At this moment we all know the 'canvas roof' available on the Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster model is not what you might call the best looking, or easiest to mount canvas top available.
But help could be available soon ... there are rumors that you will be able to buy a hardtop roof for the V12 Roadster soon, either finished in lightweight Carbon Fiber or with a glass section, so even when driving 'closed' you'll be able to see the first ray of sunshine between the clouds ...
I'm sure that the possibility to drive the Roadster like a Coupé will get more people to opt for the open-version of the Murciélago than today, since with the standard canvas top mounted you're limited to a speed of about 180 Km/h, a serious drawback on a V12, 580 Bhp super car ...
Update : (October 2005)
The Carbon Fiber roof section for the Murciélago Roadster is now available, check out the photograph at the left and the image galleries for this model.
