Geneva 2012: Lamborghini Aventador J


Force of nature

At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Automobili Lamborghini took center stage as they presented their most uncompromising open super sports car in their history with the new Lamborghini Aventador J.

According to Lamborghini, the Aventador J is a radically open automobile. 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 (helmets, for instance) for driving at top speeds higher than 300 km/h. 

The engine is the same as the Aventador LP 700-4: a 6.5 liter V12 mounted amidships with 700 horsepower. Pushrod actuated suspension, permanent four wheel drive and an ISR transmission take care of ensuring the ultimate in driving dynamics.

This car offers a highly exclusive experience, especially since the Aventador J is an absolute one-off: a one-of-a-kind piece of art. 


“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.”
