2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63
If the Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce Jota (SVJ) isn’t rare enough for you, you’ll be happy to know that a 63-unit Aventador SVJ 63 Special Edition is also available from Lamborghini. The rarer Aventador SVJ 63 carries that name as a nod to 1963, the year patriarch Ferruccio Lamborghini founded the company. Lamborghini has yet to release the price for the Aventador SVJ 63, but expect it to be heavier on the pockets compared to the $517,770 price tag of the “standard” Aventador SVJ.
2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the most powerful and aggressive version of the company’s flagship supercar. The car that bears the iconic Jota suffix, which was first used on the Miura, made its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as the fastest production car on the Nurburgring as of 2018.
The first Lambo to carry a "Jota" badge since the Diablo, the Aventador SVJ is essentially a beefed-up version of the SV. But it’s not just faster and more powerful, it’s also more aerodynamic, as it benefits from the Aerodynamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system. First introduced on the Huracan Performante, ALA is a range of active aerodynamic features that turn the already potent supercar into a road-legal race car. Alongside the SVJ, Lambo launched a limited-edition SJV 63 model that pays homage to the company’s founding year of 1963.

Lamborghini is Giving Us 770 Reasons To Love The Aventador SVJ
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ finally showed its face at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, and as expected, it’s packing a walloping 770 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. The more potent version of the Aventador SV is now the most potent V-12-powered Lamborghini in history, a distinction it earned over the 740-horsepower Aventador SV. The Aventador SVJ is also poised to become a rare unicorn with Lamborghini only building 900 units.
Lamborghini launched the SuperVeloce specification all the way back in the 1960s, first appearing on the Miura, the nameplate that basically introduced the world to the mid-engine supercar. Dropped when the Miura was discontinued, the SV name returned nearly 30 years later when Lambo showcased the 1995-1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV at the 1995 Geneva Motor Show. Since then, every range-topping Lambo has gotten an SV version. There was a Murcielago SV, and the Aventador SuperVeloce was presented at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
But while the SV badge has graced four different supercars as of 2015, not all of then have been offered as roadsters. The Miura was built as a coupe only (except for a one-off roadster), while the only drop-top version of the Diablo was based on the less powerful VT. The Murcielago was the first SV to lose its roof, which makes the Aventador only the second drop-top Lambo to carry the high-performance badge.
The car just broke cover at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, which means it’s time to have a closer look at the most powerful Lamborghini ever to benefit from infinite headroom.

Lamborghini doesn’t build any cars that are boring, but when it comes to limited-production models, the raging bull turns out some seriously wild stuff. The latest rumors say that another one is on the way, and that it will be called the HyperVeloce. It’s not a very creative name, but like the Reventon or Veneno, it will be a bold restyling for an existing Lambo model. In this case, Lambo will take the 2015 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce, bump the power up to 800 horsepower and give it some kind of a new body. It will reportedly be unveiled at Pebble Beach in just a couple of weeks, but this will be an invite-only affair, and us lowly members of the public probably won’t see it until Frankfurt next month.
Nothing is known about the price, and previous limited-production models have varied quite a bit. The 2008 Lamborghini Reventon went for $1.5 million, while the 2013 Lamborghini Veneno went for $4.5 million. But this is probably related to the fact that Lamborghini made 20 Reventon units and only five of the Veneno. Rumor has it that there will be 20 HyperVeloce coupes and 10 roadsters, although this isn’t necessarily a price indicator.

In recent months we’ve busy trying to figure out what the upcoming 2015 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce and 2016 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera may bring to the table once they arrive in showrooms. We also learned that Lambo has put the Asterion hybrid on hold in order to focus on the Urus SUV. Meanwhile, the Italians were actually working on a new supercar which will be shown at Pebble Beach.
That’s the word from Motor Trend, which claims that Lambo’s new supercar will be a limited-edition model similar to the 2008 Lamborghini Reventon and 2013 Lamborghini Veneno, launched in 2008 and 2013, respectively. If this is true, we’ll be looking at yet another ultra-limited, ultra-expensive Lambo built in just a few units and sold for millions of dollars each. And speaking of looking, it seems we won’t actually see it at Pebble Beach, as Lamborghini plans to only offer a sneak peak to potential customers. A public debut could take place at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
Details as to what this new supercar might be about are scarce, but the aforementioned source claims it will be based on the Aventador SV and feature about 800 horsepower (60 horses more than the SV), a revised body with better aerodynamics, and weigh less than the already impressive SuperVeloce. Production will reportedly be limited to only 30 units (20 coupes and 10 roadsters) and cost at least $2 million.

The Lamborghini Veneno made its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and shocked pretty much everyone, but not everyone took too kindly to it. Now, you’ll get a chance to see if this is either the best or worst Lamborghini you’ve ever seen, as Lambo will display the supercar at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend.
Prior to it hitting the Pebble Beach Concourse, the Veneno will make its North American debut on August 16th, at The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering, which will also bring into focus classic Lamborghini models, like the 1963 350 GTV. Veneno’s unveiling in Monterey is part of Lamborghini’s celebration of its 50th anniversary.
"We’re celebrating 100 years of innovation in half the time – what better way than by showing the first Lamborghini ever built alongside our latest racing prototype and road-going super sports car - the Veneno."
The $4 million supercar will be delivered to its lucky owners later this year.

Lamborghini is bringing a few of its “must-see” cars to the Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach this weekend. Included in this showcase will be the 2009 Gallardo LP560-4, 2008 Reventón and the 1989 Lamborghini P140 prototype.
The 2009 Gallardo LP560-4 is the latest from Lamborghini. It replaces the current Gallardo by offering a new 5.2 liter V-10 engine, permanent four-wheel drive transmission and an improved suspension.
The Reventón is Lamborghini’s ultra-exclusive supercar. It is Lamborghini’s most powerful and most expensive car ever. It is built from carbon fiber, and there are only 20 in the world. Although the mechanics are heavily based on the Murciélago LP640, the output of Reventón’s 6.5-liter V-12 is upgraded to 650 horsepower.
The P140 is significant because it bridges the gap between the Jalpa and the Diablo. The Jalpa was the “affordable” Lamborghini. It was built to compete with sub-supercar types, similar to the current Gallardo. Although it was never it was put into production, the P140 provides a clear visual evolution that took Lamborghini into the 90s.
For those who think the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione is not exclusive enough, try a one-of-a-kind Lamborghini. Meet the 1996 Lamborghini Zagato Raptor. Based on the Diablo VT, this was a styling exercise by Italian coachbuilder Zagato to look at the feasibility for production. This is the only one that ever materialized, possibly due to the fact that occupants needed to enter the car through the single-piece canopy top. It also features a all-wheel drive and a race inspired box section chassis.
If you’re still interested in this 492-hp V-12 supercar, get out your checkbook and head to Pebble Beach. The Raptor is scheduled to be part of the Blackhawk Collection’s items at the concourse’s auction that begins today.
