Well, that happened quickly. The $441,600 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is, according to reports, already sold out in every market around the world until at least the middle of 2014.

Boasting a 6.5-liter V12 that churns out a heady 690 horsepower, there's little wondering why the cars are so popular. But with its finicky carbon fiber rooflet, $3,700 gas guzzler tax and and an MSRP that sits considerably higher than the hardtop version's price tag, the Aventador Roadster requires a very specific type of buyer. Lamborghini isn't saying how many of the new dropheads have been sold, but we're told hand raisers won't get their keys until mid-summer at the earliest.

If you need a refresher on what makes this particular Lamborghini worth nearly half a million dollars, you can check out the photos and videos from the machine's unveiling in Miami here.

      Poor pricing, eh? Should've jacked it up because now people are just going to shave off profit from the company by reselling them and pocketing the difference.

      good to know that the global economic recovery is going well for everyone, not just the little people.

      I'm just curious, all the new cars in the pictures are they delivered cars or cars that are going to new owners. If it were mine I wouldn't want anyone to put miles on it except myself.

      and many of them will never have more than 100 miles on them.

      Is it even worth noting the $3,700 gas guzzler tax when its less than 1% of the cost of the car? Alright all set to buy my $441,600 Aventador Roadster, now just to sign the ...wait a second, $3,700 gas guzzler tax, no freaking way! No sale!

      Nice to know the Upper class is prospering while everyone else is getting poorer. When will Lamborghini release a "Banker Edition"? They'll sell like hotcakes.

        My thoughts exactly. Supercars selling out in the midst of a recession? I guess those people just work WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY harder than everyone else.

        Why does this surprise you? The truly wealthy do not rely on salaries or being employed. Once you have wealth and manage it well, weathering a recession is far easier than for the rest of us.

          Recessions are actually profitable. While your money remains roughly the same considering what form its in, the value of most goods and services go down, enabling you to purchase more. Imagine if you weren't in real estate tis last go round and then pries dropped like a rock for land and luxury goods.

      I wonder- are these Lambos typically bought or leased? I imagine the rich poser douchebags who buy these cars just want to be seen in the lastest and greatest blingware. They are not going to put all that much mileage on the cars. There would be no particular reason for them to purchase these cars.

        Somebody is jealous and broke lol. Like seriously, stop being such a broke loser. It's their money to spend, not yours. It's a proven fact that people with money are better than you middle classed and poor people.

        They like to buy them just to annoy you :) I think most are probably bought for cash.
