  • Lamborghini ALA 2.0 on Aventador SVJ

    The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the current king of the Nürburgring Nordschleife, in no small part thanks to its wild active aerodynamic system the company calls Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva 2.0. A video published last October by the Italian firm shows exactly how the system works when a driver takes the supercar to its limits on the track and explains why it's so effective. Simply, ALA 2.0 is a combination of aero trickery that makes the Aventador SVJ a slick thing in the straights and a well-planted machine while cornering. Compared to hydraulic systems in other cars, the firm says...

    I didn’t kill the little orange traffic cone on purpose, but nor did I have much regret for its demise, which was in the name of science. Or at least, research. Lamborghini requested that I run my first laps in the new track-centric Aventador SVJ (Super Veloce Jota, a name borrowed from its...

    Before its public debut at Pebble Beach in August, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is already well known for one thing: it's the quickest street-legal production car around the famed Nürburgring. But, it will also be the last Lamborghini model to sport a V-12 engine without some form of...

  • Lamborghini Aventador SVJ during Nürburgring lap record attempt

    Lamborghini's upcoming Aventador SVJ has lapped the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in a time of 6:44.97, the automaker confirmed Thursday. That's a new record for production cars, and it's over 2.0 seconds quicker than the previous record of 6:47.3 set by a Porsche 911 GT2 RS last September. Doing the driving was Lamborghini tester Marco Mapelli, the same driver who set the Huracán Performante's 6:57 time in 2016. And on hand to certify the time was independent firm Remak, using GPS and VBOX-Racelogic data. Lamborghini equipped the Aventador SVJ with Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires, which...

There are rumors an announcement of a new production car record for the 'Ring will coincide with the launch of the car that set it, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
