Only 900 versions of the (currently) fastest production car to lap the world famous Nurburgring will be made, as the extremely limited Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and even rarer SVJ 63 debut today at the 2018 Monterey Car Week.
The SVJ 63 commemorates the year that Lamborghini was founded, and only 63 of these models will be sold, each one sporting extremely noticeable exterior graphics and extra carbon fiber.
The rest of the SVJs sport some pretty important features, and a V12 engine is plonked right in the middle of it all, making 770 hp at an insane 8,500 rpm and 530 pound-feet of torque. It means this car hits 62 MPH in just 2.8 seconds, which is insane when you think about it. Keep pressing and it’ll hit a top speed of 217 MPH.
The Aventador SVJ is about more than just that naturally aspirated engine, it’s about aerodynamics and grip. New active aero technology allows for air-flow to be directed in specific directions over the vehicle, improving downforce and the car can go from full downforce to none in just 500 milliseconds. The car features Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, or optional track ready P Zero Trofeo R rubber.
So many parts of the Aventador SVJ have been beefed up, stiffened or retuned for improved responsiveness, including stiffer anti-roll bars, retuned rear-wheel steering for better control while braking, 3-percent more torque going to the rear axles and a higher damping force range.
It’s not a cheap car, at $517,770 before delivery, but it’ll surely be a fair price to pay to the right person who wants an ultra-rare Lambo that can achieve 6:44.97 around the “Green Hell” of the Nurburgring.
