We live in a virtual world, and Lamborghini is celebrating this new reality with a very rare special edition with a name as weird as the one Elon Musk assigned to his kid on Twitter. Limited to ten customers who personalize their car virtually, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Xago Edition is easier to pronounce and features a hexagon-heavy design theme inside and out.
A fading hexagonal motif joins the fading hexagonal name (“Xago” is just, well, the middle part of the word “hexagon”) and is splashed prominently across the sides of the Aventador, for starters. Why hexagons? Lamborghini apparently took inspiration from “the hexagon cloud shapes at the North Pole on the planet Saturn and the strength of the hexagon in nature.” This “hexagonita” pattern complements a contrast color livery uniquely specified by the customer. Gloss black wheels finish off the exterior design.
Inside, the Xago Edition gets hexagon-themed seats and contrast color accents matching the exterior. A plaque denotes the production order of each car in the limited production series.
Helpful given the current state of world affairs, Lamborghini has created a new virtual customization studio allowing buyers to personalize their car without traveling to Italy or dealing with anyone in-person. After a virtual consultation, Lamborghini sends the buyer a full proposal, including renderings and material samples.
The Xago Edition is powered by Lambo’s familiar naturally aspirated V-12 engine making 760 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque. We’re pretty sure that twelve-cylinder engine has a dozen round pistons beating away, not twelve hexagonal cylinders, by the way. Lamborghini also hasn’t divulged how much the Xago Edition models will cost, but we can safely expect it to cost a pretty penny. As the most expensive vehicle in Lamborghini’s regular production stable, the SVJ Roadster starts at $577,661, and it’s easy to spend tens of thousands more when you add options or hexagons.
