the ‘aventador S roadster’ is revealed by lamborghini at IAA 2017 in frankfurt, combining the technologies and driving dynamics of the ‘aventador S‘ with an emotive open air driving experience. the convertible maintains the unmistakable design of the ‘aventador S’ along with unique features reflecting its roadster persona.

 

 

the lamborghini ‘aventador S roadster’s’ rear sports different lines to the coupé, giving the supercar its own aerodynamic character. an engine bridge runs from the back window to the rear in a mix of body color and matt black painted carbon fiber engine bonnet blades: a transparent option is also available to show-off the V12 engine within. sleek, removable, hardtop roof panels, weighing less than six kg, are convexly molded to ensure maximum cabin space for the occupants. an easy fastening system allows the roof panels to be quickly removed and stored in the front trunk.

the ‘aventador roadster’s’ ‘S’ suffix denotes the design and technology advancements of the new model. the roadster adopts the four-wheel drive, new active suspension, new four-wheel steering system, and a new ‘ego’ driving mode introduced on the ‘aventador S coupé’, and with the redevelopment of every aspect of suspension and electronic control systems, its ‘total control concept’ assures superior drive, ride and performance. the convertible’s four driving modes allows selection of ‘strada’, ‘sport’ and ‘corsa’ and the new ‘ego’ mode, each influencing every aspect of the car’s behavior through management of traction, steering and suspension. ‘ego’ allows the driver to set up their preferred criteria in each mode to suit their driving style.

 

 

accelerating 0-100 km/h (0 – 62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds, with a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph), the roadster weighs 50 kg more than the coupé. its 6.5 liter V12 engine outputs the same 740 hp as the coupé, with 690 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. the seven-speed lightweight independent shifting rod transmission provides robotized gearshifts, with carbon ceramic brakes as standard. dione 20” / 21” rims are fitted with pirelli ‘P zero’ tires especially developed for the ‘aventador S’. inside, the TFT digital dashboard can be customized to the driver’s preferences and apple carplay is standard.

 

 

complementing external colors, five interior configurations are offered, featuring leather and alcantara in single and bi-color combinations. owners can also select the internal specification of the roof panels: covered in black alcantara framed by matt black carbon as standard, plus an optional carbon skin package (lamborghini’s high-tech fabric that is lighter than alcantara) can cover the interior roof panels as well as around the cockpit and parts of the cabin.
