Japanese car culture expert, Steve Feldman put the limited edition Lamborghini Aventador Roadster through its paces during an epic night drive in Tokyo.
The American native was given the chance to document the car run for his YouTube channel where he goes by the moniker, Steve POV.
A common feature among sports cars in Japan, the exclusive Aventador was given an extreme makeover in the shape of custom LED lights and a holographic vinyl wrap.
Steve said: “The car has LED lights everywhere possible, along with more strobe lights than a 1970’s disco.
“This is definitely the most expressive Lamborghini in Japan, and possibly the world.”
Released in 2013 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini, only 100 anniversary Aventador Roadster models were built.
The rare model boasts a bevy of upgrades which include increased engine power and aerodynamics.
With a jaw dropping 710 bhp, the anniversary Aventador can do 0 - 60 in 2.9 seconds and features an enlarged diffuser with expansive meshwork that improves engine ventilation.
The owner of the Lambo Steve was lucky enough to drive had then invested a small fortune into giving it a spectacular sci-fi feel.
Steve said: “There is over $20,000 in custom lights and another $10,000 plus in holographic vinyl wrap.”
Considered a cardinal sin to many Lamborghini lovers around the world, the addition of wacky vinyl wraps and LED lights is unique to car owners in the far east, particularly in Japan where they pride themselves on outrageous custom designs.
Steve explained: “Many of these Japanese guys don’t just want to drive ‘another’ Lambo or Ferrari, they want to stand out, they want to be different.
“The Japanese like LED lights and futuristic looking things, so this group of guys use the lights to create crazy UFO effects on the most expensive cars in the world.”
“They don’t give a damn what people think about it, and just do what they feel like.”
