While some say that Lambo will most definitely make a roadster version of the SV, while others are far more skeptical. For one, an Aventador SV would mark the very first time Lamborghini popped the lid off of a ‘Super Veloce’ model, as neither the Miura, Diablo, or Murcielago SV have ever driven out of Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata factory without a hardtop. And though Lambo did release the Aventador LP720-4 Anniversario, which gained 20 horses, and the Murcielago Roadster LP 650-4, which gained 10 horses, they were not subject to the same diet, aerodynamic componentry, or significant lift in power seen on the SV models.
Even so, we should also remember that this is Lamborghini we’re talking about. The automaker has shown off a sedan concept (Estoque), an SUV concept (Urus), a one-seater concept (Egoista), and a V10 PHEV concept (Asterion), so suffice to say that Lambo isn’t as predictable as it once was. Plus, with the Reventon and Veneno roadsters already under its belt, it’s clear that The Raging Bull isn’t afraid to rip the lid off its its most powerful vehicles, which produced 650 and and 750 horses, respectively.
So, what do we know so far about the rumoured Aventador SV Roadster? For starters, it will likely be called Aventador SV Spyder, and it will likely be powered by the same 740 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque 6.5L V12 motor that sits mid-ship of the hardtop Aventador SV. Like the Veneno and Reventon, we also expect the SV Spyder to sport a mildly-tweaked exterior, with most of the changes visible aft of the the cabin. And we also suspect that the Aventador SV Roadster will not have a fixed rear wing. Barring a few other mild tweaks here and there, much of what we love about the Aventador SV should stay the same on its roadster variant.
