Lamborghini presents the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster:
The most exciting series production Lamborghini ever built and the new benchmark in the world of open-top luxury super sports cars.
On the heels of the successful coupe introduced in Summer 2011, and with over 1,300 units already delivered to customers, the House of the Raging Bull is now offering the convertible version of the Aventador, a vehicle that perfectly balances the ultimate driving experience with the ultimate in sports car sophistication.
The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster can immediately be recognized by the unique profile of its upper area, which extends along newly designed geometric lines from the removable roof to the engine hood. The Roadster’s design is the result of a careful study into the best way of combining performance, elegant style, ease of use and a driving experience that excites all five senses.
The two-piece roof is made entirely from carbon fiber using various technologies such as RTM and Forged Composite®. These technologies guarantee maximum aesthetic performance and stiffness although each component is extremely light, weighing less than 6 kg.
These two parts are removable, easy to handle, and being lightweight and simple to attach, can be stored in the front luggage compartment. In just a few seconds the Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster can be admired in all its luxurious beauty. The rear pillar has been redesigned to offer total support for the removable roof, accommodate an automatic protection system for passengers, and provide the engine compartment with ample ventilation.

As we was just about finishing another generic teaser set of images from Lamborghini Showing the Rolling Chassis attached to the Carbon Fibre Passenger Cell.
But it looks like the Italian press leak shows what we really want to see showing a top front view of the LP-700.
One thing surprises us over this leak is that the prototype camouflage hinted at the angular slatted engine cover, only this picture shows the usual aggressive styling is gone and replaced with more of a refined design.
Are we going to get the side views before Geneva time will tell….
Lamborghini are not satisfied in pulling the shroud off the Aventador LP700-4 at the Geneva Motor Show, now there has been a video release/leak from the Italian bull-works driving in the winter landscape in Sweden.
With a curb weight of just 1575 kg (3,472 pounds), that’s all good for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 2.9 seconds, as we had previously reported. Top speed is 350 km/h (217 mph).
The engine is coupled to a 7-speed independent shift rod transmission with shift times of just 50 milliseconds. The model also features a Haldex all-wheel drive system.
Expect another video or two before the Geneva Motorshow in two weeks time.
We fetched you some of the first shots of the LP700-4 lapping the nurburgring earlier in 2011 now the guys from Italy want to show an official spy shot, whats is spy to do with official who knows but I prefer my unofficial shots.
Of its new V12 flagship just weeks ahead of the car’s debut at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show. Lamborghini still has not confirmed the name of the car, which replaces the Murcielago, but a leaked ordering guide earlier identified it as the Aventador LP700-4.
Lamborghini have confirmed the V12 flagship model will make its world debut during the Geneva motor show on March 1,” describing the car as “the Murcielago replacement in ‘Tornado’ camouflage.”
According to the official order guide for the car, the Aventador will be bigger, quicker and more powerful than its predecessor.
The new LP700-4 is to be powered by a new 6.5-liter V12 driving all four wheels through a new seven-speed automated manual gearbox. The engine will deliver 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque.
The car will thrust from 0 to 60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 219 mph.
