If you thought the Lamborghini Aventador S – the Italian brand’s designation for the facelifted model – was perfect in its coupe guise, here comes the Roadster, making you regret summer has come to an end.
Bringing the wind in the perfect mix of Italian performance and luxury, the supercar brand has just decided to drop the top of the Aventador S for the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. Fret not, you’re not going to catch a cold in the new Roadster version, the sales kick off next year, so you’ll probably prepare for that Saint Moritz vacation next spring. The convertible supercar is a true sibling to the coupe version, save for the needed bespoke elements. The Roadster’s removable, hardtop roof panels are as light as not even hitting the 13 pounds (6 kilograms) mark, and come in standard matt black carbon fiber, or optional high-gloss black finish, but you can also select the color of your choice from the Ad Personam catalogue.
There’s a Y-shaped engine bridge at the back, combining the body’s color with matt black painted carbon fiber engine hood blades. A transparent bridge can also be summoned, showcasing the V12 engine to the entire world. Underneath lurks the same monster – naturally aspired V12 packing no less than 730 horsepower (544 kilowatts) and 508 pound-feet (690 Newton-meters) of torque, linked to a seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) transmission. It’s enough power to propel the supercar to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just three seconds, reaching up to 217 mph (350 kph). You also get the AWD system, active suspension, four-wheel steering, and EGO driving modes: Strada, Sport, and Corsa, as seen on the Coupe. After premiering in front of the worldwide audience of the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Aventador S Roadster will be priced from $460,247 in the US, £251,462 in the UK and €313,666 in Europe.
