Watch how to install the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster roof [video]

Mounting the twin carbon fiber roof panels.

Lamborghini unveiled the Aventador Roadster yesterday in Miami and showed how to install the carbon fiber roof.

The procedure is now simpler in comparison to the Murcielago Roadster and it takes significantly less time to mount the twin carbon fiber roof panels which each weigh 13.2 lbs (6 kg). When not in use these are stored in the front trunk, while putting them on is done with a few latches.

The Lamborghini Aventador Roadster has the coupe’s V12 6.5-liter normally-aspirated engine and sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).

Full details are found in the related link below.

I'm just your down to Earth with a second hand Audi and a BMW, but I knew some of the Lambo and Ferrari Owners. They are not these labor fearing rich snobs. They are down to earth guys, that can probably install your Garbage Disposal with no sweat. There's one thing about them - they like cars - not the Escalates or Rolls with 24's, they appreciate my BMW as much as their new Lambo. The people you guys are describing dont buy a Lambo Roadster, they buy cars with an analysis not with a heart -- it will make no sense to even consider a Lambo or a Ferrari, specially a convertible one.

Listen, it's an incredibly sexy car, true to the lunacy of Lambos. But frankly, for half a million dollars I don't think one should have to do this clumsy, multi-process job. I'd take the 458 Spyder any day AND keep the change for a Novitec kit when it comes out.

The drivers have their butler, bodyguard, secretary or sugar girl to assemble or disassemble it for them.

Really,,, I mean really? This is terrible and just plain stupid. I know I'm not the demographic for this car but if I had the bank, then I would consider the Aventador, it's a great car and just makes everyone, most everyone, smile. But this is stupid. I can hear it now, trust fund babies bitching about how hard it is to put up the roof and how much physical labor it takes. Sad part is that they will be right but still, S.T,F,U.

Catered to a real small niche market, rich people who live in very predictable weather environment that won't mind looking like a roof mechanic if they ever consider popping the top on/off on the go.

Go home Aventador roadster.. you're drunk!.. no but seriously, i was hoping they would somehow fashion the same "top" as the Agera R. just a one piece that pops on top. this does seem quite annoying to assemble.

Both cars you mention are front engine vehicles, gets a little more tricky with mid engine cars. Look at the 458 Spider and MP4 Spider, they've managed to do it but they've become more like targa tops then true convertibles with their high C pillar design. Personally, I think this is one of the most stunning designs and like someone mention, those of us who own exotics only drive them when the weather is predictable anyway for the most part.
