European press and websites overnight suggested that the open-shut case for the Aventador will be a detachable roof that removes in two separate sections.
That the roof panels will be carbon fibre is a no-brainer, given there will still be a focus on keeping weight down – and down low – as much as possible.
However there’s no information on whether the convertible will include on-board storage for the panels, and given the Aventador’s shape that could be a tricky exercise.
But keeping the engine cover identical between the two cars is not just a matter of pleasing the eye. Redesigning it would mean expensive extra work – and lengthen the production schedule.
Lamborghini are likely to have the car under the spotlight at Paris motor show in September, and could well start teasing more details before then.
