The hardcore Lamborghini Aventador Super Veloce Jota has been officially confirmed in a new video, it could pack almost 800bhp
Lamborghini is applying the finishing touches to the most extreme version of its flagship supercar, the Aventador SVJ, or Super Veloce Jota. Following on from the spy shots we scooped earier this year, the track focused machine has now been shown attacking the Nurburgring Nordschliefe in a teaser video, reinforcing rumours that Lamborghini has the ‘Ring production car lap record in its sights.
The Aventador SVJ will receive a complete aerodynamic overhaul with the simple aim of improving ultimate performance. It’s clear to see the deeper front wing, wider side skirts and the motorsport-style single centre nuts on the wheels on the SVJ model.

At the rear there’s another huge wing and the same kind of high-mounted exhaust we saw on the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, while a brief shot of the instrument cluster in the video shows a 9,000rpm red line.
The Aventador’s gaping air intakes look to have been increased in size on the Super Veloce Jota version to feed more air to the 6.5-litre V12 engine and the engineers are also likely to have been set to work on that V12 unit. Power is expected to jump from the current Aventador SV’s 730bhp output to around 800bhp at the 9,000rpm maximum, while chassis and suspension tweaks should help the SVJ contain the extra power and set a blistering lap time on the Nordschliefe.
The letter J in the SVJ name stands for Jota and has previously been reserved for Lamborghini’s most aggressive and exclusive vehicles. Only two models have previously worn the badge, the Miura and Diablo, but now the Aventador is about to join that elite group.
