It’s no secret that Lambo has huge plans for its 50th anniversary and that the Aventador is due to lose its top in the U.S. market… officially. The Italian automaker decided why not just kick them both off at the same time, which it did today in Miami and we were there to witness it all.

The day kicked off at noon today in Miami, and began with a press conference across from the Breakwater Hotel and a 40-car parade down Collins Avenue. During the press conference, Lambo unveiled the much-anticipated Aventador LP700-4 Roadster to us media folk and it was definitely worth the wait. Have a look at our collection of images and you can see just how sexy the car really is.

On top of the official unveiling of the drop-top supercar, Lambo also satisfied our appetite for some speed. It accomplished this feat by closing off a runway at the Miami International Airport – the first time MIA has ever close a runway for an automotive event – to allow 12 Aventadors to run wild down the long straight stretch, peaking out at over 180 mph.

What a phenomenal showing by Lambo.

For those who like celebrities, the Driver of the car is Mario Fasanetto, the official Lamborghini test driver replacing the famous and now retired Valentino Balboni. I tried to grill him on what he was currently driving at work.. but he remained tight lipped, I tried !

I think the Aventador LP700-4 Roadster looks very unique and strange. I like the orange and the olive green colors of this car. The colors seem more impressive compared to the blue color.

However I think a dark color and a matte finish would be an asset.

It should be appreciated how this car can be so appealing although it is very square outlined. I usually like those with curves.

The airport ran out of money or simply they made them ​​an offer that could not be refused? smiley))

Looks very ... sharky. But that, I think, is very good, it individualizes them.
