LAMBORGHINI SVJ HIRE : DISCUSSED
If you take a quick look at our self-drive hire fleet it should be fairly obvious that we are huge Lamborghini fans. The Sant'Agata Bolognese based manufacturer produces some of the most emotive and aesthetically dynamic cars in the world and we’ve found our customers resonate with this as much as we do. After hearing about the joy our Huracan LP610-4 was able to bring to so many of our customers, we decided to add another Lamborghini to fleet in the form of the Urus. We’ve covered the collection and it’s spec in a recent blog post, which can be found here, but for more information on hiring it, click this link, here. With this latest acquisition we became one of the first hire companies to offer Lamborghini self drive hire, not just in London, but in the entire UK, a feat we also achieved with our New 2019 Mercedes G63 AMG hire in London.
Despite these recent fleet additions we are always on the look out for extra vehicles to entice new and existing customers, and continuing with the trend, another Lamborghini has caught our attention. However, this isn’t just any Lamborghini, we’re talking about the Aventador Superveloce Jota. We’ve seen a few standard Aventadors on the hire market, but never anything as extreme or special as this. Before we ask the ultimate question, let’s explore this new model a little bit.
The Aventador was first unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motorshow. It took the Murcielago form and made it far more angular and aggressive, but retained a naturally aspirated V12. Since then Lamborghini has surpassed their 4000 Aventador production estimate with the addition of several special editions, such as the Pirelli, 50th Anniversario, Miura Homage and uprated and lighter SV. Recently, Lamborghini updated the base Aventador line with the S models, that come with 4-wheel steering and new Ego mode where the driver can individually select options from drive-train, suspension, steering and exhaust to build their custom setup. However, the Aventador line is ageing and now coming to an end, but before it leaves the production line forever, Lamborghini have created a limited edition last hurrah – the SuperVeloce Jota.
Lamborghini have teamed ‘superveloce’ meaning ‘super fast’ with ‘Jota’, a term symbolising the race car class from the FIA’s criteria. Surely then, the ‘super fast racecar’ is the ultimate expression of the Aventador. Limited to just 800 units, 300 more than the SV, it is powered by the same rear mounted 6.5l naturally aspirated V12, now producing 759bhp and 720nm of torque. This is good for a 2.9s 0-62mph time and a top speed of 218mph. It comes with the ALA active and dynamic aero system from the Huracan Performante, with air piped from the new front splitter through carbon channels around the Y shaped rear glass panel to the rear wing, which can assist straight-line speed and cornering dynamics. It also comes with permanent 4 wheel drive, 4-wheel steering and a new exhaust system that’s lighter and allows exhaust gasses to exit more quickly (but don’t worry, the V12 still screams). It also comes with the same configurable Ego driving mode, satnav, high end Sensonum surround sound system, DAB digital radio and a reversing camera and parking sensors (all to make your hire experience that little bit more carefree and enjoyable).
So the question is, should we add one of these lightweight, limited edition monsters to our fleet? It would give new and existing customers the chance to experience a truly special and exclusive exotic car. Should EVHire be the first hire car company to offer Lamborghini SVJ hire in London?
