Yesterday at Miami International Airport five new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadsters sped down the south runway of the busiest U.S. airport for international flights.
The special event was authorized by Federal Aviation Administration and Miami-Dade County. These five new Lamborghinis, for the first time ever, exceeded the passenger airliner takeoff speed on a runway which is between 150 mph and 180 mph. The Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster was clocked at 210mph.
Prior to the high speed demonstration, the Lamborghinis were joined by an American Airlines Boeing 777 and lined-up for a photo shoot on the runway. Later on the event continued with a 50-vehicle parade down Collins Avenue in South Beach.
The Aventador Roadster is powered by a 700-horsepower, 6.5-litre V12 engine, enabling it to reach 0-60 mph in less than three seconds, while the top speed
is 217 mph.
