Lamborghini recently introduced the Aventador S Roadster just over a month ago at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. And already, the V12 powered convertible is going to receive a special edition treatment. The 400 GT model was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the raging bulls, and it will only be limited to five cars. Each one of the Japan edition models will be one-offs since the Ad Personam department and the Cento Stile both gave them unique looks that take inspiration from the five natural elements of Japanese culture: earth, wind, fire, water and sky.
The one you can see in the photos, from its official unveiling in Japan, is the “water” edition. On the same day, the Italian marque also came up with the second edition of the Lamborghini Day Concours d’Elegance Tokyo. In this event, Lamborghini displayed a total of 50 cars. A few of the notable models included here are the gorgeous Miura, the Diablo and Countach. Alongside these were vehicles like the restored Miura SV and a 1976 Countach LP. And guess who won the “Best of Show” award? Well, it was the Countach LP. During the event, the automaker also presented scale models of the other four cars based on the remaining elements that will soon be produced.
Let us not veer away from talking about the gorgeous Aventador S Roadster. The exterior livery was finished by a team of ten specialists by around 170 hours. The paint turns out with a nice finish that contrasts with the exposed carbon fiber that is used for the hardtop and the windscreen frame. There is also a ‘50 Japan’ badge near the vehicle’s rear fender.
To give the interior a unique feel, the Aventador S Roadster was given a Nero Ade black leather with Nero Cosmus black Alcantara surfaces. And to finish all the stitching needed to cover the interior of this car, it took six people 100 hours. What makes it so special is that it even matches the body with the same gradations and shading. The seats also get unique embroidery that evokes the Japanese symbol for bamboo. Lastly, each one of the five models features a hexagonal carbon fiber plate adorned with the Japanese symbol of each element, and for this one, it is water.
Believe it or not, Japan is actually the automaker’s second most important market, and that is why they decided to do an exclusive special edition Aventador S Roadster for Japan only. Having said that, the Italian automaker based in Sant’Agata Bolognese has high hopes that their “Super SUV”, or the Urus, will further boost their presence in Japan on December 4 when it makes its debut. The SUV is scheduled to go on sale next year.
