I would have liked less, but only if I got one of the less numbers!
Newer is almost always better, it will be a much better car to drive if it’s anything like the S, tough crowd, ring record, big loud V12 and jaw dropping looks. I couldn’t really have asked for more except free money with it, which is what people have been used to over the last few years!
I don’t see an issue with the number, currently the market is double what it used to be so all things remaining similar they would be fine for numbers retaining value. There is so many new dealers here it’s crazy. The problem is only if we move back to a market that we had 5-6 years ago when they came out and they actually were exclusive not because of numbers able to be produced, but the amount of buyers out there for them.
We have lived a lucky few years of cars not losing much compared to not that long ago, will it continue forever is anyone’s guess? I suspect it will continue for a while at least, there is a lot of money about in the world and finance is cheap.
Personally I wouldn’t buy a car of that value unless I was prepared to keep it for a few years and because I really wanted it (which I do) rather than it making money or being the latest shiny thing that everyone not just Lambo fans want. The market chasers that don’t even like cars but just want the car for show and then want out and into the next new thing is very bad for the brand and market and imo and also terrible as an owner profile, not so many years ago I would have bet I would like almost every Lambo owner I met, there was just something similar about them no matter race, colour or age now it’s probably 50:50. The world is changing and so is the brand, the numbers are just a reflection of that, if that’s a good or bad thing for the Lambo fans is open ended but it is certainly different in the last few years.
I also think the performante market is the most vulnerable should the market turn a bit.
