Frankfurt show: Lambo Reventon Roadster

There have been many extreme cars in Lamborghini's history. But this, say Lambo bosses, is the most mental of the bunch. This is the Reventon Roadster.

The drop-top version of the jet fighter-inspired hypercar has just been unveiled on Lamborghini's show stand, and it looks, in a word, awesome.

It'll be limited to just 20 units - of which Lamborghini says a dozen or so have already been sold - at a cost of £970,000 each.

That's a lot of cash, but you do get a lot of power: like the hard-top, the Roadster is powered by Lambo's 6.5-litre V12, putting out 661bhp and catapulting the Reventon to 62mph in 3.4 seconds. Top speed? A terrifying 205mph. With the roof down.

The Roadster weighs in just 25kg heavier than the coupe, and features a pair of hidden pop-up rollbars, which will deploy if you're daft enough to test the Reventon's aerial capabilities.

If you're in the market for a million-odd-quid convertible - and we know that many of you are - what's it going to be? This... or the Veyron Grandsport

Now share it...
