Lamborghini unveils Roadster version of its Aventador sportscar

Lamborghini has unveiled the Roadster version of its Aventador speedster, which generates 700hp and boasts similar performance specs as the model it is based on, but adds a removable carbon fiber roof.

Based on the Aventador coupe that was launched in the summer of 2011, this new version boasts a removable roof made of two separate parts and weighing in at less than 6kg.

The back of the car shelters a V12 6.5l engine that delivers the same type of performance as the original: the speedster can reach 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds (versus 2.9s for the original) and a top speed of 350 km/h. It is also the first Lamborghini supercar to integrate the Stop & Start system.

The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster will be available in a range of colors, including the brand new "Azzuro Thetis" theme. It will sell with either 20- or 21-inch rims.

It is already available to order on the carmaker's website, from €300,000 (before tax).

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
