Lamborghini will launch a more powerful drop-top Aventador at the Frankfurt motor show this month. The Aventador S Roadster uses Lamborghini’s 740hp, 6.5-litre V12, generating 690Nm of torque, and can accelerate from 0-100kph in 3.0sec; it tops out at 350kph.
This is just one-tenth and 3.2kph down on its coupé alternative and ranks the V12 Lambo ahead of smaller open-roof supercars such as the Ferrari 488 Spider.
Like the coupé Aventador S, the Roadster gets an active rear wing and aerodynamic addenda to increase downforce by 130 percent over its predecessor.
The addition of the removable roof adds just 50kg to the overall weight, bringing it to a total 1,625kg.
The four driving modes remain – Strada, Sport, Corsa and the new Ego, which allows suspension, throttle and gearbox settings to be adjusted separately.
Drive is sent to all four wheels via Lamborghini’s seven-speed robotised Independent Shifting Rod, which is claimed to switch cogs in up to 50 milliseconds.
First deliveries are expected in February 2018.
