Ahead of its public debut at the coming Frankfurt Motor Show, the Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster details have been announced. The open top version of the Aventador S brings the car’s naturally aspirated V12 with 740 hp and offers the same level of blistering performance with a 0-100 km/h sprint of 3.0-seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h.
“The new Aventador S Roadster sets new benchmarks in technology and performance on both road and track, with the roadster version adding a new dimension in driving enjoyment,” says Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Stefano Domenicali. “The Aventador S Roadster offers the thrill of open air driving without compromising on driving dynamics or the occupants’ comfort, and adds a further luxurious dimension through the personalization options available.”

Due to the open top design, the rear end is unique from the coupé.
An engine bridge runs from the rear window to the tail in a mix of body colour and matte black painted carbon fibre 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 convex moulded to ensure maximum cabin space for the occupants. Finished in matte black carbon fibre, optional specifications including high gloss black, shiny visible carbon fibre, and further Ad Personam possibilities. An easy fastening system allows the roof panels to be quickly removed and stored in the front trunk.
The rear window pane can be lowered while the roof is on, while keeping it up helps lower wind buffeting and noise when the roof is stowed.
Five interior configurations are offered, featuring leather and Alcantara in single and bi-colour combinations and various stitching and trim choices. Further external and internal packages such as ‘branding’ and ‘carbon fibre’ are offered, with the Ad Personam program for clients wanting to customise their Aventador S Roadster even further.
The roof panels come clad in black alcantara on the inside, and offer an optional carbon skin package using carbon fibre fabric.
The Roadster adopts the four-wheel drive, new active suspension, new four-wheel steering system, and the new EGO driving mode introduced on the Aventador S coupé, tuning it for the open top’s dynamic. The car has four-wheel steering combined with Lamborghini dynamic steering, updated pushrod suspension, new rear springs and magnetic ride control with variable damping. The suspension is specially tuned for the four-wheel steering, while the all-wheel drive is tuned to deliver more torque to the rear wheel.
