Lamborghini Announce New Aventador SV Roadster

Lamborghini has announced plans to build a Roadster version of the new Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce to follow on from the coupe model.

Lamborghini are already reporting strong customer demand for the open-top Roadster, even though the new car won’t be revealed until August.  Head of Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann said, “We have already sold all 600 Superveloce coupes, and now we are taking orders for the 500 roadsters… there’s already lots of interest from buyers.”

The SV Roadster will be equipped with the same 750bhp V12 as the coupe, but will be slightly heavier due to the extra strengthening required.  The fixed roof of the coupe will be replaced with a two-piece removable carbon lid.  The car should come close to the coupe’s 0-62mph time of 2.8 seconds, but is unlikely to attain the 217mph top speed, due to the open roof.

Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but the Roadster is expected to add £30,000 to the SV’s £321,723 price.
