On occasion of the Monterey Car week in California, Lamborghini unveiled an
open-top version of the high-performance Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. The
Roadster, presented at the famous event 'The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering', is
available in a limited series of 500 units worldwide and is the first series
produced, open-top Lamborghini to bear the name Superveloce.
"The Superveloce is the purest, most sports-oriented and fastest series production Lamborghini ever. The Roadster version represents our commitment to satisfying our passionate clients with immensely emotional driving dynamics combined with an extraordinary open air experience," said Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
As a member of Lamborghini's storied Superveloce family, the car offers greater performance with a power increase of 50 hp to 740 hp and a dry weight of 3,472 lb (1,575 kg), that is 110 lb (50 kg) lighter compared to the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. This leads to an exceptional power-to-weight ratio of just 4,6 lb/hp (2,1 kg/hp).
The Roadster maintains the coupe's mesmerizing attributes. In an enhancement to the Superveloce coupe experience, the Superveloce Roadster features a power rear window that allows the free-flowing engine sound to fill the cabin with invigorating tones and harmonics during spirited driving.
The naturally aspirated, 6.5-liter V12 produces 740 hp at 8,400 rpm and 508 lb-ft (690 Nm) of torque. Acceleration from 0-60 mph happens in 2.8 seconds with a top speed of more than 217 mph (350 km/h).
And as with the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, the SV Rodster comes with a two-piece hardtop made from carbon fiber featuring technologies such as RTM and Forged Composite, which deliver a perfect surface finish, allow complex design shapes and the highest possible component stiffness combined with extremely low weight. Thus, the two roof parts each weigh less than six kilograms (13.2 lb) and can be stowed easily in the luggage compartment. They provide the perfect complement to the monocoque, which is entirely made from carbon fiber.
Deliveries of the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Rodster begin in early 2016 with base price of $530,075.
