Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Covers 1/4 Mile In 10.59s, Pulls A Wheelie

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.

    Could I possibly be hired to distill these clickbait Slagtimes videos down to the friggen four seconds we clicked in to see?!
    Show the launch and get on with it! Who wants to sift through an eternity of this guy drone on about his glamorous day?! He ain’t no Doug Demuro!

  • Mr. EP9

    That’s a weak wheelie. Anyway, for something that wasn’t engineered to go fast in a straight line, that’s not bad actually. I mean, it ain’t beating a Demon, a 720S, or a Tesla at the strip but that’s to be expected.

    • Matt

      If you imagine the forces required to lift the front wheels off the ground (in an AWD car nonetheless) its very impressive, regardless of how little air the tyres got.

      • donald seymour

        Plus all that added down-force.

        • Matt

          To be fair downforce doesn’t have an effect until the car is traveling at speed.

    I mean, I don’t own a Lambo, or could never afford to buy one, but jeez, does anyone else here think those cluster graphics are cheesy? Sorta reminds me of a 90’s Sega arcade game.

    • Dariush

      they are but it’s a choice, they know very well it’s not the most refined, advanced graphic possible but the average Lambo buyer has very different tastes from most fairly cultured people ^^

      • Bill Nguyen

        Yeah, I mean it’s supposed to be garish, right? Just look how outrageous Lambos are on the outside, they couldn’t put these classy gfx on the inside… It just wouldn’t be suitable.

        • Knotmyrealname

          But garish and something from this century would be better, no?

          • Bill Nguyen

            I actually think they’re kinda cool. Like something from an 80s sci fi flick!

  • Bill Nguyen

    And the award for the tiniest wheelie ever goes to…

  • BGM

    Another video that should have been 30 seconds. Douchebags talking for 10 minutes…

    But… this is faster than hypercars…
