At the Monterey Car Week in California Automobili Lamborghini unveiled the Lamborghini Aventador’s newest sibling – the LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster. The exclusive model is only available in a limited series of 500 units worldwide and is the first series produced, open-top Lamborghini to bear the name Superveloce.
The latest offering boasts greater performance with a power increase of 50 hp to 750 hp and a dry weight of 1,575kg – 50kg lighter than the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster – and a power to weight ratio of 2,1kg/hp (4,6 lb/hp).
The Roadmaster also maintains the coupe’s breathtaking acceleration, power and handling prowess and features a power-rear window that allows the free flowing engine sound to fill the cabin with invigorating tones and harmonics during driving. The impeccable gear shift transfers the engine’s power to all four wheels through a Haldex Generation IV 4WD system.
As with the precious Aventador, the SV Roadster also comes with a two piece hardtop made from carbon fiber technologies including RTM and Forged Composite. This provides a perfect surface finish while allowing for complex design shapes and the highest possible component stiffness combined with extremely low weight. The two roof parts each weigh less than six kilograms and can be stored in the luggage compartment.
‘‘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.
Deliveries of the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster begin in early 2016 with base pricing of 357,000.00 Euros (excl. VAT) or USD 530,075.00 MSRP.
