Press Release :
Automobili Lamborghini has unveiled the Lamborghini MurciÃ©lago Roadster, a derivative of the MurciÃ©lago coupÃ©, at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show. Originally presented as a concept car at the Detroit Motor Show in 2003, the roadster version of the 200mph super car has already generated significant worldwide interest.
Continuing the tradition of Lamborghiniâs 12-cylinder roadsters, which have included the Miura and the Diablo, the MurciÃ©lago Roadster is a direct descendent of the coupÃ© version. Featuring the unmistakable Lamborghini styling, it harnesses the same power and speed, and delivers the same exceptional handling and safety features as the coupÃ©. Designed for open-top driving, it includes a manually fitted roof.
Production will commence in the second half of 2004, with first UK deliveries in spring 2005 and a list price circa Â£190,000. Dominic Lancaster, general manager of Lamborghini London says, âThe MurciÃ©lago is the ultimate performance car. The roadster has the aggressive good looks traditionally associated with both the MurciÃ©lago and the marque, but also adds a new dimension to the range. If the Lamborghini MurciÃ©lago is the fastest full production car currently available, then the MurciÃ©lago Roadster is the fastest open top sports car on the market. We look forward to having the Lamborghini MurciÃ©lago Roadster available alongside the coupÃ©, which also now includes the option of an e-gear transmission.â
The Lamborghini MurciÃ©lago 12-cylinder, 6.2 litre aluminium alloy engine produces 570 bhp at 7500 rpm, and 650 Nm torque (479 lb/ft) at 5400 rpm. The Lamborghini MurciÃ©lago can exceed 330 km/h (over 200 mph) and accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds.
