Lamborghini has released the first images of its limited edition Murciélago LP 650-4 Roadster.

Featuring an uprated 6.5-litre V12 engine that produces 478 kW, the motor develops 660 Nm of torque and powers to a top speed of 330 km/h.

Fitted with permanent four-wheel drive, it sprints to 100 km/h from standstill in 3.4 seconds.

Only 50 units of the special edition model will be produced and its body is finished in grey with bright orange accents for the front spoiler, sills and brake calipers.

A transparent engine cover shows off the V12 positioned behind the driver, while an LP 650-4 logo signals the special edition's increased power.

The striking grey and orange theme is continued inside the cabin where it blends with black Alcantara and leather accents.
