Lamborghini Debuts Limited-Edition SVJ 63 Roadster in Monterey
The Lamborghini SVJ 63 Roadster made its global debut in Monterey this week, but it is only on display for posterity's sake, as the car has long sold out before then. Limited to a production run of just 63 examples, the car is a commemorative edition designed to celebrate the Italian carmaker's founding in 1963.
The car is distinguished by 'SVJ' and '63' graphics, matte titanium center lock wheels, and three interior themes consisting of Alcantara, CarbonSkin, and Lamborghini SVJ's usual materials. The steering wheel badging mirrors the '63' logo inscribed on the back wall using lasered Alcantara and CarbonSkin.
The SVJ 63 Roadster is just one of the offerings in the Lamborghini Lounge Monterey, its villa outpost for the Monterey Car Week. Other special unveilings include the Aventador S art car designed by 19-year-old artist Skyler Grey. The pop interpretation is also the first to be certified via blockchain technology. The car has already been sold to a collector.
Two more surprises came by way of the Huracan EVO GT Celebration and the Urus SUV. The former is meant to celebrate Lamborghini's back-to-back win in the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring for two years in a row. The car will be limited to just 36 units, representing the combined race durations in hours.
The Urus went on display because Lamborghini plans to expand the SUV's color palette for 2020. The one on display at Monterey possesses an Arancio Borealis color scheme, which the brand describes as "a four-layer paint emphasizing the depth of the color."
