The Lamborghini Concept S is based on the Gallardo and sports a speedster (Barchetta) body that was designed by Luc Donckerwolke. It made its debut in 2005 at the Geneva Motor Show and intended to be a modern interpretation of the single-seat roadsters of the past. What set it apart from other roadsters is the ‘saute-vent’ (French for ‘change wind’) instead of a traditional windscreen, dividing the interior into two distinct compartments by continuing the bodywork between the seats, which also serves as an air inlet feeding the mid-mounted 5.0 L V10 engine.

Limited to just 399-units worldwide and priced at $1.69-million, the McLaren Elva is a roadster in its purest form, or basically a vehicle without a windshield or roof. Why? The vehicle was designed to encapsulate its occupants in an aerodynamic “bubble” by channeling air through the Elva’s nose and out a vent at the front of the vehicle just ahead of the passenger area. The active deflector rises up to 5.9 inches and helps shoot the turbulent air through the front vent before it makes its way over the passenger area.
