After several months of teasing, Lamborghini has finally unveiled the all-new Aventador SVJ supercar. And boy, did Lamborghini pull through.

The Aventador SVJ is a buffed-up version of the Aventador with its sharp intakes and large spoiler. You’ll also find a smattering of visual enhancements over the Aventador S. Majority of the more crucial refinements are under the hood, though. That includes an improved downforce compared to the Aventador SV, with a 40% gain on both axles as well as an improved drag coefficient.

The vehicle boasts a new bumper, integrated side fins, and new air intakes. These minor change-ups help minimize drag and improve overall cooling. Other enhancements include a new front splitter and a tri-dimensional air outlet on the hood. The design of the underbody has also received an upgrade, with vortex generators working with front diffusers and a new extreme-design diffuser on the rear bumper.

Lamborghini also incorporated a new wing made of carbon fiber as well as a new air foil and side winglets, helping reduce turbulence while giving high downforce simultaneously. The new rear engine bonnet is also one of the highlights, now made from carbon fiber and can be removed thanks to the quick-release clips.

Powering the car is a 6.5-litre V12 petrol engine that produces 770 horsepower and 720Nm of torque. The vehicle can sprint from 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds and from 0-124mph in 8.6 seconds. Its top speed is set at 217mph.

In developing this vehicle, Lamborghini said it wanted to create a “demanding driver’s perfect car.” It will make its debut at the Salon Privé car show, which takes place at the Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1.
