The covers have come off the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster at the Geneva motor show.
Limited to 800 units globally, the roadster dispenses with the usual fabric roof in favour of a panel constructed from carbon-fibre which is stored under the bonnet when not in use.
Lamborghini claims even with the roof off, stiffness is not compromised. The Roadster carries a weight penalty of only 50kg when compared to the coupe.
As with the coupe version, the Aventador SVJ Roadster is powered by the 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 from the standard Aventador, however, in the SVJ it’s been tuned to deliver 567kW at 8500rpm and 720Nm at 6750rpm.
From a standstill, the car hits 100km/h in 2.9 seconds, while sprinting from 0 to 200km/h takes 8.8 seconds on the way to a top speed of “more than 350km/h.”
The roadster will also feature Lamborghini’s new active aerodynamics system, Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA), which was first seen on the Huracan Performante Spyder.
The system uses electronic wizardry to determine whether high down force or low drag is required to ensure the best aerodynamic set-up in every driving condition.
Lamborghini’s Australian arm is yet to confirm local pricing and availability.
