Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster

One car enthusiast had the opportunity to drive one of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster and remained speechless. The coupe version was launched in 2011 at the Geneva Motor show. This was built around a steel frame chassis with double-wishbone suspension. The all-new Aventado offers a full carbon-fiber monocoque occupant cell and advanced push-rod suspension. It also features a sturdy two-piece forged-composite roof that becomes a part of the chassis when installed. The exterior of the Aventator LP 700-4 was also transformed a lot. To increase the safety margin, the Italian manufacturer has also added twin pop-up rollover posts that quickly extend just behind the passengers to protect even better the craniums in case of an accident.



At a closer look, you can notice the re-sculpted rear pillar, new engine hood with two pairs of hexagonal windows and two-tone body finish. For the interior, the specialists have provided a small, power-operated retractable rear window. When raised it blocks the wind and acts as an effective acoustic barrier between the engine compartment and the cabin. Under the hood, the model has a 6.5-liter V12 mid-mounted engine capable of generating 700 horsepower and 509 lb. ft. of torque. This output makes it the most powerful naturally aspirated engine in the consumer market. The 2013 model has an engine configured with cylinder deactivation. The new Roadster also features start / stop and this means 6.5 liters of fuel comes to a halt when the vehicle is stopped for more than a few seconds. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and to reach a top speed of 217 mph. The base price for the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 was established at $445.300 and so it is one of the most expensive cars in the world.
