Revealed: Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV Roadster

Lamborghini has chopped the roof off its Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce to create a Roadster version, debuted at California’s Monterey Car Week.

The first open-top Lamborghini to sport the Superveloce badge, the LP750-4 SV Roadster will be limited to just 500 and priced from £350,000.

Compared to the LP700-4 Roadster, the SV has a power boost of 50hp to 750hp, and a weight of 1,575kg – a saving of 50kg.

This is partly down to the use of carbonfibre – with even the removable roof panels made out of the lightweight material.

The naturally aspirated 750hp 6.5-litre V12 takes a smidgen longer than the coupe to hit 62mph, completing the run in 2.9 seconds. Its top speed remains at 217mph.

Deliveries of the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV Roadster are expected to begin early in 2016. With all 600 LP750-4 SV coupes already accounted for, Lamborghini will be expecting high demand for its Roadster version.
