Watch the Lamborghini Aventador J Being Built by Hand

The only thing better than an Italian supercar? How about a hand-built Italian supercar.
The Lamborghini Aventador J recently made its show-stopping debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The Aventador J utilizes V12 power along with superlight "Carbonskin" for wicked performance and heart-pounding good looks.

The hand-built Lamborghini Aventador J features a 6.5-liter V12 engine good for 700hp. The engine is mated to an ISR transmission delivering power to all four wheels. The Aventador J showcases Aventador styling, though it is characterized by the absence of a roof, windshield, air conditioning and navigation system. Thanks to these amputations, weight has been further decreased from that of the coupe. The aforementioned, ultra-light "Carbonskin" guarantees that weight is cut even further. Being used for the first time, this unique "skin" is made of woven carbon fibers.
The carbon fibers were soaked with a very special epoxy resin that stabilizes the fiber structure. The one-off Aventador J has already been sold for a pre-tax price of 2.1 million Euros ($2.76 million).
