After it’s official release yesterday, Lamborghini has shed some light on how the roof mechanism of the 2013 Lamborghini Aventagor LP700-4 Roadster works. A video has been made at the US private release in Miami gives a tutorial to show how to store and fix the two carbon fiber panels.
The roof features a removable two-piece carbon fiber system and the choice for a removable hard top is two-fold. This allows for a streamlined manufacturing process since the rear section of the Roadster is almost identical to that of the standard car. There is a front luggage compartment where the two parts can be stored.
When making the carbon fiber roof, Lamborghini used various technologies such as RTM and Forges Composite. These technologies guarantee maximum aesthetic performance and stiffness even though each component is extremely light weighting less than 6kg.
