Lamborghini Aventador J Speedster One-off Officially Presented [Photo Gallery]
Well, it’s 2012 and Lamborghini is using the Swiss event to bring us the same scheme, but applied on the much more exuberant Aventador. The result is, just like back then, a one-off, which wears the Aventador J Speedster designation. No, the “J” doesn’t come from Jotta, famous name from the Raging Bull’s past, but is inspired by the technical racing rules of FIA.
Measuring 4,890 mm in length, 2,030 mm in width and 1,110 mm in height, this is the lowest car in Lambo’s history. The carmaker claims that it’s also the “the most uncompromising open super sports car of its entire history” and we can see this claim being backed by a top speed of over 300 km/h (186 mph) with the wind literally in your face.
The design of the car means that the exterior mixes with the interior, as the body has a center line that goes through the middle of the cabin. Moving to the rear, we find a motorsport-inspired look, with the exhaust tip showing a mix between Lambo’s traditional one and a four-piece design.
The entire vehicle looks like a two-piece creation, with a red body and a multitude of carbon fiber aerodynamic elements, including a front one (for the fascia), side ones (skirts and air intakes), as well as two placed behind the heads of the occupants and rear ones (for the fascia and a wing).
Just like in the Coupe, power comes from a 6.5-liter V12 that deliver 700 naturally aspirated hp and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque, being matted to a Lamborghini Independent Shifting Rods gearbox and sending its power to the road via an all-wheel drive system.
Before you grab your card and your helmet, we have to tell you that the one-off has already found an owner, which agreed to pay over EUR2.2 million (USD2.9 million at the current exchange rates) for it.
