It has just been announced that the upcoming Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has broken the Nurburgring track record for production cars!
A few years ago, the original Lamborghini Aventador SV completed a full lap at Nurburgring in 6:59.73 and was the second serial car to pass the 7-minute mark, ranking just behind the current leader, the Porsche 918 Spyder (6:57). At the end of 2016, Lamborghini shocked the whole world with a lap time performed by Huracán Performante. The top version of the smaller model drove a full lap at 6:52.01, which means it beat the record by 5 seconds.
Porsche again became the leader less than a year later with the 911 GT2 RS, which passed the racetrack in 6:47.25. Nothing has changed since then and Porsche continues to be the numer one of the legendary German racetrack.
This is expected to change in the next few weeks, as Lamborghini is planning to announce the time of their upcoming model, the Aventador SVJ. This one supposedly drove Nordschleife in a shocking 6 minutes and 45 seconds. The information was provided by 43lambo, but he has not revealed the source of this information yet.
At the heart of the upcoming Aventador SVJ will be a 6.5-litre V12 unit with 790 hp of power. Compared to the current Aventador S, the new model is set to be even lighter and has a more advanced aerodynamics for even better performance.
As we can see in spy photos, the car will get a new front bumper, an additional splitter, a large fixed rear wing, a redesigned engine cover and a completely new rear bumper with a double exhaust system. In addition, there will be much more efficient brakes and an even more stiffer and lowered suspension.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is due to have its world premiere in the coming months.
