Miami is a stunning city with awesome weather year-round. Occasionally you might get a couple of days of rain here and there but for the most part, the sun is always shining down. If you thinking of renting a Lambo in the sunny city, you might be considering whether to go with a coupe or convertible.
They both have their pros and cons but the short answer is that it’s best to go with a convertible. Whether you choose to rent a Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster or a Lamborghini Huracan EVO Spyder a convertible gives you more options than a coupe.
Whether you’re in Miami for business or pleasure a Lamborghini rental is one of the most exciting things you can do in the city. There’s nothing like dropping the top on a Lamborghini and cruising down ocean drive.
Both the Lamborghini Huracan and Aventador come with convertible options. The Huracan EVO Spyder is the latest entry-level Lamborghini rental with slight upgrades over the previous Huracan. This is the easiest Lamborghini to operate when it comes to the convertible top.
While inside the car you can press a button and the roof can be retracted in a matter of seconds. It takes 17 seconds to be exact. As long as you are driving under 30 mph you can even close or open the retractable top while moving. This is a handy feature if it gets too hot or if it starts to rain.
The Convertible Huracan is 265lbs heavier overall than the coupe but that has a negligible impact on performance. In previous Lamborghini’s the performance of convertibles was not as good as the coupes but due to recent innovations in automotive technology, they perform almost equally.
The issue with the previous generation of convertibles was the compromised rigidity of the frame with the missing roof but now because of advancements in carbon fiber cockpit designs the structure of the roof is not needed as much.
Where it gets a little tricky is with the Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster. The Roadster is more of a T-top design than a convertible. Although it is a one-piece design you do have to remove the top manually. Because of this, you will need to pull the car over and remove the top and place it inside the hood compartment.
As long as it doesn’t rain most customers just leave the top off for the duration of their rental. It can be a little challenging to remove and reinstall the roof panel and you could damage it in the process. A little scratch on the roof could cost you more than a thousand dollars.
For this reason, some might opt for the Aventador S Coupe instead. It’s also a little cheaper to rent but not as exotic and fun. Taking pictures of the Aventador S Roadster with the doors up and the roof removed can make for some Instagram clout like you’ve never seen before.
Convertibles are awesome but coupes can have some benefits too. One of the best things about the coupe is the sleek roof profile. Lamborghini rentals like the Huracan EVO Spyder have a cloth roof that might not be as visually appealing to some.
When it comes to the Aventador many the roadster looks almost identical to the coupe when the top is up but some would prefer to avoid having to remove the top and save the extra cash for a nice bottle of wine to enjoy with your significant other.
Lamborghini purists always prefer the coupe because it stays true to the racing car heritage of Lamborghini so this might be a reason you prefer the coupe. Either one you decide on will make for a fun experience that you will have to tell your kids.
