Lamborghini has taken the Aventador supercar and created the roofless Aventador J that you see here. But before you label it as a radical concept car that will never be produced, think again. Lamborghini has created this one-off convertible Aventador that has already found an owner that paid a whopping 2.1 million euros for it.
“With the Lamborghini Aventador J, we have molded our brand DNA into its most definitive form to-date. This automobile is as extreme and as uncompromising as only a Lamborghini can be,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The new Lamborghini Aventador J is the most radical open supersports car of Lamborghini’s history. Its name comes from our tradition and combines an unconventional design with technology innovation. Nowadays we are confronted with several regulations that we face in the spirit of challenge. The Aventador J is the proof that, despite the rules, Lamborghini will always make people dream, even in the future.”
The Aventador J is based on the Aventador LP 700-4 and is powered by the same 6.5L V12 with 700 horsepower. You will notice that the Aventador J not only does away with a roof, but its windshield has been deleted. Even without a front windshield, Lamborghini claims that the Aventador J will reach speeds in excess of 186 mph. To save weight Lamborghini’s engineers have created a new carbon fiber material that it’s calling “carbonskin.” It’s made of woven carbon fibers soaked with a very special epoxy resin that stabilizes the fiber structure and keeps the material soft. The seats and complete cockpit are covered in carbonskin.
Unfortunately, Lamborghini has no plans to produce more than one Aventador J.
