Novitec has decided to put Sant’Agata Bolognese’s V12 Hulk on a diet by shaving off some fat from a very green Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce Jota. At 1,525 kilograms (3,362 pounds) before adding fluids, the SVJ isn’t super heavy considering it packs a massive engine, but the Bavarian tuner wanted to remove some of the weight. It ultimately took off 19 kilograms (42 pounds) without using carbon fiber as some would be tempted to believe.
The weight loss was achieved by swapping out the stock exhaust system and replacing it with a custom stainless setup developed by Novitec with or without actively controlled flaps to modify the V12’s soundtrack. According to the tuner, the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter mill breathes better now and delivers a more exciting note throughout the rpm range as you can hear in the video attached at the bottom. Metal catalysts can be had to go with the custom exhaust to achieve the diet and improve performance.
