Monterey Car Week goes on as Lamborghini has taken the wraps off the new Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster.
On Friday, Lamborghini pulled the covers off the Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster during Monterey Car Week. The Roadster combines the droptop glory from the SVJ Roadster with a few personal touches. The car that bowed at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering on Friday is matte titanium with Leirion forged wheels, and special 63 badges. The interior is wrapped in gray and orange synthetic suede with special edition stitching.
The Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster pays tribute to the year Lamborghini was founded, 1963, and the V12-powered beast is offered with the same 6.5-liter V-12 planted amidships that churns out 770 horsepower at 8,500 rpm. The special-edition treatment doesn’t ruin performance: 0-62 mph still happens in 2.9 seconds on the way to a 217-mph top speed. A choice of eight new exterior and interior combinations as well as the must-have unique badging that identifies each car according to its production number.
The exterior styling was actually developed specifically for the Roadster body style with a matte or shiny carbon fiber upper including the roof panel, engine cover, engine air vents, windscreen rim, and wing mirrors. Notice the new matte titanium finish on the forged rims, which also shows the SVJ 63 livery.
Huracán EVO GT Celebration. It pays tribute to the Huracán GT3 EVO which “triumphed at the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring for two consecutive seasons.”
The body can get special touches such as Italian and American flags painted on the roof, and a serialized carbon-fiber number plate near the driver’s door with the car’s position in the line. Only 36 of the cars will be made and all will be delivered to customers next year. Lamborghini didn’t say how many of the Huracan EVO GT Celebration cars were already sold.
The naturally aspirated V10 is actually the same unit used for the racing car.
