Aventador SVJ sets another record: Time For Coffee

Sportauto takes the Jota to Hockenheim, returns with another fastest lap...



It hopefully hasn't escaped your attention by now that the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is a fairly exceptional motor car. Sure, it's Nurburgring lap record has been surpassed, and it's automated manual gearbox isn't brilliant, but it's exactly the kind of wild, intoxicating, visceral V12 flagship we'd want from Lamborghini.

It's also spectacularly fast around a circuit. Despite not being especially light, or with the benefit of hybrid technology, the SVJ has proven itself staggeringly good at quick laps. That continues into this year with this video from sportauto, the Aventador SVJ now the quickest road car ever tested at Hockenheim GP.

It clocked a 1:47.3, putting it ahead of the McLaren 720S by nine tenths, a 911 GT2 RS by 1.8 seconds and a Mercedes AMG GT R by 3.2 seconds - quite some achievement. The SVJ's looks a physical and demanding lap, too, seemingly requiring a fair bit of effort to be kept on the racing line. Or somewhere near it. And, of course, the Aventador sounds sensational as always.

A worthy accompaniment to your morning brew, then, and there's an added sweetener - a Countach 5000S. It doesn't get the hot lap treatment, unsurprisingly enough, but any amount of Countach on video has to be worth a watch, doesn't it?

The 720s which is not a track car with very few aero bits was nearly as fast. With trofeos would have definitely been faster.

Dunno, I really would much rather have the Performante.

Except it won't be trim but part of the timing/camera gear they've strapped into it.

Fantastic vehicle.

yes Exactly... I'm tired of cold clinical precision. Give me a wild 'hang on to your pants' knuckle ride, anytime.

I have to laugh at the mclaren dreamers. The cars look plastic, are unreliable,sound crap and give no driver pleasure. The only thing they have is speed and lap time. But still can’t catch a Lamborghini. God that’s funny. I’ve got an idea, we’ll build an even uglier car than the 720s, name it after the best ever racing driver, charge 2 million quid and let that have a go at the aventador (that was designed 8 years ago). Bless you Lamborghini.
