It’s the new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster

The ultimate modern Lambo has had a haircut. Yours for £388,000

There are many outstanding numbers that come as common with the brand-new Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster. 759bhp, 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds, 217mph just … as well as just 50kg heavier than the Nürburgring record-setting SVJ coupe.

And also there’s even more. Lamborghini claims that replacing the cars and truck’s roof covering with fresh air hasn’t ravaged the SVJ’s method energetic the rules of aerodynamics. Evidently downforce is up by 40 per cent versus the old Aventador SV Roadster, which is currently probably worth concerning twenty pence on the pre-owned market. We wish.

Because yep, in spite of the SVJ Roadster prioritising two 6kg detachable roofing panels over absolute hardcoreness, you still obtain the clever aero-vectoring wings that draw away air flow across the automobile as you collar left and right. The SVJ Roadster can still stall its wings when you’re going flat out, to minimize drag. On the way, it’ll take care of 0-124mph in 8.8 seconds. Blimey.

It’s all horribly clever, and well-proven tech, as we uncovered when we drove the coupe. Will an SVJ Roadster ever before see a racetrack? That cares? recommends all 800 examples must come as conventional with their own exclusive tunnel. It’s got no roof covering and also an uprated, naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12. Can you visualize the noise?

Lambo says: “The high-mounted lightweight nude exhaust generates one of the most stirring noise from the SVJ Roadster’s engine, including in the experience of the roadster’s passengers.” Which is an expert means of claiming ‘it goes waaaaaaahhbwwaahhhh as well as everyone within a square mile is gloriously deaf within ten secs.’

In unpopular news, you still get magnetic flexible dampers, 4 driving modes, and also Pirelli’s stickiest tires. In childlike news, the 1,575 kg SVJ Roadster comes as conventional with a rear window decreasing switch to flood the cockpit with as much sound as you can physically maintain prior to you come to be a dribbling wreck. Oh, and also there are 350 colours of paintwork to choose from.

What else would you expect, for simply reluctant of ₤ 380,000? It’s the most extreme Italian drop-top this side of the extremely sold-out LaFerrari Aperta, and also we would not anticipate any of the 800 SVJ Roadsters to hang around either. It’s a glorious homage to carbon fiber, 8,700 rpm V12s, technology so smart it’s banned from racing autos, and also pure pin-up hypercar insanity.

Drink it in. You can practically hear those pictures. Coming soon to a flame-spitting Instagram account near you …
