We cannot confirm their authenticity, but the pictures reveal an attractive convertible with a new decklid that is rumored to hide a folding metal roof.

Like the coupe, power will be provided by a 4.5-liter V8 engine with 570 PS (419 kW / 562 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which should enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in approximately 3.5 seconds.

If the rumors are correct, European deliveries will occur shortly after the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
