The Lamborghini Aventador LP-750-4 Superveloce Roadster has made its global debut at the at ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering’ in California, USA. With a length of 4,835 mm, the SV variant is 55 mm longer than the standard variant. Its rear track, marked at 1,680 mm, is 20 mm shorter than the standard variant. The extreme variant weighs 1,575 kg, 50 kg less than the standard variant, but 50 kg more than the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce coupe.
Like the standard Roadster, the SV Roadster also features a high pressure RTM carbon fibre hard top (painted). But unlike the standard variant, the SV variant sports a carbon fibre fixed rear wing that can be manually adjusted in 3 positions (high-mid-low downforce).
On the sides, the SV Roadster gets the same Pirelli P Zero Corsa 255/30 ZR20 front tyres and Pirelli P Zero Corsa 355/25 ZR21 rear tyres as the SV coupe. Also same, are the lightweight forged rims in 20- and 21-inch sizes in the front and rear respectively. To be even more specific, the front tyres are wrapped on 9”JX20” H2 ET32.2 wheels and the rear tyres are wrapped on 13”JX21” H2 ET 66.7. A non-performance feature added on the sides, is heated external ORVMs.
Under the hood, is the same 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine from the standard Roadster. But it has been upgraded to produce 552 kW (740 hp) and 690 Nm of torque – same as the SV coupe. The 7-speed automated manual gearbox remains unchanged.
While the standard Roadster maxes out at 350 km/h, the SV Roadster can go beyond 350 km/h. It can reach 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, which is 0.1 second faster than the standard Roadster but 0.1 second slower than the SV coupe. It can reach 0-200 km/h in 8.8 seconds, which is 0.2 second slower than its coupe equivalent. It features carbon ceramic brakes, and takes 31 metres to stop from 100 km/h speed, 1 metre more than the its coupe equivalent.
The fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures remain the same as the standard Roadster and the SV coupe, marked at 6.25 km/l (combined) and 370 g/km respectively.
