The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4v roadster is the most extraordinary car in the company’s illustrious 50-year history, or so said the firm’s charismatic chairman, Stephan Winkelmann, at the car’s launch in Miami.Aventador Roadster is underpinned by a carbon-fiber chassis that teams with a number of other carbon and aluminum components throughout the car to keep weight down.

Power for the Aventador Roadster comes from a hand-built 6.5-liter twelve-cylinder engine tuned to deliver 690 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 507 foot-pounds of torque at 5,500 rpm. The prodigious amount of grunt is generated by pure displacement; there are no turbos or superchargers hiding anywhere in the engine bay. While Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann openly told me that turbocharged engines haven’t been ruled out for the upcoming Urus SUV, he hinted that Lamborghinisti shouldn’t expect the Aventador to follow the industry’s downsizing trend and adopt a turbocharged engine anytime soon.
