The wild Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce will soon spawn a roadster version, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkellman confirmed this weekend. The car will be limited to just 500 examples. Lamborghini built only 600 copies of the SV coupe, and all of them have already been sold.

Just like the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce coupe (pictured) that was first revealed at the 2015 Geneva auto show, the roadster will pack a 6.5-liter V-12 engine good for 740 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque, with a 7-speed single-clutch automatic transmission sending power to the wheels. Lamborghini claims the coupe can hit 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph, but it's unknown whether the roadster will have exactly the same performance.

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce coupe also receives significant weight-reduction measures compare to the standard Aventador, and it has improved aerodynamic aids that add 480 pounds of downforce at 174 mph. Expect the roadster to have similar performance enhancements over the regular Aventador droptop.

Winkellman said that Lamborghini dealers are now taking orders for the SV roadster, although pricing has yet to be confirmed. It won't be cheap, though, given that the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce coupe rings in at $493,095 -- before options.
