That gives it the official production car fastest time, relegating the Porsche 911 GT2 RS into second spot. Other cars, like the electric NIO EP9, may have gone as quick but may have done so on non road-legal tyres. The Lambo SV Jota pummelled the ‘Ring tarmac via a set of very legal Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyres which will be an option when the car goes on sale later in the summer. Standard tyres are Pirelli P Zero Corsa.
How else does the Aventador SV Jota differ from the standard car? Lambo says it is more powerful, lighter, with new active aero and re-engineered four-wheel-drive, rear-wheel steering and ESC systems. The car is said to be significantly stiffer than the Aventador LP 750-4 SV, and the steering has been retuned.
