    Aventador SV-J Discussion and New Information

    Very true, quite a few of the Centenario owners are first time Lambo owners. I personally know two guys who's never owned a Lambo before but bought the Centenario because they thought it would be a good addition to their collection.

    Whoa.......I have been away at Rennsport for 2 days and this thread has turned a page quickly to the sh*t I just hope the SVJ is a good driver's car in reality. Can't tell so far from all of the online *worthless* reviews

    I do, got two boys but they are much to young to help me. I guess I gotta ask the wife to help me every time I wash the SVJ.

    I'm curious to find out if I can remove the engine cover by myself on the SVJ. I would hate to find out that it's a two person job. I like to wash my cars myself and this manual engine cover is PITA.

    And we are back baby! Lambo Power is back! It's weird for me. I have more than 15 Lamborghini car models in the house but only 3 Porsche car models. Yet I have 12 Porsches and 1 Lambo in the garage. I think it's time for the little boy inside me to take charge and welcome the SVJ to my family!

    Because some of them are true driver's car with proper engineering, solid built quality/dependability and you can beat it all day long. The feeling you get from driving those special 911s grows under your skin over time. I know it sounds weird, but that's the best way I can describe it. Lamborghini has a cult following too

    My argument against this would be the Porsche 911. Porsche currently makes 26 variations of their 911 model, all of which are based on the same platform. So how do you explain the market value difference between a regular 911 Carrera vs. 911 GT2RS? Based on your logic below, the 911 GT2RS is essentially a 911 with different bumpers, added wings, modified engine and beefed up suspension. Sounds familiar? Yup, that's the Aventador SVJ in a nutshell. Here is my theory on why historically Lamborghini has held poor resale value. Lack of proper engineering and not being a driver's car. If you look at Ferrari or Porsche, these brands all have their regular customers and then there are enthusiasts (car guys with serious pockets). I know I would never buy a regular 911 Carrera and be happy with it, so that's why I buy the GT2RS. Just like I have no interest in buying a 2006 Gallardo SE, because it drives like crap and it's not special, but I would love to buy a 288 GTO or a 2011 GT3RS 4.0 (both of which are based off of a mass produced platforms). So let's look at cars that Lamborghini has made in the past 20 years that collectors are going after. There aren't many and only a few special models are holding their value because of the rarity (eg. Murci LP670SV manual). Because of this, most of the current Lamborghini customers falls under the regular customers category and the customers in this category are always going for the latest and the greatest. It's like fashion, they want to be seen and look cool. That's why cars like the Ferrari California, Portofino, Porsche 911 Turbo and etc, never hold value because they too, are bought by the regular customers. While production quantity plays a factor in determining a car's overall value, I think the most important factor that determines the car's "value and collectability" is proper engineering and producing a great driver's car. Another good example would be the value difference between a 996 GT3 vs. 997.2 GT3. Even though technically, a 996 GT3 is much more rare, the market clearly prefers the 997.2 GT3 and for good reasons. Growing up with a Countach poster on my wall made me a Lamborghini fan for life. But there is no denying that in order for Lamborghini to be accepted by the car world, it needs to better in terms of building better driver's cars. Hopefully with the Performante and the SVJ, this is the start of that change. Please, no more stupid bodykit specials like the Reventon or Centenario. We ain't that dumb!

    Yup, there are over 1500 copies in the US alone.

    Make sense. When you have money to buy a 450k USD Aventador S (US pricing), you can afford to pony up another 100K to purchase a 550k USD SVJ. So Lamborghini can't use pricing to differentiate the buyers between a regular S or the SVJ. Therefore, it's inevitable that Lamborghini needs to shift the majority of the Aventador production to the SVJ model for the next two years. It's just like the Porsche 991.1 GT3RS market. When it first came out, everybody and their grandma wanted one. Porsche was very smart by not stating how many cars they will produce. When things are said and done, Porsche ended up producing 5500 copies of the GT3RS, which essentially killed the dealer ADM market. If you had bought a GT3RS at MSRP, you wouldn't have lost much money. It's still a great driver's car, nothing will change that fact even with over 5500 copies around the world. I just hope Lamborghini made the necessary improvements on the SVJ over the SV. I had many opportunities to drive the SV both on the track and on the public roads. Honestly, I was never impressed with SV. It wasn't the driver's car that I thought it would be. Here is my two cent. If Lamborghini finally made the Aventador SVJ into a proper driver's car, then I think the value on the SVJ will hold in the long term. Nothing beats a properly engineered driver's car and the market will reflect that. It will go down in history as the ONLY properly engineered Aventador and there is value in that. Ferrari produced 1315 copies of the F40 and look at the value of it today. There are many special editions of the Gallardo platform, some of them are less than 100 copies, do you see people lining up to buy them at auctions? LOL

    Agreed 100%. I don't think the Aventador SVJ has any real direct competitors in the marketplace today. The battleground with manufactures is in the 200-350k supercar market. There is nothing on offering from other marques in the 500-600k range that can match what the SVJ is offering.

    Has anybody seen how the engine bonnet on the SVJ opens? I'm curious. Is it racecar style where you remove the entire bonnet and lay it on the floor? Or is it still hinged but they just removed the gas struts and give you a pole to keep it open?

    Damn, that's a little bit too many cars. 900 for the coupes alone? How many Aventador does the factory produces a year?

    Is 900 units only for coupe or is it 900 units total for both coupe and roadster? Lambo is playing tricks with their wordings!

    Two of them? As far as I know, there is only one FuguZ in the world. We just had a great time filming at Jay Leno's a few weeks ago!
