Automobili Lamborghini has confirmed a limited production run of open-top Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadsters. The announcement was made at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Lambo Aventador SV Roadster: the lowdown

The maximum-velocity V12 follows the company’s well proven formula for go-faster thrills: the coupe sports an extra 50 horsepower and 50 fewer kilogrammes. The coupe LP750-4 Superveloce was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva motor show.

While no outright performance figures have been claimed yet for the soft-top, the coupe rips to 62mph in just 2.8sec and has a top speed of 217mph.

Lamborghini president and CEO Stephan Winkelmann said: ‘The Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure, sports-oriented and emotional incarnation of a Lamborghini, and all 600 units have been sold, with first deliveries starting now. We will also produce a roadster version, which our dealers worldwide are now taking orders for.’
