The new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has taken the lap record for production cars at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Driver Marco Mapelli took on the 20.6 km track to set a new record time of 6 minutes 44.97 seconds.
LAMBORGHINI SVJ SNAPS UP NÜRBURGRING RECORD
The Aventador SVJ adopts the ‘Jota’ suffix, denoting the car’s track-focused slant. It has a higher power output and lightweight materials, giving it power-to-weight ratio of 505hp per tonne. Active aerodynamics with aero vectoring are supplemented by new aero features specific to the SVJ.
The SVJ’s set-up has been re-engineered to enhance its four-wheel drive, rear-wheel steering and stability control systems. It’s significantly stiffer than the previous Aventador LP 750-4 SV and the steering has also been retuned. Specific new Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres are standard, while the lap time record was set with optional Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyres.
