Hot on the heels of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Coupe comes the Roadster version packing the same naturally aspirated V12 as its hard top sibling. Lamborghini says the ‘Super Veloce’ and ‘Jota’ suffixes denote the car’s performance and prowess and despite removing the roof this latest Roadster from Sant’Agata shouldn’t lose out too much dynamically to the coupe.

Powered by the same 760bhp naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 as in the coupe the SVJ Roadster is almost as fast, posting a 0-62mph time of 2.9sec and 0-124mph in 8.8sec – 0.1 and 0.2 sec down on the coupe respectively. As with the coupe the Roadster’s top speed is quoted as being ‘over 217mph’.

The Roadster’s roof is constructed from lightweight carbonfibre and each part weighs just six kilos. Released with quick release catches the carbon panel is stored in the compartment in the Aventador’s nose when you want to indulge in roof-off motoring and enjoy the full aural delight of the V12. In total the SVJ Roadster weighs 1575kg, just 50kg more than the coupe.

Despite losing its roof the Aventador SVJ Roadster still features Lamborghini’s latest Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system, which varies aero load to achieve high downforce or low drag, depending on dynamic conditions using electronically-actuated motors positioned in the front splitter and the rear wing.

Bentley Bentayga Speed snatches “fastest SUV” title from Lamborghini Urus

Bentley Bentayga Speed snatches “fastest SUV” title from Lamborghini Urus Stand aside Lamborghini: Fellow Volkswagen Group sibling Bentley now offers the fastest production SUV on the planet in the shape of its new Bentley Bentayga Speed. True, we can think of few more pointless exercises, but if the maximum velocity of two-ton vehicles is among your buying criteria, then you should know that the new Bentayga Speed’s 190mph top end is a single mile per hour more than that of a Lamborghini Urus. A rounding error to most, but assuming those in the market don’t just go out and buy one of each, undoubted bragging rights to the victor. © Thomson Reuters Lamborghini’s SUV is still quicker to 62mph at 3.6 seconds compared to the Bentley’s 3.

Lamborghini says the advanced aerodynamics of the Aventador SVJ Roadster are uninterrupted whether the roof is on or off and that the new Roadster offers 40 per cent more downforce that the older SV version of the car. The car’s rear screen is operated electronically and while it reduces buffeting in the raised position with it lowered Lamborghini says it amplifies the soundtrack of the naturally aspirated V12.
