Drop Everything! The Lamborghini Aventador Roadster drop-top was unveiled today. If the Aventador coupe is great, then the Convertible is great to the n-th power. When the top comes off, the fun factor goes up, and so does the price. As they say – if you have to ask about the price, don’t bother. If you have the means to purchases this, then hurry and get on the waiting list ASAP. Some people are still waiting for their chance to buy the coupe, and the topless version is likely to be even more popular.
The Aventador Roadster uses a two-piece carbon fiber roof that can be manually removed and installed very quickly. The pieces stow neatly in the front luggage compartment, so pack very lightly. All together the removable roof panels weigh just 26 pounds.
The Roadster uses the same 6.5 liter V12 and the 7-speed transmission as used in the coupe. And the car allows you to reach the same top speed of 217 MPH even with the top removed. Yikes! That’s a fast convertible!
Here is a TFLcar review of the Audi R8, which happens to have a Lamborghini V10.
