Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 RoadsterEnlarge Photo
It may not be on display at the show, but Lamborghini's announced its new Aventador Roadster in sync with the L.A. show. The two-piece removable roof is made from carbon fiber and weighs 13 pounds; it required the Aventador's rear pillar to be redesigned. A powered rear windshield is also fitted and can be lowered or raised depending on how much sound the driver wants in the cabin. No changes to the drivetrain were made, so the V-12 is still rated at 691 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque, and it still powers all four wheels via Lamborghini’s unique Independent Shifting Rod automated manual transmission with seven forward gears. Lamborghini estimates a 0-60 mph time of 3.0 seconds flat and a top speed of 217 mph.
