Lamborghini are likely to have the car under the spotlight at Paris motor show in September.
One of the Lamborghini Aventador’s key cues is the rear engine cover.
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.
