The new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show as Lamborghini replaces the Coupe’s roof with a carbon fibre panel.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is the closest thing Lamborghini produces to the completely barking mad cars which made its reputation, and now they’ve taken an angle grinder to its roof and replaced it with a carbon fibre panel to deliver a limited run of 800 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadsters.
Instead of the woeful origami tents Lamborghini has delivered in the past for its Roadsters, the SVJ Roadster gets a quick-release carbon fibre panel which stows neatly in the front boot when you want blue skies. But in every other way it’s still a bonkers SVJ.
It gets the same 6.5 litre naturally aspirated V12 with 760bhp sent through a seven-speed dual clutch ‘box to all four wheels for a 0-62mph of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217mph.
The SVJ Roadster also gets Lamborghini;s latest active aerodynamics setup – complete with motorised flaps and air dams – to modify air pressure to suite how the car is being driven.
Inside there’s leather and Alcantara, digital instruments and a rear window to let in even more noise than the roof will.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster costs £388,000 and just 800 are available worldwide.
