Devilish Lambo: Fastest drop-top

2006-11-30 10:10

Lamborghini's latest hot wheels!

Meet the fastest open-top car in the world! Well, that is according to Lamborghini who just unveiled the Murcielago LP640 roadster at the Los Angeles Motor Show.

According to Lamborghini it goes from 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds. Top speed is a super fast 325km/h.

The roadster has a canvas roof but apparently it is not a "good idea" to open it up if you drive at speeds above 160km/h.

Like its coupe sibling, which was launched at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the roadster comes with a 6.5-litre V12 engine. Power output is 471kW while torque is a whopping 660Nm.
