Snapped as the sun was setting in Northern Sweden, the picture quality isn’t the best. And being February in Northern Sweden, the top is most certainly not down. As for that top, it appears to be a single removable piece, rather than a hard-to-operate material one like on the Murcielago Roadster. It’s likely that the removable section will be made of carbon fiber.
Sharing the same 700-hp 6.5-liter V12 engine as the coupe and a carbon fiber frame, the real question will be if this open-top supercar will be able to avoid the weight gain normally required to stiffen the chassis. If it is, look for a similar 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds, although we do expect the top speed to be slightly less than the coupe’s incredible 217 mph rating.
