Having been around since 2011, the Lamborghini Aventador is one of the oldest supercars in production.
Nevertheless, the Italian company has made sure that it remains competitive during these years.
Apart from the standard Coupe and Roadster models, which were revamped last year with the launch of the Aventador S, it has also rolled out several limited editions, including the Aventador J, Veneno and Centenario.
The latest, and arguably greatest, is the Aventador SVJ. Not only is it the fastest of them all, but it will probably stay in history as the swansong of the series, too.
Starting with the exterior, one can easily tell it’s a special machine. It comes with active aerodynamics, which also enhance the overall design, while hidden away from our eyes are other mods, including rear-wheel steering.
Aided by the 770 PS (759 hp / 566 kW) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque produced by the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12, the Aventador SVJ goes from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in a mere 2.8 seconds and tops out at 350 km/h (217 mph).
That sounds very impressive on paper, but what does it look like in the real world? MotorsportMagazine had the chance to drive the Raging Bull’s flagship and used the launch control function to sprint from a standstill all the way up to 271 km/h (168 mph).
Okay, that’s way of its top speed, but still, it gets there faster than you can say “Aventador” and only needs 5 of the 7 speeds of its transmission to do so, as you can see in the following video.
