Just when you thought cars couldn’t get any faster, any more radical or more outrageous. The Lamborghini Aventador J the epitomy of Lamborghini DNA.
The most uncompromising car in the company’s history. This car the ultimate supercar, rewards the pilot and co-pilot radical super bike performance with its 700hp V12 6.5-liter engine, lack of windscreen and ultra light dynamic coachwork.
The Lamborghini Aventador exterior and interior meld into each other. The designers and engineers in Sant’Agata Bolognese not only removed entirely any need for a roof, but also dispensed with the front windshield. Drivers of the Aventador J must be suitably equipped and prepared for driving speeds higher than 300 Km/h. A helmet is necessity for most driving.
The Aventador J, is based on the Lamborghini Aventador but carries on the glorious heritage of the earlier days of Lamborghini from the legendary 1970’s Jota – The hottest Lamborghini Miura ever built. The car remains a one-off but some owners had their own Miuras modified for the full effect. The story goes in 1971 the one car made was crashed on an open ring road in Brescia and burned.
The Aventador J makes extensive use of carbon fiber and a new Lamborghini patented material called “carbon skin” for the interior. Lamborghini specialists have developed an exclusive version of carbon fiber material for the Aventador J. In its first automotive application, this carbon fiber fabric called “Carbonskin” made of woven carbon fibers soaked in a very special epoxy resin that stabilizes the fiber structure and keeps the material soft. Like a hi-tech fabric, the carbon fiber mats fit perfectly to every shape. In the Aventador J, the complete cockpit and parts of the seats are clad in this material and shimmer in matt carbon fiber black. Lamborghini have said that there will be many potential applications for the material, even very high-end clothing.
Lamborghini have announced that this car is a unique work of art licensed for the road a ‘one off.’ At the end of the Geneva Motor Show, this legend will be sold and reports are saying has already for $2.8 million, or about 2.1 million euros. There are no other prototypes and not even one for the Lamborghini Museum. A truly street-legal work of supercar art.
Impatiently we can await the Aventador Roadster and the hint of a Lamborghini SUV.
