After being sighted in prototype form previously, Lamborghini has finally confirmed the imminent arrival of the Aventador SVJ with a teaser video. The ‘J’ stands for ‘Jota’, a historic moniker placed on performance-focused variants of previous Lamborghini models like the Miura P400 Jota.

In the short clip titled ‘Aventador SVJ meets the Nürburgring’, we see a wrapped mule attempting to set a new production car lap record that is currently held by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS (six minutes and 47.3 seconds). The fastest bull on the ‘Ring so far is the Huracan Performante with a time of six minutes 52.01 seconds at the Nurburgring.

As you can see, the Aventador SVJ’s bodywork is noticeably different from the standard car, with a lot more emphasis on aerodynamics as suggested by the additional splitters and large rear wing. Based on our spyshots, the rear will see a repositioning of the exhausts to be higher up, along with more prominent diffusers.

Two things that remain unknown (for now) are the car’s engine output and overall weight. The former is said to be close to 800 hp thanks to revisions to the 6.5 litre V12 engine, while the latter should come as a result of lighter materials of removal of certain items.

Given the fact that Lamborghini is teasing the Aventador SVJ on the ‘Ring, it is likely they’ve already set a new record at the track but just what the final time is, we’ll have to wait and see.
