Italian Luxury Sports Car manufacturer Lamborghini on Monday launched its drop-top variant Aventador Roadster with enthralling power-retractable roof.
The latest roll out from the company aims to tackle the tough competition in the super luxury car market which is expected to fall flat in the coming year.
The car, which bears the elegant look of the company's successful model Aventador coupe, hopes to set another benchmark in the super luxury car market.
"Sales are up in comparison to last year at least 10 percent, even more," Stephan Winkelmann, chief executive told Reuters in an interview. "We already have exceeded the sales of the total year 2011, so this is a good sign."
The topless version of the company's flagship car model Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster comes with a price tag of €300,000 ($381,420).
The dynamic and enthralling Aventador Roadster features a two-panel carbon-fiber roof which can be folded and stored in the front luggage compartment of the car when not in use. The roof is lightweight and easy to handle, according to the company. Besides the dropping roof, the car accommodates a rear pillar which is designed to protect the passengers as well as to support the roof of the car. It is powered by the same old V12 engine which is expected to generate 700 horsepower along with a top speed of 350 kilometer /hour.
Other features of the new variant include rear windscreen and a front-mounted wind deflector. Like the roof of the car, the windscreen too can be removed and stored. The new model has been supplemented with metallic blue colour, which according to the company website, recalls the shade of the 1968 Miura Roadster.
No longer covered by a fixed roof, the car's interior comes with a dashing design which is worth displaying. The interior of the car is wrapped with the leather called Sabbia Nefertem and it also highlights the hand-made craftsmanship.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 with the fixed roof panel was first introduced in the year 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show on 28 February and the company has sold 1,300 units till date.
