Lamborghini's Murcielago Roadster becomes Australia's most expensive convertible

16 Feb 2005

LAMBORGHINI used the Brisbane show to launch the new Murcielago Roadster, which is now officially Australia’s most expensive convertible.

Priced at $669,000 in six-speed manual guise (or $687,705 on-road), just nine examples of the new Roadster will be available here in 2005 – up from the expected seven, with four heading to Sydney, three to Melbourne and two Queensland-bound examples already sold.

Powered by a 426kW/650Nm 6.2-litre V12 and featuring automatic rollover hoops and scissor doors, Murcielago Roadster is good for claimed 0-100km/h acceleration in a motorcycle-like 3.8 seconds, along with a top speed of 330km/h.

Lamborghini’s E-gear transmission is the most expensive option at a staggering $26,197, with a carbon-fibre bonnet costing an extra $15,353, a carbon-fibre engine frame costing $10,746, a wind deflector priced at $4590 and coloured brake callipers setting well-heeled customers back $2294.

Murcielago Roadster joins Murcielago coupe ($616,856 on road) and the more compact, V10-powered Gallardo coupe ($413,878 on road) on sale in Australia, the latter model accounting for the bulk of Lamborghini’s expected sales volume of 45 vehicles in 2005 – up from last year’s record of 39.

Lamborghini Australia chief Andrew Smith confirmed in Brisbane that further evolutions of the Murcielago will go on sale in Australia in 2007, including a new front-engined, four-seater model for the first time.
