Since its founding in 1963, Lamborghini has built some of Italy’s most iconic sports cars, including the Miura, Countach, Murcielago and Aventador. Lamborghinis are always in great demand, so most models are mass-produced.
However, Lamborghini also produces limited edition special edition models to celebrate important milestones or to target high-end buyers looking for exclusivity.
1. Sesto ElementoSesto
The Elemento is a limited-edition high-performance car introduced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Sesto Elemento means “sixth element” in Italian, referring to the atomic number of carbon. The entire body, transmission shaft, chassis and suspension are all made of carbon fiber, helping to reduce the vehicle’s weight to the maximum.
Sesto Elemento uses a 5.2-liter V10 engine borrowed from the Gallardo Superleggera that produces 562 horsepower. This is paired with Lamborghini’s “e-gear” six-speed automatic transmission system. Only 20 units of the Sesto Elemento were produced.
2. Aventador J
Less than a year after introducing the Aventador, Lamborghini launched the first special edition called the Aventador J. However, the Aventador J doesn’t have a radio or air conditioning to reduce weight.
The special Aventador J introduced at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show was the only one produced and subsequently sold for a whopping $2.8 million.
Unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Centenario is another great special edition version of the Aventador. The Centenario was built to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday, as well as showcase some of the technologies Lamborghini is developing.
The Centenario is based on the Aventador SV and uses a modified version of the engine, producing 759 hp. A total of 40 Centenarios were produced. All are sold to discerning customers.
4. Murcielago LP640 Versace Edition
In 2006, Lamborghini and Italian luxury fashion brand Versace collaborated to build a special model based on the Murcielago LP640. The result was the Murcielago Versace Edition debuted at the 2006 Paris Motor Show.
The Versace Edition uses the same engine as the standard Murcielago, but features a stunning custom interior designed by Versace’s talented stylists. Each also comes with a custom Versace bag, driving shoes, and gloves.
5. Aventador Miura
The Miura is undoubtedly one of the greatest Italian sports cars ever, as it is considered Lamborghini’s first supercar. Its sheer beauty and superb power and driving dynamics make it an icon.
So, to celebrate 50 years since the debut of Miura, Lamborghini introduced the Aventador Miura Homage.
The Aventador Miura features two-tone paint, custom wheels and carbon fiber accents. There are only 50 Aventador Miuras produced in the world.
The Reventon is a fantastic special edition introduced by Lambo in 2007. The Reventon is based on the Murcielago LP640 but features an all-new carbon fiber exterior with styling details inspired by “the fastest planes”.
At the heart of the Reventon is the same 6.5-liter V12 engine as the Murcielago LP640, but upgraded to produce 641 horsepower. Only 20 Reventon coupes were produced in 2007, followed by 15 roadsters in 2009.
