Lamborghini's luxury super-coupe is getting a droptop version, the Aventador LP700-4 Roadster. It should be just as fast as its sibling: The convertible borrows the coupe's 700-horsepower, 6.5-liter V-12. Lamborghini says it's good for a zero-to-62-mph run in three seconds and a top speed of 217 mph.
The Roadster uses a two-piece Targa-like top made of carbon fiber. The automaker says each weighs just 13 pounds, and the pieces can be stowed in the front luggage compartment. It also sports 20-inch forged aluminum rims in front and 21-inchers in the rear.
The Aventador coupe was introduced in the summer 2011; the convertible will make its public debut at the Geneva International Motor Show next March. The Aventador LP700-4 Roadster starts at 300,000 euro, or $381,600 at today's exchange rate.
