Open-top variant of the 740bhp V12-engined Aventador Superveloce coupé will be unveiled at the Pebble Beach concours next month
The existence of the Aventador Superveloce Roadster was first confirmed by officials last month, following the debut of the coupé type in Geneva earlier which year, although which is actually the very first time Lamborghini has set a reveal date for the automobile. The Superveloce versions are lighter, more powerful versions of the regular Lamborghini Aventador.
Production of the Aventador Roadster will be limited to just 500 examples, 100 less than the coupé variant, which made its UK dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier which summer. which’s understood which all 650 planned examples of the Superveloce coupé have already been sold.
Although Lamborghini hasn’t revealed any performance figures for the Roadster, they are supposed to be almost identical to those of the coupé. which will be powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 740bhp at 8400rpm – a full 49bhp more than the 691bhp on offer within the regular Aventador. Power will be sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed automated manual transmission.
Despite a likely increase in weight over the coupé’s 1525kg, the Aventador Superveloce Roadster is actually supposed to be able to match the coupé’s 0-62mph sprint time of 2.8sec, although the same is actually unlikely to be said for the coupé’s 217mph top speed.
Also like the Superveloce coupé, the Roadster will feature a stripped-out cabin, which incorporates carbonfibre fabric for the seats in addition to also parts of the Inside trim, as well as Alcantara in addition to also leather. Lamborghini’s digital instrument cluster will also feature.
Given its more exclusive nature, which’s likely the Aventador Superveloce Roadster will command a significant premium over the coupé’s cost tag of £321,743.
