Few sports cars conjure up the feeling of total road domination that the Lamborghini does. And for good reason, too. Since the company's official start in 1963, the Lamborghini name has meant speed, quality, and the finest grand touring cars in the world. The 2019 Lamborghini Aventador is no exception. With the power and handling of a racing car, it is the fastest automobile on any road. And, with a nod to its amazing roots, Lamborghini is releasing a special limited edition of an already limited car. The Aventador SJV 63 is a nod to the founding year for the company. And there will only be 63 of these made before production closes.
What does the "SJV' mean?
Literally, super veloce means "super-fast" and Jota is the letter "J" in Spanish. Jota was the name used in 1970 for a one-of-a-kind performance version of the Lamborghini Muira. In other words, the Aventador SJV is designed to perform like a race car you can take out on the highway.
How does the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador supercar perform?
Be sure you are prepared for this much power before you climb in the driver's seat of the Aventador. This production car is now officially the fastest one on the Nurburgring, its howling 12-cylinder engine commanding attention. The 6.5-liter V-12 produces an amazing 770 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. What this means is that you can get race car performance on the open highway. The Aventador only weighs 3,362 pounds, and can easily go from zero to sixty in under three seconds and top out at speeds of 217 miles per hour.
What's new for 2019?
There are interesting changes to the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador, some easier to see than others. Instantly noticeable are changes to the exterior, like the huge rear wing, that increase its aerodynamic nature. Harder to see ae the small vents that control the airflow underneath to help keep the car flat while executing turns. The Aventador also has a fantastic new, SVJ-exclusive exhaust system.
How does the 2019 Aventador handle?
When it comes to driving the newest Lamborghini, prepare to fulfill all of your race car driver fantasies. The incredible track performance of the 2019 Aventador is due in part to its all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering. This turns the rear wheels in the opposite direction of the front in low-speed situations and turns them all the same during faster speeds for added stability. The 7-speed automatic provides quick shifting, even if it is quite outdated. When you need to stop all that speed, the Aventador can go from 62 miles per hour to a complete halt in 98.5 feet with only a slight feeling of the back end taking off on its own.
What does the interior look like?
One look inside the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador and you completely understand the vision of its designers. The interior is styled like the racing superstar it is, with fixed-back racing seats covered in the cozy microfiber, Alcantara. True to its race car image, it has carbon fiber throughout, to help keep its weight down. However, not much attention was paid to the infotainment system. Instead of a much-needed upgrade, the new Aventador sports the same old Audi system. The dashboard, however, has been fully digitized, with high-resolution imaging.
Do I want to know how much gas mileage it gets?
Is anyone out there really buying a Lamborghini based on its gas efficiency? Probably not, but it's noteworthy that the Aventador uses premium gas only and gets an estimated 9 miles per gallon in the city and 15 miles per gallon on the highway.
How much is a 2019 Lamborghini Aventador going to cost?
There is no bargain price for a Lamborghini, and isn't that the point? The 2019 base model starts at $517,770, and almost everyone wants to add optional features when treating themselves to a premium sports car. This price, however, is only $24,000 more than the 2016 SV model, making it a bargain of sorts.
When will the 2019 Lamborghini Aventador be available?
The company has stated that the first customers will get theirs at the beginning of 2019. They are only making 900 of these, so if you're serious, you'd better in line.
