Lamborghini Aventador SVJ leaked… by Lamborghini dealer

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ leaked news

Nürburgring lap record holder is supposed to still be unseen

A Lamborghini dealership in the UK has released a full image of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, or Super Veloce Jota, a car the brand has been trying to keep under literal wraps for some time.

The Nürburgring production car lap record holder  (once it goes into production, anyway) had only been seen in full camouflage or as small close-up images released by Lamborghini, as a way to build excitement for its imminent reveal at the Monterey Car Week, currently taking place in the Californian town.

 

The dealership, H.R. Owen Lamborghini, has a page on its website for the SVJ where it reiterates some of the already-known details about the SVJ, such as the power exceeding that of the Aventador SV’s 559kW (expect 567kW), and weight being lower than 1525kg.

“Lamborghini won’t be releasing full details of the Aventador SVJ until its official launch at the Monterey Car Week in August,” The dealership states.

“But some details are now public following the announcement of the record-breaking Nürburgring lap on July 26th.”

The post made by H.R. Owen Lamborghini on Instagram, which reveals the car in full from the front, is accompanied by a caption which suggests the dealership might have been given permission to post it.

“Not long to go until the official unveiling at Monterey Car Week; here is an exclusive preview of the Aventador SVJ.”

It’s expected the SVJ will be offered in extremely small numbers, given the limited nature of any Lambo wearing the Jota badge.

Stay tuned as MOTOR follows the happenings of the Monterey car week over the coming days.
