Ready for next week’s , Lamborghini is giving us a first look at the Aventador S Roadster, which follows Sant’Agata’s launch of the coupé late last year.

The open-top supercar is related closely to its coupé sibling, with the same naturally-aspirated V12 engine sitting mid-ship and making 740 horsepower. Performance, then, is scintillating with Lamborghini claiming zero to 100km/h in 3.0 seconds dead and a top speed of 350km/h, identical to the coupé.

Unlike the plain non-S Aventador, the S model hikes power up from the stock 700hp, and this roadster in particular comes with a unique engine bridge running from the back window to distinguish it from the closed cars. The bridge is finished in a combination of body paint and exposed carbon fibre, and the removable roof panels themselves weigh just six kilograms, thanks to increased use of carbon fibre.

Lamborghini says owners will be able to quickly unfasten the roof panels and stow them in the front trunk, or alternatively, drop the rear window down for more noise.

With active suspension, all-wheel drive and the S’ rear-wheel steering system, the Aventador S drop-top additionally includes the sharper Lamborghini Dynamic Steering system, and revised suspension.

The all-wheel drive system also sends mode power to the rear wheels alone, and the improved aerodynamic design of the car increases front downforce by more than 130 percent according to the maker, and up to 50 percent at the rear. In total, the revisions made to the Aventador S roadster make it 50kg heavier than the coupé version.

When it goes on sale early next year in Q1, the Aventador S roadster will cost around AED1.4 million.
