So, how often do you find yourself strapped into a great roadster, ready for an entertaining afternoon, glance down at the speedo that indicates 225, and find a highlighted warning area that begins at 190. ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY MILES PER HOUR is where you should start thinking seriously about what you are up to. Assuming you can even move your eyes to glance at the thing at that speed. Oddly enough, you can—one supposes. Lamborghini’s LP640 Roadster will indicate 160 so quickly and effortlessly—and massive 380 mm brakes at all four corners take you back to a more sedate 120 so suddenly—that 190 can’t be that much different. Only time and space, which you will be consuming in great gulps, would prevent that approach to the once-mythical 200. One might consider trying it on a calm day with light traffic.
This is not the intimidating, relatively unsophisticated, mega-rocket of Lamborghini’s supercar past. This is a fully developed modern automobile quite capable of using everything it can deliver in relative safety—and comfort.
