Super-low production supercars aren’t very easy to obtain in most cases. Manufacturers often sell these cars directly to buyers that they have a relationship with before even unveiling the car itself. That’s what makes this 2020 Lamborghini Aventador LP770-4 SVJ 63 Roadster so special, because anybody with the cash can take it home from the auction.
Let’s break down that name just a little bit. We all know the Aventador already. LP means that the engine is longitudinally positioned, 770 stands for the car’s metric horsepower (759 in American HP, 565 kW), and 4 means that it sends power to all four wheels. The rest of the name is what makes it truly special though.
SVJ stands for Super Veloce Jota, the designation given to the most extreme supercars ever made by Lamborghini. 63 is a nod to the year that Automobili Lamborghini was founded and that makes this one of the special anniversary cars, one of only 63 ever made. It’s quite tastefully appointed too.
The Blu Emera matte exterior with all of its golden accents is safe from road damage thanks to a protection film. Carbon ceramic brakes with black calipers and forged, center-locking wheels adorn each corner. Unique ’63’ badging and embroidery is included too. Considering all of its extra equipment and its super-limited production run, we could easily see someone preferring this over the new Countach LPI 800-4.
We realize that this is an Aventador, which was produced in much larger numbers than the new Countach, but let’s not forget that they both have the same basic underpinnings. And at least the Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster is an original model with its own clear nods to history.
The supercar, which has just 559 miles on its odo, goes over the auction block at Mecum’s Monterey event taking place from August 18-20. It’s one of a handful of incredible cars that will be offered for sale in the same area that weekend. A color-changing McLaren Elva is available as is Paul Walker’s 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS. RM Sotheby’s might take the cake, though, with a one-off example of the legendary McLaren F1.
