Lamborghini has unveiled the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster in occasion of the Monterey Car Week in California. The Roadster will be available in a limited series of 500 units worldwide and is the first series- produced, open-top Lamborghini to bear the name Superveloce.
As a member of Lamborghini’s storied Superveloce family, the car offers greater performance with a power increase of 50 hp to 750 hp and a dry weight of 3,472 lb, that is 110 lbs lighter compared to the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. This leads to an exceptional power-to-weight ratio of just 4,6 lb/hp.
The Roadster maintains the coupe’s breathtaking acceleration, sheer power and handling prowess. In an enhancement to the Superveloce coupé experience, the Superveloce Roadster’s 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 750 hp at 8,400 rpm and 690 Nm of torque. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) happens in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of more than 350 km/h (> 217 mph).
As 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 pricing of $530,000 USD.
