Today 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. With special authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration (F.A.A.) and Miami-Dade County the Lamborghinis, for the first time ever, exceeded the passenger airliner takeoff speed on a runway which is between 150 mph and 180 mph. No current jet aircraft reaches 210 mph on the ground, the clocked speed of the 700-horsepower vehicles during the closed-course drive demonstration.

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. Due to integrated planning on behalf of Miami-Dade officials and the FAA, there was no impact on flight arrivals and departures.

Today’s event, the kick-off of a 10-day media launch and dealer education program, began with an unveiling press conference in Lummus Park at Miami Beach. The ceremonies continued with a 50-vehicle parade down Collins Avenue in South Beach before culminating in the runway drive. Lamborghini executives hosting the press conference included Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., as well as Maurizio Reggiani, Director of R&D, Raffaello Porro, Director Communications and External Relations, and Filippo Perini, chief designer.

“It has been a great pleasure to work with the Miami-Dade Aviation Department and South Beach teams on today’s amazing demonstrations. I have never seen something similar at a Lamborghini event,”said Stephan Winkelmann. “The Aventador Roadster is our most exciting production car ever and I can think of no better place to celebrate its launch than here in Miami.”

The Aventador Roadster is the newest open-top version of Lamborghini’s flagship vehicle. With a 700-horsepower, 6.5-liter V12 engine, the Aventador Roadster reaches 60 mph in less than three seconds and boasts a top speed of 217 mph. The vehicle’s removable top features high-tech, lightweight carbon fiber technologies to achieve a low weight of just 26 pounds.

“Lamborghini is a forward-thinking brand, and today’s event on our runway was an all-around success,”said Ken Pyatt, Miami-Dade Deputy Aviation Director. “Both our organizations are focused on efficient performance and providing our customers with innovations.”
