For weeks, details of the Murcielago LP 650-4 Roadster have been oozing out of Lamborghini headquarters like bourbon from Nick Nolte's pores. Apparently, someone in Sant'Agata Bolognese finally got the picture and sent out a press release--you know, just to make things official.

As expected the LP 650-4 will be a monster. The 6.5-liter V12 will crank out 650hp (didn't see that coming, did you?) and hit 60mph in around 3.4 seconds. It'll top out just over 200mph. The design is a curious gray/orange combo, which reads as "understated elegance" or "80s flashback", depending on your point of view (and age).

Our fave line of the release? "The LP 650-4 logo applied to the car’s exterior is recognition of the car’s increased power." Sounds a little grand, but whatever: it's Lamborghini, they can write what the hell they want.

The LP 650-4 will be produced in a limited run of 50, so if you still have a bank account--the kind with money in it--haul out the checkbook now.
