A new matt titanium finish features on the Leirion forged rims and the car carries the SVJ 63 livery, as well as a ‘1 of 63’ numbered plate.

A badge on the steering wheel endorses the car as one of a limited edition, as does a ‘63’ logo on the rear wall in Alcantara and CarbonSkin.

The car is shown on the concept lawn in Pebble Beach in a matt grey Grigio Acheso, set off by the dominance of the visible carbon fibre exterior elements.

Details in orange Arancio Dac include SVJ and ‘63’ logos, with the matt titanium rims featuring an Arancio central locking plate.

Inside, it's tri-tone Alcantara upholstery in Grigio Octans (grey), Grigio Cronus (grey) and Arancio Dryope (orange) which are combined with carbon fibre and CarbonSkin.

The carbon fibre sports seats are finished with white Q-Citura cross stitching while the ‘63’ logo behind the seats in carbon fibre and lasered Alcantara reminds the occupants of the exclusivity of this SVJ Roadster.

While sporting the ‘Super Veloce’ for superfast and ‘Jota’ suffix signifying the car’s performance and track prowess, its coupé stablemate took the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record.

With an output of 770PS at 8,500rpm and 720Nm of torque at 6,750rpm on tap, accelerating from 0 to 100kph takes 2.9 seconds (100 to 0kph requires 31m to stop) thanks to a weight-to-power ratio of 2.05kg per horsepower, before reaching a top speed of 350kph.

The Aventador SVJ Roadster’s 63 units are already sold to collectors worldwide, with delivery from 2020 onwards.

As for the Huracán EVO GT Celebration, the design evokes the livery of the GRT Grasser Racing Team, which along with Paul Miller Racing brought Lamborghini the four victories, characterized by the combination of Verde Egeria green and Arancio Aten orange.

The three colours have been created by Lamborghini Ad Personam in collaboration with the Centro Stile, with which three other colours can be combined for the livery, for a total of nine combinations.

The car’s racing look is underscored by both the hexagons on the doors and front hood that frame the number “11”, inspired by the number plates for racing cars, and by the 20-inch single-nut wheels that can be combined with coloured brake callipers.
