When Lamborghini unveiled the Aventador SVJ last year, they made sure to let the world know just how amazing of a performer it is, both in a straight line as well as on a track.
So, aside from lapping the Nurburgring in just 6:44.97 (provided that you are tier one driver material, of course), you can also take this car to the drag strip and put down impressive quarter-mile times.
Which is no surprise when you have 770 PS (759 HP) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque at your disposal that are enough to take you to a 350 km/h (217 mph) top speed and do a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds. This, ladies and gentlemen, is about as fast as you can go in a “non-hypercar”.
Now, if you’ve never seen the Aventador SVJ at work in a straight line, you definitely should check out this recent 1/4 mile test performed by DragTimes. Come to think of it, you should take a look anyway.
With the help of its Corsa mode and Launch Control, this grey SVJ got off the line so violently that its front wheels actually came off the tarmac, which is something you might expect in something like a Dodge Demon – but an all-wheel drive Aventador? Well, AWD or not, the SVJ seems to be a different type of animal compared to any other Aventador.
Here’s what the VBox recorded during the run: 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.81 sec, 0-100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.05 sec, 60-130 mph (96 – 209 km/h) in 6.84 sec and 100-200 km/h (62 – 124 mph) in 5.95 sec. And a quarter mile time in 10.59 seconds, at 134.66 mph (216.71 km/h).
Now, probably no one buys an Aventador SVJ to go drag racing, but it’s nice to know that without any mods at all you have a very serious contender. Plus, you can always impress bystanders and/or your friends by doing a wheelie. In a factory Lambo. Yep, that’s mental.
