Lamborghini made the Aventador J in just 6 weeks. i.e. from a blank sheet to a road legal model. That's freaking amazing.

Lambo designer Filippo Perini says: "It was the 14th of January that Mr Winkelmann asked us to do something for Geneva," says Perini. "A blank sheet. Do what you want. I drew up this car in a weekend..."

Read a part of that story here Lambo Aventador J: the real story - BBC Top Gear

It will be quite a ride considering the Aventador J doesn't have AC.

Well in the pictures there's a AC button and also a "AUTO" button on the center console. I wonder whats the purpose on having a AC if at all it has one that's functional unless its revolutionary in some way. I makes sense if there's a heated seat or a heated air scarf around your neck like in Mercedes.

I changed my desktop background to "J" removing my baby photos! I feel guilty but cant help it

The mods should really make an exception to the 'only 2 emoticons per post' rule for this thread. I mean just LOOK AT IT!!!!
No really, just look at it !!
Just a few months ago i said the Aventador is by far my favorite car & looks couldn't possibly get any better & what do they do ???
They made it a priority to make me eat my words & they manufactured something superlatively ballistic and surely not meant for planet earth...in 6 weeks flat ! Gulp !
Automobili Lamborghini. RESPECT !

the 'J' is made / conceptualize / executed merely in 6 weeks. From scratch to execution.

This is made for a particular discerning buyer, who wanted an exclusive Lambo.

This car is homologated in Italy, road legal.

As per the CEO the inspiration comes from the Jota.

cheers,
ac

Absolutely drool worthy material. I am still slurping- its that delicious!! However, I had one question, what will the a/c vents and ACC do in this car? Isn't it an open top and not a convertible?

just noticed that VIPER_SRT has also made the same observation....we petrolheads think stupidly same, don't we?...and we are proud of that

Here is something unusual! The Aventador J and a Reventon Roadster both spotted together in Spain! What are the odds of seeing not one but both of these cars together. The cars share space in a garage with a Veyron and a ONE-77. Damn lucky fellow!

This car looks freaking crazy! Such a beautiful design and amazing road presence!!! By God, Lamborghinis do have the best designers in the world.

But such a high profiled car, and no steering mounted controls?

Its a one off only built for some rich Lamborghini aficionado. If it rains...then well it rains and the owner enjoys the wind, rain and the sound of that exhaust!
You can read more details in the first post of this thread.

Thumbs up Re: Lamborghini Unica/Aventador J - Leaked ahead of Geneva Unveil?

Though I'm a hardcore Ferrari fan, I have to admit that Lamborghini has got me picking up my lower jaw from the floor!!! This has to be one of the most extreme, the most desirable and the most exclusive vehicles to hit the roads - ever!! The fact that they pulled it off in a matter of weeks makes it even more special.

Now that is a totally amazing collection . He must be employing an army just to keep these babies safe and sound. Have to appreciate the guy's taste though - he's got arguably the most exotic ones of the hyper-car breed!!

I've never been a fan of Veyron's looks but always thought that it would never look out of place in anyone's garage. But in this garage it can be best described as "the ugly duckling"
