On the interiors, the Aventador Roadster sports leather and gloss carbon fibre.
This is just one-tenth and 2mph down on its coupé alternative and ranks the V12 Lambo ahead of smaller open-roof supercars such as the Ferrari 488 Spider.
This is because the roadster is a little heavier than the coupe, with a dry weight of 1,625 kg versus the coupe's 1,575 kg. The redline has moved up too from 8,350rpm to 8,500rpm. The powerplant is mated to a seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) transmission that sends the power to all four wheels through a Haldex Generation IV 4WD system. To put things into perspective, the blink of an eye takes around 300 milliseconds.
It utlilises the same mechanical hardware of the coupe, including its strong carbon fibre construction with a mid-mounted 6.5-litre V12 engine that produces 544kW and 690Nm, enough to slingshot the all-wheel drive machine from 0-100km/h in 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 350km/h. It can reach 100 km/h in 3.0 second and has the same 217 miles per hour top speed as the coupe.
The 2018 Aventador S Roadster debuts with updated front and rear styling and most importantly - more power. The four-wheel steering is said to offer better low-speed agility and high-speed stability while the Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) has been created to offer more feedback and sharper turn-in. Drivers will also have the option of opening the rear window in order to experience the song of the twelve cylinders firing away. At the time they also introduced the Aventador S, which would be a more advanced version of the standard Aventador yet a little less aggressive compared to the Aventador SV. The rear however is quite different from the coupe. With the wing in optimum position the roadster achieves over 50% overall efficiency at high downforce and in low drag more than 400%. A fastening system allows them to be removed "quickly" and stored in the front trunk.
