Much like the coupé, which’s expected which all 500 planned examples of the SV Roadster will sell out quickly. The Superveloce products are lighter, more powerful versions of the regular Lamborghini Aventador.
As expected, the Aventador SV Roadster’s performance figures are almost identical to those of the SV coupé. Power comes through the same 6.5-litre V12 engine, producing 740bhp at 8400rpm – a full 49bhp more than the 641bhp on offer from the regular Aventador. Power is actually sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed automated manual transmission.
Despite a slight increase in weight (1575kg versus 1525kg for the coupé), the SV Roadster is actually still capable of reaching 62mph through a standing start in 2.9sec, versus 2.8sec for the coupé. Perhaps most impressive is actually its top speed of 217mph, which matches the coupé.
Also like the fixed-head SV, the SV Roadster features a stripped-out cabin, which incorporates carbonfibre fabric for the seats along with parts of the Inside trim, as well as Alcantara along with leather. Lamborghini’s digital instrument cluster also features.
Lamborghini says the SV Roadster’s hard-top is actually made of carbonfibre along with features a quick Discharge system which adds just 6kg in weight. The company says the design of the hard-top has been optimised in a wind tunnel for aerodynamic efficiency. The glass rear screen can be raised or lowered through inside the cabin, acting as a wind deflector when the roof is actually down.
