Lamborghini Aventador J: No Roof, No Windshield, No Problem

A car that's missing both a roof and a windshield may sound like the kind of vehicle you can pick up for cheap on Craigslist, not pay exorbitant amounts of cash for.  But that's exactly what you'll get with the Lamborghini Aventador J, the just-revealed convertible version of the Italian marque's flagship supercar.

Rather than just put together a straightforward open-air version, Lambo really went out of their way to bring an innovative streak into their newest street-legal racer.  In fact, the brand is calling it "the most uncompromising open super sports car of its entire history."  And we really can’t object.

In place of a windshield, the Lamborghini Aventador J uses really small wind deflectors in front of the driver and passenger seats to keep things bearable while you drive at high speeds.  It even goes so far as to give up climate control and a navigation system to outfit the car this way, which sound like acceptable-enough things to forego considering the beauty you're trading it for.

Like the hardtop Aventador, the vehicle packs a 6.5-liter V12 that pumps out 700 hp to help the car hit speeds of up to 186 mph.  Notable features include a new carbon fiber material ("Carbonskin"), a periscope-like rear-view mirror, a pair of safety bars behind the seats, a front scoop with tilting winglets, downforce-increasing bumpers, 20-inch aluminum front wheels, 21-inch aluminum rear wheels and a red chrome effect finish.

The good news?  You won't be tempted to buy one.  Yes, even if you win the lottery, rob the US Treasury or discover a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  The Lamborghini Aventador J is a one-off supercar and it's already been sold for a cool 2.1 million Euros.
