The Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster benefits from the same extensive modifications to the bodywork and mechanics as the LP640 Coupé, as well as delivering its own distinct character. As with the Coupé, the designers of the Lamborghini Centro Stile have remained true to the original style principles of purism, sportiness and functionality. Like the Coupé it has now assumed a more aggressive appearance.
The asymmetrical design of the car’s sides externally is echoed internally: from its forerunner, the Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster has inherited the characteristic asymmetrical interior arrangement. The whole interior is tailored to the driver and arranged in such a way that a true driver-focused experience is offered; a car which challenges yet at the same time is entirely geared to the driver.
This is illustrated in the use of perforated leather for the chair cushions, the dashboard tunnel console and the door lining on the driver’s side. Changes to the rear-view mirror make the Murciélago Roadster more aerodynamic, with other features including new windscreen wipers and the option of new Hermera alloy wheels.
Like its predecessor, the Murciélago LP640 Roadster can be customised through special equipment packages. The ‘Ad Personam’ individualisation program offers even more scope to create a personal, unmistakeably individual sports car.
As with the Coupé the new 6.5 litre (6.496 cm3) 60° V-engine and 640 ps (471 kW) at 8,000 min-1 is now used also in the Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster. At 6,000 min-1 the 12-cylinder engine reaches the maximum torque of 660 Nm. Naturally the Lamborghini Murciélago meets all the current valid European and North American emission standards.
