Remember the car Hazard got himself which worth over 200million naira?

Lamborghini Aventador

The Lamborghini Aventador, is a mid-engine sports car produced by the Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini.

In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador is named after a fighting bull .

Launch date and facts

Launched on 28 February 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show, five months after its initial unveiling in Sant'Agata Bolognese , the vehicle, internally codenamed LB834, was designed to replace the then-decade-old Murciélago as the new flagship model.

Soon after the Aventador's unveiling, Lamborghini announced that it had sold 12 cars, with deliveries starting in the second half of 2011.

By March 2016, Lamborghini had built 5,000 Aventadors, in five years.

Production of the Aventador was planned to be limited to 4,000 vehicles; however, in 2016, it achieved the 5,000 unit milestone.

The molds used to make the carbon-fibre monocoque are expected to last 500 molds each and only 8 have been made.

The car's shape borrows heavily from Lamborghini's limited-edition Reventón and the Estoque concept car.

The Aventador was unveiled at Lummus Park , Miami, followed by Miami International Airport, followed by Auto China 2014 (with Nazionale configuration via Lamborghini Ad Personam personalization program).

Hazard's new toy

Popular Belgian football star and Real Madrid FC winger, Eden Hazard wows fans with his recently acquired Lamborghini Aventador SVJ supercar worth ₦243.2million (£500,000).

The Belgian player appeared at Real Madrid's training ground with a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ worth 500,000 euros, a real gem of the automotive industry.

It was the first time that the Real Madrid attacker was seen around Valdebebas with that car, an exclusive model that can be customised exclusively by the client that has the money to buy it.

Unveiled at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance , the Aventador SVJ ( S uper V eloce J ota) is a track focused iteration of the Aventador S and an improvement over the Aventador SV.

The 6.5-litre L539 V12 engine used in the entire Aventador lineage has been reworked and now generates a maximum power output of 770 PS (566 kW; 759 hp) at 8,500 rpm and 720 N⋅m (531 lb⋅ft) of torque at 6,750 rpm.

The weight saving measures such as the extensive use of carbon fibre, and titanium in the exhaust system has brought the weight down to 1,525 kg (3,362 lb), giving the car a power-to-weight ratio of 0.5 hp/kg.

The Aventador SVJ can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 8.6 seconds and can attain a top speed of over 352 km/h (219 mph).

A camouflaged prototype of the variant had previously made a new production car lap around the Nurburgring Nordschleife in July 2018, beating the previous record holder, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS by setting a lap time of 6:44.97 with Lamborghini test driver Marco Mapelli behind the wheel achieved by using the Pirelli Pzero Trofeo R tyres available with the car as an option.

The Aventador SVJ is the first production V12 Lamborghini model to feature Lamborghini's Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system.

This allows the car to achieve 40% more downforce than the Aventador SV and 1% reduction in the coefficient of drag.

The system adds aerodynamic components to the car including a disconnected front splitter, tri-dimensional air outlet on the bonnet, a large carbon fibre rear wing with a central fin, underbody aero design with vortex generators, and a large rear diffuser.

The system works in conjunction with Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva 2.0 (LDVA 2.0) management system, which uses inertial sensors to control the car's aero in 500 milliseconds.

The Aventador SVJ "63 Edition", a special edition commemorating the company's year of foundation (1963), featuring a special white livery with the number 63 more prominent on the car would be first offered for sale and limited to just 63 units, while the whole production run of the Aventador SVJ would be limited to just 963 units in total including the 63 units, with deliveries starting in the beginning of 2019.

This car puts Hazard in the league of professional footballers like Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba and many others who own a Lamborghini Aventador in their car collection.
