Following on from the introduction of the coupé a year
and a half ago, and with over 1,300 units already
delivered to customers, Lamborghini is now launching the
convertible version of the Aventador.
The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster can
immediately be recognised by the unique profile of its
upper area, which extends along newly designed geometric
lines from the removable roof to the engine hood.
The Roadster's design is the result of a study into the
best way of combining performance, elegant style, ease
of use and driving experience.
The two-piece roof is made from carbon fibre using
various technologies such as RTM and Forged Composite.
These technologies guarantee maximum aesthetic
performance and stiffness although each component is
extremely light, weighing less than 6 kg. These two
parts are removable, easy to handle, and being
lightweight and simple to attach, can be stored in the
front luggage compartment.
The rear pillar has been redesigned to offer total
support for the removable roof, accommodate an automatic
protection system for passengers, and provide the engine
compartment with ample ventilation.
Right at first glance, it’s noticeable that the engine
hood on the Roadster differs from the hood on the coupé
because of its central “spinal column” with two pairs of
hexagonal windows connected at the sides. Their purpose
is to cool the engine and drain off rain water properly
as well as allowing the the V12 power unit to be viewed.
The powered rear windshield not only influences the flow
of air in the vehicle, but also controls the experience
of the sound from the twelve-cylinder engine. The wind
deflector, on the other hand, delivers almost complete
calm inside the car, even at high speed. It rests on the
front windshield frame and can likewise be stored in the
luggage compartment when not in use.
The Aventador Roadster is
also equipped with door windows with chamfered edges,
which always ensure a fit into the hard-top seal, and
underline the sharp side profile of the car.
The body of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
Roadster sports a two-tone finish, as the windshield
pillar, the two roof sections and the rear window area
up to the “fins” are painted in gloss black.
The range of colours available for the Roadster has been
supplemented with a very light, metallic blue colour,
Azzuro Thetis, whose tone varies with the angle of the
light. This colour recalls the shade of the 1968 Miura
Roadster, and both highlights and reinforces the lines
of the vehicle by adding strength and dynamism.
The interior gets a new look. The use of leather called
Sabbia Nefertem highlights the hand-made craftsmanship
of the upholstery from Sant' Agata Bolognese and is a
match for the exterior in Azzuro Thetis. Finally, the
new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster also features new Dione
20”/21” rims with a more aggressive look. Crafted in
light forged aluminium, they lower the weight of the
vehicle by 10 Kg as compared with the standard set of
The new Aventador LP700-4 Roadster boasts strong
performance figure. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in
only 3 seconds flat and has a maximum speed of 350 km/h.
These numbers, combined with a drive train featuring a
centrally located, 6.5 liter aspirated V12 generating
700 hp, an ISR 7-speed gearbox and push-rod suspension
make the new Aventador Roadster a unique sports car.
The Roadster's V12 also includes a cylinder deactivation
system when the engine is working at partial capacity,
while the innovative, instant Stop & Start system
includes high-performance capacitors (known as 'supercaps')
to awaken the engine. This is a first in the super
sports car segment. The Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is
priced at 300,000 euro, excluding taxes.
