2011 Lamborghini Reventon Roadster


At this very same Frankfurt show two years ago, Lamborghini unveiled the Reventon — the Raging Bull’s stunning, range-topping super model. With all 20 copies of the Reventon gone and the Murcielego nearing the end of its long lifespan, Sant A’gata Bolognese has one more trick behind the curtain in the form of the Reventon Roadster.

In all, the Reventon Roadster is essentially a Reventon with a removable roof. It’s powered by the same 6.5L V-12, though it now makes 670 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque and can hit 62 mph in just 3.4 secs and a top speed of 205 mph, but this time with the wind in your hair. A dry-sump oiling system keeps the engine lubricated and mounted as low as possible for optimal weight distribution, which, at 42/58 front/rear is optimal, according to Lamborghini. Lamborghini’s E-Gear single-clutch six-speed automated manual transmission sends power to all four wheels and, when the rear wheels are just spinning, can send up to 35% of the power to the front.
