As V12 engines disappeared from the supercar world, a few manufacturers stood their ground and made cars with screaming V12s, one of the reasons the Lamborghini Aventador has had enthusiasts drooling at it ever since its unveiling. With its replacement, the Lamborghini Revuelto, Lamborghini showed that they're not giving up on the V12, soon introducing a powertrain combining an all-new V12 engine and a plug-in hybrid electric motor. More of the Revuelto to come. Let's shift our focus back to the Lamborghini Aventador. Certainly, the Lamborghini Aventador is impressive, but the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ takes it to a whole new level. The 70-horsepower power bump to 770 horsepower gives it rapid-fire performance, and its exterior aesthetic appeal, enhanced by aggressive aerodynamic angular contours and lines, epitomizes the essence of a high-performance design. Inside, the Aventador SVJ is a symphony of cutting-edge design seamlessly blending the luxury of a high-end supercar with sleek aesthetics reminiscent of a fighter jet cockpit with its myriad of switches and controls. An attention-grabbing appearance, exceptional performance, and an interior guaranteed to fill you with the adrenaline to push the car to its limits. Is there any other reason you need to reaffirm your decision to buy a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ? Upon its release in 2018, Lamborghini initially priced it at $517,700 and allowed buyers to add all available extras, pushing the final cost to approximately $700,000. However, due to its limited availability and desirability, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has retained its value over the years, and there are no signs of its market crashing. Some special editions even sell for figures averaging a million dollars. But before we tell you which ones, let's delve into the origins of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
Seeing the Lamborghini Murcielago go off in 2010 broke the hearts of many enthusiasts, especially Lamborghini devotees. Later that year, Lamborghini unveiled the Lamborghini Aventador in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy, known for being the Italian Manufacturer's home where the Aventador SVJ was made during its tenure. After its debut in Italy, the Aventador was revealed to the world at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Production had already started as Lamborghini announced that deliveries would begin in the second half of 2011. Lamborghini announced the first iteration of the Aventador that same year, destined to be the Aventador LP 700-4, followed by the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster in 2013. In 2015, the Aventador SV (SuperVeloce) LP-750-4 was announced, and its roadster variant followed it the following year. Also, in 2015, the Aventador S LP 740-4 was unveiled, and like with previous iterations, Lamborghini made a Roadster variant in 2017. The designation LP stands for longitudinal position (Longitudinale Posteriore in Italian), indicating the engine's longitudinal placement in the rear. The following number indicates the engine's horsepower, and the last denotes the driven wheels. Built as a track-focused version of the Lamborghini Aventador S and Aventador SV, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ (SuperVeloce Jota) was unveiled at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Lamborghini designated it the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ LP 770-4 title, evoking the 770 horsepower that soon made it a force to reckon with, snatching track titles and setting new records. The Aventador SVJ's Roadster iteration was unveiled later in 2019. The Aventador SVJ coupe, manufactured by Lamborghini from 2018 to 2021, had a production run resulting in 900 examples.
Due to engine remapping, reworking, and a new titanium exhaust, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ boasts a monstrous 770 horsepower from its 6.5-liter V12, the same engine used in other Aventador variants. That's not all, though. The SVJ's engine also produces a gut-wrenching 531 lb.ft of torque, which gives it incredible acceleration throughout the rev range. Speaking of acceleration, 0-60 mph takes a staggering 2.8 seconds, and top speed is electronically limited to 219 mph. Part of the reason why any Lamborghini Aventador, including the Aventador SVJ, is engaging to drive is its 7-speed automatic transmission. Lamborghini describes it as an automatic manual hybrid that utilizes independent shift rods for exceptional shift speeds that rival some dual-clutch transmissions. Each gear shift delivers a neck-snapping transition into the next gear, which some owners and drivers have criticized in the past but have grown to love, as not many cars can provide such an experience. The extensive use of carbon fiber and other weight reduction measures on the Aventador SVJ enables it to weigh significantly less than other Aventador iterations, weighing in at 3,362 pounds. This gives it a class-leading power-to-weight ratio measured at one horsepower for every 4.4 pounds.
Lamborghini has always made some of the most intuitive yet dramatic interiors, and the one on the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is no exception. Like the exterior, the interior design is derived directly from aeronautics, blending creativity and technology in every element. Lamborghini says the Aventador SVJ drew inspiration from the Lockheed Martin F35 Lightning, and as you flip the ignition button cover, you can almost feel the rush felt by the F35 Lightning pilots as they prepare for take-off. Though not adjustable, the seats provide the exact level of comfort and support you'd expect with nearly 800 horsepower behind you. They also have an excellent seating position, allowing easy access to the car's controls when needed and a clear view outside the car. While carbon fiber sets the tone, Alcantara and leather upholstery provide a luxurious contrast, befitting a $700,000 supercar. The center console flows seamlessly into the dashboard from between the seats and houses the car's controls. The average car buyer wouldn't fail to notice and complain about the 7-inch infotainment display, but it wouldn't bother any supercar buyer. Bet Lamborghini wouldn't have put it there if not for the rising necessity of having an infotainment display in new cars. It's common for high-performance supercar manufacturers not to install floor mats in the name of weight saving, but this is not the case with the Lamborghini Aventador. Uniquely designed, the floor mats have hexagonal patterns closely resembling the stitching on the seats, adding a touch of visual interest.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ marked the debut of Lamborghini's Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) design, adding aerodynamic enhancements to the Aventador SVJ's design and enhancing its aesthetic charm. The front end is a sharpened silhouette sitting lower and wider with more pronounced vents that give it an attacking intent, like a bull raging toward a matador. Underneath the front bumper is a more aggressive splitter bearing an ALA emblem at the center, evoking the purpose for which it was designed to improve downforce at the front of the car, pressing it down onto the road, thus increasing traction and improving overall stability and handling. In addition to a revised front bumper, the ALA design incorporates a bespoke rear wing on the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. The wing is the pièce de résistance at the rear end. Besides complementing the dramatic rear bumper and engine cover, its double-wing design optimizes airflow depending on driving conditions, thus enhancing the car's performance. The side profile takes after the front end's low profile, giving the Aventador SVJ an aggressive stance, which is enhanced by larger carbon fiber side skirts and prominent air vents that feed air efficiently to the engine. Wrapping up the exterior design, the SVJ's exterior is adorned with exposed carbon fiber elements, highlighting the car's lightweight construction and infusing a touch of raw, industrial beauty.
Implementing advanced technology features on the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ significantly enhanced its performance, excelling in every driving situation as the driver needs. Due to its ALA design architecture, it is 40% more aerodynamic than the Aventador SV. The front wing incorporates active flaps to reduce front downforce and minimize drag to reach top speed. It also dynamically enhances airflow channeled along the underbody. At the bottom of the wing, there's a vent with active aero flaps that directs air to the exit air slots accordingly to minimize or maximize downforce or drag. The engine and transmission aside, the push rod magneto-rheologic active front and rear suspension on the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ with electronically controlled horizontal dampers and springs is a marvel. The dampers constantly adjust their stiffness in milliseconds, reacting to road imperfections and the driver's driving style, resulting in an incredibly controlled ride. Sure, entertainment is necessary in a car, especially on a long road trip, but would you choose music over the sweet melody of a V12 engine behind you, enhanced by a harmonious titanium exhaust? The infotainment display in the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ better serves as a drive telematics display, complementing the digital instrument cluster that displays backlighting in response to the driving mode.
Being a flagship supercar, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ doesn't come cheap, and its recent discontinuation will most likely see prices skyrocketing. Adding to its exclusivity and price tag, the fact that Lamborghini produced 900 SVJs makes it all the more desirable for anyone who has been banking on buying one for the longest time. Currently, prices are similar to during production time, averaging around $700,000. Some special editions, such as the Aventador SVJ 63, sell for almost twice that. Additionally, highly specced units with options such as unique factory colors and interior detailing will attract high prices.
