Aventador J Unica
The Lamborghini Aventador J is an absolute one-off: a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
It combines the overwhelming performance of the Lamborghini Aventador with the most intense experience of power and dynamics imaginable in an automobile.
The Lamborghini Aventador J is a radically open automobile – exterior and interior meld into each other. The designers and engineers in Sant’Agata Bolognese have not only dispensed entirely with the roof, but also with the front windshield. Drivers must have the right equipment for driving at top speeds higher than 300 km/h.
The unique expertise of Automobili Lamborghini in the field of carbon fiber reinforced polymers is evident not only in the hi-tech monocoque, but also in the research into further innovative solutions. Unlike traditional seats, the Aventador J seats are made of Forged COMPOSITE®, with inserts of flexible carbon fiber fabrics: a result of an innovative Lamborghini patent.
Rare cars in Japan: P250S Lamborghini Urraco 1973
We all know that japanese are one of the most strongest followers of cars and this do not only is refered to JDM world we used to know. Japan has one of the biggest demand of supercars in earth. All we remember that iconic accident featuring some 355’s. But they are also enthusiast of old school european supercars as we gonna see in a series of articles.
The Lamborghini Urraco was a sports car manufactured by Italian automaker Lamborghini in the 1970s. It was introduced at the Turin auto show in 1970 but wasn’t available to buyers until 1973.
The car was a 2+2 coupé with body designed by Marcello Gandini, at the time working for Carrozzeria Bertone. Rather than being another supercar, like the Lamborghini Miura, the Urraco was more affordable, an alternative to the contemporary Ferrari Dino and Maserati Merak.
When production ended in 1979, 791 Urracos had been built. Twenty-one of these were labelled Urraco PIII (P250 Tipo III) for the American market. In order to comply with American regulations, these cars had larger front bumpers and emissions controls, the latter resulting in less horsepower for the American version. The other Urraco versions were the Urraco P200, Urraco P250 and Urraco P300 with 2 litre, 2.5 litre, and 3 litre V-8 respectively*.
