Do these cars have special seat belt/cup-like, apparati to house the drivers "Nads"? Just think how fast they would be without the weight of those curling stone sized cajones.

Are these all road legal cars? Just wondering, that's insane. Can you imagine in telling someone in the 90's that a normal car would go sub 7min around the ring? They would have had you killed for saying something so stupid.

Great googly moogly. Back in my day I used to have to grab a bowl of popcorn before I started a ring vid. Nowadays the lap is over with before the bags even done popping. Cars these days! I tell you what.

These drivers are unreal. I can’t imagine how many laps he’s got to have around the ring to be able to hit every turn near perfect like that

The track looks like it has a lot of dips and uneven spots..I’d be scared shitless at those speeds lol

God damn this car is sexy.

https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-shows/monterey-car-week/a22822020/2019-lamborghini-aventador-svj-debut-specs-photos-price/

Its 6.5-liter V12 produces 770 horsepower, making this one of the most powerful naturally aspirated road cars of all time. Maximum torque is 531 lb-ft at 6750 rpm, while the power peak comes at 8500 rpm. Lamborghini claims a dry weight of 3362 lbs, which is 110 lbs lighter than an Aventador S coupe according to the factory. Acceleration is jaw-dropping, too, with 62 mph arriving in 2.8 seconds and 124 mph coming in 8.6. Top speed is 217 mph.
And now, we get to the Aventador SVJ's biggest number—price. In the US, this car will cost $517,770. Only 900 will be built for the entire world, and 63 of those will be SVJ 63s, a special-edition commemorating Lamborghini's founding year, 1963.

The aventador has been my favorite Lamborghini of recent years, both in terms of sound and over all style. May be my most favorite one of all time. This one looks even better!

I have always said I wont own a bright colored car, but I would own that If I could. Does Lamborghini have a tt v8 or tt v10 option at all or is that a possibility down the road?

Wouldn’t be surprised as it seems like all the supercars are switching to smaller displacement turbo setups and/or hybrid setups. Personally I think it’s badass as fuck that this car is NA and holds the record but boosted cars are obviously easier to make faster.

I really like the look, very fast car . I don't know if they changed the transmission but the Aventador single clutch trans sucks in normal driving compering to a dual clutch found in Huracan /R8
