Automobili Lamborghini recently launched its Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce (SV) Roadster at the Monterey Car week in California, US, and announced deliveries to begin in early 2016. Production of the Aventador LP 750-4 SV Roadster is limited to 500 units globally, and is said to be the first series produced, open-top Lamborghini to bear the SV name.
The Aventador LP 750-4 SV Roadster is powered by the same naturally-aspirated, 6.5l V12 engine that is present in the coupe. The delivers maximum power of 750 hp at 8,400 rpm, and 690 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. The car is claimed to be able to reach a top speed of over 350 km/h. With a dry weight of 1,575 kg, the Aventador LP 750-4 SV Roadster is said to have a very high power-to-weight ratio of just 2.1 kg/hp.
The engine is mated to Lamborghini’s permanent all-wheel drive seven-speed ISR transmission through a Haldex Generation IV 4WD system. The car features adaptive Magneto Rheological Suspension, a pushrod damping system and Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) for improved driving dynamics, the company said. The car also features a power rear window that allows the engine sound to fill the cabin during driving. The SV Roadster comes with a two-piece hardtop made from carbon fibre, which combines component stiffness with extremely low weight, resulting in a weight of less than six kg.
