The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the ultimate Lamborghini Aventador model you can buy. This car is a limited edition car with only 900 units made with a base price of $517,000 before options. It features a very strong V12 engine that produces 760hp with a 0-60 time of 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 217mph. This car is quite outstanding, and is more commonly bought than other Lamborghinis because of its power.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is known to have the fastest production car lap time around the Nürburgring, which is one of the most intense race tracks ever created. This great accomplishment was mainly due to the improved ALA package. This package makes the car incredibly aerodynamic. One example of an aerodynamic improvement is the use of flaps that manipulate the way air passes over the car. These flaps open and close while driving to adjust the car in a way that will make it as aerodynamic as possible, thus making it quicker. This car can go from practically no downforce to maximum downforce in less than a second due to this package.
This car’s insane speed, and pretty light body frame, required Lamborghini engineers to add massive brakes to be able to stop this car quickly from high speeds. And indeed it stops fast, it can stop completely from 62mph in just 94 feet. This may seem as something not important, but when you are racing for the best time, every millisecond counts!
Next up we have the suspension and four wheel steering. As with most cars, body roll is a big issue. It causes unnecessary movement and oftentimes can impair the way you turn, or worse it can flip your car over. Lamborghini has gotten rid of this problem by stiffening up the suspension so that the car can not physically move out of place. Now there are some pros and cons to this. The pros: faster car, more manageable and easy around the track. The cons: makes the ride stiffer, so when you are not on the track, you will literally feel everything on the road making it a pretty rough ride. This is something to worry about on bad or unpaved roads. Back to the body roll, the stiffer suspension helps, but to top it off, they added four wheel steering. This allows for a smaller turning radius. This function works by having the rear wheels move slightly in the opposite direction of the front wheels to make your turn more percisce.
The Lamborghini Aventador is a very impressive piece of machinery, but as with most limited edition cars, they go up in value. Today you can get a used Lamborghini Aventador SVJ for around $570,000. Also, the SVJ part of the name stands for Super Veloce Jota, and as the Jota symbolizes, the Lamborghini is a beast, especially around the race track.
