Lamborghini reveals super quick drop top
Lamborghini's latest supercar is one of the world's fastest hairdryers.
The Italian marque has revealed a new topless Aventador called the S Roadster that will launch 0-100kmh in 3 seconds before topping at 350kmh.
"The new Aventador S Roadster sets new benchmarks in technology and performance on both road and track, with the roadster version adding a new dimension in driving enjoyment," said company chairman and CEO Stefano Domenicali.
"The Aventador S Roadster offers the thrill of open air driving without compromising on driving dynamics or the occupants' comfort, and adds a further luxurious dimension through the personalization options available."
It is the only mid-rear engine V12 super sports roadster and weighs only 50 kg more than the coupé. Its 6.5-litre V12 engine outputs the same 740 hp as the coupé, with 690 Nm of torque at 5500 rpm. The seven-speed lightweight Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) transmission provides robotised gearshifts in up to 50 milliseconds, with carbon ceramic brakes as standard. Dione 20"/21" rims are fitted with Pirelli P Zero tires especially developed for the Aventador S. Inside, the TFT digital dashboard can be customised to the driver's preferences and Apple CarPlay is standard.
It has four driving modes that allow selection of Strada, Sport and Corsa and the new EGO mode, each influencing every aspect of the car's behaviour through management of traction, steering and suspension. EGO allows the driver to set up his preferred criteria in each mode to suit his driving style.
The first customers will take delivery in February 2018 with pricing around NZ$500,000.
