German tuner Novitec has unleashed a comprehensive program for the Aventador Roadster, ranging from aerodynamic accessories to a mild performance upgrade.

Outside, the roadster features a redesigned front bumper and trunk lid with integrated air ducts, new side skirts, carbon-fiber mirror housings and a massive rear wing. The latter is raised by a special control unit below speeds of 112 mph (180 km/h) to "ensure venting of the engine bay".

The aerodynamic enhancements also comprise a special diffuser for the rear bumper that can be expanded into a double diffuser.

The three-piece NL1 alloys with five double spokes fill out the available space in the wheel arches. The staggered diameters on front and rear axle further emphasize the wedge-shaped appearance of the roadster. The front axle is fitted with size 9Jx20 wheels and Pirelli P-Zero high-performance tires of size 255/30 ZR20. Tires of size 355/25 ZR21 on 13Jx21 rims provide optimal traction on the rear axle.

Inside, the improvements include new leather or Alcantara seats, as well as clear-coated carbon-fiber components ranging from door panels to the instrument cluster cover.

The height-adjustable sports suspension for the top-of-the-line Lamborghini model was developed together with KW automotive. In addition to extensive road tests, the KW 7-post shaker rig from the Toyota Formula 1 team was also used in the development. It allows simulating a wide variety of roads and sequences of turns. The test results are then used in engineering an even sportier and safer suspension setup. As an alternative, Novitec also offers sports springs that lower the ride height of the two-seater by about 30 millimeters.

Thanks to a new exhaust and recalibrated engine electronics with special mapping for injection and ignition, power output of the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster jumps to 717 hp (535 kW) while peak torque increases to 523 lb-ft (709 Nm). As a result the V12 engine delivers even more spontaneous throttle response.

The exhaust systems are also available without engine tuning. The high-performance exhaust comes in a stainless-steel version and in a version made from even lighter Inconel used in Formula 1 racing. Customers can choose from versions with or without active sound control - optionally at a push of a button in the cockpit. Besides optimizing performance, Novitec's exhausts also offer weight savings of up to 57 lbs (26 kilograms) over the production system.
