Lamborghini Murcielago Gets 200mph+ Targa-Style Roadster With AWD
Lamborghini of late has been milking every dollar it can from the aging Murcielago with one special edition after another, counting on the supersports coupe and roadster to continue to sell to its clientele until the eventual introduction of an all-new top bull.
The latest in the line, in a limited run of 50 units that are sure to sell immediately, is the quickest and most dramatic modern-day factory Lambo to date, the 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP 650-4 Roadster.
The new 650-4 features the most powerful engine in a drop top Lamborghini to date, a version of the company's ubiquitous V12 massaged out to 6.5 liters and 650 horsepower. As the "-4" extension indicates, the Murcielago LP560-4 Roadster carries permanent all wheel drive which should help to keep it on the road in the hands of drivers whose wallets outweigh their skill.
AWD helps the heavier roadster version of the Murcielago make it to 100 km/h from a standstill in 3.4 seconds, all the way up to a top speed of 205 mph. For comparison purposes, the 2WD standard-trim Murcielago Roadster takes 3.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h.
