Lamborghini Reventon Loses its Top: First Photos of Roadster Model
Didn't manage to empty your bank account on one of the 20 Lamborghini Reventon coupes? No worries, as the Italian dream-carmaker is readying another exclusive batch of Reventons, this time in roadster form. The front piece of Lamborghini's stand at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show gets the same jet-fighter looks as the coupe model which was unveiled two years ago sans the rooftop, of course. There's nothing official on the car as of yet, but we suspect that the topless Reventon will be powered by Lambo's particular feisty 6.5-liter V12 producing around 650HP.
Logically, the all-alloy V12 should be paired to a six-speed transmission with paddleshifts and the Murcielago's four-wheel drive mechanicals launching the car from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in the mid-three-second range and on to top speed in excess of 320km/h or 200mph.
The Roadster model should easily top the hardtop Reventon's €1,000,000 price tag, but we gather that won't be a problem for the very few that will be interested in buying the supercar.
