DRIVING DYNAMICS
»

Each of the systems at work inside Lamborghini vehicles is a masterpiece of engineering and technology. And the Aventador SVJ Roadster incorporates all the best technologies ever developed by the company. The lateral vehicle dynamics is controlled by a steering system that acts on all four wheels via Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) and Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering (LRS), aided by the use of active torque distribution between the front and rear axles (4WD) and aero torque vectoring (ALA). The vertical vehicle dynamics is managed by the Lamborghini Magneto-rheological suspension (LMS) and the active aerodynamics. Finally, the longitudinal dynamics relies on the four-wheel drive system (4WD), the integrated traction control and the new operative logics of the ABS. The LDVA 2.0 system combines all the information gathered through the car's inertial platform, and determines in real time the optimal settings for any driving condition. The result is perfect performance, absolutely safe and always compelling.


ALA

Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva 2.0 Lamborghini's patented ALA system has been developed to an enhanced level for the Aventador SVJ Roadster, now the ALA 2.0, including new optimized air inlet and aero channel designs. The system has been re-calibrated taking into account the enhanced vehicle's lateral accelerations. The ALA system actively varies aero load to achieve high downforce or low drag, depending on dynamic conditions. Electronically-actuated motors open or close active flaps in the front splitter and on the engine bonnet that steer the air-flow, front and rear.  
 


4 WHEEL STEERING


The new Aventador SVJ Roadster offers a unique combination of the active steering system (Lamborghini Dynamic Steering) and the rear steering system (Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering), ensuring top-of-the-line dynamic performance.  The LDS system adapts to the speed and the selected driving mode, moving between direct steering and a more indirect mode, while the LRS system manages the rear steering axle by means of two electromechanical actuators. Thanks to this system, at low speeds the rear axle steers in the opposite direction of the front axle, generating a virtual reduction of the wheelbase that translates into greater agility and unrivaled performance around corners. At high speed, instead, the two axles rotate in parallel, resulting in a virtual increase of the wheelbase, to ensure full control of the vehicle and excellent stability.  
 


4 ACTIVE SUSPENSION

The new Aventador SVJ Roadster features magneto-rheological front and rear shock absorbers with pushrod system, which constantly modify the behavior of the suspensions according to the road conditions and the driving mode selected. In addition to compensating for roll and undesired movements of the vehicle's body, the system was designed specifically to work in concert with the Rear-wheel Steering, thus ensuring a perfect response in any type of condition and allowing ALA to maximize efficiency and downforce, maintaining a constant aerodynamic flow between the bottom of the vehicle and the ground.  
 

4 WHEEL DRIVE

The four-wheel drive system of the new Aventador SVJ Roadster was specifically optimized to work together with all the new active systems, in particular Rear-wheel Steering, whose stabilizing effect allows a high percentage of torque to be distributed to the rear wheels. This produces a sportier and more engaging experience at the wheel, without compromising on safety or ease of driving. Working in symbiosis with the car's other active systems, the four-wheel drive system allows for excellent performance and supreme driving pleasure even in situations involving poor grip. The torque distribution between the front and rear axles varies dynamically, in real time, depending on driving conditions, grip as well as the selected driving mode. Moreover, Aventador SVJ Roadster can count on a new generation of Pirelli PZero Corsa tires, conceived to take full advantage of the car's innovative systems thanks to improved grip and outstanding consistency, thus ensuring superior driving dynamics.  
 

4 DRIVING MODES

No matter what driving conditions you find yourself in, the new Aventador SVJ Roadster gives you full control thanks to the dynamic mode selector, which lets you optimize engine, transmission, drive, steering, suspensions, and stability control settings by choosing between STRADA, SPORT, CORSA and EGO MODE. This last option allows full customization of every individual setting, for the most personal driving experience ever achieved. By uncoupling the longitudinal, lateral and vertical dynamics, EGO mode makes it possible to obtain the vehicle's top performance at all times and in any condition.  
 

ENGINE

The indomitable V12 engine of Aventador SVJ Roadster stands out for its exceptional design and the advanced technology of its materials. Boasting 770 CV at 8,500 RPMs, and capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 2.98 seconds, Aventador SVJ Roadster provides thrills unlike anything that has ever been experienced before.







   
 

TRANSMISSION

The ISR (Independent Shifting Rods) transmission ensures amazingly fast and exciting gear shifts. The design goal was simple: to create an extremely fast robotized transmission, capable of generating unique driving thrills. The ISR gearbox also offers two crucial advantages for the realization of a super sports car: extremely low weight and a size even smaller than a manual gearbox.





   
 

MONOCOQUE

The use of carbon fiber and its derivatives is among the characteristics that give the Aventador SVJ Roadster, entirely manufactured at Lamborghini's plant in Sant'Agata Bolognese, its phenomenal driving precision. The monocoque of the Aventador SVJ Roadster offers incredible weight reductions and, at the same time, unprecedented rigidity.

Sant'Agata Bolognese/Geneva, 4 March 2019 - The Aventador SVJ Roadster makes its worldwide premiere at Geneva Motor Show, presented by Automobili Lamborghini in a press conference on its stand, alongside the new Huracán EVO Spyder that also makes its international debut. The open top version of the coupé, the Aventador SVJ Roadster upholds the exceptional performance, handling and aerodynamic superiority of the SVJ, with its unique roadster design granting an exclusive open air exhilaration to both driver and passenger.
 
"The Aventador SVJ Roadster inherits all the power, performance and ground breaking aerodynamic technologies of the coupé, but with its own iconic presence and prowess," says Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, Stefano Domenicali. "It is as fundamentally exciting to drive as the Aventador SVJ but with an added exclusivity: the option of the open air. With the same extraordinary performance roof on or off, the Aventador SVJ Roadster incorporates the dynamism of the coupé with the unique spirit of a Lamborghini roadster."
 
The SVJ Roadster sports the 'Super Veloce' for superfast and 'Jota' suffixes, signifying the car's performance and track prowess: its coupé stablemate took the Nürburgring-Nordschleife production car record lap-time and the roadster is no less a futuristic, driver's car. Benchmark performance comes from the most powerful series production V12-engined car produced to date by Lamborghini, outputting 770 hp (566 kW) at maximum 8,500 rpm. The SVJ Roadster delivers 720 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm, with a weight-to-power ratio of 2.05 kg/hp. The SVJ accelerates from standing to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8.8 seconds.  A top speed of more than 350 km/h is complemented by a braking distance of 100 km/h to 0 in 31 meters.
 
The roadster roof, constructed from high pressure RTM carbon fiber, is removable via quick-release levers in the cabin, and securely stored under the front hood. Weighing less than 6 kg each part, the roadster adds only 50 kg to the SVJ coupé's weight of 1,525 kg.
 
Just 800 units will be produced of the Aventador SVJ Roadster. The car shown in Geneva in the new matt color bronzo zenas (bronze) features a special Ad Personam livery in bianco phanes (white). The livery emphasizes the sharp lines of the front and rear bumpers and further enriches the specifically redesigned engine bonnet.
 
A roadster in coupé clothing
 
The SVJ Roadster sports the Aventador SVJ's design purity, inspired by super-fast, super-athletic, aeronautical references such as space ships and jet fighters as well as race motorbikes. The Roadster's lines, with roof on or off, clearly identify its aerodynamic design and superiority, delivered by the latest 2.0 version of ALA: Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva, Lamborghini's patented active aerodynamics system.
 
The ALA system actively 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. Using Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva 2.0 (LDVA 2.0), dedicated algorithms supported by an improved inertial sensor platform govern all the car's electronic systems in real time, activating the ALA system flaps in less than 500 milliseconds to ensure the best aerodynamic set-up of the car in every driving condition. When ALA is off, the active flaps are closed and the rear wing, produced entirely in carbon fiber, acts as a traditional fixed wing, generating maximum downforce for high speed cornering and full brake conditions. When ALA switches to 'on' the flaps are opened, reducing air pressure on the front spoiler and directing air flow via an inner channel and through the specially-shaped vortex generators on the underside of the car. Flaps in the central pylon also open to stall the rear wing, all drastically reducing drag and optimizing conditions for maximum acceleration and top speed. 
 
The aero vectoring system on the SVJ Roadster facilitates high speed cornering. The LDVA 2.0 instructs ALA to be switched on in either the right or left side of the wing depending on the direction of the turn. Increased downforce and traction on the inner wheel counteracts the load transfer in rolling conditions, optimizing the chassis' momentum and requiring a reduced steering angle, improving the car's overall dynamic stability. 
 
Large side air intakes and front side fins increase airflow, aid cooling and reduce drag. Airflow over the roof is uninterrupted whether roof is on or off, and the overall result is an improvement by 40% of the total downforce compared to the Aventador SV Roadster version.
 
The V12 SVJ-enhanced powerplant, with titanium intake valve, new-shape intake runner and length, and modified intake cylinder head duct for higher flow coefficient, is visible through the lightweight carbon fiber rear engine bonnet, removable via quick release clips. The high-mounted lightweight naked exhaust produces the most emotive sound from the SVJ Roadster's engine, adding to the experience of the roadster's occupants.
 
The Aventador SVJ Roadster's rear-wheel steering provides exceptional high-speed stability and cornering agility while reducing braking distances and providing the feedback demanded in high-performance environments on both road and track. Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) is calibrated to provide both steering precision and natural feedback and the seven-speed Independent Shifting Road (ISR) gearbox is optimized for the SVJ Roadster's power and torque. 
 
The Aventador SVJ Roadster's four-wheel drive system and ESC, specifically calibrated, ensure the best handling and driver experience in all grip conditions, also extreme ones, and ABS has been specifically tuned for the improved grip provided by dedicated tires and ALA system. 
 
The Magneto Rheological Suspension (LMS) is calibrated for maximum body and wheel control with a focus on performance on road and track, with anti-roll bar stiffness improved by 50% compared to the Aventador SV Roadster. Both systems cooperate in compensating pitch and roll movement, maximizing the downforce generated by the underfloor. Even with the roadster's roof off, stiffness is not compromised. 
 
The Aventador SVJ Roadster sports super-light 'Nireo' aluminum rims, fitted with specially designed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires or with optional street-legal Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires. 
 
Exclusive open air experience 
 
The Aventador SVJ Roadster provides an exclusive, fun-to drive experience, especially with the roof off, on road or track. The three driving modes STRADA, SPORT and CORSA are complemented by the EGO option, allowing the driver to fully customize his preferences for car set-up and they have been optimized to work together with ALA 2.0 active aerodynamics.
 
The SVJ Roadster's occupants are assured a comfortable experience with the roof off, the driver can electronically open the rear window, which functions as a windshield when closed and when open, amplifies the unique sound of the naturally aspirated V12 engine.
 
The cockpit features Kombi graphics on the TFT digital dashboard display as well as showing live status of the ALA functions. The Navigation System and Infotainment System including AppleCarPlay as an option free of charge, allowing the cockpit's occupants to manage voice activated communications and entertainment from personal Apple devices.  
 
The specification of the Aventador SVJ is virtually limitless through Lamborghini's Ad Personam customization program, and the car on display in Geneva shows only one of almost 350 colors available. In the interior every single leather and Alcantara part can be specified upon customer demand. The program is offered through every authorized Lamborghini dealer and it is also possible for customers to access a very exclusive area in the Lamborghini factory to create a unique car.
