FrontRunners: Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster

<< Back to Robb Report, The 2013 Ultimate Home

The convertible version of Robb Report’s 2012 Car of the Year has arrived from Sant’Agata, Italy. The debut of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster (www.lamborghini.com) took place in January, the beginning of the company’s 50th anniversary year. The anniversary celebration will culminate in May with the Grande Giro (www.lamborghini50.com), a five-day, 750-mile road rally through Italy that will feature hundreds of vintage and modern-day Lamborghinis—including, perhaps, a few Aventador Roadsters. Powered by a 700 hp, 6.5-liter V-12, the $445,000 Roadster catapults from zero to 60 mph in less than three seconds and continues to a top speed of 217 mph (with or without the 26-pound carbon-fiber top in place). The Aventador Roadster is offered in a light-blue metallic called Azzuro Thetys (shown here), which is similar to the color of the 1968 Miura Roadster show car.
