Look, we’re loath to engage in super-hyper-gigacar histrionics, but the 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV is by all accounts (including our own) totally, absolutely, completely bonkers.

Apparently, the only way to make the 740-hp, 6.5-liter V12-powered SV — that stands for Superveloce, by the way — even more nuts is to adhere to the less-is-more philosophy. Which is why Lamborghini proceeded to chop off the poor car’s top.

The result is the just-announced Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster. Like its hardtop stablemate, the Aventador SV Roadster gets that naturally aspirated V12 and, we presume, a similar 2.8-second 0-60 sprint. We’re sure it will feel faster, what with the wind in your hair and all.

2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV

Lamborghini announced the Aventador SV Roadster at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Just 500 will be produced, making it even more exclusive than the coupe, which got a 600-car production run. Expect a pricetag somewhere north of $500,000.

The regular-ol’ Aventador Roadster offered plenty of high-power, high-dollar fun, and the Aventador SV is (intimidation factor aside) an on-track blast. We’ll be sure to bring you more info on this convertible as it becomes available.
