August is the month for petrolheads and if you are one (petrolhead) who absolutely digs Lamborghini, there are two new cars you need to know about today. The first is the Lamborghini Limited Edition Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster and the second is the Lamborghini Huracán EVO GT Celebration.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster comes a year after the revealing of the SVJ 63 coupé last August and it so named to commemorate the company’s found in 1963. 63, incidentally, is also the number of units this limited edition exotic ride will be produced – as with the coupé variety.
Mind you, though, the Lamborghini did not just slapped a 63 sticker on it; the Centro Stile design team and Ad Personam department came together to scour through the virtually limitless color and trim options from the Lamborghini’s personalization program to create eight new design expressions exclusively for the Roadster.
Key details of the Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster as follow:
⁃ Matte or shiny carbon fiber on roof, engine cover, engine air vents, windscreen rim and wing mirrors
⁃ New matte titanium finish on Leirion forged wheels
⁃ SVJ 63 livery
⁃ ‘1 of 63’ numbered plate
⁃ Three color schemes in Alcantara
⁃ Carbon fiber elements
⁃ Lamborghini’s patented lightweight CarbonSkin
⁃ Special badge on steering wheel
⁃ ’63’ logo on the rear wall in Alcantara and CarbonSkin
As far as performance goes, there’s no need to question. However, if you really want to know, the Roadster’s V12 MPI engine puts out 770 HP and 720 Nm of torque which, through a a 7-speed Independent Shifting Rods gearbox and all-wheel drive, enables the SVJ 63 Roadster to rocket to 100 km/h (62 mph) from standstill in 2.9 seconds and taking just 8.8 seconds to reach 200 km/h (124 mph) before finally topping out at 350 km/h (217 mph). As of now, all 63 units have been sold to collectors worldwide. Delivery is expected happen from 2020 onward.
As for Lamborghini Huracán EVO GT Celebration, it is so named because, it is a celebration of the American victories at the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. Like the Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster, it is also of limited production. Only 36 units are being offered. 36 is so chosen as it is the sum time of the two famous endurance races in North America, otherwise known as the “36 Hours of Florida.”
The accompanying Verde Egeria Green and Arancio Aten orange livery is inspired by the GRT Grasser Racing Team. Again both Centro Stile design team and Ad Personam had their hands in conceiving three colors for the Celebration which can be combined with the livery for a total of nine possible combinations.
Other highlights of the Huracán EVO GT Celebration include:
• Graphic on doors and front hood of a hexagon framing the number ’11’
• 20-inch single-nut wheels can be combined with colored brake calipers
• Side members decorated with identification plates “Daytona 24” and “Sebring 12”
• Carbon fiber plate with inscription “1 of 36” on driver’s side B-pillar
• Interior upholstery in Alcantara with contrasting stitching in same color as the livery
• Hexagonal plate with shield, flags and laurel between the all-new racing seats
• Lamborghini Squadra Corse shield on roof, framed by Italian and U.S. flags (on request)
• Laurel wreaths on rear fender (on request)
Lamborghini Huracán EVO GT Celebration is powered by the aspirated V10 motor used in the racing car and it is available only to the North American market, with first deliveries to happen early 2020. You can learn more about the Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster and the Huracán EVO GT Celebration HERE.
