    Re: Aventador and SV

    Aventador SVJ broke Sport Auto's GP-Kurs Hockenheim record: 1.47,3 min. (comparison: 991.2 Turbo S 1.50,0 min).

    Car achieved 1.45 g in the Sachskurve.

    Asphalt temp was 12°C, so not ideal for the Trofeo R tires.

    Car received a total of 91 points (same as McLaren 675LT and new Porsche GT2 RS).

    Sport Auto mentioned that the car produces so much downforce (ALA 2.0) that even GT4 and TCR race cars aren't at this level. At the end of the Parabolica, the SVJ had a top speed of 276 kph, which is faster than the fastest DTM race cars on the same part of the track.

    Also, like the Huracan Performante on the Nordschleife, the SVJ was banned from Hockenheim because of the sound level (103 dB). indecision Performante was measured with 126(!) dB as far as I remember.  angry

    Not a fan of Brooks from Drag Times; however, this video demonstrates the violent launches of the SJV as it momentarily lifts its front tires off the ground for several runs.  https://youtu.be/_qnUJLhhkgo

    My Lancia Delta HF Integrale 16V did the same after it was tuned to over 280 hp...until the propeller shaft (drive shaft) bent. Smiley Smiley It went up quite high, a couple of centimeters, quite spectacular.

    It is a shame though to see a SVJ on a drag strip, doesn't make any sense. Same goes to the donuts they performed in that same(?) video. This is a track car, maybe even a road car for having fun but the drag strip? Smiley This is no Hellcat.

    I heard of something about a final edition Aventador with slight bump in power right after the SVJ is sold out, another extreme SVJ? angry

    If it's true, then anyone on the SVJ list will be pissed just like SV owners that put up their cars for sale.

    Of course they have to milk the Aventador, they are going to do the same with the Huracan Evo. Next Huracan generation is due 2023, I assume the Aventador successor will be somewhere in a 2022/2024 time frame as well, so Lamborghini needs to cover a couple of years and special edition and/or limited edition models always do the trick.

    Re: Aventador and SV

    Nice review of the Aventador SVJ vs the 812 Superfast. The comments about grounding out on uneven roads in the Lamborghini chime with the recent Top Gear review of the Aventador S against the Fiesta ST on real world B roads.

    Looks great, will sound wonderful, but will again be limited by its gearbox - 2 out of 3 ain't bad though Smiley.

    That is a pretty good summary from the launch time - even if I do say so myself SmileySmiley. Mine has been here for a while but I have not had a chance to drive it much until today. The key difference versus the SV in real world scenarios  is in handling with the 4 wheel steer making a huge difference. It's still a big lump of a car, but one no longer feels that one is literally dragging the car to one side or the other  - the nose responds with real precision. The gearbox is still unforgivably bad, but the sound of the engine SmileySmileySmiley. I certainly feel  it is more free revving than the Superfast's V12. I went for a "poverty" spec simple white on this one, but will go to town on the Roadster. However, I have experimented with a matt finish with a spray on skin that looks just the same as if it had come painted that way from the factory  - the result has far exceeded expectations, but hard to capture in these iPhone shots. Even the raging bull badge becomes matt which makes for an interesting change....

    S., I have to say your SVJ is a piece of art. I would probably get one for driving and another one for my living room, just to look at it. Smiley My dealer had one on display, I think I spent an hour just looking at the details, the car is so beautiful, only people who own one and get the chance to see all those little details can actually really appreciate this car. The SVJ is pure car porn, not many cars on this planet are similar or even close to it.

    Congratulations again and enjoy it. Smiley Smiley

    Re: Aventador and SV

    Wow, I haven’t paid much attention to the SVJ but what a beautiful car. It’s road presence must be incredible. Everything around it would disappear. That said, the issue with the transmission has existed for sometime. Given the gravitas of this and is cost why can’t VW get this corrected?

    Car needs a completely new tranny (modern DCT system a la Huracan) and this would require a complete overhaul, not worth it. Next generation is just around the corner (well...2020...or so).

    The competition should be thankful: With a modern DCT, the Aventador SVJ would probably be at least 5 seconds faster on the Nordschleife. Smiley

    Nick, you need to see the SVJ live to be able to really appreciate it's presence.

    RC, when can we expect a review of your car? 

    Already working on it but car needs to be broken in up to 2500 km (I already have 2300 km).

    If you have any questions about the car, I can already answer them.

    Otherwise, you need to wait until I finish the break-in period and write up everything. I also need to take some (better) photos and videos, not easy when you work and get home at around 7 pm.
