When throughout are going softer, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ stays true to its V12 self, howling unfashionably into the longer term. As I write, a lot of Lamborghini Aventador SVJs are belting down the primary straight at Estoril race observe, a couple of yards from me, and the noise is extra race assembly than observe day. That’s uncommon on the planet of manufacturing automobiles, to the extent that there’s a ‘final of the interceptors’ really feel concerning the Aventador, with its large mid-mounted naturally-aspirated V12 and all the promise and compromise such an engine brings.Positive, Ferrari nonetheless makes a naturally-aspirated V12, as will Aston Martin for a short time, however neither in fairly the identical setting as this. There’s a distinction between a brilliant GT automotive and this, a brilliant sports activities automotive, a supercar of the unique sense, partly figuratively, but in addition actually: an Aventador’s mid-mounted engine breathes via a a lot shorter exhaust than a front-engined GT, so its bark is louder. It’s a reality which means a automotive like this can by no means be ‘so what’.It’s essential to keep in mind that, I believe; no matter else you concentrate on a contemporary Lamborghinis and the best way they’re used. Solely 5% of Aventador consumers will commonly present their automotive a race observe.Pity. As a result of if homeowners did they’d actually really feel how briskly it was, quite than simply understand it set a 6min 44.97sec lap of the … properly, you already know the place.It does that by being extra highly effective, lighter, extra aerodynamically intelligent, dynamically tweaked and having extra grippy tyres than earlier than. The complete engineering gamut, then.Let’s begin with the engine. The 6.5-litre V12 has titanium inlet valves, a lighter flywheel, much less inside friction, an 8700rpm limiter and now makes 759bhp at 8500rpm. Extra importantly, although, peak torque was at 5500rpm on the Aventador SV however then tailed away quickly; the SVJ makes extra torque via your entire rev vary – earlier than and together with 5500rpm – however its 531lb ft peak doesn’t arrive till 6750rpm and its curve is flatter after that; so significantly extra torque reaches the wheels on a regular basis.These wheels are lighter, as are a number of different physique elements, so this (dry) is a 1525kg automotive, though given a fuelled Huracan Performante was 200kg greater than its claimed dry weight once we put it on our scales final 12 months, you’ll be able to think about the place this can find yourself.Chassis adjustments see springs unchanged, however dampers and anti-roll bars stiffer, and the torque cut up usually three% extra biased to the rear; though it varies anyway. The entrance is disconnected fully throughout braking, to imply the one steering wheel inputs are from braking, and there’s energetic rear-steer.Then there’s the improved aero, which brings the SVJ 40% extra downforce than an Aventador S however, considerably, is a second-generation ‘ALA’ (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva 2.zero), which might push turbulent air out beneath the rear spoiler, to stall it, lowering downforce and drag, and which it may well cut up from left to proper. In cornering, then, the SVJ will make extra downforce on the within of the bend, which retains the physique flatter and helps turn-in. Total lateral g isn’t essentially elevated (you’d simply put a large wing on in case you needed to do this), nevertheless it apparently means much less lock is required to get right into a flip, and given much less utilized lock, extra energy may be utilized, making nook exit faster. I don’t suppose it makes quite a lot of distinction to an total lap time: between one and three seconds round a close to seven-minute lap, in keeping with an engineer.Making an even bigger distinction is the choice, for the primary time, of race-derived Pirelli P Zero Trofeo tyres, quite than Corsas, as on different Aventadors. It’s the primary time the Aventador has been provided on this rubber, which alone is value round 10 seconds on a protracted lap.The SVJ is restricted to 900 items, and prices £360,000.
