The sleekest open-top sports car has finally arrived. Known as the Reventón Roadster, this two-seater, sports car was recently unveiled by Lamborghini. A mean machine, the Reventón Roadster boasts of a 6.5-liter twelve-cylinder that generates 493 kW (670 PS), catapulting the Roadster from 0 to 100 Km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 330 KM/h (205 mph). In fact, the Reventón Roadster is actually extremely similar to the non-drop-top Reventón coupe. What is more, according to Lamborghini, it is one of the most extreme cars’s the company has ever produced! The Roadster is clad in a design of maximum functionality and spectacular clarity. Its color, too, is equally exclusive. The aggressive wedge shape of this car might remind you of fighter jets. Designers have actually created a new shade of matt grey called Reventón Grey, especially for this car. A six-speed transmission and all-wheel drive are some of the features of this beauty.
The engine is mounted longitudinally in front of the rear axle, resulting in 58 percent of the weight being carried by the back wheels. The front end can be raised about 1.6 inches to protect against potholes and steep inclines. Headlamps feature bi-xenon units with LEDs forming the daytime running lights and indicators. Behind the two seats are two hidden pop-up bars that deploy upwards in less than a second in the event of an imminent rollover. Rating high in performance, design, and safety, this sports car is definitely in a league of its own.
An amazing car, the Lamborghini Reventón Roadster will however be limited to less than 20 units. The car is priced at $1.6 million with deliveries scheduled to begin in October 2009. The car will be seen at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
