Murciélago LP640 Roadster - the STORY

The impressive Murciélago LP640 was only introduced a few months ago on the Geneva Auto Show in March 2006, but in December 2006, Automobili Lamborghini SpA already unveiled their 'topless' edition, the long awaited Roadster version of this new flagship.

The canvas roof was still there, with 640hp on tap and looks like that, the Roadster edition would become an instant success.

The LP640 Roadster was an impressive looking work of art on wheels, the same new wheel design as available on coupé combined with the extremely impressive central mounted exhaust pipe surrounded by the new rear diffuser, deep front spoiler and extreme side air exhausts, the Roadster edition was one mean looking super car to say the least.

Waiting time would be long on this new model, as many potential buyers didn't order the outgoing Roadster but waited for this new LP640 Roadster, so you could be sure the orders for this 'fighter' on wheels started pouring in when it debuted at the Los Angeles Motor Show on December 1 and on the Bologna Motor Show on December 7.

Again, a true flagship V12 'open top' model from Sant'Agata.
