Lamborghini has launched its Aventador Roadster in India for a price of Rs 4.77 crore ex-showroom Delhi. One of the most powerful and desirable supercars in the world, the Aventador LP 700-4 is has a 6.5 liter 12 cylinder engine with 700PS of Italian firepower. The naturally aspirated engine also dishes out 690 Nm of raw, unadulterated torque. Together, those figures are capable of propelling this exotic from 0-100 km/h in a mere 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 350km/h.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster is considered the most exciting series production Lamborghini ever built. The coupe version was introduced in summer 2011, and over 1,300 units of the car have already been delivered to customers globally. 2013 also marks the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini, the presentation of Aventador Roadster is a perfect beginning to this year in India.
The two-piece roof of the Aventador Roadster is made entirely from carbon fiber using various technologies such as RTM and Forged Composite. These technologies guarantee maximum aesthetic performance and stiffness although each component is extremely light, weighing less than 6 kg. On the inside, the use of leather called Sabbia Nefertem highlights the superb hand-made craftsmanship of the upholstery.
The new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster also features new Dione 20”/21” rims crafted in light forged aluminum. They lower the weight of the vehicle by 10 Kg as compared with the standard set of rims.
In 2012, Lamborghini India maintained a good growth momentum with a 21% increase in sales. Worldwide deliveries of Lamborghini to customers in 2012 also grew by 30% to a figure of 2,083 units.
The new Roadster will go on sale from mid 2013 at Lamborghini dealers nationwide.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Andrea Baldi, Sales Manager, South East Asia & Pacific, said: “I am confident about the success of the Aventador Roadster on Indian roads. India is slowly accepting the super cars as a mode to realise aspirations and we are hopeful of the success we can achieve here. We believe that our portfolio of legendary supercars has what it takes to satisfy the discerning Indian market.”
Mr. Pavan Shetty, Head of Operations, Lamborghini India said, “The luxury car market in India has seen a fair amount of growth in the last few years and continues to grow at a significant rate each year. The emphasis has shifted from pure price consideration and affordability to design, quality and pleasure.
