2013 Lamborghini Aventador roadster

Lamborghini has unveiled the Roadster version of its Aventador speedster, which generates 700hp and boasts similar performance specs as the model it is based on, but adds a removable carbon fiber roof.

Based on the Aventador coupe that was launched in 2011, this new version boasts a removable roof made of two separate parts and weighing in at less than 6kg.

The back of the car shelters a V12 6.5l engine that delivers the same type of performance as the original: the speedster can reach 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds (versus 2.9s for the original) and a top speed of 350 km/h. It is also the first Lamborghini supercar to integrate the Stop & Start system.
