This is the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, an open-top version of Lamborghini's range-topping supercar. It's available to order now, with first deliveries expected in summer 2013.

The Aventador Roadster uses the same 691bhp 6.5-litre V12 engine as the coupe. Four-wheel drive and a seven-speed paddle-shift transmission are standard; the Roadster's 0-62mph time is just 0.1 seconds slower than the coupe's, at 3.0 seconds.

Most of the Aventador Roadster's bodywork is shared with the coupe version, but it has a new engine cover and a gloss black finish for the windscreen surround, roof and part of the rear window area.

The removable two-piece roof is made from carbonfibre, and can be stored in the front luggage compartment.

Lamborghini hasn't announced UK prices, but in Europe the Aventador Roadster costs €300,000 before taxes, which should translate to a UK price of around £300,000.
