Novitec Takes Lamborghini Aventador S To The Next Level


If you can't wait for the hardcore Aventador SVJ, Novitec has an enticing alternative for you.

The 740-horsepower Aventador S is currently Lamborghini’s flagship supercar, but an even more hardcore version, rumored to be called the SVJ, is on its way. We were hoping to see it break cover at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, but it didn’t show up, sadly. If you can’t wait for the Aventador SVJ, renowned Lamborghini tuner Novitec has an enticing alternative option for you. The tuner’s latest package modifies the range-topping Italian supercar to make it lighter and even more powerful without resorting to forced induction.

Exterior changes are minimal to preserve the Aventador’s striking design, including a new set of forged wheels manufactured by Vossen that measure 20 inches at the front and 21 inches for the rear axle. Elsewhere, new carbon fiber components, which were optimized in a wind tunnel to increase the car’s aerodynamic efficiency, give the supercar a racier look. Suspension has also been lowered by 1.2 inches. Other noticeable exterior changes include new rocker panels, the carbon mirror covers and the new side air intakes at the rear side windows, which optimize airflow air to the engine.

To extract more power from the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter engine, Novitec has fitted a new exhaust system made from stainless steel or Inconel, a lightweight material used in F1. Novitec’s upgraded Aventador S produces 763 horsepower and 540 lb-ft, so that’s a 23 hp increase over the standard car. The Inconel exhaust system also reduces the weight by 46 pounds. That may not sound significant, but the power increase and weight reduction has enabled the modified Aventador S to sprint to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, which is a tenth of a second quicker. Top speed is still 217 mph. No prices have been announced, but existing Aventador S owners should be able to afford Novitec's tuning package.
