Lamborghini officially unveils Aventador SVJ
The addition of the number 63 after the SVJ designation of some of these new Aventador flagships has even more significance. In the first instance, it refers to the year 1963 which is when Lamborghini was founded, and it also refers to the limited production run of just 63 units of these most exclusive of Lamborghinis. There’s an awful lot of carbon fiber on display as well as plenty of less-than-subtle graphics that will definitely make this one stand out in just about any crowd, but the main focus of this car is power and performance. Under the hood of the Aventador SVJ is a V-12 engine putting out 770 horsepower and 530 lb.-ft. of torque, which translates into a 0 to 62 mph time of just 2.8 seconds and a top speed in excess of 217 mph. While there are plenty of cars these days that can claim similar or better numbers than those, it’s the way this beauty handles that will really set it apart. And we don’t just have to take Lamborghini’s word for it either as the SVJ is the current Nurburgring production vehicle lap record holder with a time of 6:44.97.
