2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster

What Dreams May Come The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster left me stupefied. Despite my experience with countless other high-powered exotics on a variety of racing circuits, including nearly all of its Gallardo siblings, the all-wheel-drive, 700-horsepower flagship dropped my jaw to the ground. Less than 24 hours earlier, I had been sitting on an airplane at 39,000 feet studying press releases about the Italian automaker's newest range-topping convertible. While everything looked spectacular on paper, I was genuinely concerned that its new cylinder deactivation system and... Read More

    Report: Lamborghini Aventador Roadster to use removable roof panel?
    1336411860

    Forget cloth, the upcoming Lamborghini Aventador Roadster will use a removable two-piece carbon fiber hardtop, according to the Italian magazine Quattroruote. The weight-cutting measure means the convertible won't have to stack on the pounds just to include al fresco driving. The carbon fiber roof will weigh less than a cloth top and its underlying metal ...

    Spy Shots: Test driver crashes Lamborghini Aventador, accosts spy shooter

    Being a spy shooter is tough work. It's all about being in the right place at the right time, hoping to train one's lens on a glimpse of verboten sheetmetal. We know from our colleagues that it's hard enough to just catch a blurry glimpse of a distant mule when the quarry doesn't want to be photographed, making this series of photos from our friends at ...

    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 ...

    Rumormill: Lamborghini working on 250-mph Aventador?
    1312547400

    Well well well, what have we hear? Looks to us like a Lamborghini Aventador prototype wearing the wheels from a Bugatti Veyron. The question is, why would an Aventador need the rolling stock from a Veyron? Is Lamborghini preparing an Aventador Sang Arancio edition? Maybe, but not likely. More likely is that the Raging Bull gang is working on a high-speed ...

    We're less than two weeks away from the Lamborghini Aventador's unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show, so that means there's plenty of time for a few more "leaks" ahead of the big bull's reveal. This latest clip of the 700-horsepower V12 Lambo comes courtesy of Autogespot, which has received a remarkably well-produced, two-minute video of the ...

    Don't be foolish, Lamborghini. You should have known that a couple of stock "spy" shots of the Aventador LP700-4 wouldn't be enough for us to call off the hounds. Our crack team of camera-wielding warriors managed to lay their lenses on the upcoming Murciélago replacement while the vehicle was undergoing extreme weather testing near the Arctic ...

    Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 "spied" in the swirly en route to Geneva
    1297206000

    Typically, when an automaker is preparing to unveil a new car, we get a look at the styling and then the technical details. But Lamborghini is used to doing things backwards. It was, after all, one of the first automakers to build a mid-engine sportscar, and was also the one that got its start reverse-engineering Ferraris with tractor parts. And the ...

    Spy Shots: Lamborghini Murciélago replacement caught wearing only camo

    We won't necessarily argue with an automaker (especially Lamborghini) unwrapping its new hotness from the inside out. Recently, we received a photo of the Murciélago replacement's new pushrod suspension – something we were first discovered during our talks with the Lamborghini's CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. Now, ...

    'Tis the dawn of a new digital age, friends. A new spy shot of what is very likely to be called the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has been spotted on the world's most ubiquitous social networking site: Facebook. It seems the pic was snapped and uploaded to the web by a member of the Lamborghini Club of Los Angeles. Although mostly obscured by what looks ...
