We are pleased to present this one-off 2019 Lamborghini Aventador S factory art car. Unveiled at the 2019 Monterey Car Week, this collaboration between Lamborghini and street artist Skyler Grey showcases a pop-art-inspired theme hand-painted at Lamborghini’s workshop in Sant ‘Agata Bolognese, Italy. Likened to pop-art masters including Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Skyler Grey is among the youngest and most prolific painters in the world and was named in Forbes Magazine’s "30 under 30” list of most influential artists. At 21 years old, Grey’s work has been internationally exhibited at high-profile venues including Art Basel and Art Wynwood. This Aventador S is part of the pilot project “Lamborghini Sicura”, which uses Blockchain technology to protect and secure the vehicle as a one-of-a-kind work of art. Now showing just over 500 miles on the odometer, this factory-commissioned Lamborghini Aventador S art car is being offered for auction by its owner out of Puerto Rico.
Finished in Arancio Atlas (0058), Lamborghini presented this Aventador as a blank canvas for Skyler Grey at the new paintwork facility in Italy. In coordination with a team of specialists at Lamborghini, Grey used the main techniques of street art, including airbrushes, spray guns, rollers, and stencils, to convey his typical art style to the exterior of the car. Bold non-symmetrical brushstrokes of yellow, dark orange, and white cover the hood, fenders, doors, mirrors, and engine cover, with interspersed splashes of color, dripped and splattered across the body. Grey then added stylized running bulls along the side, emerging from the Aventador’s side intakes and escaping from a Lamborghini soup can, a reference to Andy Warhol’s famous “32 Campbell's Soup Cans”. Skyler Grey’s signature appears on the bodywork accompanied by a distinctive lightning bolt above his name. The Aventador by itself is truly a work of art; a carbon fiber monocoque chassis sporting wedge-shaped bodywork with a low roofline, scissor doors, and hexagonal air intakes inspired by fighter jets. It rides on 20”/21” center-locking forged Dianthus wheels wrapped in their original Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires. The owner notes that a protective coating has been applied over the exterior, additional images are provided in the photo gallery.
Inside, this Aventador S is upholstered in Nero Ade leather with contrasting Arancio Atlas stitching and accents. The deeply bolstered powered bucket seats feature Arancio Atlas piping and diamond-stitched inserts, as well as embroidered Lamborghini logos in the headrests. Between the seats, one of Skyler Grey’s stylized bulls is embroidered on the rear panel along with spots of color in a paint splatter effect, masterfully stitched by the specialists at Lamborghini’s Ad Personam personalization program. A three-spoke leather and Alcantara steering wheel sits ahead of the liquid crystal TFT screen that displays a center-mounted 7600-RPM tachometer, along with digital gauges for coolant temperature, fuel level, oil pressure, and oil temperature. The second 7” TFT screen displays navigation and multimedia options. Driver amenities include automatic climate control, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay connectivity, navigation, and a rearview camera.
The Aventador S is powered by a mid-mounted 6.5L V12 engine, factory rated at 740 HP and 507 lb.-ft of torque. Power is delivered to all four wheels through a Haldex-based all-wheel-drive system with a rear mechanical self-locking differential and a 7-speed ISR automated manual transmission that allows the Aventador S to reach 60 MPH from a standstill in under 3 seconds, all the way to a claimed top speed of 217 MPH. The Aventador S comes equipped with several advanced performance features including carbon-ceramic brakes, magnetorheological dampers, and active rear-wheel steering. Engine, gearbox, traction, steering, suspension, and stability control settings can be adjusted by the driver, and the new EGO mode allows for a completely personalized driving experience.
This sale will include a certificate of authenticity from Lamborghini and a clean title. A one-of-a-kind work of art and a testament to the eccentric and extraordinary styling that defines Lamborghini as a brand, this Aventador S art car offers a truly special opportunity.
