Lamborghini at Monterey Car Week

Aventador SVJ 63
Huracan EVO GT Celebration

Not to be outdone by other car announcements during this year’s Monterey car week, Lamborghini announced not one but two special edition cars. The Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster and the Huracan EVO GT Celebration.

The Aventador SVJ 63 has the familiar Aventador styling with very little to distinguish it from other recent models. However, the Centro Stile design team and Ad Persoman department have collaborated to offer exclusive design expressions to keep buyers excited. The generous use of carbon fiber and matte titanium on the various exterior elements are unique to the SVJ 63 Roadster.

Of course, we can’t forget the SVJ 63 livery which may appeal to the die-hard Lamborghini fan and keep onlookers drooling over the prospects of driving this beast. The interior combines tri-tone Alcantara upholstery in carefully chosen colors with exquisite stitching along with carbon fiber accents that ensure that one won’t soon forget how exclusive the car is.

Under the hood is the same engine as the SVJ coupe; a 6.5 liter V12 which delivers 770bhp at maximum 8,500 rpm and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque at 6750 rpm. That allows it to jump from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 8.8 seconds. Its top speed is a little more than 350km/h (217 mph). With that kind of speed, you need good brakes, and the SVJ 63 delivers that with an enviable braking distance of 100 km/h to 0 in 31 meters.

If you’re wondering about the significance of the number 63, its the total number of this special edition car that will be built and it appears every unit is spoken for.

The Huracan EVO GT Celebration pays tribute to the Huracan GT3 EVO which happens to be a successful endurance race car. It’s no wonder that it’s adorned with a livery and accents that emphasize the race victories it celebrates. The livery has different aspects that tell the story of the successes of the race car it “celebrates” and the racing teams that piloted it to wins at Daytona and Sebring. Buyers can choose to add the Lamborghini Squadra Corse shield to the roof along with the Italian and American flags embedded.

As you may have guessed, the interior comes with Alcantara upholstery with contrasting stitching in the color of the livery. This beautifully compliments the racing seats. Of course, there’s also a very generous amount of carbon fiber accents in the cockpit.

The most interesting detail though is the fact that the GT Celebration is equipped with the same V10 engine used in the race car. One little nugget that’s sure to disappoint some fans is the fact that the vehicle will only be sold in the North American market.
