  1. Actually looking at th configurator if you take style pack in body colour the front becomes better, still not classically beautiful as it should be but nice enough
  2. Back now good but front bad, opposite of Huracan
  3. Extended wheelbase ghost maybe, same with phantoms as they offer them in both as well

    Aventador replacement

    Tbh all they needed to do was put dct and DFI in the current design and a tech update and they would be good for a few years more, still looks pretty fresh

    Aventador SV-J Discussion and New Information

    To be clear all Lamborghini marketing states 900 coupe, I do wonder if they backtrack and say that’s the coupe and roadsters and then the 63 cars are extra, coupe and roadsters to fill the gap, that would be a lot better number for a car as expensive as they are, with something better coming around the corner

    Urus v Bentley!

    Just to add Bentayga, is very spec specific, needs styling kit, black pack and sports exhaust or it will feel and look a bit ordinary imo. The factory sport exhaust really makes the car feel and sound a lot more special, akrapovic is now the supplier for Bentley factory exhausts. Urus there is a load more versions coming out so I would only buy used. Unless you wait for the next version which won’t be that long.

    Aventador SV-J Discussion and New Information

    Not quite true, they couldn’t sell al the 670 hence the low number. There will be as many as they can plausibly sell, US may be fine but most markets are struggling, which may be why the possibly revised numbers rather than say we can’t sell them and quite a few people are waiting for the new model. Given time if a market is strong I would Imagine everyone that wants one will get one and without publicity and confirmed exact numbers. IMO

    Urus v Bentley!

    I’ve driven both and would take a Bentayga over Urus for every day (not the diesel though, feels it missing something although good for a diesel) much nicer place to sit and a more relaxed drive style with a lot of grunt if you need. Which you prefer will be personal, I wouldn’t want a Urus as a daily car, feels cheap inside, lower driving position and worse visibility but it handles better but that’s not really that much of a consideration for me unless you use it as a sports car. More interestingly they will be in a depreciation race, pretty much nothing will lose money quicker than a new one of these, so go in with eyes open. Land Rover is worse in every way except standard tech on a good model and price, they are a great compromise for the money by comparison. Probably no better daily car really for the amount they are. I started to get annoyed with the amount of money I was burning on expensive daily cars such as Bentleys as I’d just don’t get the joy out of them I do from sportscrars, they are lovely and if you are on an unlimited budget great but otherwise I would get something a bit cheaper and save the really good stuff as sports cars that will,make you feel,and drive special, but that’s me. Think I might be getting old an sensible though!

    Catalyst overheat warning

    Any ideas what would cause this, never seen it before. Just cruising on the highway at 70-100 mph not hard use or accelerations, etc. Get that warning and total loss of power, stayed on for about 30 secs. Limped to the next exit, pulled over turned car off for 5 mins now all seems fine. Going to send back to the dealer but should i be worried? Also whilst talking problems here is a couple more if people have thoughts, very irritating: Brake pedal goes totally hard, almost unuesable hard, as in you cant press it in enough to get the car to start if you leave it unused for about a week, ok if less than that. As soon as car starts goes soft again. From cold start, misfire sounds like not running on all cylinders & runs real rough and not wanting to start even if used the day before. Turn it off and back on again immediately and it starts fine.

    Catalyst overheat warning

    Either a dodgy catalyst sensor or exhaust valve stuck closed I reckon, the start stop fault is usually a exhaust valve issue of some sort either stick open or closed.

    Going to Dubai then the Maldives

    I doubt you will see many cars there randomly unless there is an event on, there is a lot less supercars in Dubai than say London You could go to Ferrari world and buy some socks and gloves! When are you out there? I'm heading there soon for Christmas, of which they make an excellent effort, very christmassy. Could do drinks if you are around, I'm staying at Burj Al Arab

    Aventador SV-J Discussion and New Information

    Not enough swearing boys, the old LP would definitely have had handbags at dawn. Well measured response VCR, have to say i don’t get most of what Novolari posts generally, apart from th odd interesting fact, I find the style generally confrontational even when he seems to be trying to be nice, maybe that’s just the internet for you. Why did fortis leave? I missed that.
  14. Have a deposit down, not heard a thing though, I would be very surprised if it is released this soon after performante spyder. I usually get cars about 3 months after the1st customers arrive and have to spec 3 months in advance of that, not been asked for more money either which you usually are just before cars are released here to confirm your interest I hope it is a more exciting drive than Huracan

    Delivery Miles on New Huracan Performante

    US ones must get road tested again after shipping, the Euro cars all have 23 or 27 miles on them (can’t remember which it is) which is the length of the normal Lamborghini road test at the factory before shipping. All my cars have always turned up with exactly the same mileage.

    Drove the Urus Today

    If you have one car for everything I can see it but Bentayga is a better everyday car imo if you have other sports cars, but I guess it depends what you want in a car. I prefer relaxed with a lot of grunt for normal use, urus is not as comfy or as nicer place to be. If you want to use it hard then fair enough but most people will just tootle along most days and never use any of its abilities over any reasonably quick suv and sacrificing other areas for that

    Thoughts on Aventador vs Aventador S

    S is more of an all rounder as easier on the driver to be comfortable with, SV is more Special but harder work, more of a sensory thing, stupidly hard suspension noisy rattely cabin with all the carbon and rough ride and steering by comparison. Guess you would call it raw or more old fashioned, SV makes you feel like you are in something unbelievable from the second you sit in it because its not an easy car, S is the same compared to a normal car just not compared to an SV, in reality the S is a better car the SV is exactly what it was supposed to be a road compromised more hardcore track version, but it is cooler.

    Lambo Power is Going Social!

    Maybe create an additional private version on Instagram (as it’s probably the biggest most used channel now) and repost stuff from actual verified members rather than the general public so they can interact with just owners and members on pics, etc. I can can see you already have a load of random followers straight away, if it’s just for announcements fine, but if you want interaction I don’t want to read 1000 comments from kids saying wow before comments from actual members.

    Drove the Urus Today

    I actually agree with some of that, wanted to love it but it’s just a 4x4 that defies physics rather than a sports or supercar it claims to be. Non dramatic speed in any mode and not interesting Not really different to a fast cayenne I think the interior is really cheap looking also for a very expensive car If if they put arch extensions on it at least it would look the part, but it’s just too Audi looking, take the badge off it and you would never guess it’s a Lamborghini.
  21. Spoiler looks rubbish and high exhaust looks wrong without a wing , unbalances the look towards the centre other than that bumpers look mean. maybe the camo off will change the proportions though I ordered one a while back but will only take it if it drives more like performante than Huracan which I didn’t like as felt too easy and not special enough when inside

    Video: Supercars of London LP640 Project

    London if fine, never had a problem, just not all that enjoyable sitting in traffic. Think if you are used to space and quieter traffic it would probably be scary. Went to Portafino last year with a group of Aventadors as a stop, now that was fxxking scary on the miniature roads!

    Bring the old site back

    How do I see all content rather than just new stuff, as if I want to go back to it and it’s gone and then I have to search every sub forum. Thanks
