Lamborghini will headline the Monterey Car Week, which gets underway today, in California with the potentially spellbinding Aventador SV Roadster. The roof consists of a removable carbon fiber panel and gives potential owners a chance to hear the Lambo’s full rendition of the V12.
The Lamborghini LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster is the open top version of the coupe that debuted in March. The 6.2-litre, naturally aspirated V12 generates 740bhp, the permanent 4-wheel-drive system enables the SV Coupe to scream to 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds. The top speed is a reputed 217mph.
The Superveloce (superlight) Coupe has been on an extensive weight reduction programme, at 1,525kg its still a bit of a heavy weight because the best modern day supercars weigh in at around 1,350kg. That said the Aventador SV still makes extensive use of carbon fiber such as the monocoque chassis, door panels and bumpers.
A new titanium exhaust, carbon ceramic brakes, and includes a Magneto Rheological Suspension system which actively adjusts the dampers while cornering are standard on the SV Coupe so naturally expect these technologies to be transferred to the Roadster SV.
Its fair the say the Aventador SV Roadster will come kicking and screaming into this world loaded with technology and perhaps it will have just a little of the madness from Lamborghini’s of old.
The coupe version is limited to 600 models and all have been sold out, punters haven’t been put off by the £285,804 asking price. The SV Roadster should cost around the same price.
