The Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster has made its debut ahead of the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, combining the sharpened performance of the Aventador S with the open-air thrills of the Aventador Roadster. 

The Aventador S Roadster adopts the updated styling cues of the Aventador S and builds on the equation with an “engine bridge” connecting the two rear buttresses. Other changes include a removable hardtop roof panels, which weigh just 13.2 lbs and are available in either a matte or gloss carbon fiber finish or high gloss black. The panels can be easily removed and are stored in the front trunk . The rear window is also electronically operated and can be retracted at the push of a button.

Lamborghini is giving customers the choice of five interior configurations for the vehicle including leather and Alcantara in single and bi-color combinations and various stitching and trim choices. The underside of the roof panels can also be covered in black Alcantara framed by matte black carbon, or a ‘Carbon Skin’ material that is even lighter than Alcantara and also covers other parts of the cabin.


The Aventador S Roadster has been launched in a special Blu Aegir exterior color to demonstrate the capabilities of Lamborghini’s new Ad Personam customizations program. Other Ad Personam features on the launch vehicle include a high gloss carbon fiber windscreen frame and door mirrors, carbon front and rear bumpers and carbon air intakes . The Ad Personam treatment continues inside with Blu Delphinus and Bianco Polar leather, Blu Delphinus stripes on the seats, doors and dashboard and blue and white floor mats.

The same 6.5-liter V12 as the standard Aventador S resides behind the seats and is producing the same 740 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque. The same seven-speed transmission is also employed, with the powertrain enabling a 0-62 mph time of 3.0-seconds and a top speed of 217 mph. Carbon ceramic brakes, lightweight 20/21-inch wheels and Pirelli P Zero tires complete the list of hardware.

The Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster has been priced from $460,247 in the U.S.
