GRABBING THE BULL BY ITS HORNS: The 2020 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

Written by Nicole Ellan James

2024 PALM BEACH AUCTION – 2020 LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR SVJ – NO RESERVE

Lamborghini, renowned for its luxurious and high-performance sports cars, was founded in 1963 by Ferruccio Lamborghini, an Italian entrepreneur and tractor manufacturer. Born under the zodiac sign of Taurus, Ferruccio deeply appreciated bullfighting and the strength and determination associated with the bull. His company initially aimed to challenge the dominance of Ferrari, known for its prancing horse logo, which is meant to symbolize the command of a domain that many would have thought unconquerable in the sports car market. In an effort to send a clear message of his determination and his goals, Ferruccio incorporated the bull into the Lamborghini logo. Lamborghini’s first creation, the 350 GT, debuted in 1964, setting the stage for a series of iconic models to follow, including the Miura, Countach, Diablo and Murciélago. Over time, Lamborghini’s engineering expertise has expanded and led to the development of groundbreaking models like the Gallardo and Aventador.

Today, Lamborghini remains synonymous with luxury, performance and cutting-edge design, with a global presence and a dedicated following among enthusiasts and collectors alike. Among its flagship models is the 2020 Lamborghini Aventador Super Veloce Jota, or simply SVJ.

The Aventador SVJ stands as a pinnacle of automotive engineering and design, epitomizing the sheer excitement and allure of high-performance supercars. Born from Lamborghini’s relentless pursuit of speed, precision and avant-garde aesthetics, the Aventador SVJ is a testament to the brand’s commitment to pushing boundaries.

At the heart of the 2020 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ lies a naturally aspirated V12 engine. This 6.5-liter powerhouse produces 770 horsepower and 531 ft/lbs of torque, propelling the car from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds with a top speed that exceeds 217 mph. It is one of the fastest Lamborghinis produced to date, having set a record for a production car at the Nürburgring with a lap time of 6:44.97. The combination of an advanced 7-speed single-clutch automatic transmission and an innovative four-wheel-drive system ensures that power is harnessed and distributed with surgical precision, offering a driving experience that is both exhilarating and controlled.

What sets the Aventador SVJ apart from its base counterpart is its handling and aerodynamics. Lamborghini’s ALA (Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva) system, active aerodynamics technology that dynamically adjusts the car’s aerodynamic elements to optimize downforce and drag. This results in improved stability during high-speed maneuvers and enhanced grip, ensuring the SVJ hugs the road with tenacity. The rear wing, flaps and other aerodynamic components adapt to driving conditions in real-time, providing an unparalleled level of agility and performance.

Inside the cockpit, the Aventador SVJ offers a blend of luxury and high-tech features, creating an immersive driving environment. Carbon fiber dominates the interior, emphasizing the car’s lightweight construction and racing pedigree with Alcantara touches throughout. The digital cockpit is a marvel of modern design, featuring a customizable TFT (thin-film-transistor) display that provides essential information at a glance. Lamborghini’s Infotainment System III, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, ensures that connectivity, navigation and entertainment are seamlessly integrated into the driving experience.

Beyond its technical prowess, the Aventador SVJ’s design is a work of art. The exterior is highlighted by aerodynamic lines, sharp angles and aggressive contours that suggest a sense of speed even when the car is stationary. The Y-shaped headlights, hexagonal exhaust pipes and iconic scissor doors contribute to the SVJ’s unmistakable Lamborghini DNA. The extensive use of carbon fiber not only enhances performance but also adds a futuristic and visually striking element to the car’s aesthetic.

During the 2024 Palm Beach Auction, April 18-20 at the South Florida Fairgrounds, Barrett-Jackson bidders will have the opportunity to bid on a 2020 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ finished in Rosso Efesto Metallic. The special car is one of 900 produced and equipped with the Carbon Package, further adding to its desirability. With only a select number of vehicles available worldwide, owning an SVJ becomes a badge of distinction, placing the driver in an elite league of automotive enthusiasts.

From its ferocious V12 engine to the dynamic ALA system and the exclusive carbon-fiber-laden interior, every aspect of the SVJ is a testament to Lamborghini’s commitment

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
