2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ video review: 759bhp V12 hypercar driven
Track-ready, most extreme Aventador yet gets pushed to it limits on a newly resurfaced Estoril circuit
With a 217mph-plus top speed, a 0-62mph time of 2.8 seconds and a Nürburgring lap record to its name, the Aventador SVJ is unquestionably fast.
In fact, it’s comfortably the fastest Lamborghini on sale today, with 759bhp from a naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine helping it outpace even the limited-run Centenario.
Those are hugely impressive numbers, but it’s the active aerodynamics and four-wheel steering that make it more agile than a V12-powered super-sports car has any right to be, and what makes it purpose-built for smashing lap times – as Matt Prior discovered on a recently-resurfaced Estoril circuit in Portugal.
