Here’s What Lamborghini Has Been Up To These Last Few Months


To be built in extremely limited numbers, the Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster And Huracan EVO GT pay homage to the brand’s history and recent racing dominance

 

  • The Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster is limited to just 63 units.
  • Continues to use the same 6.5-litre NA V12 good for 770PS.
  • Huracan EVO GT Celebration is even rarer at just 36 units, all exclusive to the US.
  • It uses the same naturally aspirated V10 from the Huracan EVO GT3 race car.

Lamborghini in the last couple of months has been onto some mischief. And they presented the end results, the Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster and the Huracan EVO GT Celebration, at the just concluded Monterey Car Week. As their names suggest, both of these extremely limited models are Lamborghini’s ode to its founding year and recent racing victories.

As you might have guessed, the Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster is the convertible version of the Aventador SVJ 63, which is Lamborghini’s way of showing respect to the year it was founded: 1963. The number ‘63’ also represents the production number of what appears to be one of the maddest modern day bulls out of Sant'Agata. 

The roadster gets some unique styling traits and eight exclusive shades. Each of the eight combinations comprises of an exotic exterior and interior along with the slew of ‘63’ badges and decals declaring its rarity. If you happen to geek out on sexy sounding Italian shades, the pictures you see here are of the SVJ 63 Roadster finished in a matte grey Grigio Acheso, with contrast orange Arancio Dac ‘SVJ’ and ‘63’ logos.

The Roadster also does justice to ‘Super Veloce Jota’, the very same suffix that adorns the fastest production car around the ring, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ coupe. The roadster comes armed with the same naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 putting out 770PS and 720Nm of torque. 100kmph from standstill comes up in 2.9 seconds (0.1 second slower than the coupe) while it’ll exceed 350kmph provided you have the cojones and the tarmac. 

The Huracan Evo GT Celebration, meanwhile, is Lamborghini celebrating its modern day accomplishments: It won the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2018 and 2019 with the Huracán GT3 EVO race car.

 

Limited to just 36 units (36 being the sum of the two endurance races, collectively known as the 36 Hours of Florida), the Huracan EVO GT Celebration is finished in an iconic Verde Egeria green and Arancio Aten orange livery similar to the Grasser Racing Team Huracan GT3 EVO which took the win. Apart from this, three more body colors have been created by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam customisation wing.

The cabin also features alcantara with contrast stitching that matches the livery. All this seems cool until you find out that the Huracan EVO GT Celebration also uses the exact same NA V10 engine from the race car. Now, that’s exactly how we would like it, but unfortunately the car is only available for the North American market. Not that we can afford it, but still why?! Thankfully, money no object, you can have the poster-worthy Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster with the V12. Erm… sorry for getting your hopes up high again, apparently all of the 63 units have already been sold to collectors across the globe. 

On a brighter note, if you still want a raging bull, the Urus is now available in new colours and was showcased in a new orange shade called Arancio Borealis. Also note that this is not limited or sold out, yet. So keep hustling.
