2018 Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster gets rendered

Article by Christian A., on February 15, 2017

It was just last week that Lamborghini gave everyone their first glimpse of the new Aventador S. Not surprisingly, a number of artists immediately went to work and revealed their own renditions.

One of this is X-Tomi which revealed a Roadster version. The open top version of this model is likely to experience the same changes on the bodywork done for the coupe. This not only gives it a form that is efficient on an aerodynamic level but one that displays aggressiveness as well. The final product will probably have the same appearance and the different changes incorporated to the design combined with the new exhaust system and modified suspension.

It will even have the four-wheel steering first seen on the S. Powering this variant will be the naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine which brings with it an extra output of 39 hp (40 PS) totaling 730 hp (740 PS). This power could reduce the already incredible acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) of 3.0 seconds.

Six years ago at the Geneva Auto Show, Lamborghini unveiled the Aventador – referring to it as the Murcielago’s replacement. The newest iteration adds “S” to the suffix to highlight the higher power, excellent driving dynamics, and a design that is more aggressive. Despite this new model being a mid-life cycle update, many Italians come to call it as the newest generation of the Aventador.

The different changes on the exterior include the splitter in the front being made longer and a nose that has been made more aggressive. Meanwhile on the rear end, there is a new diffuser in black, which is offered in carbon fiber as an option. The wheel arches on the rear immediately bring to mind the Countach. These changes are not only limited to enhancing the visuals but help the front section experience better downforce by at least 130% when compared to the previous version. On the rear, the wing allows for it to be adjusted in three positions. With this, the optimum position ensures for aerodynamic efficiency to be enhanced by 50%. The low drag position on the other hand results in improvement by as much as 400%.

As mentioned, power output is 730 hp (740 PS) with peak torque of 509 lb.-ft. (690 Nm). This is transmitted to the wheels through the 7-speed transmission. It also got a new and lighter exhaust system. Acceleration from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) is possible in 2.9 seconds with maximum speed at 217 mph (350 km/h). With dry weight at 3,472 lbs. (1,575 kg), power-to-weight ratio stands at an improved 2.13 kg for every hp.

Deliveries for the Aventador S are slated to start in the spring of 2017 with suggested retail price for the U.S. market, including tax, of $421,350. For the U.K. market, price starts at £225,955, but does not include tax.
