Lamborghini is turning up the style and raising the bar in 2020 with its V12 Aventador SVJ roadster. It’s the classic reference of an undiluted, hardcore supercar. Built for speed and awe it’s powered by a magnificent 759-hp 6.5-liter V-12 stuck in the middle of the car. It’s free of turbochargers, superchargers, so no worries about fuel costs on this one. The engine is truly Lamborghini, a v12 not rivaled by any in its class.

The SVJ Roadster is an embodiment of beauty and beast. Sitting like a titan carved from the fiery mountains of Sakurajima every inch of it looks and feels like its birth from the stroke of a master artist. Starting at over $600,000 it’s a figure you’d be proud to pay.

The SVJ stands for Super Veloce Jota. It pays tribute to the Miura Jota, a model that test driver Bob Wallace modified in 1970 to meet the FIA’s Appendix J rules.

The SVJ’s engine is reinforced with titanium intake valves and fitted with a new intake system and a La Scala–worthy exhaust.

Lamborghini will make a total of 800 roadsters and will probably end production by 2021 as the Aventador series hits its 10th and final year in what has been a smooth and beautiful ride.

Caranddriver.com Reviewer, has this to say about the operation of the car itself.

The scissor doors are silly and difficult to close, but they’re so beloved that they are as much a part of this Lamborghini as the V-12. The Aventador remains, by far, the most civilized of the 12-cylinder Lambos. The driving position is good, there’s room for even tall drivers to stretch their legs, and the seats are supportive and shaped to accommodate just about anyone. The steering wheel is manually adjustable for height and reach. The shift paddles are in the right place even when the steering wheel is sawing about catching a lascivious powerslide.

Here’s a breakdown of the SJV’s specs;
