    Lamborghini rumors suggest they may not produce enough to fill all JOTA orders and Roadster numbers could be less than expected. LB48 customers will spec in 2019 deliveries thru 2020 - few were lucky enough to recently see the full size clay model.

    Ford chose to make the car bigger than it is - you are not alone in your thoughts. Times are good as they were when Ford first produced the original GT and at the end brought the last ones back to the factory and disaasembled them placing the parts on a shelf for replacement parts. I would still love one because it's a Ford - no other reason.

    At Monterey auction one hit 1.8 and did not make reserve. Own a lot of Fords had two deposits at to dealers until they told me how Ford decided to sell direct. It's produced at a contractors facility - then shipped to the guys who painted the Viper another outside contractor. It is cramped inside you better like the passenger a lot. Ford made a huge mistake by cutting out the dealer - they just don't care as many are going to non Ford owners to ambassador the car. I may sign up for round two - it's a hard pill to swallow from Ford all around. Further the owners are struggling with being able to drive their cars and being told be patient we will get the car figured out. This is a long production run expect a lot more tweaks as production continues. The 2005 vs 2006 GT was minimal expect a lot of upgrades to keep everyones attention.

    There are 3 years of growth at 3 - 4% predicted. Selling my SV Roadster have a deal in the works for 6% less than msrp - two years later. Dealers are becoming an arse because they don't have to beg for customers - URUS is selling like hot cakes the local dealer has more JOTA deposits than allocations on the coupe and expected amount of roadsters. Lamborghini has been great to deal with from the dealer to the factory and I only bought one - SV. Ferrari Porsche there is a line out the door and they both requires bribes. Porsche thru ADM and Ferrari requires one buy a slow moving new F car or over pay for one used on the lot. Both equate to a 50 - 150k buy in to a car like the Pista expect 2500+. JOTA increase IMO isn't bad - Pista 350k is 60K over Speciale 290k add Pista Aperta's only enough to satisfy select friends and family. Love the removable rear aero trofeo's steering titanium exhaust alone saves me from buying a Lambo race exhaust that was 12k. There is no other doors up V12 roadster like it until you put a 1 or 2 in front of msrp and one of those is eye watering to maintain and requires up front payment before receiving it in 2+ years. IMO SV & JOTA or both excellent long term cars to own.

    Makes sense as the Trofeo's are designed for a warm dry track. Wet surfaces they don't grip and or not properly warmed lots of understeer - just surprised Lamborghini doesn't require a waiver like the SV race tune and exhaust.

    Whoops. You are correct but guys are telling me they can not order the car from the factory with Trofeo's. Trofeo's are track only which means only available after market.

    Make sure if you paint it the factory will allow - non red. Red J seems to be the signature - only change I have heard is the exterior red J being outlined in black for contrast.

    The LB48 had more deposits than cars - some of those 650k depositors (VIP) who did not get the LB48 could be receiving a 63LE Carbon. As far as being an owner - how many Centenario guys were previous Lamborghini owners as every time I see one it's stable mates are Pagani Ferrari Bugatti Koeigsegg making it safe to assume many LB48 depositors were not prior owners. Lamborghini dealers are not like Ferrari they share showrooms with other high end brands - those dealers if they were smart grabbed those buyers for the LB48.

    Agree but to be fair I could list production runs from Mclaren and Ferrari that are far worse within the same model. Lamborghini treats their roadsters and coupes in two completely different categories.

    Are you referencing the LB48 in the second 63 run - curious.

    Unless what is not announced is allocated. 488 Pista Aperta is a perfect example - great customers were passed over to give other customers something special. Friend was slightly upset when he first saw the already sold out car in Monterey. Weeks later received an invite to Maranello for the Monza.
