Back in January we heard rumors that Lamborghini would bring two new vehicles to the Geneva Motor Show. Once the Lamborghini MLC SUV was ruled out, that left the Aventador Roadster and a surprise for which guesses have ranged from the Gallardo replacement to the production Sesto Elemento to something else.

That something else appears to be the car shown above. Reportedly dubbed Avendador J, it's a minimalist speedster variant of Lamborghini's flagship supercar, and it got an early reveal this weekend at Czech website AutoForum. The car loses its roof entirely, has a tiny windscreen, and reportedly dumps all unnecessary amenities like air conditioning and an audio system. Any additional weight-saving measures Lamborghini has put into effect will be revealed tomorrow, when the car debuts at the Volkswagen Group's preview gala.

There's much speculation online as to whether the Aventador J will be produced an any number. In truth, it doesn't even matter. If Lamborghini builds any, it will sell all of them, immediately, at whatever price it asks.

Now, Lamborghini also released a video teasing the car's Geneva unveiling, which ends with the hashtag #Unica on the screen. That translates to "only" in English, which could suggest that the Aventor J is, in fact, a one-off.

Follow the jump to watch the teaser, and stay tuned here as all the Geneva festivities ramp up starting Monday evening. We'll be on hand to bring you news and photos of the new Lambos as they're revealed.

      My favorite part of this is that my first thought was "that thing could only be better if it shot flames out the back" and then I remembered the Top Gear test of the Aventador and remembered that it does, in fact, shoot flames out the back. Lambo's lunacity is back in full effect. Let the Gallardo be the "usable, reasonable mass market Lambo." The top end should be completely insane like this.

      This car is both awesome and ridiculous. I guess that's what hypercars are supposed to be.

      Wow - that really is visually amazing. Not usually a fan of chopped windshield speedsters, (ie Porsche...) but this is beautiful. Arguably more beautiful than the hardtop. (Though "Joey" is right - if it were my money it'd be a Gallardo 555-2, black please.)

      Wow. This is the first time I'm looked at a Lamborghini and thought, "I want that."

          Why? Because I don't want a Lamborghini? How dare I? What sacrilege! They designed the Countach in the seventies and now every so often they update the design and re-release it under a new name and everyone drools over it. Are they sexy and cool and exclusive and exciting? Yes. Are they mechanical wonders? Yes. But I'd still rather have one of their tractors than anything they've made since the Countach.

          I'm pretty sure that's called brand identity. And no one else is doing it, so why mess with a good thing. What you should be complaining about is lack of a different model so satiate your and only your needs. Sounds like a good business case to me. Go pitch it and let us know how it goes. They do what they do and they do it well. What you're complaining about now is equivalent to asking Apple to stop making devices that are easily distinguished as Apple devices, oh and getting rid of that dumb logo while they're at it. You have every right to dislike any car for any reason. Enjoy. Just know that its not exactly a rational one, which is OK too because Lamborghini's aren't exactly built upon rationale.

          I don't feel like there is much irrational about wanting a company to evolve and push itself instead of resting on it laurels. I never said they aren't good at what they do or a word about their logo. Plenty of companies go through design renaissances without losing their brand identity. Even Apple. They went from bland computer cubes with their Rainbow logo, to chintzy colorful iMacs, to their current streamline and efficient designs. Of course, none of us would be talking about Apple if they hadn't created the iPod, which was something completely different from what they had been making before.

      looks like something Batman's flamboyantly gay cousin would drive. But damn is it gorgeous.

      Gallardo 550-2 is the only worthwhile lambo.

        If RWD and manual is your only qualification of a worthwhile Lamborghini, then yes, you are right.
