A rather special sight in Spanish Marbella the other week as an ultra rare Lamborghini Aventador J made a brief appearance in the wealthy coastal city. With only two ever produced the likelihood of spotting the Aventador J in the wild is second to none.
It all started with the Aventador Roadster concept car presented at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The roofless and windowless concept car packs the same 700 hp V12 from the regular Aventador controlled through a 7-speed lightweight automatic transmission. To save weight, both airconditioning and a radio were purposely left out setting the car’s astonishing curb weight at just 1,575 kg (3,472 lbs).
Initially the concept car unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show was the only one to be produced until Shaikh Al Yahyaa indicated interest in the car and was given the opportunity to purchase a limited edition Aventador J himself. The original from the show was allegedly sold for $2,800,000 and might very well be the one that was recently spotted in Marbella, Spain.
