Watch the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Bust the Nürburgring Lap Record

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ at the Nürburgring Nordschleife

Lamborghini is planning to unveil a lighter and faster Aventador later this summer, but the automaker is already working on this raging bull's resumé.

Like its smaller sibling, the Aventador SVJ (SVJ stands for Superveloce Jota) will feature the brand's Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) active aerodynamics system with aero vectoring.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the new king of the Nürburgring, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.

And if you sit down and do the math, you might be more than a bit intrigued. Nevertheless, we were a bit surprised to see how much the Lamborghini seems to dance under braking.

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ will be unveiled at the Monterey Car Week in California, which takes place at the end of August. Using lighter materials and adding power to the SV's 6.5L V12.

Jose Mourinho: Liverpool Must Win The League Now
United States media reports say as many as 100,000 fans could pack Michigan Stadium for this clash between the EPL rivals. It's an impressive building, it's cool. "It's pre-season, but it's United against Liverpool , so big game".

Lamborghini engineers have focused on the power-to-weight ratio and handling characteristics of the SVJ. Just 1.98 kg/hp. A little math shows that means the SVJ has either lost 37.5 kg compared to the SV, gained 19 hp, or found a balance somewhere in the middle.

That lap time makes the Lambo faster than the Nio EP9 as well; that EV put in a run of 6 minutes and 45.9 seconds.

Watch the in-car video showing the entire 6m 44.97-second lap with factory driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel. It is said to be stiffer with retuned steering, and it wears Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires - though for the lap record, optional Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R rubber was used. Compared to the standard auto, the SVJ features a deeper front wing, wider side skirts, motorsport-style single center wheel nuts, and also Lamborghini's ALA 2.0 active aerodynamics system.

Elsewhere, the supercar features enhanced four-wheel drive system, rear-wheel steering and Electronic Stability Control (ESC), whereas the steering is said to have been re-tuned. It's changing that reputation with the Huracan Performante first and now the Aventador SVJ.
