After we first brought you the leaked product presentation and amateur photos from a Geneva dealership, Lamborghini finally decided the time was right to officially reveal the new Limited Edition Lamborghini Murciélago LP650-4 Roadster.
The Limited Edition Lamborghini Murciélago LP650-4 Roadster comes along just in time for you fat cats to open up your wallets again. Lamborghini is hoping that the draw of the 650 horsepower from an uprated 6.5-liter V12,486 Lb-Ft of torque, 0-62 time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph will help to distract you from the god-awful Grigio Telesto (grey) and Arancio (orange) mixed exterior.
Significant identifying features of the 50-unit limited edition besides the paint are the LP 650-4 logo applied to the side of the front fascia and also on the retractable air intakes, a transparent engine cover and the lack of a roof. Hop inside and you'll find an Alcantara wrapped interior featuring matching orange bits on the paddle shifters, e-gear selector plate and stitching throughout.
We're always impressed by the sheer machismo of the Lamborghini set, but this one just screams 'Coke Binge: Day 2' to us. Verde Ithaca would have been a much better hue for this very special edition. No price is given, but as the saying goes, if you have to ask...
Lamborghini Press Release:
Automobili Lamborghini has released the first photographs of a limited edition Lamborghini Murciélago LP650-4 Roadster. The Roadster version of the Murciélago will offer an uprated 6.5 litre V12 engine that produces 650 hp (478 kW) along with permanent four-wheel drive: hence the model's LP 650-4 moniker. With 660 Nm of torque, top performance is at 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 3.4 seconds. The top speed is around 330 Km/h (205mph).
The special edition model will be produced in a limited volume (50 units only), with a Grigio Telesto exterior that combines grey bodywork with a special bright orange Arancio LP 650-4 featured on the front spoiler and sills. The LP 650-4 logo applied to the car's exterior is recognition of the car's increased power. The car features orange brake calipers and a transparent V12-engine cover, which shows off the V12 engine behind the driver.
Interior features echo the car's striking grey-and-orange exterior: besides the orange touches, there is an asymmetric dash design, with black Alcantara Nera on the driver's side, including door panel and central tunnel, and black leather Nero Perseus on the passenger's side.
The increased power of the Murciélago engine, from 640 to 650 hp, will be unique to the Lamborghini Murciélago LP650-4 Roadster: it demonstrates even further the developments that Lamborghini is able to offer from a current engine, and creates the exclusive characteristic of the Lamborghini Murciélago LP650-4 Roadster.
