When Lamborghini launched the Aventador SVJ or SuperVeloce Jota on Pebble Beach almost two years ago, it was slated to be the ultimate version of the supercar’s nameplate, hovering over the Aventador LP 750-4 SuperVeloce .
The SVJ carried the most powerful V12 engine from the Italian brand, but it was not until the Bull brand announced the Lamborghini SCV12 which now carries the most powerful 12-cylinder engine from Sant’Agata Bolognese.
However, the question at the time was how the SVJ was different from the normal SV in terms of performance.
We have never seen the Aventador SVJ and SV compete in a race, so 888MFThe new video should show us how these two cars compare – at least in a drag race. But before we watch the video at the top, let’s compare some essential facts in between.
The reworked 6.5-liter V12 L539 engine in the Aventador SVJ produces slightly more power at 759 horsepower (566 kilowatts) and 531 pound-feet (720 Newton meters) of torque, but the merits of the car lie not only in its power. The SVJ has additional aerodynamic bits that work perfectly well on the track without adding too much weight to 1,770 kilograms (3,902 pounds).
Most importantly, the SVJ includes the second generation of Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) or the brand’s active aerodynamic system.
In contrast, the Aventador SV’s V12 is 740 hp (552 kW) – not too far from the SVJ. The curb weight is also the same, the former being one kilogram lighter.
With these figures presented, taking into account the aerodynamic advantage of the SVJ and other factors that affect the results of the straight line race, who do you think won this raging bull match? Watch the video above to find out.
