It’s definitely not the sort of car you’d want to take you back into downtown Geneva after the auto show winds up for the day but for a run through the Swiss countryside there’d likely be few things that could beat the Lamborghini Aventador J making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show today.
The 700-horsepower, one-off “comes from a different time,” suggested Stephan Winkelmann, the CEO of the Italian automaker, “a time when cars were lighter, and naked.”
We’re not sure about the naked part but you’re definitely exposed to the elements behind the wheel of the 700-pound roadster, which draws power from a 6.5-liter V-12 that pumps out power through a permanent four-by-four system.
Priced at $2.1 million – before the unnamed buyer coughs up the additional VAT tax – the Aventador J was meant to underscore “one of the missions of Lamborghini,” suggested Winkelmann, which “is to fulfill dreams. And as long as we do cars like this, our brand as a bright future.”
