Monterey Car Week is awesome.
Bugatti undeniably stole the show at the 2019 Monterey Car Week with the world debut of the 1,600-hp Centodieci, but this wasn't the only new supercar debut at the event. Lamborghini also presented the new limited-edition Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster with a full carbon fiber body and a unique livery as a tribute to the year Lamborghini was founded in 1963. Like the standard Aventador SVJ Roadster, power is provided by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 generating 759 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque, enabling the droptop supercar to rocket from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and top out at 217 mph.
Production will be limited to, you guessed it, 63 units. New photos of the limited-edition roadster have been released, and it looks spectacular in the metal. This wasn't the only model Lamborghini revealed at the event, either.
"We at Lamborghini are future shapers and designers of experiences at the forefront of luxury, technology and design," said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. "There is an undeniable energy this year at Monterey Car Week, especially from our recent sales record, the introduction of the Aventador SVJ Roadster, celebration of recent racing endeavors and unveilings of the brand's newest creative collaborations. Pebble Beach, being the pinnacle of automotive events, is the perfect backdrop to honor such milestones."
Lamborghini also showed off an eye-catching Aventador S art car designed by American artist Skyler Grey and the Huracan EVO GT Celebration, which pays tribute to the Huracan GT3 EVO race car that triumphed at the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring for two consecutive seasons. The design evokes the livery of the GRT Grasser Racing Team, characterized by the combination of Verde Egeria green and Arancio Aten orange. Three unique body colors were created by Lamborghini Ad Personam.
Fans of the iconic Miura were also in for a treat, as a special class dedicated to the mid-engine supercar was displayed at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The highlight was a 1972 Miura P400 SV that won best in its class. It's one of only 150 Miura SVs ever made, was completely restored in 2018 by Lamborghini's Polo Storico department, and is owned by legendary rally driver, Ferrari Formula One team boss, and President of the FIA, Mr. Jean Todt.
