After the incredible success of Aventador Superveloce, of which all 600 units were sold in just a month, Lamborghini returns with a convertible featuring same exclusivity level.
The all new Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce Roadster was officially unveiled in occasion of the Monterey Car week in California. The Roadster is available in a limited series of 500 units worldwide and is the first seriesproduced, open-top Lamborghini to bear the name Superveloce.
As a member of Lamborghini’s storied Superveloce family, the car offers a power increase of 50 hp to 750 hp and a dry weight of 1,575 kg (3,472 lb), that is 50 kg (110 lbs) lighter compared to the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. This leads to a power-to-weight ratio of just 2,1 kg/hp (4,6 lb/hp).
The Roadster maintains the coupe’s acceleration, power and handling. In an enhancement to the Superveloce coupe experience, the Superveloce Roadster’s features a power rear window that allows the free-flowing engine sound to fill the cabin with tones and harmonics during alert driving.
The naturally aspirated, 6.5-liter V12 produces 552 kW (750 hp) at 8,400 rpm and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) 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).
Lamborghini’s 7-speed ISR transmission transfers the engine’s power to all four wheels through a Haldex Generation IV 4WD system. Of course, as in the SV coupé the car takes advantage of adaptive Magneto Rheological Suspension, a pushrod damping system and Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) for improved driving dynamics.
Deliveries of the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster begin in early 2016 with base pricing of 357,000 Euros or USD 530,075.
