Typical. You spend ages waiting for a new Lamborghini, and...well, you know the rest. Here are two brand-new special edition Lambos: the Aventador SVJ 63, and the Huracan Evo GT.
Let’s talk Aventador SVJ first, because...V12. Only 63 are being built—hence the moniker—and we can confirm that all 63 have already been accounted for. So, as moot points go, this is a big, roofless one. In any case, the car is said to commemorate Lamborghini’s birth as a company back in 1963.
What do you get in a car that represents something so seismic? Erm, carbon-fiber bits. The 63 owners can specify matte or shiny carbon fiber across the roof, the engine cover, the engine air vents, the windshield rim, and the wing mirrors. There’s matte titanium on the forged rims, and there’s the obligatory ‘63’ plastered across the sides.
Inside there’s more carbon fiber, a badge, tri-tone alcantara, and fancy cross-stitching. No increase in power, but it’s full SV spec, so you’ll not want for power. The 6.5-liter V12 kicks out 770hp, 719Nm, and the ability to hit 100kph from rest in 2.9sec. Top speed? More than 350kph.
Next up, the Huracan Evo GT. This one’s a marker for Lambo’s success at the 24 Hours of Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring, where the Huracan GT3 Evo took wins. So, you get a green and orange livery, though there is the option of optioning other colors via Lamborghini’s Ad Personam service.
You also get 20-inch single-nut wheels because race car, the option of adding Lambo’s Squadra Corse shield to the design, alcantara on the inside...and the same V10 used for the racing car. This one is restricted to North America, and Lambo will start rolling them out early next year.
