2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV Roadster revealed

The 2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce (SV) Roadster was unveiled during Monterey Car Week at "The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering." The first-ever series-produced, open-top model to carry the Superveloce designation on lighter and more-potent versions of Lamborghinis, this new al fresco Aventador goes on sale early next year with volume pegged at 500 units globally.

A mechanical clone of the fixed-roof 2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV that bowed at Geneva, the carbon-composite-intensive SV Roadster weighs 110 pounds less than the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. It packs the same SV-spec mid-mounted 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 that develops 740 SAE-spec horsepower and churns out 509 lb-ft of torque, which gets shipped to all four corners via Lambo's trick 7-speed ISR automated-manual transmission paired with a Haldex Generation IV 4WD system. The new Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster can streak from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds -- only one tenth slower than the SV Coupe -- and hit a top speed in excess of 217 mph. Like the Superveloce Coupe, the LP 750-4 SV Roadster features a racing-inspired pushrod suspension featuring adaptive Magneto Rheological (MRS) shocks and a variable-ratio electromechanical Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS).

The new SV Roadster relies on the same two-piece carbon fiber hardtop used on its less-potent sibling. The panels weigh just over 13 pounds apiece and can be stowed in the luggage compartment. Like the 700-4 Roadster, the Superveloce also features a power-activated rear glass element that functions as a wind blocker but also "allows the free-flowing engine sound to fill the cabin with invigorating tones and harmonics during spirited driving." If you really have to ask, the 2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster will start at $530,075 plus destination and gas-guzzler fees that currently run $3,495 and $3,700, respectively.
