Automobili Lamborghini SpA has unveiled their latest flagship model at 'The Quail, A motorsports gathering' held during the 'Monterey week' in the United States in mid-August ... the Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce Roadster, which is the open top version of the impressive Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce that was introduced at the Geneva Auto Show earlier this year.
Lamborghini limited the production numbers on the Aventador Superveloce at 600 units, and perhaps it came as a surprise, but all 600 units sold out in a matter of months, which might have helped the marketing department at Sant'Agata to give their go-ahead for the production of the Roadster version ... but again in limited numbers ... only 500 SV Roadsters are available for customers at a base price of €357,000 (us $530,075).
The engine for the Aventador LP750-4 SV Roadster is the same as the one used in the Coupé version, the V12 with 6.5 Liter displacement and a power output of 750 hp (552 kW) at 8,400 rpm on all four wheels with a quoted top speed 'over' 350 km/h or 217 Mph ... acceleration from 0 to 100 Km/h takes 2.9 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds 'slower' than the closed Coupé version ... which is probably due to the fact the Roadster adds 50 kg more on the scales at 1575 kg.
For the Superveloce Lamborghini went through some serious wind tunnel testing to create the best possible airflow ... on the SV Roadster the two hard-top panels made from carbon fiber (RTM and Forged Composite) weigh less than 6 kg and are finished in satin black ... however with all those matte carbon fiber parts on the Superveloce you might want to get those roof panels finished in the same matte carbon.
The small window behind the driver and passenger can be lowered so you can really enjoy that thundering V12 engine just inches away from you ... you might even hear the wind rushing over the impressive SV rear wing that is also fitted to the Roadster, the Magneto Rheological suspension with the race inspired pushrod damping system coupled to the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering offers some of the most amazing driving dynamics ever seen on a road car.
With only 500 of these masterpieces being built in total you might want to get your order in quickly ... first deliveries are planned for early 2016 ... well ahead of the next summer season.
