What We Know About the 2020 Lamborghini Aventador

Spy shots and videos do more than get car and brand enthusiasts excited. They may not reveal much as far as strategic improvements are involved, but they do show traces of variations from previous models that give anyone who examines hard enough ideas on the possibilities. Lamborghini has been testing one of its cars recently, and it’s probably safe to say that diehard fans are probably screaming in delight at the prospect. The car is the Aventador, and the makings will eventually become the Aventador SVJ, with the SVJ standing for Super Veloce Jota. That name is derivative from the Miura SVJ, a 1970s limited classic that is the hardcore version of Bob Wallace’s Miura Jota. The Jota—being the Spanish pronunciation for the letter J—is a simple nod to the FIA’s Appendix J racing regulations.

From what it looks like on the spy shots, the Aventador SVJ will have at least one striking feature that is obviously different from what the Aventador’s bestseller today, the Aventador S, has on its rear. The car on the test track has an aggressive aero enhancement in the form of a rear wing. This rear wing closely resembles the one on the Lamborghini Huracán Performante, which probably just means that the Aventador SVJ will have some of the aerodynamic elements of the previously mentioned car. The ALA, or Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva, is the company’s active aerodynamics system. It works much like any aerodynamic system does—to minimize drag and downforce levels by maximizing airflow and current through and around the vehicle. The Aventador SVJ will have some version of the ALA.

There are a couple other exterior changes visible from the test track. Apart from the rear wing, it seems that the plumbing has changed as well. The exhaust has received a significant change on the Aventador SVJ, with a pair of exhaust outlets installed close to the taillights. The larger plumbing is probably indicative of what improvements we’ll find under the hood, but we’ll get there soon enough. Just to add on, the side skirts on the Aventador SVJ has also gotten an upgrade as well as the spoilers in the front fascia. Although we won’t have the official measurements for at least another year, we can already tell that the tracks on the Aventador SVJ are also slightly wider.

While we can’t tell you much about the interior, we do have some expectations. Having had similarities to the Jota on the outside, we’re looking for the same details on the Aventador SVJ. We don’t expect to wait too long to get more spy photos that will reveal more on the interior logistics, but for now, we can talk about the power of the car.

With larger side intakers compared to other Aventador cars, we’re expecting to be wowed by the SVJ’s output. With a 6.5-liter engine, we have no doubts this car will push 770 HP on an average day. It won’t surprise us if Lamborghini is gearing up for 800 HP. The engine cover does have more vents than usual. The latest American muscle cars are overpowering Lamborghini’s current V12, at least per current stats, so we’re positive that the Aventador SVJ is coming out to set the bar high yet again.

We first saw the Aventador in the 2011 Geneva Auto Show. Now just 7 years later, it looks like we’ll be witnessing the end of the model, with the 2020 Aventador SVJ probably being its last variation. We expect Lamborghini to provide us after with a successor, a prototype that has some sort of electric assistance. Many makes have already taken that road and are zooming through past possibilities that many never thought could be possible before. That being said, there’s a lot of weight on the shoulders of the Aventador SVJ to at least give us all a last bang and wow before it quietly finds its way into car collections everywhere. We’re probably looking at a 2019 release for this car, and as you can expect, pricing at the moment is completely up in the air. It wouldn’t even make sense to look at Aventador comps; the SVJ will be a class on its own.
