Lambo Aventador S Roadster 50th Anniversary Japan debuts

By CARSIFU | 23 October 2017

TOKYO: Lamborghini has issued a limited edition Aventador S Roadster 50th Anniversary Japan to celebrate the brand's 50th year in the Asian country.

Only five units will be made and are to be sold in Japan.

Each of the five Aventador S Roadsters is a one-off car, with colours and finishes inspired by one of the five natural elements of Japanese culture: water, earth, fire, wind, and sky. The “water” version was presented and displayed during Lamborghini Day here on Oct 20.

The concept for the car was developed by Lamborghini’s Ad Personam Department along with the Centro Stile, a collaboration that led to the idea of developing a unique paint for each model, featuring special shading effects in which, in the case of the “water” version, the blue tends to black. The artisan creation of the paintwork required 170 hours of labour and the contribution of ten specialists. The exterior is completed by the windscreen frame and the hard top, both made of exposed carbon fibre.

The interiors are realised in Nero Ade black leather and Nero Cosmus black Alcantara. Another unique feature of the car is the embroidery on the seats and on the hard top that evokes the Japanese symbol for bamboo (Y). The colour of the stitching matches that of the exterior, with the same gradations and shading: an effect that required 100 hours of labour by six specialists. The interior finish is completed by a hexagonal carbon fibre plate with the Japanese symbol of the car’s elemental namesake.

The participating cars also included the Miura SV restored by Lamborghini Polo Storico that won Best of Show at the “Lamborghini & Design Concours d’Élégance” held in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, on Sept 17.

The jury, composed 13 international judges, evaluated the most representative models of each era, divided into eight classes. The Best of Show prize was awarded to an orange Countach LP 400 from 1976 (car serial number#1120186).

The 400 GT was the first Lamborghini to be imported to Japan.
