Lamborghini AVENTADOR J 330km/h
Geneva/Sant’Agata Bolognese, March 5, 2012. At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Automobili Lamborghini is presenting the most uncompromising open super sports car of its entire history. The Lamborghini Aventador J is a force of nature on wheels – supremely powerful and supremely open. The Aventador J offers its pilot and co-pilot an utterly indescribable experience of power and dynamics. At the same time, the 515 kW / 700 hp two-seater is a first class technology showcase, combining innovative solutions and brand new materials and demonstrating Automobili Lamborghini’s enormous expertise in carbon fiber technology.
The roofless, V12-powered supercar fetched about $2.8 million, or about 2.1 million euros at current exchange rates, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said on Tuesday at the Geneva motor show. That doesn’t include value-added taxes, he said.
A Lamborghini spokesperson declined to reveal the identity of the buyer.
The Aventador J summons the spirit of the 1970 Jota, a one-off version of the Miura. Like that car, the Aventador J is also a one-off, though it does offer an idea of the appearance of potential a roadster version of the Aventador.
The Aventador J packs 691 hp from the same 6.5-liter engine as its fixed-roof, serially produced sibling and is clad in a shade called Rosso Red. It makes extensive use of carbon fiber, including a patented material called “carbon skin” for the interior. The car is so extreme that the driver must wear a helmet, though the car can be registered for road use, Lamborghini says.
