Lamborghini Murcielago LP 650-4 Roadster: First Official Photos

Lamborghini Murcielago LP 650-4 Roadster: First Official Photos

Lamborghini has released official photographs of the limited edition Murcielago LP 650-4 Roadster that we first got the chance to see through a set of leaked presentations sheets just before the Geneva Motor Show. To be produced in a limited run of just 50 units, the Roadster version of the Murcielago comes with permanent four-wheel drive and is powered by an uprated 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 650HP (+10HP) and 660 Nm (486.8 lbs) of torque - hence the model's LP 650-4 moniker.

The Italian firm claims that the special edition version of the Murcielago Roadster can sprint from 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph) in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of around 330 Km/h (205mph).

On the outside, the Murcielago LP 650-4 Roadster is finished in a Grigio Telesto paint that combines grey bodywork with special bright orange "Arancio LP 650-4" detailing on the front spoiler and sills. The car also features orange brake calipers and a transparent V12-engine cover.

Open up the characteristic Lambo doors and you'll find a theme that echoes the car's grey-and-orange exterior along with 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.

More details including pricing are expected to be announced at a later date.
