2019 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ confirmed, teased

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has been teased blasting around the Nurburgring, confirming one detail, but leaving so many others up in the air.

The teaser video's title and end tag, "Aventador SVJ meets the Nurburgring", confirms the rumour, as J is pronounced "jota" in Spanish.
