One of a Kind Expensive Toy
If there has been one car at the Geneva Auto Show that has repeatedly turned heads, it has been the Lamborghini Aventador J.
The Aventador J looks like one of the flashy concept cars that companies produce just to get eyeballs to their display so they can show off their actual production models. However, this is not a concept car; this Lamborghini is fully functional…and it is already sold.
Lamborghini has said that this is currently the only Aventador J. There are no prototypes, no extras made for the Lamborghini Museum or future car shows. After the Geneva Auto Show, this street legal instrument of raw power will be heading to an unnamed buyer, who reportedly paid 2.1 million euros ($2.75 million). However, according to the New York Times, Lamborghini is keeping open the possibility of building other J models.
The Aventador J has a 6.5 liter, 700 horsepower, V12 engine. The transmission is an ISR (independent shifting rod) and this Lamborghini is all-wheel drive.
The ultra sleek design of the two-seat roadster left a couple of things out…like a roof, windshield, climate control or infotainment center. This car was designed for the driving experience, not for being comfortable while creeping through downtown traffic.
With no roof or windshield, just two small wind deflectors, the Aventador J is supposed to have the feel of riding a superbike. To take this thing up to its top speeds of around 186 mph, you will indeed need superbike apparel. No word on if that $2.75 million paid for a helmet and leather riding suit.
