Lamborghini unveiled a new Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster in Monterey, California as part of the Quail Motorsports Gathering during the Concours d’Elegance. In true Italian fashion, the car’s long name denotes the car’s exclusivity. It’s also the world’s first series-produced open-top Lambo to bear the Superveloce name.
“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,” Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said during the press conference at The Quail.
The LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster has a 50 horsepower bump from its standard brethren, pushing it to 750 hp. It weighs 50 kilograms less than its Roadster brother too, thanks to a lot of carbon and other lightweighting. That makes its power-to-weight ratio an amazing 2.1 kilos per horsepower (about 4.6 pounds per horse).
Powered by a 6.5-liter V12 that outputs 750 hp at 8,400 rpm and 509 pound-feet of torque, this Lambo roadster is capable of 2.9-second 0-62 mph times. Top speed is held at 217 miles per hour. A new seven-speed ISR transmission sends power to all four wheels through a Haldex system.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster is a two-seat hard top convertible (two-piece removable roof). The lightweight carbon fiber roof panels remove easily and weigh only 13 pounds each. They stow in the luggage compartment. The panels are part of the carbon fiber bodywork that makes for the light curb weight of the car, coming in at just 3,472 pounds dry. Deliveries of the new Aventador begin early next year starting at $530,075 plus delivery.
