Ever since Lamborghini first set foot in the world of automobiles in May, 1963, as a luxury sports cars manufacturer, it has firmly established itself as the epitome of exquisite and exotic cars all over the globe. With its eye pleasing and stylish designs, along with the perfect combination of high performance, refinement, power, and comfort, Lamborghini is now regarded as by far one of the best car companies in the world and a must have choice for luxury and thrill lovers. Moreover, having been in the automobiles market for almost six decades now and having produced great models that have outperformed any other car on the road, Lamborghini cars are now considered as one of the fastest street legal cars in the world.
Furthermore, Lamborghini has been great at ensuring jaw drops every time it passes by with its unmatched and unforgettable models. A few of these amazing models would include the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, the Lamborghini Gallardo, and the Lamborghini Superveloce. Not only are these models simply supreme, but also the fact that most of their names come from fighting bulls is an eyebrow raiser for bullfighting fans. The reason behind this interesting fact about Lamborghini is because Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of Lamborghini, was a big fan of Spanish Bullfighting and was also a Taurus, which is also why the logo contains a bull in it.
However, coming back to the great models produced by Lamborghini, one of them is the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster. “SVJ” stands for “Super Veloce Jota”, meaning super fast in Italian, and Roadster means an open two seater car with emphasis on sporting appearance or character. Living up to its name, this model of Lamborghini is lightning fast and extremely beautiful. With a powerful 6.5L V12 engine having a horsepower of 770hp, this speedster can go up to a speed of 350km/h. Not only is the highest attainable speed mindboggling, but even the fact that it can go from 0 to 100km/h in only 2.9s, and from 0 to 200km/h in only 8.8s, is simply unreal.
The Aventador series had taken off with the launch of the Aventador LP700-4 on the 28th of February, 2011, at the Geneva Motor Show, and was designed to replace the Murcielago as Lamborghini’s flagship model. The Aventador models have gone miles ahead since then and have made outstanding improvements and modifications to their cars. The Aventador SVJ Roadster is the first model to have used the Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ATA) system, which allows the car to achieve 40% more downforce as compared to the Aventador SV and 1% reduction in the coefficient of drag. Moreover, this model of Lamborghini uses carbon fiber for the bodywork and the convertible hardtop as it is an ultra light material, and has a 7 speed ISR Electrohydraulic manual transmission system, which is an Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) system, also known as a clutchless manual transmission system, for extra efficient and smooth transmission between gears.
Adding on to the value and performance of the car is its beauty. What truly makes the Aventador SVJ Roadster unique is its doors. The scissor style of opening, i.e., opening vertically rather than outward like a conventional door, is one feature that can make anyone stop and admire the car for minutes. Moreover, it is equipped with a few key features such as, electronically controlled aerodynamics, heated seats, Apple CarPlay, and a 4 wheel drive system that ensures maximum performance and driving pleasure.
Costing between 573,966 Dollars and 577,661 Dollars, the Aventador SVJ Roadster has earned its rank as the 8th best Roadster, and the 22nd best all wheel drive convertible all over the globe.
