    The New 2018 Aventador S Roadster

    The icon that inherited the legacy of the historic S models of the Miura, Islero, Countach, and Urraco returns to outdo itself in its most exciting version: the Aventador S Roadster.

    The new V12 engine with a whopping 740 HP and the exclusiveness of Lamborghini design, unparalleled in this open top version, are joined in the Aventador S Roadster by the most sophisticated technology of the range, including the new LDVA (Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Attiva), which provides an incomparable driving experience, all of this able to feed the ego even of those who constantly seek the most powerful and adrenaline-pumping sensations.

     

    EMOTION

    Being able to run at more than 350 km/h is an experience of pure adrenaline. And doing it with nothing between you and the sky is one sensation that can unleash another thousand: the most powerful you will ever experience aboard an automobile.

    Because at the wheel of the Aventador S Roadster, thanks to the extreme agility of its active vehicle dynamics, every curve becomes a quiver of exhilaration on your skin, and the 740 HP unleashed onto the asphalt by the iconic V12 engine is not just music, but an entire symphony.
    With the Aventador S Roadster, you will discover the most powerful tool for feeding your ego and amplifying your senses to the highest level.

     

    EXTERIOR DESIGN

    The signature of the Aventador range is a combination of deep and bold lines, oriented toward the most extreme aerodynamics. The Aventador S Roadster reinforces this mixture of dynamism, refinement and aggressiveness by means of even sharper lines, inspired by nature and aeronautics, with exhaust terminals that transform the rear end into that of a space shuttle and a front end that recalls the strength and elegance of a shark ready to dominate the road.

    And then, the Roadster’s removable roof highlights the life-style at the heart of the Aventador S: an unbeatable mix of sportiness and elegance that allows you to experience every sensation at the maximum level.
    Because the design of a Lamborghini is never an end in itself: every surface of the Aventador S Roadster has been designed to increase power and improve performance.

     

    INTERIOR

    Just like for the Coupé version, the interiors of the Aventador S Roadster completely fulfill the task of seamlessly blending its supersports soul with cutting-edge technology and a design that is always incredibly luxurious.
    The interior finishes feature materials of the highest quality and present an infinite variety of possibilities, like the new S-trim configuration. Options also include the possibility of choosing an innovative material such as Carbon Skin® to be the covering for some of the interior details.

    It is this multi-faceted soul, with its explosive mix of performance, design and exclusivity, that has served as the inspiration for a series of original colors and finishes created especially for the Roadster. Sporty, contemporary, glamorous and luxurious: discover all of the new configurations developed by the Ad Personam team to highlight every subtle detail of the Aventador S Roadster and enhance its unique personality.

     

    DRIVING DYNAMICS

    In addition to its beating heart, Aventador S Roadster is also endowed with an incredibly sophisticated brain: the innovative Lamborghini Active Vehicle Dynamics (LDVA) control unit, 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. The result is performance that is absolutely perfect, safe, and compelling.

    4 WHEEL STEERING

    For the first time in its segment, the new Aventador S Roadster offers a unique combination of the active front steering system (Lamborghini Dynamic Steering) and the rear system (Lamborghini Rear-wheel Steering), offering topnotch dynamic performance. The LDS system adapts to the speed and the driving mode selected by moving from direct steering to a more indirect mode, while the LRS system handles the rear steering axle by means of 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 nimbleness and unrivalled cornering performance. At high speed, instead, the two axles rotate in parallel, which generates a virtual increase of the wheelbase, thus guaranteeing full control of the car and excellent stability.

    4 ACTIVE SUSPENSION

    The new Aventador S Roadster features magneto-rheological front and rear shock absorbers with pushrod system, which constantly modify the behaviour of the suspensions according to the road conditions and the driving mode selected. In addition to compensating roll and undesired body movements, the system has been specially designed 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 specifically with all the new active systems, in particular Rear-wheel Steering, the stabilising effect of which makes it possible to have a high percentage of distributed torque on the rear wheels. This gives a feeling that’s sportier and more fun, but without compromising safety or ease of driving. The four-wheel drive system guarantees excellent performance in situations involving poor grip, and like all the other active systems of the car, it is calibrated according to the driving mode selected by the driver. The torque distribution between the front and the rear axles dynamically varies according to the driving mode selected and driving condition. Moreover, Aventador S Roadster can count on a new generation of Pirelli P Zero tyres. Developed specifically for the Aventador S Roadster they have been designed to further enhance the car’s innovative active systems to ensure excellent driving dynamics.
