Aventador SVJ Roadster makes its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show 2019, upholding the exceptional performance, handling and aerodynamic superiority of the SVJ with its unique roadster design. The result is clear: exclusive open-air driving perfection.
The ‘Super Veloce’, meaning superfast, and ‘Jota’ suffixes are a hint of the car’s performance and track prowess. Just consider that its coupé stablemate took the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record lap-time. But where does this staggering power come from?
The most powerful series production V12-engine car produced to date by Lamborghini puts out 770 CV (566 kW) at maximum 8,500 rpm, accelerating 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, to then be securely stored under the front hood.
“The Aventador SVJ Roadster inherits all the power, performance and ground breaking aerodynamic technologies of the coupé, but retains its own iconic presence and prowess,” said 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 open-air option. Delivering the same extraordinary performance with the roof on or off, the Aventador SVJ Roadster incorporates the dynamism of the coupé with the unique spirit of a Lamborghini roadster.”
The Aventador SVJ Roadster will be produced in just 800 units and the masterpiece on display in Geneva flaunts the new matt shade Bronzo Zenas, a bronze that is only one of almost 350 colors available, and features a special Ad Personam livery in Bianco Phanes (white). The livery emphasizes the sharp lines of the front and rear bumpers and further enriches the specifically redesigned engine hood. Aventador SVJ’s design purity is inspired by super-fast, super-athletic, aeronautical references such as space ships and jet fighters, as well as race motorbikes. The Roadster’s lines, with the roof on or off, clearly identify its aerodynamic design and superiority, delivered by the latest 2.0 version of ALA: Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva, Lamborghini’s patented active aerodynamics system.
The Aventador SVJ Roadster provides an exclusive, fun-to-drive experience, especially with the roof off, on road or track. The three driving modes STRADA, SPORT and CORSA are complemented by the EGO option, allowing the driver to fully customize his or her preferences for car set-up, and they have been optimized to work together with ALA 2.0 active aerodynamics.
