Any model coming out of the stable of the Lamborghini, the world leading supercar manufacturer creates a much curiosity among the car aficionados. The Italian power house is also famous for selling on a couple of models, with various variants, as contrary to other manufacturers who offer more than a couple of options. And Lamborghini currently sells only Aventador and Hurracan cars.
While the Hurracan is the latest entrant in the list, the Aventador has been in the market for quite some time now. Lamborghini has recently unveiled one of the highly anticipated Avantador LP 750-4 SV Roadster, the droptop version of the Aventador LP 570-4 SuperVeloce. The roadster made its debut at the Monterey Car Week as a part of the Quail Motorsports Gathering at the Pebble Beach, ahead of the Concours d'Elegance.
While many may think this is a new vehicle from the Raging Bull, practically speaking, it's just a Aventador SV without a roof. But we simply can't ignore the exclusivity of this highly outstanding supercar. Lamborghini offers its customers more powerful version of the already fast supercars in the form of SuperVeloce badging.
While the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster makes 700 horsepower and 690 Nm torque, the SuperVeloce roadster is a league ahead. The 6.5-litre V12 engine is capable of producing 750 horsepower, hence the name. Lamborghini has also reduced the dry weight by 55 kg and the supercar now weighs around 1730 kg only as compared to the standard Aventador.
The weight reduction and power increase resulted in the SuperVeloce hitting 0- 100 kmph in under three seconds with a top speed over 347 kmph. And removing the roof has been kept simple as the non-SV Roadster. Two roof panels, each weighing 6 kg are placed neatly inside the luggage compartment. Another added feature is that the rear power window goes down, to let in that awesome sound.
'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.
Lamborghini will only be producing 500 examples of the Aventador SV Roadster and the super awesome machinery will set you back by $530,075 in the United States.
