Lamborghini preparing Aventador Spyder for world debut at the Geneva Motor Show
We’ve all known for quite some time that Lamborghini was in the middle of developing a drop-top version of their latest supercar, the Aventador LP700-4. But what we didn’t know, at least until now, was when the Aventador Spyder was going to make its world debut. Well, according to a source that spoke to Teamspeed, the Italian automaker has already booked the dates for the Aventador Spyder’s grand unveiling at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show this coming March.
The standard Aventador is equipped with a powerful V12 engine producing 700 HP at 8,250 rpm and 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. This same powerhouse will be dropped into the Spyder, whose added soft top roof will pack on a few more pounds and slow down the performance figures just a tad. That translates into a 0-60mph sprint time a shade over the coupe’s 2.9 seconds.
To all of this we say: March certainly can’t come soon enough.
