From 12 to 14 April, the Motor Show Auto 2019 will offer the Baltic premieres of three new vehicles. One of them - the most powerful and fastest Lamborghini Aventador SVJ!
The exclusive Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ stands out for its exclusivity, power and speed, and for the fact that this is one of the last supercars equipped with an atmospheric 6.5 litre V12 engine that develops 770 hp, sprints from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and can hit a top speed of over 350 km/h.

Compared with the regular Lamborghini Aventador, the SVJ offers increased performance and the best aerodynamic efficiency providing high downforce and higher grip allowing to take high-speed corners faster. All of these enhancements made this Italian supercar the fastest serial car in the legendary Nurburgring, Germany, outperforming the previous record-breaker – Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
Only 963 will be made – the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ costs over EUR 400,000. This and other Lambos can be officially purchased at the authorised dealer of this Italian car brand in the Baltic States, also known as the Škoda importer in Latvia. Moreover, the visitors of “Auto 2019” will also have an opportunity to see again the Lamborghini Urus showcased in the Auto 100 exposition.
The dynamic Škoda Scala
The Baltic premiere of the Škoda Scala will be held on 12 April. Similar to Audi A3 Sportback, the Škoda Scala sits somewhere in between a classic hatchback and a station wagon. The Škoda Scala has an extended interior space nearly equivalent to that of the Škoda Octavia, and its boot is one of the roomiest in this segment. Moreover, this is the first of Škoda’s series showcasing the brand’s innovated exterior and interior design language, premium quality finishing and fully-digital instrument panel.
The sporty Hyundai i30 Fastback N
The sporty Hyundai i30 Fastback N is the third car premiered in the Baltic Region. This car has a unique fastback body type in the compact car segment, which is a combination of the four-door coupé and a practical hatchback. Moreover, it belongs to the N modification, which is the abbreviation for the Hyundai sport versions, like GTI and RS for VW and Škoda respectively.
The Hyundai i30 Fastback N has a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine developing up to 275 hp, accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds. Its top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. Video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lMFgqgO_h0
Robust off-roaders – Jeep Wrangler and Suzuki Jimny
The “Auto 2019” motor show is the place to see and compare the newest cars. Two most interesting cars to compare at “Auto 2019” will be the new generation off-road SUVs – Jeep Wrangler and Suzuki Jimny. Visually, they practically resemble their legendary predecessors, technologically, they are completely innovated. Both of these robust off-road SUVs are excellent cars for adventurers.
Tough rivals from Japan – Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V
Those, who need a car for daily commuting, “Auto 2019” provides an opportunity to compare two fierce rivals from Japan – the new-generation Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, both available in the hybrid version. Those, who look for a sporty SUV, are welcome to appreciate not only the Lamborghini Urus, but also the more affordable Škoda Kodiaq RS and SEAT Ateca Cupra.
Winner of the 2019 International Van of the Year Award – Opel Combo
The new Opel Combo, a winner of the 2019 International Van of the Year Award (IVOTY 2019), will be represented at “Auto 2019” with its Life modification, that offering up to 7 seats is suitable for large families.
The Nissan Leaf cut in half
Considering that electric cars are an inevitable future, one of the most interesting exhibits in the New Cars Hall, offering an insight in to the state-of-art automotive technology, will be the Nissan Leaf cut in half. This extraordinary task took one and a half month to complete, and, as the assignees point out, the most challenging task to do was to make all the equipment operate and the car drive.
