According to our spy photographers, the blurry black missile you see above is none other than the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster out for some cold weather testing in Northern Sweden.

While there's a good bit of camo trying to hide the drop top, look closely and you can see a few more lines on the roof than usual. While we fully expected to see a cloth top akin to the cover on the Murcielago Roadster, this bruiser looks to be wearing a carbon fiber shell up top. At this point, it's unclear whether the top will be stowable on board or whether owners will have to hire someone to drive along behind them with the roof in tow.

Is there anything more magical than a 700-horsepower V12 crammed into a convertible carbon-fiber shell? The answer is no, there isn't. The hardtop version can crank all the way up to 217 mph. It remains to be seen whether or not the roadster version will be able to maintain that lofty mark.

      I think if it isn't a fully automated soft top (like the Gallardo Spyder) or a fully automated hard top (like the 458 Spyder), it should be a one piece, easily removable Carbon Fiber targa top that can be stowed in the car. No need for a manual operated, very complex and unsightly umbrella contraption like all versions of the Murcielago Roadster (even Reventon) had. With the full carbon tub, it shouldnt need too much extra reinforcing, and if it is a single removable chunk of Carbon Fiber, it can have almost identical weight and stiffness numbers as the fixed roof. All the better to enjoy 691 hp from a 12 cylinder concerto right behind your head.

      As Car & Driver so aptly wrote, "The Aventador is not the fastest or the priciest. But the big, V-12 Lamborghini is still the most." Unreal car... even to a Porsche fan ;)

      I've been in this industry a long time and the Aventador is the coolest looking production car I have ever seen.

      If this comes with the carbon fiber folding hard top, then it's going to be that much more awesome. It seems with carbon fiber, that the car won't need much frame strengthening when made into a roadster.

      Getting it ready for summer. How do you get a fun job of driving a super car all day?
