It’s true. Only one Lamborghini Aventador J was made, and by the end of day one at the Geneva Motor Show, the highest bidder had already snagged it. Whether the 700hp 6.5l V12 snarling brute will cruise down the streets of Monte Carlo or remain locked away with the fine china, only time will tell.
There is a way you can see an Aventador Roadster everyday though. Just bear in mind that it’ll be only 12-inches in length and a two-door supercar in topless drag before bragging to the neighbours. Shall we begin…?
Take a standard 1/18-scale diecast model of the original Aventador, and remove the various Italian fripperies until you hit the chassis. Once you’ve measured here, here and there, cut the roof off.
You’ll probably need a good sit down after this.
Once you’ve worked up the courage to continue, apply your most powerful paint stripper to remove all trace of the original Lamborghini colour scheme – cradle your knees and rock slowly back and forth if you feel this is necessary – before re-painting with a balanced metallic red to the shell.
The interior is where things get a bit tricky. Try mixing vibrant red and matt black on the seats and instrument panels to get that authentic ‘Lambo look’. This should take no more than a couple of days, an inhumanly steady hand and more patience than God.
By now most of your hair will have been ripped out with frustration, but make sure you’ve got enough willpower left to finish off your design with miniature drilled pedals, seatbelts, a hand-drawn decal for the dashboard cluster, instrument panel and ‘lights’, and a customized number plate. Be sure not to forget those hand-painted doorsill monikers too.
What you’re now left with is a special edition diecast Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. The bad news is that LAMBOdiecast already have a copyright on it, so be sure to undo your work immediately >>>
