LAMBORGHINI SVJ EUROPEAN DEBUT AT SALON PRIVÉ
LAMBORGHINI SVJ EUROPEAN DEBUT
AT SALON PRIVÉ
Lamborghini SVJ will make its European debut at Salon Privé
Following its worldwide premiere on the 23 August at ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering” in the USA, the Lamborghini SVJ will make its European debut at Salon Privé, which takes place at Blenheim Palace from Thursday 30 August to Saturday 1 September. A private customer event will be followed by a media presentation on the first day of the event before the car is shown to the public.
With 770 hp and 720 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm, the Aventador SVJ is the most powerful, naturally-aspirated series production V12 that Lamborghini has ever produced: SV standing for ‘Super Veloce’ meaning superfast, and the ‘Jota’ suffice referencing the car’s potency on both track and road. A dry weight of just 1,525 kg and a weight-to-power ratio of 1.98 kg/hp translates to sensational performance figures: 0-100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 8.6 seconds with a top speed of more than 350 km/h. Having already proven itself by taking the production car lap record at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, the philosophy behind the SVJ is to create a ‘demanding driver’s perfect car’. Featuring Lamborghini’s patented active aerodynamics system and aero vectoring, both systems have been enhanced for the SVJ, along with a redesign of the chassis, enhanced powertrain, re-engineered chassis, improved stiffness, enhanced rear-wheel steering, increased stiffness and significantly improved downforce.
“We are truly delighted to host the European debut of the new SVJ,” commented Salon Privé Founding Directors Andrew and David Bagley. “It is an honour for us to be involved in the debut of such an important ground-breaking car and we know visitors to Salon Privé will appreciate the opportunity to see this new Lamborghini just as it has been unveiled.”
