Aventador Roadsters Blast Down Miami Airport Runway

/ Comments

Open-top Aventadors stretch their legs down the runway as part of Lamborghini's semi-centennial celebrations.

As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, Lamborghini stormed one of Miami International Airport's runways with five Aventador Roadsters. With the Federal Aviation Administration's and Miami-Dade County's blessing, the quintet of supercars careered down the runway clocking speeds of 210 mph. That makes the LP700-4 Roadster the fastest vehicle ever driven on the tarmac, as planes normally don't take off beyond speeds of 180 mph.

A brief photo shoot with an American Airlines Boeing 777 preceded the high-speed demo, marking the companies' collaboration in the lightweight construction arena, while a parade of 50 Lamborghinis also took place in South Beach to kick-off a ten-day media launch in Miami.

The open-top variant of Lamborghini's flagship vehicle is powered by the same 700-horsepower, 6.5-liter V12 engine as the hard-top Aventador, capable of hitting 60 mph in less than three seconds and a top speed of 217 mph. The vehicle's removable top incorporates high-tech, lightweight carbon-fiber technologies, and weighs just under 12 kg (26 lbs.)
