    Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster Makes Debut

    Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster Makes Debut

    By Viknesh Vijayenthiran | HighGearMedia.com, Published: November 12


    How do you make the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 even hotter? Just remove the roof.

    That’s exactly what you have with the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, which has been revealed in full today and is set to go on sale in time for summer of 2013.

    Next to the coupe, it’s easy to recognize Lamborghini’s newest convertible. It has a unique upper section, which extends along newly designed geometric lines from the removable carbon fiber roof to the engine hood.

    Yes, instead of the complicated build-your-own roof used on the Murcielago Roadster, which the Aventador Roadster replaces, Lamborghini designers have gone with a simple two-piece design that simply snaps into place. When not in use, the two pieces fit snugly in the car’s front storage compartment.
    As they are made from carbon fiber, they’re not only sturdy but also extremely light. The roof's total weight comes in at less than 13 pounds, making it very easy to handle.

    In order to accommodate the new roof, the Aventador's rear pillar needed to be redesigned and now includes an automatic protection system for passengers and cooling vents for the engine bay. A powered rear windshield is also fitted and can be lowered or raised depending on how much sound the driver wants in the cabin.
    The engine’s hood needed to be redesigned as well, with it now featuring a central ‘spinal column’ and two pairs of hexagonal windows connected at the sides. Their purpose is to cool the engine, drain off rain water properly and, of course, allow the beauty of the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V-12 power unit to be admired.

    No changes to the drivetrain were made, so the V-12 is still rated at 691 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque, and it still powers all four wheels via Lamborghini’s unique Independent Shifting Rod automated manual transmission with seven forward gears. Lamborghini estimates a 0-60 mph time of 3.0 seconds flat and a top speed of 217 mph.

    Inside, the use of a new leather dubbed Sabbia Nefertem highlights the hand-made craftsmanship of the staff at Lamborghini’s factory in Sant' Agata Bolognese. The lighter hue perfectly matches the exterior, which is now available in a two-tone Azzuro Thetis finish (Lambo fans will recall that this color is similar to the one used on the 1968 Miura Roadster). Glossy black is used on the windshield pillar, the two roof sections and the rear window area.

    Coming in for the 2013 model year, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster features Lamborghini’s new cylinder deactivation system and engine stop-start system. It also gets a new Dione wheel pattern for the 20- and 21-inch forged aluminum wheels available on the Aventador. They’re some 22 pounds lighter than the standard set of rims.

    What a vulgar machine.

    For arab princes, premiership footballers, bimboid starlets and las vegas lottery winners.

    Motorists of class and in possession of good taste would look to the products offered by bentley, aston martin, bristol and lagonda.

    Porsches are fine machines too.

    when the next crash comes, they will be very cheap. I remember the price of exotic cars after the last one, in the early 90's, they fell like a rock.

    If you checked out Top Gear lately you would have seen the "Cinquo Elemento" which makes the Aventador look like a Ford.
