After bringing back the Countach as a V12 hybrid hypercar at the Monterey Car Week, Lamborghini presents the Aventador S Roadster Korean Special Series.
Lamborghini Seoul and Automobili Lamborghini’s Centro Stile developed the ultra-limited edition supercar as a symbolic gesture uniting Korea and Italy. It’s a special delight for Korean supercar fans as these 2 unique Lamborghinis incorporate elements from South Korea’s national flag and honor its rich culture, history, and architecture.
The Aventador S Roadster Korean Special Series is available in two unique liveries, reflecting particular aspects of the Korean people. The first one is painted in Green Ocno symbolizing “warm Korean sentiment,” while the second is finished in “Blue Emera,” representing “intelligence and wisdom.”
Additionally, the engine compartment features the two trigrams of the national flag— Geon and Gam — but more importantly, a naturally-aspirated V12 delivering 730 hp and 507 lb-ft. The setup is good enough to reach 62 mph from a standstill in just three seconds and a top speed of 217 mph. Not bad, right?
Francesco Scardaoni, Regional Director for Automobili Lamborghini in the Asia Pacific, said that the company is excited to launch this remarkable series to Korean Lamborghini enthusiasts and highlights the importance of the Korean supercar market for them. Indeed, there’s a reason why the company is going this far to create a Korean-inspired ultra-limited edition. South Korea’s exotic car market is currently witnessing a boom, and the Italian manufacturer wants to forge a direct connection with the country and its people, which it expects will pay off in the long run.
Furthermore, these two highly exclusive supercars will join the four Mexican Special Edition Huracan Evo club, which celebrates the four main aspects of the Mexican culture. Can we expect more national-themed limited editions in the future? We sure hope so!
Although the company didn’t disclose the price of its new Aventador S Roadster Korean Special Series, you are free to guess. Only two will ever be made so, if you need to ask, you’re not one of the lucky owners anyway.
