Aventador SV-J Discussion and New Information

Recommended Posts

Damn!! Both those cars look so damn good.

Agree with @Destructo - the LP670SV and ASVJ both just look sooooo damn perfect in white!

The SVJ is just epic. I love that whole rear piece coming off.  I just cant bring myself to lose 200k on one easy. 

That's a hit for sure. What do you expect them to bottom out at? My expectation would be the #63 editions will be the ones to hold a better value. But I could be wrong, look at the 40th Anniversary edition Murcielagos!

Some be disappointed when they don't get one - especially the roadster. 

Lamborghini did not increase production - adding URUS one offs and LB48 

Debating letting go my SV - R it's great looking and could hold well. 

I think Lamborghini is a whole new drivers car first company than it was in the past even with more production - V12's long term always do well.

I actually think today a Murcielago 40th edition is worth big bucks.

No kidding? Last time I looked at them no one wanted the paint, and they were usually the cheapest. Glad to see them appreciating, I always loved that one.

SVJ the last NA V12?

 

Lamborghini Confirms Aventador and Huracan Successors Will Be Plug-In Hybrids

 

Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali confirmed in an interview that the automaker's next generation of supercars will be plug-in hybrids (PHEVs).

The executive was asked when Lamborghini will roll out its first PHEV model, and he identified the upcoming Aventador replacement as said vehicle.

"Probably around 2021, with the Aventador replacement that will add a motor to its V-12 engine," Domenicali told Automotive News. "The same will happen later also on the V-10 family when we replace the Huracan. A plug-in model is the only way to maintain performance and keep Lamborghini's engine sound while also reducing emissions."

Domenicali's statements corroborate a report from September that alleged Lamborghini's next-gen supercars would make heavy use of hybridization. According to that article, the Huracan's replacement could reportedly make up to 985 horsepower, and the Aventador's as much as 1,172 horsepower. By then, the company will allegedly be under control of Porsche instead of Audi, with changing of the guard claimed to be scheduled for January of 2019.

Lamborghini's volume seller, the Urus crossover, is one the company wishes to hybridize as soon as possible, but meeting current demand for the model is a higher priority.

"We are still working on this, but we have realigned our priorities," Domenicali continued. "First and foremost, we have to boost production of the Urus, and adding a powertrain variant that is extremely complex to build doesn't help."

Domenicali added that no powertrains smaller than the Urus' V-8 would power the model any time soon and that a PHEV V-6 powertrain has already been trialed, but wasn't adequately powerful.

"We have seen that a V-6-powered plug-in did not offer the performance level a Lamborghini should deliver. We began working on a V-8 plug-in, but we are not there yet."

The good news is the V-12 lives to see another day (a few years) and the extra HP will be an added bonus..

Three years is a long time -  Porsche does not know their future let alone taking over Lamborghini - Bentley Audi are struggling. 

Enjoy the present J it's an improved SV which in the real world is fast loud and gorgeous. 

Lambo R&D began spending money on new models -  if Porsche takes over expect cuts vs Winkelmans vision where he is now  taking Bugatti to all new levels. 

Only known truth is the success of URUS which means more production. 

The J will ship for 2 years - would like to think it's the last NA V12.

It will be the last non-assisted N/A V12 I am sure. The sound and feel will still be there in the next model to come, but with the hybrid assist it won't be the same I think ....

Does anybody know how many roasters Lambo are making ?

Nothing has been mentioned.  I was at Monterey and spoke to some of the top brass and even back in August they didnt even know or would not say at least. But i got the impression they really had not made a decision. I am hoping it is way way less since I have a roadster allocation.

It won't be the same, that is assured. Thankfully though, the power will be there in spades, no doubt. I am not a betting man, but I would wager they continue to use naturally aspirated V12's for their one-off, or limited-edition runs of vehicles.
