European pricing for the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster was released when the model was officially introduced early this week, but we had to wait a few extra days to see how much customers over here should expect to pay for the topless supercar. Now, Lamborghini has announced that US-bound versions of its new roadster will run $441,600, which doesn't include the $3,700 gas-guzzler tax, meaning the Aventador Roadster will wear a base MSRP of at least $445,300.

As a refresher, this new roadster is a topless version of the 700-horsepower, all-wheel-drive Aventador, and it features a two-piece removable top made of carbon fiber (each weighing in at around 13 pounds) that can be stored in the front trunk. Performance figures include a 0-60 time of under three seconds and a top speed of 217 miles per hour. Lamborghini is currently taking orders for the Aventador Roadster with the car set to go on sale next summer.

      Wow. That looks great. Sure, in many parts of the country you could buy a house for that - but as I was once told: You can sleep in a car, but you can't drive a house.

      Let's for one moment look at this from a practical standpoint because let's face it I would buy this no matter what if I had the money. The base coupe is $380,000 so how exactly is the roadster worth $60,000 more? I am just curious how they came up with that price or they just decided to just throw a number out there because it really did not matter, people were going to pay it anyway.

        I believe that convertibles are priced as a certain % higher than their coupe counterparts, regardless of whether that adds $1000 to the car or $100,000. That and making a supercar a convertible usually requires chassis modifications that normal cars let slide, while nowadays trying to minimize gained weight, make it look drop dead sexy top up or down, and on low production volumes, development costs are not diluted over large numbers of cars. Finally, the target audience for the Aventador Roadster definitely equate more money spent with "better". If the roadster cost less over the standard car (as if a Lamborghini could ever be standard) than adding carbon fiber cupholders, then it wont seem all that special.

      Here's what you do fellow Autobloggers: Buy A Corvette ZR1, pocket the $320,000, then you could buy: A fully loaded CTS-V, An XTS, Escalade and a Silverado fully loaded and have enough to invest in those vehicles or remodel your home. I can't believe how many of the idiots spend $450k on a car that gets handled by a $120,000 car. A fool and his money........

        You can apply the saying a fool and his money to the ZR1( unless you get a pre owned) as well

        You probably can't even imagine that there are people who make more money in one day than this car costs. There is no thrill for them to get a cheap car, there no sense of accomplishment. They buy expensive things to reward themselves, not because it's the best deal of the week.

        Yes. I'm sure you have that money and you have driven all the vehicles you've mentioned, which happen to be all GM products curiously enough. Bias much? I take it you've driven the Lambo and the roadster and did not feel its visceral dynamics.

          @ Ducman69 and maybe you're right, but I look at this car and engineering that's behind it and I'm captivated. I mean back in 80s, why buy the Countach when you could get a 'Vette? And don't take it the wrong way as I'm a huge admirer of the ZR1 and especially GT40, which are blue collar cars able to do things that only few supercars can do.

          When people have to justify things using buzz words like "visceral dynamics", you can be pretty sure they are full of ****. I'm sure this overblown Lambo quickly synergizes leading edge cross-platform technologies too. ;)

        Corvette ZR1: why spend $120,000 on a car that squeaks, rattles, and has the interior of a $12,000 car? And it's based on a $50,000 car that's 8 years old. Sure, it's awesome because it produces power like nobody's business and some racing drivers can beat exotics in it on tracks that you'd never go to. But, I can see why someone would want to get a ZR1 over an Aventador: 90% of the performance for 1/4 the price. But if you've got the money to splash on a Lamborghini, chances are you'd choose it over some blue collar sports car. Heck, buy both. But even if you do choose a ZR1 and keep $320k in Swiss bank accounts, why the hell would you then blow it all on shitty to mediocre all-GM products? A CTS-V is good, but chances are you already have a Rolls Royce and M5 chauffeur cars. The XTS: I don't know if 80 year old pensioners pining for their out of production DTS boats would be interested in also purchasing ZR1's, because they are the kind of people who want an XTS. Escalade: all of the rappers and drug dealers already have them, and even if you did buy that big behemoth, outdated dinosaur of an SUV, yours wont be a "legit" ride without 26" chrome tinted alloys. As for the Silverado, meh.

        To each his own. I love this car, but even if I had enough money to buy my own country, I can't see buying such an expensive car, I can't. I'd be perfectly happy with an ATS-V or CTS-V and a Corvette ZR1 as my weekend car. I could see renting a Ferrari or Lambo for the track or for a weekend but I can't see myself behind the wheel of one, even if I could afford it.

        The Murcielago, and all previous droptop V12 Lambos had the worst, most ghetto tent tops. But despite the fact that it is still manually operated, the simple 2 piece carbon panel on the Aventador is great. Watertight, and with the pieces in place, looks just like the coupe.

      This thing is sick, no doubt. But for that price, I can't help but think that will buy me a Carrera GT AND a new 991 S daily driver.

      Love it, just wish I would of won that powerball then I would own one, it's my dream car. I have wanted one since I was 10 years old.

      I'm 25 running my own business for a bit less than 2 years, and I got to the point where I can afford a Audi R8 right now, which is much more appealing ( in price ) to me. The R8 is about 150$k this is 450$k. Huge difference. I don' think there is any point in waiting. Seeing how Mercedes and BMW got nothing on the "supercar" front, I'd take an R8 over Lambo's offerings ( due to price mainly, not that R8 is bad looking or anything ).

        You are 25 and can afford Audi R8 - yeah right! You are 25 and are drooling at a thought of getting to own one of these, just like the rest of us. Be honest with yourself and with others.
