During the Roadster's development, the roof posed a particular challenge for our engineers. Since the torsion resistance decreases if a car has a detachable roof, our technicians had to come up with a clever concept in order to compensate for that reduction. Compared to the coupé they used reinforced carbon fiber fabric and more layers on the certain parts of the car, for example the side skirts or the transmission tunnel.
By integrating these reinforcements, the Roadster only gained 50 kg in weight. Just like its closed-top counterpart, the Aventador Roadster remains an uncompromising driving machine – not only on sunny days.
