Porsche 911 GT2 RS Nurburgring record is at risk of being crushed by Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

Late last year, on September 20, Porsche took the 911 GT2 RS to the Nurburgring in attempt to take down the lap record for the fastest production car around the ‘Ring, finishing in 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds. Now, it looks like its record could be broken again soon, this time by Lamborghini’s up and coming Aventador Superveloce Jota (SVJ). So does it have the goods to surpass the already impressive record?

We have been seeing a lot of spy shots of the said model as it is being tested in Sant’Agata Bolognese at the Green Hell but it looks like Lamborghini was there for another reason. According to those who witnessed it, the naturally aspirated V12 supercar managed to lap the ‘Ring in 6 minutes and 54 seconds or 6.7 seconds slower than the Porsche. However, they made it clear that the track conditions were less ideal then.

When the new Lamborghini attempted its run on the Green Hell, a number of other automakers were out on the track, so traffic was indeed a factor that affected its results. Aside from that, there was a section of the circuit that had a few cones, and this also took their toll on the SVJ’s lap time. But even with all the obstacles and the imperfect conditions, it was still able to finish in 6:54, which is a striking result. This probably means that in ideal conditions, the hardcore Aventador will drop below the 6:50 mark. Therefore, there’s a good chance for it to beat the Porsche 911 GT2 RS’s record.

Lamborghini Aventador will never have an RWD setup

The Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 has been out in the market for about 2 years now, with the last number in the model’s name indicating that the vehicle has a two wheel drive layout, which was implemented in the new Audi R8 V10 RWS. If you are a fan of RWDs and are expecting to see a larger Aventador with that setup, you will be disappointed as the automaker has no plans of developing an RWD version.

During the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Australia’s Drive magazine interviewed R&D boss of Lamborghini, Maurizio Reggiani. Here, he revealed that the Aventador will remain to be the company’s flagship model and is going to keep its all wheel drive system. You may be wondering why that has been decided. Well, it is because sending as much power from the V12 to the rear axle will allegedly make the vehicle difficult to manage once it hits a certain speed. To be safe, the automaker decided not to let this happen as they will be liable for it.

Furthermore, they assured that the decision was not only made due to safety reasons, but also because the Lamborghini Aventador is meant to keep its all-four wheel configuration. Without this AWD layout, the supercar’s traction control system would be so invasive, says Reggiani.

V12-powered Lamborghini Aventador SVJ could deliver more than 800 PS of max output

A new version of the Lamborghini Aventador is definitely on the way; it is just that the supercar maker has yet to announce its official name. There have been reports saying that this would be a Performante, an SE, a GT, a JOTA or an SV, although nothing is sure yet. Nonetheless, the newest Aventador is a true performer, with a potential power output of more than 800 PS.

While Lamborghini has yet to officially announce the true moniker of its new Aventador creation, it seems like a leak has occurred. Weeks ago, an Instagram user shared a leaked image of the instrument display showing the name of the new Lamborghini supercar – the Aventador SVJ. The letters SV has been known to stand for Super Veloce, which are the Italian words for “super fast.” Quite a number of Raging Bull models have already received this designation.

The letter J, meanwhile, was first used by adopted by the factory’s test driver Bob Wallace, whose drove a special version of the Lamborghini Miura that bears the J mark. In fact, Lamborghini actually managed to convert some Miura SV models to SV/J specification. The Aventador J – unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show -- was the last Lamborghini model to use the letter as a suffix.

Future editions of Lamborghini Aventador will keep naturally aspirated V12 but expect surprises

Day after day, we hear something new about the Lamborghini Aventador. The Italian supercar manufacturer has built a total of 7,000 examples of the said model in the six years that it has been in the market. Aside from being one of the most expensive supercars one can buy today, it definitely is one of the best too, and the company promises to make it even better as technology improves. Lamborghini’s chief commercial officer, Federico Foschini recently confirmed that new and even more special versions of the Aventador will come to the market in the next couple of years.

In an interview with CarAdvice, Foschini said that he loves the Aventador so much that he does not want the nameplate to die. He then said that “the time will have to come”, but he does not specify whether this will be sooner or later. Furthermore, he said something that got a lot of people even more excited. He said that the Aventador will have more surprises for us. Again, he does not specify what these will be. He did joke however that he will be murdered if he leaks the information he has.

Today, the most powerful Lamborghini Aventador that we know of is the Superveloce, and it had already been sold out. Under its hood is a naturally aspired 750 horsepower (552 kilowatts) V12 engine with as much as 508 pound-feet (690 Newton-metres) of torque. This engine works with a seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) transmission distributing power to the wheels. As for the performance, it can quickly do the 60 mile per hour sprint (96 kilometers per hour) in only 2.9 seconds.

Lamborghini recently introduced the Aventador S Roadster just over a month ago at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. And already, the V12 powered convertible is going to receive a special edition treatment. The 400 GT model was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the raging bulls, and it will only be limited to five cars. Each one of the Japan edition models will be one-offs since the Ad Personam department and the Cento Stile both gave them unique looks that take inspiration from the five natural elements of Japanese culture: earth, wind, fire, water and sky.

The one you can see in the photos, from its official unveiling in Japan, is the “water” edition. On the same day, the Italian marque also came up with the second edition of the Lamborghini Day Concours d’Elegance Tokyo. In this event, Lamborghini displayed a total of 50 cars. A few of the notable models included here are the gorgeous Miura, the Diablo and Countach. Alongside these were vehicles like the restored Miura SV and a 1976 Countach LP. And guess who won the “Best of Show” award? Well, it was the Countach LP. During the event, the automaker also presented scale models of the other four cars based on the remaining elements that will soon be produced.

Let us not veer away from talking about the gorgeous Aventador S Roadster. The exterior livery was finished by a team of ten specialists by around 170 hours. The paint turns out with a nice finish that contrasts with the exposed carbon fiber that is used for the hardtop and the windscreen frame. There is also a ‘50 Japan’ badge near the vehicle’s rear fender.

This is a dream come true for those who were wishing that Automobili Lamborghini would create a roadster version of its Aventador S. Just weeks after Lamborghini introduced the Aventador S Coupe, quite a number of renderings of a possible roadster version surfaced. Back then, an Aventador S roadster was just a dream. But now, Italian carmaker is finally introducing the new 2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster.

Even at a glance, the new Lamborghini roadster is easily recognizable as the open-top version of the Aventador S coupe. After all, the roadster has taken up the unmistakable design of the coupe as influenced by the distinctive Lamborghini design DNA and extensive aerodynamic testing.

From the exterior design – especially the front end and to some extent, the rear end – to the mechanicals, the Aventador S Roadster is a reflection of the Aventador S Coupe, but lacking the fixed roof and with the addition of some hardware to ensure that its occupants could be protected from the weather if needed.

It is not like the Lamborghini Aventador does not perform well when we’re comparing performance. But some tuners just like to fiddle with car parts, which is the main reason why they exist. This is where Novitec Torado comes in. More than a year ago, Novitec actually put its sights on the Lamborghini Aventador SV Coupe.

First of all, Novitec put the coupe into a carbon fiber diet, by replacing some of its parts to make it extra lightweight. Other than that, they also changed the engine into a 6.5 liter V12 for an extra push. So what happens when you combine a stronger engine and a lightweight car? You all know the answer.

But let us get into more detail first. The new engine has now been supercharged, as Novitec got rid of the naturally aspirated one, letting the car generate a total of 970 horsepower, from the standard’s 750 horsepower. That’s a whopping 220 horsepower increase from the original model, which is pretty insane.

Last month, we heard about the Lamborghini Aventador SV that was listed on eBay. You’re right, the one-off vehicle finished in a Verde Singh paint, that was being sold along with the matching speed boat.

A few days ago, an Aventador S came out at the Goodwood Festival of Speed with a beautifully painted matte-finish Grigio Acheso with orange accent, combined with an interior that matches the exterior design, by Ad Personam.

Now, photos of the last ever Lamborghini Aventador SV have been circulating online, as Lamborghini Edinburgh delivers the specific model to its designated buyer. This is the last Aventador SV to ever roll off the assembly line at Sant’Agata Bolognese, making it extra special.

Lamborghini decided to reveal a one-off Aventador S, built by their Ad Personam division, at the recent 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The car’s exterior has a beautiful bluish-grey matte finish they call Grigio Acheso, combined with matte orange lines all over the body. The roof is made with glossy carbon, paired with a matte black exhaust system, and black multi-spoke wheels with bright orange brake calipers.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find a two-tone cabin in black Alcantara with orange accents, to match the exterior design. The colours extend from steering wheel, all the way to the seats. There are contrast stitching, orange trim, and an Opera Unica plate that indicates the car’s unique specification.

The Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster may be the fastest car out there, capable of reaching 60 miles from standstill in just 2.8 seconds, plus having a top speed of 217 miles per hour. But where will the Aventador end up if it runs out of road to drive on? We all know that the planet is made up of 70 percent water.

Well, that doesn't seem to be a problem. If you have the money to get yourself that roadster, you sure can afford a speedboat to pair with it. There is a listing on JamesEdition in Fort Lauderdale of a Lambo Aventador SV Roadster with a matching catamaran. And yes, they really do have matching colours.

Just like the roadster, the catamaran was customized to look like it is the supercar's big brother. The 52-foot MTI G6 has been finished with a Verde Singh shade paired with Alcantara upholstery, and of course the carbon fiber trim. And that's not all, as the speedboat comes with a steering wheel, marinized switchgear, door panels, and lighting from the Aventador - literally the works.

TV personality Kylie Jenner was seen stepping out with her orange Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster in Los Angeles on Saturday. Being one of the world’s greatest influencers on social media, Jenner took the time to show off her exquisite taste in Italian supercars by posing and posting selfies with her “latest squeeze”.

Her chosen one of course is the naturally aspirated V12 Aventador LP750-40 SV that costs over half a million USD. The flashy orange finish is just the icing on the cake as the monster can juice out a powerful 740hp (750PS) and 509lb-ft (690Nm) of torque.

The reality star has been glued to her cellphone from morning until night that same weekend. Sitting on the driver’s seat with the front door open high into the air, Jenner poses showing off her legs while stepping out of the roadster. That was only during the day. Different snaps of the 19-year old teen star were shared on her social media later that evening.

Come on baby, light my fire… Suddenly, a recall becomes a sensational news for more than 12 minutes and 33 seconds. Lamborghini earlier this week announced it is issuing a recall on the Aventador model range. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall includes the Super Veloce, the Pirelli Edition, the Miura Homage and the Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario.

The notice said there are issues concerning the vehicle’s Evaporative Emission Control System, which had to do with some faulty purge valves and defective ROV (roll over valve) along its fuel tank.

The ROV basically seals off the valve opening in order to prevent fuel leaks under unfortunate circumstances. The purge valve meanwhile controls how much fuel vapor is purged from the carbon canister.

It was just last week that Lamborghini gave everyone their first glimpse of the new Aventador S. Not surprisingly, a number of artists immediately went to work and revealed their own renditions.

One of this is X-Tomi which revealed a Roadster version. The open top version of this model is likely to experience the same changes on the bodywork done for the coupe. This not only gives it a form that is efficient on an aerodynamic level but one that displays aggressiveness as well. The final product will probably have the same appearance and the different changes incorporated to the design combined with the new exhaust system and modified suspension.

It will even have the four-wheel steering first seen on the S. Powering this variant will be the naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine which brings with it an extra output of 39 hp (40 PS) totaling 730 hp (740 PS). This power could reduce the already incredible acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) of 3.0 seconds.

The Lamborghini Aventador supercar remains as strong and as appealing as when it was introduced in 2011. Already nearing six years old, the V12-powered Lamborghini Aventador managed to remain fresh, especially when the super sports car maker just recently revealed the Lamborghini Aventador S. In fact, the replacement model for the Aventador is not bound to appear in the next five to six years.

One of the central pieces of the Lamborghini Aventador has been its naturally aspirated V12 engine. Known for monstrous power outputs and torques, V12 engines have been the powerplants of choice for Lamborghini’s flagships. And when Lamborghini finally replaces the Aventador, the new super sports car will still be powered by a V12 engine, chief executive Stefano Domenicali was quoted by Car Advice as saying.

In a regular Aventador (Aventador LP 700–4), this 235-kg 6.5-liter 60-degree V12 engine delivers 700 PS (510 kW or 690 bhp) of max output and 508 lb.-ft. (689 Nm) of peak torque. In the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce (SV) unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine was seen to develop 750 hp (552 kW) at 8,400 rpm and 690 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. The V12 engine in the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage, meanwhile, generates 700 hp (515 kW) of max output and 507 lb.-ft. (690 Nm). The latest version of the super sports car, the Lamborghini Aventador, features a V12 engine that provides 740 hp of max output and 690 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm.

Make way for the latest Lamborghini, and it is more powerful and looks even more aggressive. Meet the new 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S – the latest version of the carmaker’s flagship model. As we could expect, the suffix “S” means more than just being a distinguishing moniker.

After all, this is the first time that this suffix was added to a model, and when used, it denotes a new benchmark in terms of aerodynamics, power and driving dynamics.

Lamborghini is selling the new Aventador S at suggested retail prices of EUR281,555 (taxes excluded) in Europe; GBP225,955 (taxes excluded) in the United Kingdom; and $421,350 (GGT included) in the United States. Initial deliveries will commence in Spring 2017.

If you own a Lamborghini Aventador SV (Super Veloce) Roadster, you wouldn’t want to crash it. However, things do happen and if one is unlucky (more likely not careful) enough, he or she could send his or her Aventador SV Roadster crashing.

A driver – reportedly a young man in his early 20s – was recently able to damage his Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster in Park Lane, London after engaging in a street race against another car, which could be a Bentley Continental GT V8 judging from the appearance of its interior. The Aventador SV Roadster in topic is finished in matte black, making it looked like Batman’s heroic ride, the Batmobile. Interestingly, this Aventador SV Roadster is fitted with a personalized number plate “The 84T” (The Bat).

As for the race and the accident, these were recorded by the occupants of the Continental GT V8. Initially, the Continental GT V8 was just lazily cruising through central London until it came to a halt before a traffic light, where the Aventador SV Roadster was already stopped. It took no words between the drivers of the two sporty cars to start a street race as soon as the traffic light shifted from red to green – after all, both were driving extraordinary cars with terrific powers. The next thing that happened was like a scene from The Fast and the Furious film franchise (Fast & Furious 6 in particular). If we could remember, there was also a thrilling chase scene in London.

Now that Lamborghini is set to bring a “more aggressive” Aventador, it only makes sense that it will be given a name. Seeing how it goes, perhaps we won’t be expecting an “LP740-4” for its label. Remember when the new Huracan Spyder was launched last month? Instead of naming it LP580-2, Automobili Lamborghini simply came up with “RWD Spyder”. Now, according to the grapevine, the Italian car manufacturer has already applied a trademark for an “Aventador S”. Let’s wait and see what happens after that.

For several years, Lamborghini has sustained the production for its well-known supercars. By coming up with an updated design, we can only expect the 2011 Aventador to have the same staying power just like its Countach, Diablo and Murcielago counterparts.

Spy photos reveal too little while speculations become more intense. Since it’s hard to get a clear picture of the final outcome, LamboCARS.com (a Lamborghini enthusiast website) came up with its own take on the new model.

What is it with China and supercar crashes? This year, we’ve had more than the usual share of reports about vehicular accidents in China involving high-end cars. Just recently, a McLaren 570S ended in a one-way trip to the local scrapyard after what seems to be another over-speeding incident. And before the year ends, another vehicular accident took place in the city of Kunming in Yunnan Province.

Apparently, a lightly modded Lamborghini Aventador and a bus got tangled up in a road accident. From what has been reported, the Italian supercar was in the process of hurriedly trying to change direction when it hits the side of the bus.

The Lambo came from the other side of the road when the driver made a rather rash decision to make a tight turn somehow ending up hitting the bus. Luckily, it looks like the Italian supercar received only minor damages and none of the passengers (on both vehicles) seemed to be injured.

As announced, 2016 marks the 50th year since Lamborghini launched the first Lamborghini Miura. As part of this 50th anniversary celebration, Lamborghini conducted special displays, rallies, and a number of events, as well as by offering a special edition of its successor – the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage. Only 50 examples – corresponding to Miura’s age – of the special Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage would be made available to customers in selected markets.

Hong Kong has been chosen as one of the markets in which the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage is offered. This is not surprising as the former British colony is among the top financial centers in the world, ranking along London, New York City, Singapore and Tokyo. But here is the catch: only one example of the Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage is allocated to this market – a unit wrapped in Verde Scandal (solid green) color with matte silver accents.

As for how much that lucky buyer would have to shell out just to acquire this Lamborghini Aventador Miura Homage – which has been homologated according to Hong Kong specification -- around HK$8,000,000 ($1.03M) would be needed. The amount already includes tax.
