Lamborghini has just released the first official photos of the new Murciélago LP650-4 Roadster and as the name suggests, it’s more than just a drop-top version of the coupe. The coupe, (the LP640) makes 640h, whereas this roadster makes an additional 10 ponies for a total of 650hp.
The same 6.5-liter V12 engine is used, but has been tweaked for the additional power. Torque is rated at 487 ft-lbs.
Lamborghini claims the naturally-heavier roadster will still achieve an alarmingly fast 0-62 mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph.
To keep demand high, Lamborghini has decided to limit production of the new LP650-4 Roadster to just 50 units. All models will come with a Grigio Telesto grey exterior (as shown) with a bright orange Arancio color used for details like the front spoiler and side skirts.
The brake calipers will also be orange and at the rear of the car there is a clear engine cover to show off the massive V12 engine.
Inside the roadster gets some orange details as well as a unique split-down-the-middle two-tone color combo. The driver’s side comes with black Alcantara Nera and black leather Nero Preseus is used for the passenger’s side.
A graffiti-like LP650-4 logo appears on the side of the front bumper as well as on the air intake behind the driver.
