    Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record. Relax, no-one’s gone quicker than Timo Bernhard in the Porsche 919 Tribute, instead it’s the fastest production car record that’s tumbled again.

    The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, a car that isn’t even officially unveiled for another month, has done a 6m 44.97s lap. To save you the bother of having to wield your thumbs in a Google direction, that’s 2.27secs faster than the previous holder, Porsche’s 690bhp GT2 RS.

    Prior to that, it was another Lamborghini, the Huracán Performante that held the lap record, a 6m 52.01s. But the comparison you actually want to draw is between the new SV Jota and 2015’s Aventador SV, which in doing a 6m 59.73s lap gave us some of the most memorable on-board footage ever.
