With its sublime 750-hp V12 engine, the Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster is an extreme supercar. If, however, it still leaves you wanting more, respected tuner Novitec Torado has the answer. The solution? A supercharger that cranks the power output up to an eye-popping 970 hp, putting the Roadster in the same league as the LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder hypercar holy trinity. And we thought the 775 horses Novitec squeezed out of the Lamborghini Aventador SV coupe was excessive.
No performance stats were given, but such excess power must surely improve the Roadster’s 2.9 second 0-62 mph sprint time and top speed. Of course, Novitec didn’t stop there. The tuner has enhanced the mid-engined supercar’s already-aggressive exterior with custom carbon fiber components, tweaked the suspension, and added new custom wheels to make it look even more striking. Fitting a Lamborghini with a supercharger may seem sacrilegious, but extracting nearly 1,000-hp is a lot harder in a naturally aspirated engine. Still, combining the whine of a supercharger with Lamborghini’s screaming V12 engine must sound absolutely sublime.
Lamborghini only built 500 examples of the Aventador Roadster SV which makes it even rarer than the 600 Avendator SV coupes that left the factory. Adding Novitec’s new tuning package will only make it more exclusive.
