The Lamborghini Reventon Roadster was revealed

Production of the Reventon Roadster is limited to just 20 cars
exactly two years after the hardtop version was released. Both cars made their public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show (Coupe in 2007, Roadster in 2009). Just like the Reventon coupe, the Roadster's styling was inspired by the angular and aggressive lines of modern fighter jets like the F-22 Raptor and F117A Stealth.

The lines of the Reventon Roadster are basically identical to that of the hardtop model. The only major differences are the obvious lack of a fixed roof, and a new engine cover which incorporates a unique 'spine' which runs down the centre.

The base bodyshell of the Reventón is already so stiff that the Roadster requires only minimal reinforcement to compensate for the lack of a roof. Like the Coupé, the cell of the Reventon Roadster is made from high-strength steel profile and carbon components joined with specialist adhesive and rivets. The bodyshell is made almost entirely from carbon fiber elements, with sheet steel used only for the outer door skins.

Powering the Lamborghini Reventon Roadster is the same 6.5 litre V12 engine from the coupe. This is good for a 3.4 seconds 0-60 mph time, and a top speed in excess of 200 mph. Two chains drive its four camshafts that, in turn, operate the 48 valves. Together with the three-phase adjustable intake manifold, the variable valve timing delivers a meaty torque build-up. Dry sump lubrication ensures that the hi-tech power unit has a constant supply of oil, even under heavy lateral acceleration.

The bodywork of the Reventon is formed from composite carbon fiber. This is then glued and riveted to the steel and carbon fibre construction chassis.
