Lamborghini has officially unveiled the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster in occasion of the Monterey Car week in California.
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,” Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said during the press conference at The Quail.
The naturally aspirated, 6.5-litre V12 produces 552 kW (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.
Lamborghini’s highly innovative 7-speed ISR transmission delivers an incomparably emotional gear shift and 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.
Similar to the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, the SV Roadster comes with a two-piece hardtop made from carbon fibre.
Deliveries of the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster begin in early 2016 with base pricing of $530,075 USD (approximately $720,000 AUD).
