Lamborghini Details Aventador SVJ’s Active Aero Magic On Video

The SVJ is the most aggressive version of the Aventador and a loud send-off, not only to the model but to the naturally aspirated V12 as well, as the next model is expected to be powered by an electrified V12 powertrain.

For the SVJ, Lamborghini used a more advanced version of the ALA active aero system that debuted in the Huracan Performante. Apparently it’s so effective that it enabled the supercar to lap the Nurburgring in 6:44.97 and become the (unofficial) fastest production car there.

The new ALA 2.0 features flaps that open and close, depending on conditions. The impressive aero kit has the ability to stall the massive rear wing for minimum drag, benefiting straight-line performance and, of course, top speed.

The system also features aero vectoring for better cornering grip. By independently controlling the flaps on each side, the ALA 2.0 can stall half of the rear wing while keeping the other half fully operating for maximum downforce, aiding the Aventador SVJ to corner faster and harder than ever before.

These aero revisions provide the Aventador SVJ with 40 percent more downforce and less drag compared to the Aventador SV.

Power comes from a 6.5-liter V12 that here makes 759hp (770PS) and 531lb-ft (720Nm). Lamborghini claims it accelerates from a standstill to 62mph (100km/h) sprint in 2.8 seconds and to 124mph (200km/h) in 8.6 seconds, and that it hits a top speed of 217mph (349km/h).
