The new 217mph Lamborghini Aventador SVJ-MoreDetailed

The 6.5-litre V12 petrol engine produces 759bhp - the most power from any naturally aspirated Lamborghini
It can accelerate from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds and from 0-124mph in 8.6 seconds
That means you can lose your driving licence in less time than it takes Usain Bolt to finish a 100-metre sprint
 The Aventador SVJ was launched at Pebble Beach in California alongside Audi's PB18 e-tron supercar concept

 When Lamborghini launches a new car you can bet your house on it looking so outrageous that your eyes will bulge from their sockets. And this latest model is no different. It's called the Aventador Superveloce Jota (SVJ) and it's the most powerful naturally aspirated V12 road car the Italian super-brand has ever produced. Oh, and it looks like Kermit on steroids.
It's so quick that it has set a new lap record for a production model around the Nurburgring - unofficial confirmation that it's the fastest thing you can buy with four wheels and number plates.

In traditional Lamborghini style, there's no subtlety to the unveiling of its latest tarmac gobbling supercar, showcasing the new Aventador SVJ in a fetching luminous green.With 759bhp, the 6.5-litre engine is the most potent of all road-legal V12s the brand has ever unleashed onto the streets.
The Aventador SVJ accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 2.8 seconds. If that doesn't squeeze the air from your lungs, it will reach 124mph from a standstill in just 8.6 seconds.

 That means you could lose your license for speeding quicker than Usain Bolt can finish a 100-metre sprint.
Take it on track - or to an abandoned airfield - and you can put the claimed top speed of 'in excess of 217mph' to the test, if you've got the nerve.

Just to confirm the mind-boggling speed of this thing, Lamborghini has rubbed every other car makers nose in the dirt with the fastest recorded lap time for a production model around the infamous Nurburgring circuit.
 It completed the 12.8-mile Nordschleife route in six minutes and a shade under 45 seconds.
That's two seconds quicker than the previous record holder, the Porsche 911 GT2. And to think, Lamborghini has smashed the German manufacturer's record in its own back yard.
 The new front apron is joined by a pair of snarling nostril intakes and the engine cover and rear panel has more slits in it than a pair of teenager's ripped jeans.
And, of course, it wouldn't be a proper supercar if it didn't have a wing big enough for you to host a party buffet on and a rear diffuser with more fins than a frenzy of great whites.
It also gets reworked suspension and the rear-wheel steering system has been tweaked to make it as infinitely precise in the corners as it is blisteringly quick on the straights.
 The car was officially revealed at this year's Monterey Car Week in California, along with a limited edition version called SVJ63 - a tribute to Lamborghini’s founding year of 1963, with 63 examples being produced. 
Lamborghini has yet to deliver the final blow of shock - the price - but expect it cost a significant premium on the Aventador S, which rings in at just over £270,000.
