Are there performance differences between the Aventador S and the Aventador S Roadster
The Lamborghini Aventador has been a stunning supercar since it was first unveiled, and the Aventador S was an improvement above and beyond the original Aventador in terms of performance, style, and more. There is, however, a Roadster version available too. Are there performance differences between the Aventador S and the Aventador S Roadster? Let’s find out.
Horsepower and torque of the Aventador S and Aventador S Roadster
Both the Aventador S and the Aventador S Roadster have the same engine under the engine cover. It’s a 6.5-liter monster that has 12 cylinders pumping power out to four wheels. How much power exactly? This V12 is rated at 740 horsepower and 507 pound-feet of torque.
Which Aventador S model weighs more?
The Aventador S is an extremely light model for a machine that packs in a 6.5-liter V12 in the back and an all-wheel-drive system under its skin. The Aventador S has a dry weight of just 3,472 pounds. For comparison, the Aventador S Roadster has a dry weight of 3,583 pounds. That’s only 111 pounds more than the Aventador S, but some may wonder why that Roadster version weighs more at all.
To make a top removable, of course you have to add the mechanics to remove the roof, but there’s more to it than that. The roof is actually very important to the structure of the car. Without it, your car is like a box without a top, much less rigid. To compensate, the Aventador S Roadster (and all roadster/convertible models) must add extra structure to make up for the rigidity.
Which Aventador S model is faster?
As far as top speed is concerned, both Aventador S models list a top speed of 217 mph. However, that slightly extra weight affects the acceleration, but only marginally. The lighter Aventador S has a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 2.9 seconds and a 0-124 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 8.8 seconds. The Aventador S Roadster has times of 3.0 seconds and 9.0 seconds respectively.
