    Lamborghini Aventador SVJ First Test: Record Setter?

    Things to consider up front about the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce Jota LP770-4, known colloquially as the SVJ: The 6.5-liter V-12 makes 760 naturally aspirated horsepower and 531 lb of torque. This frenzied, astonishingly angry bull has all-wheel drive, all-wheel steering, active aero, active aero vectoring, gooey Pirelli Trofeo R tires, and several square meters […]

    I know I am in the minority but I just don't like the exterior styling of most Lamborghinis. Much respect for the performance though.

    They're going downhill imo. To me the Aventador SV was pretty much perfection. The Huracan and Performante are just boring and the Aventador SVJ is rather ugly the more I've seen it. The Urus is also hideous.

    Honestly though these cars are this level are undoubtedly cooler, just uglier due to aero.

    The price is insane. $610,000 and it's slower than a McLaren 720. They have been stuck in the mid 700 hp levels for a while. For $610K they need to be faster and more powerful. Sure it's stupid faster but 760 hp is no longer outrageous which you expect a Lambo to be.

    I respect them for trying to stick to NA engines but the time has come to give in for turbos or hybrid power.

    760 HP doesn't turn the needle much when you realize you can get a Dodge with the same power AND a.pretty baller house for the same money.

    Don’t think SVJ buyers are cross shopping Hellcats or Demons.

    If I'm not mistaken the SVJ is still the fastest production car on the Nurburgring so it's got that going for it. Straight line speed isn't this things sole purpose. And really the Aventador weighs a fuck ton which has more to do with why it's slower than the 720s in a straight line (and it's ancient transmission too probably).

    If you are shopping a SVJ you already have a pretty baller house and prob a few other toys.

    He owns "the oil can man", a bunch of Burger Fi's in south Fl, and a custom vinal and tint shop. I am also sure more these days.

    That pic is off his IG so I am sure it is all over. He is also the one that builds all the lambo themed MTI's that have even been on CNN shows about over the top wealth so I am sure all his pics are all over.

    I meet him through power boating and going to all the same events and staying at the same hotels and etc.

    Gino is his name.
