Watch the topless Lamborghini Aventador go for a high-speed run on the Autobahn.
Over the last few weeks, we've seen several drivers with a need for speed taking their cars for a performance run on the quieter roads during the coronavirus crisis. In one of the most extreme cases, the owner of an Audi RS6 Avant recorded themselves hitting 202 mph on a UK highway while driving with only one hand on the steering wheel. Driving at these staggering speeds would usually result in a driving ban if you get caught.
In Germany, however, there are no speed limits on certain sections of the famous Autobahn. Seeing high-performance exotics being pushed to their limits at triple-digit speeds is a common sight - and that's exactly what the owner of this Lamborghini Aventador Roadster did.
Video footage shows the topless raging bull being taken for a top speed run on an unrestricted stretch of the famed German highway.
If you need a refresher, the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is powered by a naturally aspirated, 6.5-liter V12 producing 691 horsepower and 507 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission, With this setup and the accelerator welded to the floor, the Aventador Roadster has no trouble reaching 312 km/h on a clear stretch of Autobahn. And yes, the driver had the roof down for the entire run, which couldn't have been comfortable.
Not even the violent sound of the rushing wind can drown out the Aventador's aggressive-sounding 6.5-liter V12. It's an impressive run especially as the car looks remarkably stable at these speeds, but still falls slightly short of the convertible's 217-mph top speed.
Since the Aventador Roadster was discontinued in 2016, Lamborghini has unleashed the more powerful Aventador S Roadster that increases the output to 729 hp and 507 lb-ft of torque. If that's still not hardcore enough for you, Lamborghini extracted 759 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque from its 6.5-liter V12 in the Aventador SVJ Roadster, which is capped at just 800 units.
