This was the prequel to the Roadster, unveiled just six months after the first Aventador Coupe was unveiled. The car featured the same 700 horsepower engine as the standard Aventador, but Lambo opted to leave out air conditioning and a radio in order to save weight. Since there was only one J in existence, it’s no surprise that it sold at a mind-blowing figure of $2.8 million. Later Sheikh Al Yahyaa requested a J and Lambo did build one for him, at an undisclosed price.
Again, the same principle as the first roadster. Chop the roof off, throw in carbon fiber bits and you have yourself a real winner. The roadster is 0.3 seconds slower to 60 mph compared to the coupe, but when you have something which looks like it does, would you even honestly care?
The Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance is just around the corner and one of the highlights of the show will be the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. The automaker has released a teaser image of the Superveloce Jota on their Instagram page giving us an exclusive insight of the phenomenal electric supercar’s exterior.
The Lamborghini Superveloce Jota is set to replace the Aventador and will supposedly be the last Lambo powered by the naturally-aspirated V12 engine. It will carry a robust 6.5-liter V12 engine that will generate 760 horsepower and 531 lb.-ft of torque. The powertrain has been reworked and includes new titanium intake valves and ducts as well as an enhanced exhaust system with reduced back pressure. As a result, the supercar will offer an extra 20 horsepower and 22 more lb.-ft torque compared to the regular Aventador SV. It will still have the single-clutch transmission system.
The teaser image shows some interesting aerodynamic updates on the SV Jota such as the extractor vents and the hollow rear spoiler. Reports indicate that the SV Jota features the 2nd generation of the active aerodynamic system (ALA 2.0) for improved downforce. Moreover, it is noticeable from the teaser shots that the Lamborghini SV Jota will incorporate a number of carbon fiber elements to keep the overall weight of the supercar low. It is expected to weigh approximately 3,362 pounds (1,525 kilograms) which is almost the same as the Aventador Superveloce.
Considering the automaker’s electrification plan, experts believe that this might be the last non-hybrid Lamborghini as all the future models will boast an electric or hybrid powertrain.
We are expecting Lamborghini to unveil official information about the Superveloce Jota at the Pebble Beach event which will take place on August 26, 2018.
The Italian automaker Ferrari has long been the center of attention for the automotive world. They have produced spectacular cars since their inception and they don’t intend to stop now. Ferrari plans to introduce some new models for the year 2019 and the company hopes to improve on older models. The exciting upcoming projects include the 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista Aperta, 2019 Ferrari Portofino and probably a Ferrari 812 Monza. While the Portofino has been revealed, enthusiasts would have to wait for news on the Monza and the Aperta.
The Ferrari 2019 Pista Aperta is expected to make its appearance at an upcoming event at Pebble Beach, California by the end of August. There is not a lot of difference between the 488 Pista and the 488 Pista Aperta. The Aperta version is basically a convertible vehicle, which runs on a 3.9-litre V8 engine that makes 530 kW horsepower and 770Nm of torque thanks to a 90 kg reduction in curb weight. Reports suggest that the Aperta will have a limited run but the number of units that will be made is yet unknown. Perhaps the open-top car will get 700 examples.
Perhaps the 812 Monza will be the center of attention for a number of Ferrari enthusiasts and brand loyalists. The company hopes to debut the car in September and sell it to the lucky customers who will contend for the 200 cars. Only Ferrari’s top customers have been invited to the launch event that will be held at Maranello. The design of the Monza is very unique in that it will not have a windscreen or a roof (not the perfect choice for buyers who live in places where it rains a lot). Rumors are that the 812 Monza will take inspiration from the 1957 250 Testa Rossa, Ferrari’s popular racecar.
Although two of these cars are yet to show their faces, the third, called the Ferrari Portofino, has already made its way to world roads. The Portofino is a car which is built for the kill. With its 3.9-liter V8 engine, the car makes 591 hp and rushes from 0 to 62 mph in approximately 3.5 seconds going on to a top speed of 200 mph. To top that, the car is a convertible, so you can enjoy the fruits of driving roofless on a nice sunny day.
It’s no wonder whatever Ferrari produces instantly becomes a hit and with these cars we expect nothing else.
The Aventador S is an updated and facelifted Aventador which was unveiled back in 2016. The exterior was updated with smoother and sleeker lines and Lambo also topped up the 6.5-liter V12 with an extra 40 horsepower over the pre-facelift Aventador, raising the total to 740 hp. Performance figures remain the same however, since the car is at the edge of the traction limit anyway. On top of that the S received four wheel steering, permanent four-wheel drive and better suspension. Carbon ceramic brakes were also fitted as standard, and the LDVA was given four selectable modes: Sport, Strada, Corsa and Ego.

We’re living in the golden era of motoring. Sure, internal-combustion engines are on their way out, but they’re going out with a bang. Currently, the automotive spectrum of cars available is wider than ever. With that being said, here are our favorites you can look out for in 2019
I’ll go ahead and round this list off with a car which we know very little about. There have been speculations of a new mid-engined supercar from Porsche for years now, but we’ve only recently gotten a whiff of some hint details about it. It will sit above the 911s of the world but below the 918 supercar, slotting somewhere in the middle. Some sources suspect it will utilize a flat-eight, but that seems unlikely since they’ll have to develop a new engine. It’ll probably utilize a turbocharged flat-six from the GT2 RS and some sort of electric assistance, but the hefty price tag will reflect all that performance on tap too.
The Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster In 2013 Lambo announced the Aventador Roadster, which got even more attention than the standard Coupe iteration, if that was at all possible. It retained the “standard” Aventador V12 engine, which meant it could sprint to 62 mph in 3 seconds and go on to 217 mph. Thanks to a unique carbon-fiber removable roof the roadster manages to only carry an additional 50 kilograms when compared to the coupe.
