‘lamborghini aventador LP700-4 roadster’


following the debut of the ‘aventador J’ at the 2012 geneva motor show, italian automobili lamborghini
 have introduced the ‘aventador LP700-4 roadster’, which sports a retractable two-piece carbon fibre roof, and is modeled as a convertible version of the ‘LP700-4 coupe’.
equipped with a centrally located, 6.5 liter aspirated V12 engine producing 700-horsepower and torque reaching 507 lb-ft, 
the raging-bull reaches a maximum speed of 218mph (350km/hr), attaining 0-62mph (0-100km/hr) in 3 seconds flat with its four-wheel drive ISR seven-speed gearbox. for the first time in the company’s history, an instant stop & start system is included with high performance capacitors to awake the engine.


the vehicle’s body and frame is composed entirely of aluminum and carbon fibre, reducing its weight to 1625 kg, where it measures 4780 x 2030 x 1136 mm
when sitting on 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels. the exterior is supplemented with a metallic blue ‘azzuro thetis’ colorway, recalling the shades originally found on the 1968 miura roadster, where the interior cockpit demonstrates the use of hand-made craftsmanship using ‘sabbia nefertem’ leather from sant’ agata bolognese in italy.

  • Beltline, and roofline with roof in place, look good. Rearview is best with the shadows in these photos. Otherwise it looks like a cheap watch with too many details and exposed hardware. The kind of big, cheap watch that attract the new, macho ricos.

  • I’m angled out

    G. C. BROWN says:
  • This reminds me of a comment I once heard whispered at an Anthony Braxton concert: “Too many notes.”

    Mac McDougal says:
  • So overly designed, but still with so much beauty. Amazing.
