Italian hypercar maker Lamborghini or The Raging Bull as its called launched the Aventador Roadster in India today at an event held at Lamborghini's Mumbai dealership this afternoon. The car was unveiled by Mr. Andrea Baldi Sales Manager for South Asia & Pacific, Mr Pawan Shetty Head of Operations Lamborghini India and Mr Mohan Mariwala, M.D of Lamborghini Mumbai.

The Roadster's design is easily recognised by the unique profile of its upper area which extends along newly designed geometric lines from the removable roof to engine hood. The two piece rood is made entirely from carbon fiber using various technologies such as RTM and Forged Composite. Each component weighs less than 6 kg but still has maximum stiffness

The Roadster does the 0 to 100 kph dash in 3 seconds. The Coupe does it in 2.9 and top speed is 350 kmph with either top up or down.

The moster 6.5 liter engine and 700 hp remains

The price? A cool 4.77 crore (Ex Showroom Delhi)

Want one? Deliveries start mid 2013 and bookings should start in February.

Enjoy the pictures

Looks like F22's cousin built for road! But I guess pricing is TOOOOOOO MUCHHHHH! If it was arround 2.2-2.7 carores was correct! I mean Audi R8 Spider, which is almost similar (of course with arround 175 hp less) costs 1.48 carores! & this one costs too much in comparision! But again, this is india & you cant guess people's mind! I was shocked to death when I here that it's over-booked!

The Aventador itself looks absolutely stunning! The convertible version takes it even further, its just so sublime! I am going to be a tad adventurous and say this might just be the best looking car on sale everywhere today.

Atleast the Aventador is from another league. A V12 , a lot more power and torque and a whole second quicker to the ton and so on. Oh and did i mention ?...ITS A LAMBO :P

Lets compare the like-hearted siblings here. The R8 v10 and the Gallardo share absolute identical units in identical states of tune. Yet the r8 spyder costs as much as you mentioned and the gallardo costs double that. So similar performance for half the price. Technically then people shouldnt buy gallardos at all right ?

The scene in Mumbai seems different. There might be as many gallardos as r8 v10's if not more. End of the day it comes down to sheer snob value and exotic-ness. Yes an R8 v10 can surely hold its own against the SLS's and 911's of the world but the Bulls and the Horses are just different. Im sure youl agree :)

On another note, after seeing this i wonder why would anyone ever want to buy an Aston Martin Vanquish ? A new car with an OLD v12 FORD engine and much much heavier with a 4.1 to 100 timing. The Vanquish is also dearer than the Aventador !

Obsolete is the word ! Silly Aston !
