2004 Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster

Automobili Lamborghini has unveiled the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster, a derivative of the Murcielago coupe, 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 Lamborghini’s 12-cylinder roadsters, which have included the Miura and the Diablo, the Murcielago Roadster is a direct descendent of the coupe version. Featuring the unmistakable Lamborghini styling, it harnesses the same power and speed, and delivers the same exceptional handling and safety features as the coupé. 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.
