A fully functional one-of-a-kind piece-of-art on wheels, the Lamborghini Aventador J, just announced this month in the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, is a radically open automobile – exterior and interior meld into each other. Resembling a a concept of a 2 seaters motorcycle, the designers and engineers in Sant’Agata Bolognese have not only dispensed entirely with the roof, but also with the front windshield. This requires that drivers of the Aventador J must have the right equipment for driving at top speeds higher than 300 Km/h.
Powered by the same 700-hp 6.5-liter 12-cylinder as the standard Aventador, the all-wheel-drive J is capable of speeds over 300 kph (186 mph), meaning the driver and passenger had better have their helmets at the ready.
Here’s part of the press release:
At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Automobili Lamborghini is presenting the most uncompromising open super sports car of its entire history. The Lamborghini Aventador J is a force of nature on wheels – supremely powerful and supremely open.
