We haven’t talked about Lamborghini in quite some time, since the Urus came out. However, Audi’s Italian cousins haven’t just been sitting around drinking espresso and eating biscotti. Instead of what sounds like a lovely afternoon, Lamborghini has been working on a very serious new car and it’s just been caught while wearing some serious aero and heavy camouflage. That car is the upcoming Lamborghini Aventador SV J. (We don’t own the spy photos but you can seen them here)
For those unaware for Lamborghini’s nomenclature, “SV” stands for “SuperVeloce”, which roughly translates to “Super Speed” in Italian. The “J” is short for “Jota”, which is the Spanish word for the letter J… SuperVeloce Lamborghinis have always been the most powerful, the most extreme and fastest cars the engineers in Sant’Agata can come up with. And Jota models have always been the most hardcore, race-inspired models. So this Lamborghini Aventador SV J should be the absolute craziest car in the brand’s lineup.
Seen in these photos, the Aventador SV J has a some pretty hefty aerodynamics. Its rear wing is absolutely enormous, almost obnoxiously so, which makes us think that this new Aventador will have insane amounts of power and top-speed capability. It also has a rear diffuser that looks like it’s been designed to till the earth beneath it. There’s also a massive front splitter and large center-lock wheels.
Autocar, being the people who’ve released these spy photos, seem to think that the Lamborghini Aventador SV J could pack as much as 780 hp. That would make it one of the most powerful cars on the market, with only the Bugatti Chiron, Dodge Demon, Ferrari 812 Superfast and the McLaren Senna being more powerful. It will also likely get the same seven-speed single-clutch automated manual gearbox and all-wheel drive. So it should fire to 60 mph in well under three seconds. Considering all of the aero and lightweight materials used, the Aventador SV J could very well become the fastest car in the world to 60.
