Lamborghini have announced the exciting news that their open top icon will return in its most exciting version, the Aventador S Roadster.
Exclusive Lamborghini design meets extreme power with the V12 engine and staggering 740 HP in this new open top. Add in sophisticated technology like the new LDVA (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva) and fans can look forward to an unrivalled driving experience with powerful and adrenaline-pumping sensations.
The Aventador S Roadster has agile vehicle dynamics and with the roof down you can experience more than 350 km/h and an unrivalled and exhilarating driving experience.
As you would expect from Lamborghini, the exterior design will excite the senses with bold lines that adapt to extreme aerodynamics. The Aventador S Roadster combines dynamism, refinement and aggressiveness with even sharper lines which have been inspired by nature and aeronautics
The signature of the Aventador range is a combination of deep and bold lines, oriented toward the most.
Design inspiration is always cutting edge at Lamborghini, and this model is no different taking design cues from the space shuttle with exhaust terminals which transform the rear end. The front end represents the strength and elegance of a shark ready to overpower the road.
Every surface of the Aventador S Roadster has been designed to increase power and improve performance. An unconquerable combination of sportiness and elegance allows fans to experience every sensation to the max. This is achieved with the Roadster’s removable roof highlights which are the life-style at the heart of the Aventador S.
In keeping with the Coupé version, the interior of the Aventador S Roadster seamlessly combines its supersports heart with state of the art technology and a design that is always fabulously luxurious.
As you would expect from Lamborghini, the interior features fine materials and exceptional quality finishes.
Combining performance, design and exclusivity, inspiring colours and finishes have been developed especially for the Roadster.
The Aventador S Roadster is clever too. The innovative Lamborghini Active Vehicle Dynamics (LDVA) control unit is a system of active technologies that can manage each of the dynamic axles of the vehicle. The lateral vehicle dynamics is controlled by a steering system that involves all four wheels using Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS) and Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering (LRS). The vertical vehicle dynamics is handled by the Lamborghini Magneto-rheological suspension (LMS) and the active rear aerodynamics. And the longitudinal dynamics relies on the four-wheel drive system (4WD). The LDVA system combines all the information coming from the car’s sensors and establishes in real time the best setting for each driving condition. This comes together to produce a performance which is absolutely perfect, safe, and compelling.
4 Wheel Steering
The new Aventador S Roadster uses a unique combination of the active front steering system (Lamborghini Dynamic Steering) and the rear system (Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering), producing a first rate dynamic performance. The LDS system modifies to the speed and the driving mode used by moving from direct steering to a more indirect mode, while the LRS system handles the rear steering axle via two electromechanical actuators. With this system, at low speeds the rear axle steers in the opposite direction with respect to the front axle, leading to a virtual reduction of the wheelbase, which means greater agility and unmatched performance when cornering. At high speed the two axles rotate in parallel, which generates a virtual increase of the wheelbase, thus guaranteeing full control of the car and exceptional stability.
4 Active Suspension
The new Aventador S Roadster includes magneto-rheological front and rear shock absorbers with pushrod system, which constantly adapt the behaviour of the suspensions depending on the road conditions and the driving mode used. In addition to compensating roll and undesired body movements, the system has been specifically created to work with the Rear-wheel Steering System, thus ensuring a perfect response in any type of condition.
4 Wheel Drive
The four-wheel drive system of the new Aventador S Roadster has been optimised to work with all the new active systems, especially the Rear-wheel Steering, the stabilising effect of which makes it possible to have a high percentage of distributed torque on the rear wheels. This creates a sportier and more exciting experience without compromising safety or ease of driving. The four-wheel drive system assists with creating an excellent performance in conditions with poor grip when calibrated according to the driving mode adopted. The torque distribution between the front and the rear axles dynamically alters according to the driving mode selected and driving condition. Moreover, Aventador S Roadster can count on a new generation of Pirelli P Zero tyres which have been especially developed for the Aventador S Roadster to further enhance the car’s innovative active systems to ensure excellent driving dynamics.
