Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with some information about the upcoming release of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
The information for this article is taken directly from today’s Australian and authored by Phil King. Phil refers to the price of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ as $949,690 (plus on-road costs), so I decided to do a little calculation, courtesy of the Queensland Transport website.
In Queensland with our crazy stamp-duty on ‘luxury’ cars over $100,000, the on-road costs run to an eye-watering $58,254.15. And that’s without the extraordinary dealer delivery and handling fee which I expect that will be circa $10,000.
So if you run the abacus over this lot, you’re digging into your wallet for around $1,017, 894 drive away, no more to pay.
Or you can look at it another way – you only have to pay 105.62 bitcoins. (@ September 5 conversion rate). Sounds cheaper, doesn’t it?
Anyhow, here’s Phil’s story.
“Lamborghini’s flagship Aventador SVJ will be one of the most expensive cars you can buy at $949,640 plus on-road costs when it arrives here in the middle of next year.
The latest version of the Italian brand’s V12 supercar already has captured the attention of enthusiasts with a new production car lap record of six minutes, 44.97 seconds, around Germany’s famous 21km Nurburgring track, beating the previous mark of 6:47.3 set by Porsche’s GT2 RS.
To achieve that, SVJ wrings more power and torque from the mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 compared with the Aventador S. Power rises by 22kW to 566kW while torque climbs 30Nm to 720Nm. Acceleration is blistering, with 100km/h arriving in just 2.8 seconds on the way to a top speed of more than 350km/h.
Equally impressive is the car’s stopping distance, with braking from 100km/h taking only 30m. Lamborghini says changes to the SVJ focused on improving aerodynamics, with 40 per cent more downforce compared with the Aventador S and optimised active components that adjust airflow for more effective cornering.
It also features extra lightweight components, including special aluminium rims and an exposed exhaust. Other refinements include a stiffer suspension and revised all-wheel-drive system.
The SVJ sits at the Lamborghini pinnacle, above the $788,914 Aventador S Coupe and $825,530 S Roadster. Aside from exotic collector’s items such as the Pagani Huayra Roadster at $5.5 million, only the Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase starts higher, at $990,000 drive-away. A special SVJ 63 edition of the car, limited to 63 examples and supplementing the 900 already planned, was unveiled at Pebble Beach last week.”
