That car does NOTHING for me. Sorry. Too big and quite frankly ugly. I still love to win one though..............so I could sell it and buy an Elise, Exige, Evora, and Esprit with change left over.

It's actually a roadster not a convertible. The top is carbon fiber and comes in 2 pieces, one for above the driver and one above the passenger. It is stored in the front bonnet. Much easier to install and better looking that the top from the Murci roadster.

Angles are to minimize radar detection.

I have to disaggree - I quite like the Aventador design - it is the first Lambo since the Countach that I want in my garage.

Technically roadsters have no side glass so this is definitely a (fugly) convertible.

Just moved to Phoenix, anyone else here?

The front and sides of the Sesto look good, but WTF was Lambo thinking with the back? Who the hell wants the tranny exposed?! Sometimes I think that there's a car design movement going on that subscribes to "The uglier it is, the cooler and more cutting edge it will be perceived as". Whatever. I don't get it. Good thing I don't have a million plus to spend on the Sesto, huh?

The Murci top is a nightmare from what I have seen.

I like the Aventador. The last Lambo I really wanted was the Diablo roadster. The Gallardo and Murcielago are great but didn't move me like the Diablo.
