    DoctaM3, I just want to let you know that I'm not singling you out but just using your post as my response to other posters on this thread as well. Many years ago, I was an engineer by trade, worked at Multimatic and Delphi for a few years before giving up engineering and going into the other direction. Ok, let's get the math out of the way first. Downforce = 0.5*W (width of the wing) * H (thickness of the wing) * F (coefficient) * Speed squared. So as you can see, downforce is dependent on speed. Using the Huracan Performante as an example, Lamborghini claims that the Per

    I think ALA is just marketing BS if you ask me. I think if it were so effective, you would be seeing the other major brands jumping all over it.
  3. That would be an interesting market to watch. Those 5 million plus special edition Chiron is definitely in a complete separate market altogether. I have to assume those cars will be going into some amazing collections and as such, they won't be coming onto the secondary market in the short term. I can't imagine anybody with only 5-6 cars in their garage buying a 5 million plus Bugatti and selling it in less than a year
  4. I agree with your view on this. The one-offs are just an exercise of special paint and leather interior. Fundamentally, these special one-offs needs to be based on a production vehicle in order to make it road legal, so in that sense, it's not a special car. I think the real collector cars are probably in the "few-offs", assuming you buy the right ones (eg. Project One, Valkyrie, ThethetheFerrari, P1, 918, etc).
  5. Fantastic! I had the red Countach bird eye view poster on my wall, with all of the specs listed
  6. Not possible. Transmission tunnel area is too small.
  7. The Veneno is just like the Reventon. A glorified bodykit car unfortunately. Beautiful to look at, but nothing different from an engineering perspective.
  8. I don't know about the long term value on the Sian, but I agree you with this one-off interpretation of the Aventador is the best one so far. The supercapacitor fixing the ISR gearbox is really Lamborghini to trying to put a band-aid on a fundamental engineering design flaw that has been plaguing the Aventador since the beginning. If the Aventador had the latest dual clutch gearbox from Porsche or Ferrari, the Aventador would be 2secs faster from 0-150 right away.
  9. So much for quality. I took this picture of the Veneno show car at the Museum last week.
  10. Well, 30k for a 650K car doesn't sound so bad
  11. Anybody know the price of the Balboni exhaust?
  12. I will be at Maranello to spec out my 812 GTS on Wednesday. Going to the Lamborghini factory for a tour as well
  13. I agree with you and that's why the Motor Trend is the only test that put both cars tested on the same day, at the same track, with the same driver. As for your assertion for Big Willow not being suited for the SVJ, I think that's a far stretch because the 918 Spyder (AWD) did well on the track, using 3 generations old Cup 2 tires and it was a pre-production prototype without the final hybrid software calibrations. If Big Willow is ill-suited to the SVJ, what track suits it? Monza?
  14. I did take into account of the track length. Autocar test track is 2.5km long. The Ring is 20.8km long, which makes it 8.32 times longer. The SVJ Ring lap record is roughly 12sec faster than the lap set by the 918 Spyder. So 12sec divided by 8.32 is 1.442 second advantage to the SVJ per 2.5km in track distance. But if you look at the Fastestlap.com record, the SVJ is only 0.40sec faster than the 918 Spyder at the Autocar track. Like I said before, something doesn't add up. And then you have the Motor Trend test between the GT2RS and the SVJ, where the GT2RS destroys the SVJ at
