The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster is the ultimate model in the bull manufacturer's line of rolling stock, aerodynamics and mechanics.
First, there is the first meeting. Even when stopped, the Aventador is impressive brutality. Long, wide and low, its proportions out of the ordinary can only attract the eye. Externally, this version SVJ is distinguished by its huge flap that is not only for the look, far from it, and its rear cover specific redesigned gills. Exuberant wish, this car was mainly designed to impose and the least we can say is that the work of designers Lamborghini is successful.
After touring the craft a few times to discover its many attractive facets, comes the magic moment of handing over the keys. Parked in the center of Brussels, the Aventador is encircled by a horde of onlookers who take a picture under every angle. It is true that it is difficult to stop with such a car without creating a riot …
The opening of the elytron door alone is a unique experience. On the other hand, slipping inside the cockpit requires certain contortionist abilities, because the seat is positioned at ground level and it is easy to hit the top of the windshield with the forehead! When you let yourself go in the seat, its lack of padding instantly reminds you of the ultra-sporty nature of the car. A push-button with a missile-laden lid allows you to reveal the heart of the beast. In your back hides a motor that you will not see in the coming years: a V12 atmospheric 6.5 liters, developing 770 hp, excuse the little! When it starts, it shakes the whole crate.
Compared to an Aventador S from which it is derived, the SVJ weighs 50 kg less thanks to the use of lightweight materials, such as carbon. Suddenly, this relative stripping gives the interior a little narrow a more "racing" atmosphere. The test vehicle that has been entrusted to us is a Roadster version, with a removable "targa" roof, against which the top of your servant's skull is rubbed, which measures only 1.86m. To travel comfortably, it will be necessary to settle down …
When you become one with the machine, it's time to start the first report. The dryness of suspensions on our broken roads is indicative of the tracker's claims of the SVJ. The least butt on which you ride and it's assured lumbago! Already damaged, the vertebrae are also subject to the constraints of accelerations of the beast, worthy of a fighter. With a 0 to 100 km / h shot in 2.9 seconds, this Lamborghini is not made for the little natures! It is simple: it is so fast that it is not really made for the road, where the legal limitations in force seem impossible to respect.
Because this is the dilemma of this car: too fast and too extreme, it is really difficult to assume on the road. Add to that a very poor peripheral visibility because of its width out of norms, the Aventador SVJ is really not at ease in agglomeration. Cut for performance, its robotised gearbox emits jerks when driving at normal speed. Radical to the end of the rims, it is just made to take pleasure by sending the devil any notion of reason. If you have the means, the Aventador SVJ is a collector to buy absolutely. Because soon, the new environmental standards will get the better of his big atmospheric V12, and his fantastic musicality …
