I know people have been taking about how to pronounce the name Jota, and I think I have the right answer.

According to the Miura issue of the Octane magazine, which included a feature with the creator of the Jota, Bob Wallace, says that it is indeed pronounced

"Yota".

"J" doesn't exist in modern Italian, but in Latin, on which Italian is based, "J" is prounced as "Y" like in names like Jarno or Juventus, which are pronounced Yarno and Yuventus.

It could be because the original Jota was built to FIA's Appendix J regulations.

I don't know how Lamborghini's going to pronounce it this time, but I think the original was pronounced "Yota".
