Reviews of the 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster were both positive and negative in some respects. The elongated scissors doors were praised for their sensual appeal. The convertible top, though, was called a “toupee” by Car and Driver, who felt it was a flimsy canvas sheet. In effect, the magazine felt a roadster with this lineage deserved something more substantial than flimsy poles and a fold-out roof.
Among the new exterior features were new windshield wipers and available Hermera alloy wheels. To ensure better handling for the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster a speed-sensitive two-stage rear spoiler is standard equipment.
The asymmetrical lines of the exterior carry forth into the cabin of the Lambo Murcielago LP640 Roadster. There is a special emphasis on meeting the needs of the driver first.

The engine, suspensions, gearbox, exhaust system, brakes and electronics of the Lambo Murcielago LP640 Roadster have been a special focus of the designers and engineers. All of their efforts have come together to create the fastest sports car in its class.
