Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster Is The Ultimate Drop-Top Lamborghini
The first series-produced, open-top Lamborghini to bear the name Superveloce is here
We’re talking about the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster, the convertible variant of the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce.
The Aventador SV Roadster uses the same powertrain as the coupe, a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 that delivers 750 PS (740 hp) at 8,400 rpm and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes just 2.9 seconds, while maximum speed exceeds 350 km/h (217 mph).
With a dry weight of 1,575 kg (3,472 lbs), the Aventador SV Roadster is 50 kg (110 lbs) lighter compared to the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, but 50 kg heavier than the Aventador SV coupe. Still, the power-to-weight ratio is impressive at 2,1 kg/hp (4,6 lb/hp). Because of the added weight, the Aventador SV Roadster is 0.1 seconds slower from 0 to 100 km/h than the Aventador SV Coupe – however, chances are no owner will notice that.
The V12 engine is paired with a 7-speed ISR transmission which sends power to all four wheels via a Haldex Generation IV 4WD system. As with the Aventador SV coupe, the Roadster features the adaptive Magneto Rheological Suspension, pushrod damping system and Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS).
Just like the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, the SV Roadster comes with a two-piece hardtop made from carbon fiber. Thanks to technologies such as RTM and Forged Composite, the two roof parts each weigh less than 6 kg (13.2 lbs) and can be stowed easily in the luggage compartment.
Lamborghini will only build 500 Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadsters, with deliveries scheduled to begin in early 2016. Prices start from €357,000 in Italy (excluding VAT) and $530,075 in the United States.
