Less than a week after the all-new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster was unveiled to the delight of future Lamborghini owners wanting wind shoved into their hair at an impressive rate of knots, Australian prices have been hinted at for the first time.

While the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster’s June 2013 US on-sale price of $445,000 was revealed last week, an Australian figure was as yet undisclosed.

Australian Lamborghini spokesperson Jessica Salmon today told CarAdvice, “We have been informed that the ballpark cost of the Roadster is approximately 11 per cent more than the coupe”.

This puts the lid-less Aventador’s figure at roughly $845,000 – more than $83,500 above the recently raised $761,500 price for the hardtop version.

As for deliveries, Salmon said the arrival of the first Australian Aventador Roadsters would be dependent on the submission of orders.

“Lamborghini expects a waiting list as production is limited, so the sooner an Australian customer submits an order, the sooner it will be delivered to Australia,” she said.

Lamborghini expects worldwide deliveries to start from March 2013, depending on where the first orders come in from.

The first Australian orders for the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster are yet to be confirmed.

    An eyeful, and for all the right reasons!

    It’s probably just me, but they seem to be in a bit of a styling rut. There’s nothing dramatic about about a car that looks pretty much the same as what they were putting out six years ago with a few more points and edges tacked on to it. I just think that Lamborghini and Aston Martin are leaving it a little bit long lately before they put out something fresh. I know it’s difficult to improve on perfection, but never the less, this is the job of a designer.

      Audi owns Lambo- say no more.

        At least now because audi do own lambo their air con systems work and have much better interiors

      What do you mean? The closest comparison for this Aventador is the Reventon, which wasn’t sold to the public. It looks nothing like the Gallardo or the Murcielago.

      I do agree the Sesto Elemento doesn’t look as good as the Aventador though.

      • Daniel

        It looks “nothing like” the Gallardo or Murcielago? Are you serious? That’s like saying the Audi A6 looks nothing like the Audi A4…

        • Sonic

          I agree with Dave. It really doesn’t look like a Murcielago… and it looks FAR different from the Gallardo. The only car this could be mistaken for is the Reventon Roadster. 

        • Dave W

          Put it this way… I can’t tell really one Audi sedan from another. I can however, easily tell which Lamborghini I’m looking at, and I’m not even a Lamborghini aficionado.

          • Wile E Coyote

            My point was in response to Daniel that the styling has not changed for six years which I commented was due to Audi ownership.Not that it looked like an Audi (der) only that Audi styling also does not change and therefore this design strategy is passed on by its owner.

          • Dave W

            I was replying to Daniel, mate. He also made a reference to Audi.

          • Daniel

            I didn’t bring Audi into it based on your comment. 

          • Dave W

            You replied to my comment saying,

            “…That’s like saying the Audi A6 looks nothing like the Audi A4…”

            So I said I can’t tell one Audi from another but I can tell what Lamborghini I’m looking at eventhough I’m not a Lambo aficionado.

          • Daniel

            I may have put my view across badly, but my point isn’t really that they look identical, I too without being a Lamborghini aficionado could tell them apart, it’s that they’ve been using the same styling cues, lines, general shape etc. for many years and over many cars now and it just isn’t that shocking anymore. I don’t know, they do still look good, maybe I’m just being pedantic. Or maybe we just disagree which is okay too :)

      Seen one on the road? They look a million times better than pictures.  Spotted a matte black one in Sydney CBD a while ago.  Jaw droppingly awesome.  It looked like Batman had stopped off for coffee.

        I was getting a “massage”

          Catwoman offers happy endings now? I’m there…

    Desperacy , hungar and poverty all around, really anyone who spends all that on a material object for self gratification needs to be defined by anything but a human, in my view

    • Amlohac

      They could spend the money on English lessons for you.

      If I had spare cash to fry I’d be in one of these things faster than I could take my next breath.

  • JamesB

    LCT at its finest…

    • Zaccy16

      Yeah exactly! double the price here than the US!

  • Peanut

    I can’t make up my mind what colour to buy, so I think I will order one in each colour.

    • Amlohac

      Considering you can get your own custom colour, you Mr Peanut could be the proud owner of many thousands of Lambo’s

  • Class and Style

    One makes money and spends it as one pleases. Are you insinuating that because there’s hunger around the world one shouldn’t go to restaurants or easy anything but a wholesome basic meal?
