The camouflage is gradually coming off the most powerful Aventador ever made.
In just a few weeks, Lamborghini will lift the wraps off the much-anticipated Aventador SVJ at Pebble Beach. In the meantime, the teaser campaign is gathering pace as Lamborghini has released the first official image of the hardcore supercar in production form without any camouflage previewing the car's extreme aerodynamics.
We get a peek at the hood, which features two prominent air vents forming part of the Aventador SVJ's Active Aerodynamics technology surrounded by sharp design lines. Clearly, this is going to be a very aggressive-looking supercar that will give the Aventador a proper send-off.
The image also shows the Aventador SVJ will be available in a striking bright green paint finish that could be the car's launch color. We also can't help but be intrigued by the image's accompanying caption, as Lamborghini promises the Aventador SVJ "will blow your mind." That's a bold claim, but perhaps not unfounded considering the Aventador SVJ has already been crowned the new king of the Nurburgring after beating Porsche's lap record set by the GT2 RS.
While we'll have to wait until the official reveal to see what the Aventador SVJ looks like, we already know most of the car's technical specifications. Like with all Aventadors, the SVJ will be powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter engine tuned to deliver 760 hp at 8,500 rpm and 531 lb-ft from 6,750 rpm, which is an extra 20 horsepower and 22 pound-feet of torque than the SV. In other words, it will be the most powerful Aventador ever made.
Thanks to Lamborghini's Active Aerodynamics system, which keeps the nose as well as the tail planted, it also produces 40 percent more downforce than the regular SuperVeloce without increasing drag. Now that the camouflage has dropped, we could see the Aventador SVJ break cover online very soon before its public debut at Pebble Beach, which kicks off August 18.
