Valentino Balboni Release His Exhaust For The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

Lamborghini’s legendary former chief test driver Valentino Balboni has unveiled his aftermarket exhaust system for the Aventador SVJ.

Balboni launched his first exhaust system for the Aventador SV back in 2016 and only ever built 30 units. Much like the system for the ‘regular’ SV, the Aventador SVJ’s VB exhaust looks more like a musical instrument than it does an exhaust.

The system is crafted entirely in titanium and weighs a mere 8.8 lbs (4.66 kg) which Balboni says lowers the supercar’s overall weight by 1 per cent, translating to a weight saving of around 33 lbs (15 kg) over a standard exhaust. We’re willing to bet that Balboni’s exhaust also makes the SVJ sound even better than it does when it leaves the Sant’Agata factory.

Production will be capped to just 63 units worldwide. A further 15 ‘signature edition’ systems will be manufactured in Italy.

It remains to be seen how much the Valentino Balboni exhaust system for the Aventador SVJ costs, but we doubt it’s cheap and would expect a price easily into the five-figure mark. When you consider that the SVJ Coupe starts at almost $520,000 while the Roadster is priced from over $570,000, we’re sure owners have enough spare change to purchase one.

Lamborghini has limited production of the SVJ to just 900 coupes and 800 roadsters. Both versions are powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 with 770 hp and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque, allowing for a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 216 mph (350 km/h).
