Lamborghini’s Aventador SVJ Roadster: Experience An Exhilarating Open-Air Ride

Updated: Apr 26



The Aventador SVJ Roadster --the open top version of the coupé-- made its worldwide premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. "The Aventador SVJ Roadster inherits all the power, performance, and ground-breaking aerodynamic technologies of the coupé, but with its own iconic presence and prowess," says Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, Stefano Domenicali. "It is as fundamentally exciting to drive as the Aventador SVJ, but with an added exclusivity: the option of the open air. With the same extraordinary performance roof on or off, the Aventador SVJ Roadster incorporates the dynamism of the coupé with the unique spirit of a Lamborghini roadster."


Benchmark performance comes from the most powerful series production V12-engined car produced to date by Lamborghini, outputting 770 hp (566 kW) at maximum 8,500 rpm. The SVJ Roadster delivers 720 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm, with a weight-to-power ratio of 2.05 kg/hp. The SVJ accelerates from standing to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.8 seconds.  A top speed of more than 350 km/h is complemented by a braking distance of 100 km/h to 0 in 31 meters.


The roadster roof, constructed from high pressure RTM carbon fiber, is removable via quick-release levers in the cabin, and securely stored under the front hood. Weighing less than 6 kg each part, the roadster adds only 50 kg to the SVJ coupé's weight of 1,525 kg.


Priced at $573,966, just 800 units will be produced of the Aventador SVJ Roadster. For more info, visit www.lamborghini.com
