The reveal process of the Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce Jota has begun, with the brand's first preview of the car showing bonnet vents flanking the Lamborghini badge.
No details accompany the image, but recently revealed onboard video footage showed the SVJ becoming the fastest production car ever to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit.
The successful record attempt, set by Lamborghini factory driver Marco Mapelli, shows the upcoming SVJ completing the lap in a time of 6min 44:97sec - making the range-topping Lambo 2.27sec faster around the fearsome track than Porsche’s 690bhp 911 GT2 RS. It’s also just under 15sec faster than the Aventador SV.
A report leaked ahead of official confirmation of the lap time claimed the SVJ produces 759bhp from its 6.5-litre V12 - 69bhp more than the GT2 RS and 20bhp more than the current Lamborghini flagship, the Aventador SV.
The Italian supercar maker will officially reveal the Aventador SVJ at the Monterey Car Week next month, with an ever-increasing number of teaser videos being posted online. Previous videos have boasted about the car having “the best aerodynamic efficiency” and claims of class-leading power-to-weight ratios have also been made.
