Lamborghini drops the top on the uber-exclusive 2017 Centenario Roadster

Only 20 very lucky (and very loaded) buyers will be able to experience over 218 mph winds though their hair behind the wheel of the 2017 Lamborghini Centenario Roadster LP770-4.

Much like the that we saw debut in Geneva earlier this year, the Lambo Centenario Roadster is extremely expensive and extremely exclusive.

Every good hypercar deserves a roadster variant, so I think we all saw this coming. The new model adds a removable roof panel to the Centenario's excessive formula.

Only 20 Roadsters will be built and sold for $2.2 million each. Before you reach for your wallet, you should know that all of them were sold before even the unveiling.

The Centenario Roadster was built as part of a celebration of Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th birthday.

It's powered by a naturally aspirated, 6.5-liter V-12 engine that produces 759 horsepower (770 PS) and 508 pound-feet of torque.

Power reaches all four corners via a seven-speed ISR gearbox and a Haldex all-wheel-drive system.

Unlike the Centenario that we saw in Geneva, the Roadster covers up much of is carbon fiber bodywork with paint.

Make no mistake, the Roadster uses as much lightweight carbon fiber as the Coupe. You'll find the material peeking out all over, even on the wheels.

With a body built entirely from carbon fiber -- from the monocoque to the body panels and trims bits -- the fixed-roof Centenario shaved about 121 pounds when compared with the Aventador. Expect similar weight savings from the Roadster.

You can also expect similar performance. Zero to 62 mph (100 kph) in just 2.8 seconds. We're not sure how the Roadster's top speed will differ from the coupe's, which is already nebulously defined as "somewhere above 218 mph."
