Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster makes global debut in California, USA.
Sant’Agata Bolognese/Carmel, Calif. 17th August 2015 – Automobili Lamborghini has shown off the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster at the Monterey Car week in California. ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering’, a famous part of the Monterey event. The Roadster is available in a limited series of 500 units worldwide and is the first series produced, open-top Lamborghini to bear the name Superveloce.
President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said: ‘‘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,’’ during the press conference at The Quail.
The naturally aspirated, 6.5-liter V12 produces 552 kW (750 hp) at 8,400 rpm and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) happens in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of more than 350 km/h (> 217 mph). As a member of Lamborghini’s storied Superveloce family, the car offers greater performance with a power increase of 50 hp to 750 hp and a dry weight of 1,575 kg (3,472 lb), that is 50 kg (110 lbs) lighter compared to the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. This leads to an exceptional power-to-weight ratio of just 2,1 kg/hp (4,6 lb/hp).
The Roadster matches the coupe’s breathtaking acceleration, sheer power and handling prowess and in a welcome addition to the Superveloce coupé experience, the Superveloce Roadster’s features a power rear window that fills the cabin with the sound of that wonderful free-flowing engine sound during spirited driving.
Lamborghini’s highly innovative 7-speed ISR transmission delivers an incomparably emotional gear shift and transfers the engine’s power to all four wheels through a Haldex Generation IV 4WD system. Of course, as in the SV coupé the car takes advantage of adaptive Magneto Rheological Suspension, a pushrod damping system and Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) for improved driving dynamics
As with the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, the SV Roadster comes with a two-piece hardtop made from carbon fibre featuring technologies such as RTM and Forged Composite®, which deliver a perfect surface finish, allow complex design shapes and the highest possible component stiffness combined with extremely low weight. Thus, the two roof parts each weigh less than six kilograms (13.2 lb) and can be stowed easily in the luggage compartment. They provide the perfect complement to the monocoque, which is entirely made from carbon fibre.
