Lamborghini drive in Miami and new supercar for 2013 Geneva Motor Show
Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, with a number of events to mark the occasion. The recently launched Aventador Roadster in India, too was a part of these celebrations.
On a warm sunny day in Miami, Lamborghini unveiled their all new Aventador LP 700-4 roadster. Following the unveiling, fifty Lamborghini’s sped to the Miami International Airport for a runway speed demonstration. Here at the airport, five Aventador Roadster’s took the runway and touched a speed of 338 kmph, much higher than an average aircraft needs for takeoff.
The new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is powered by a 6.5L V12 engine capable of producing 700 PS of power. Its high performance engine ensures that this supercar completes a 0-60 mph sprint within a short span of 3.0 seconds. The Aventador Roadster production car has a top speed of 217 mph (350 kmph) and is infused with lightweight carbon body technology which accounts for its low weight and efficient performance statistics.¬†The unveiling and runway speed demonstration are a part of a 10-day media launch and dealer education program designed to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini‚Äôs dream of creating a refined grand touring car.
Apart from this, Lamborghini boss, Stephen Winkelmann, revealed that the Sant’Agata Bolognese based car maker will unveil a new supercar at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. This supercar will be part of their 50th anniversary celebrations and just like the Aventador J Roadster, this one too will be a one-off model, built for a special customer.
