Lamborghini Aventador Roadster could debut in 2012

Tired of hearing about the Lamborghini Aventador? Good – neither are we – but we’ll make this one short and sweet. Apparently, word on the street is that we will see a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster as early as next year.

Nothing has been confirmed by Lamborghini but we don’t expect to see a drop-top version of the Aventador until 2013. Why? Well, the Aventador’s predecessor, the Murcielago, made its debut in 2002. The Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster didn’t make its debut until two years later in 2004.

Stay tuned to see what happens.
