Lamborghini has confirmed plans to produce a roadster version of its Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce.
Unveiled recently in Geneva, the Superveloce coupe has already sold out of its limited production run. The package boasts an uprated 6.5-liter V12 engine, tuned to produce 750 horsepower and more than 500 lb-ft of torque, while curb weight has been reduced by approximately 110 pounds.
“The Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure, sports-oriented and emotional incarnation of a Lamborghini, and all 600 units have been sold, with first deliveries starting now,” said Lamborghini chief Stephan Winkelmann.
The extra power allows the hardtop to reach 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds, slightly faster than the ‘basic’ Aventador LP 700-4. It is unclear if the Aventador SV Roadster will bring a noticeable performance penalty due to a higher curb weight, though it should maintain the same 217 mph top speed as its siblings.
The company is already taking orders for the SV convertible, which will be limited to a run of just 500 units. Pricing will likely be north of $500,000, presumably commanding a significant premium over the $489,600 hardtop variant.
