At the Geneva motor show earlier this year, we were treated to the wonderful sight of the gorgeous Huracán Performante Spyder — but we were left wanting... It was the more hardcore Aventador SV J that we hoped we’d get an eyeful of. That didn’t happen but judging by these latest spy shots, it won’t be long before a production version is here for us to drool all over.

The wilder version of the already bonkers Aventador S has been spotted by our snapper before, camouflaged from front to back and roaming the streets but now he’s snapped the V12-powered beast tearing up its natural habitat — the Nurburgring. And from the images, we can see quite a lot of interesting detail.

For starters, the new front splitter, higher-positioned exhaust pipes, centre lock wheels, and a massive fixed rear wing have got us palpitating. This track-focused Aventador sure has it going on. When it eventually does make it to production, it’ll likely be extremely limited — the predecessor, the Aventador SV, was limited to 600 units but there could be even less than that of the new Jota variant. Remember, the Italians only made 28 examples of the Diablo Jota and the original Miura Jota and Aventador J were both one-off specials.

The Aventador SV J’s 6.5-litre could have as much as 800 horses (the Aventador S had 40 more than the standard version for a total of 730 and a similar increase seems in order) and although the model pictured is a coupe, we reckon it will be joined by a drop-top version too.

The SV J should (hopefully; we can’t wait!) debut later this year to shake up the supercar world.
