Car enthusiasts with modest livelihoods now have another supercar they can drool at but never ever own. Yes, there's a new Lambo in town: the Lamborgini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster.
Billed as "the most exciting series production Lamborghini ever built," the open-top Aventador features a fresh upper area profile, with newly-designed geometric lines that stretch from the removable carbon-fiber roof to the engine hood. The roof splits into two pieces, allowing it to easily stow away in the front luggage compartment.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster, of course, wears other new touches to set it apart from the coupe, including a redesigned engine cover with dual hexagonal windows, an automatic passenger protection system on the rear pillar, a powered rear windshield that varies airflow and engine noise when the top is off, and lightweight Dione rims crafted from light-forged aluminum. Powered by a 6.5-liter V12, it can do a top speed of 217 mph (even with the roof down) and a 0 to 60 mph of 3 seconds.
To create the impression of a completely open car, various parts of the vehicle get a different finish from the body, including the windshield pillar, roof sections and the rear window area up to the fins. Other details include an ISR seven-speed gearbox, fuel-saving start-stop technology, carbon fiber and aluminum construction, and a dual hydraulic circuit brake system.
Deep-pocketed supercar aficionados can now order a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster. Price starts at €300,000.
