Lamborghini Aventador Roadster to be equipped with a targa top

May 7, 2012 at 8:31 am

According to the Italian car magazine Quattroruote, the upcoming roof-less version of Lamborghini Aventador will feature a removable roof in targa body style.  It will be produced entirely of lightweight carbon-fiber and will consist of two parts, most likely made to fit under the front bonnet. This means that the rear end will stay virtually unchanged. More details are not available yet, but we know that the supercar will keep its 6.5-liter V12 powerplant producing 691 hp.

Natural Sounds: Lamborghini Coutach LP400S [Video]

May 6, 2012 at 5:46 pm

I have the feeling that it is quite rare to find a nice quality video footage of a supercar that just blasts by the camera, no music, no added sound effects. Just pure natural engine sounds. All of that and given that the car starring in the video is 1980’s Lamborghini Countach LP400S makes one hell of a good car video. A quick look at the specs:

  • Engine: naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V12
  • Horsepower: 350 bhp (261 kW) @ 7500 rpm
  • Top Speed: 292 km/h (181 mph)
  • Acceleration 0-100 km/h: 5.9 seconds (0-62 mph)
  • Weight: 1 200 kg (2 646 lb)
  • Drivetrain: Rear wheel drive, 5 speed manual
