Lamborghini Aventador J: Windshieldless, Roofless Car Sells for $2.8 Million
The Lamborghini Aventador J is sure to be the envy of many car enthusiasts, but it may not be the most comfortable ride in the world. The new car, which made its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, lacks some of the basic features of an automobile. Like a roof, or a windshield.
But the Aventador J, which Lamborghini calls “the most uncompromising open super sports car of its entire history,” isn’t exactly aimed at the mass consumer. Auto Week reports that the car was limited to just a one unit product run. And if you were hoping to grab the extremely rare and expensive car, you’re out of luck. The Lamborghini Aventador J has already been sold for $2.8 million.
Lamborghini declined to give the identity of the buyer.
So is it worth the near $3 million price tag? Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of AutomobiliLamborghini, said:
“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. 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 Washington Post reports that the Aventador J has the same 700-orespower, 6.5 liter V-12 engine used in the Aventador coupe. The car lacks a windshield and requires the driver to wear a helmet. Lamborghini did say that the Aventador J can be registered for road use.
