This is not a car made for public roads. And occasionally flooring it for several seconds on an empty flat unrestricted highway is also certainly not what this car is designed for. That’s for youtubers…

  • Six_Tymes

    i never liked calling high end cars beasts like many do, since its a popular word to use, ill use once more, this is a fine sexy beast. I love it.

    Running out of letters. And where is its replacement?

    Feathering the throttle and it sounds utterly raw, even more than the older SV.
