Lamborghini gives a sneak peek of the Aventador SVJ without any camouflage

It was back in July when we saw Lamborghini retake the coveted title of having the world's fastest production car lap around the infamous Nurburgring. With a lap time of 6:44.97, the Aventador SuperVeloce Jota (SVJ) beat the previous record holder, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, by almost three seconds.

Now, the company is preparing for the Aventador SVJ's world debut by releasing new teaser photos of their most powerful production raging bull to date. Without the camo livery covering key portions of the souped-up supercar, we get to see the Aventador SVJ's massive carbon fiber rear wing, huge center air intake and the brand's signature Verde Ithaca paintjob.

The huge wing at the back is part of the Aventador SVJ's active aero tech called 'Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva' (ALA). In a nutshell, the system helps the supercar generate more downforce during cornering and reduce drag while on the straights.

Besides getting a glimpse of the SVJ's active aero, Lamborghini also showed a sneak peek of the V12 powering the highly-tuned Aventador. The engine itself features what appears to be bronze-colored intake manifolds as well as the firing sequence of the 6.5-liter V12. If memory serves well, the Huracan Performante, as well as the 30th anniversary special of the Diablo, also came with these distinct manifold covers. It's safe to say Lamborghini only uses these manifold casings for special Lamborghini engines.

Exact details regarding the SVJ's output figures remain a mystery however. Apparently, it will have around 800 PS from its naturally-aspirated V12, a 9000 rpm redline, and a top speed of over 330 km/h. It will also come with specially-made Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires as standard but will also be available with P Zero Trofeo R rubber as an option.

It will be making its official debut at this year's Monterey Car Weekend at Pebble Beach. For those that have yet to see the Aventador SVJ's record run at the Nurburgring, watch the video below.
