Lamborghini Murcielago Barchetta

Front Left View

Seemingly unchanged from its concept-car debut at last year's Detroit show, the production version of Lamborghini's Murciélago Barchetta showed up in Geneva looking appropriately batty, with a sinister black paint job, angular farings behind the seats, and those amazing pop-up air intakes on it haunches. The newest addition to the growing Lambo family packs the same, 571-horsepower 6.2-liter V-12 as the coupe, paired with a six-speed manual gearbox and permanent all-wheel drive. Expect the Barchetta to pretty much match the closed car's performance figures—less than four seconds to 60 mph and a top speed close to 200 mph. One particularly cool feature: Despite its rooflessness, the Barchetta's doors still open in the tradmark scissors fashion.
