You’ve already seen a topless Lamborghini Aventador, but it probably wasn’t what you expected. While the Aventador J isn’t likely to see production, that doesn’t mean its creator isn’t planning something of similar spirit. 

Breaking with recent soft top tradition in Lambo‘s convertible lineup, the Aventador roadster is reported to use a targa top made of carbon fiber that splits into two pieces, according to Italian magazine Quattroruote.

Doing so will allow the car to stay as true to the hardtop’s performance as possible while offering an open-air experience. With a cloth top, the automaker’s engineers would have to rethink the configuration, possibly compromising and certainly changing how air flows to the V12 sitting under the rear-facing slats.

We don’t expect any official information from the automaker until the fall when auto shows resume, though facts have a way of slipping through the cracks from time to time.
