There's nothing better than the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ right now. Power, performance, and a top dog position on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, it's no joke. At least part of that can be attributed to the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva 2.0, the automaker's active aerodynamic system.
It's a big name for a complex system. Thankfully, Lamborghini has a video that helps us understand. The ALA 2.0 dynamically adjusts itself to optimize aerodynamics. This is the real-life concept of the "shape-shifting" race car McLaren was talking about last week.
Lamborghini also brags about the weight. The vehicle's hydraulic system is approximately 80 percent lighter than other vehicles. When it comes to supercars, every ounce counts. The Aventador SVJ also features the same hinged flap system and underside flow channels seen on the Hiracan Performante. This helps control downforce or drag reduction.
All of these combine to create a maximized, efficient racer. During long straights, the rear spoiler flaps open to increase airflow and decrease drag. This gives it the best acceleration speeds possible. When braking and turning, the flaps close to increase downforce and drop speeds down quickly while maintaining control. This allows for more grip when making those tight turns.
It also features turning assistance in the form of Aero Vectoring. When making a turn, a flap on one side of the car will open while the other closes. This makes the outer section of the car less resistant to the wind. This means tighter turns with less driver struggle.
