A track-focused version of the Aventador, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is a true marvel of modern engineering & design, whilst this particular one features the gorgeous Blu Cepheus exterior finish, paired with a set of custom-made HRE Vintage 527 FMR two-piece forged wheels, giving this supercar an ’80s look & vibe
You might say that Lamborghini is milking the Aventador for all its worth. After all, the V12-powered hypercar was revealed on 28 February 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show, five months after its initial unveiling in Sant’Agata Bolognese. If you don’t have your calculator nearby, that’s almost 12 years since its launch, a very long time for any car, let alone a cutting-edge hypercar like the Aventador.
Even though its replacement is in the works, the Aventador is still going strong. And why wouldn’t it? The Aventador is still one of the best-looking and performing hypercars out there, bringing a sick level of performance both on and off the track. In turn, giving it a few slight visual touches and a performance increase is all that it needed, and that’s precisely what the Italian car maker did back in 2018 when it released yet another iteration of the Aventador.
Dubbed the Aventador SVJ (Super Veloce Jota), this Lamborghini was revealed at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, giving the world a more track-focused Aventador. In a nutshell, the vehicle is a track-focused iteration of the Aventador S and a clear improvement over the Aventador SV. It is powered by the same 6.5 liter V12 engine used in the rest of the Aventador model range, delivering 770 PS (566 kW; 759 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 720 N⋅m (531 lb-ft) of torque at 6,750 rpm. The weight-saving measures such as the extensive use of carbon fiber, and titanium in the exhaust system have brought the weight down to 1,525 kg (3,362 lb), giving the car a power-to-weight ratio of 0.5 hp/kg. The Aventador SVJ can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 8.6 seconds and can attain a top speed of over 352 km/h (219 mph).
To make matters interesting, before the production vehicle was released to the customers, a camouflaged prototype of the variant of the Aventador SVJ ran the Nürburgring Nordschleife in July 2018, setting a new production car lap record. It beat the previous record-holder, a Porsche 911 GT2 RS with Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel, setting a lap time of 6:44.97 utilizing Pirelli Pzero Trofeo R tires available with the car as an option. Truly a remarkable feat for a rather heavy hypercar, even with all the weight savings and high-tech materials used.
Adding a perfect dose of the aftermarket industry for this Blu Cepheus Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
Sure, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is a great car in its stock form. And yes, nothing should be added to it as the Italian engineers made it perfect from the start. However, for some owners, adding a personal touch trumps anything that purists might say, and that’s what we love about our industry. For this gorgeous Blu Cepheus Lamborghini Aventador SVJ (one of our favorite Lambo finishes), the owner went in a direction we’re sure most will love.
The addition of HRE Vintage 527 FMR wheels makes a perfect touch on this hypercar, giving it a rather impressive look. The design of these wheels follows the same design philosophy of the most exotic sports and race cars of the 1970s and ‘80s, which came with the most gorgeous and identifiable wheels of the day. The HRE Vintage Series is meant to evoke the finest designs of that era and offer styles fitting for sports cars, exotic GTs and performance sedans.
For the Aventador SVJ, the best fitment is the 20×9.5 in the front and 21×12.5 in the rear, giving the hypercar a welcome visual upgrade, but also, keeping up with the performance and platform requirements at the same time. For these HRE Vintage 527 FMR wheels, the customer went with a Satin Charcoal and Polished Clear finish for the wheel centers and lips, respectively. In turn, it’s a great-looking finish combo, giving the SVJ a damn fine wheel setup upgrade.
