Lamborghini Aventadors Final Curtain Call Is the SVJ63 Roadster

  • The debut of this SVJ63 roadster means there will be 63 more Aventador roadsters gracing the world's garages, all of which are already spoken for.
  • Custom color schemes are unique to this model, including the ability to paint the slats of the engine cover and diffuser.
  • Lamborghini's 759-hp V-12 remains in the same frenzied, highly intimidating tune as the regular SVJ.

    If there's one thing to remember before buying a Lamborghini Aventador, it's the V-12 engine's extreme thirst for oxygen that will, like the tiger sharks this car resembles, leave you unable to remain still. Mercifully—as this writer can confirm firsthand—the new Aventador SVJ solves the cooling challenge with air intakes that actually do their job. And the SVJ roadster is cooler, literally, like this gray special edition that made its debut last weekend in Monterey.

    The SVJ is the Aventador's curtain call, and the 63 roadster is the SVJ's last stand before Lamborghini replaces the whole car with another mid-engined model with nearly 800 horsepower and doors that open the correct way. As with the coupe that launched during last year's Pebble Beach festivities, there are only 63 numbered examples allocated for sale (the "63" has nothing to do with displacement but with the automaker's founding date, 1963). All 63 have already been sold, according to Lamborghini.

    The automaker has produced thousands of Aventador models since the model's launch in 2011, so the order books are most certainly open on others. Lamborghini is producing both 63-series cars in addition to the coupe's 900-car run and the roadster's 800. Since an SVJ coupe starts at $526,854, including a $5400 gas-guzzler tax, you can predict where the 63 roadster is headed, pricewise.

    The Pebble Beach example's matte gray against black carbon and red-orange scheme is an inspiring start (and the SVJ's colored seat accents and floor patterns glow under UV light). Lambo's Ad Personam customization options include eight color combinations that are exclusive to this model, including painted highlights for the engine cover's slats, SVJ logos on the engine cover's outer flanks instead of on the rear fenders, and more color tracing the SVJ's chin spoiler, side sills, diffuser, and Superman-style wing that also, like the 759-hp V-12, gulps and traps air for improved downforce through a central inlet.

    Top speed remains something in excess of 217 mph. With or without the number 63 on the hood and doors, the Aventador remains one of the hottest supercars of the modern era. With the SVJ's aero improvements, we really appreciate that it's not actually the hottest.
