A car that’s lacking both a windshield and a roof may seem like the sort of vehicle you can buy for cheap on Craigslist, not pay excessively high amounts of cash for. But that’s what you’ll get with the Lamborghini Aventador J, the just-unveiled convertible version of the Italian marque’s flagship supercar.
Instead of just putting together a simple open-air version, Lambo actually went out of their way to provide an innovative talent into their latest street-legal racer. For that matter, the brand is labelling it “the most uncompromising open super sports car of its entire history.” And we really can’t object.
Like the hardtop Aventador, the car packs a 6.5-liter V12 that pumps out 700 hp to help the vehicle hit speeds of up to 186 mph. Distinctive features include a periscope-like side view mirror, a new carbon fiber material, a pair of safety bars behind the seats, downforce-increasing bumpers, a front scoop with tilting winglets, 20-inch aluminum front wheels, a red chrome effect finish and 21-inch aluminum rear wheels.
Instead of a windshield, the Lamborghini Aventador J uses very small wind deflectors in front of the driver and passenger seats to keep things bearable while you drive at high speeds. It even goes as far as to give up climate control and a navigation system to suit the car this way, which sound like acceptable-enough things to forget about considering the beauty you’re trading it for.
The Lamborghini Aventador J is a one-off supercar and it’s already been sold for a cool 2.1 million Euros.
