  1. Exciting times ahead, and Lamborghini is in the front of it, leading. https://carbuzz.com/news/new-lamborghini-patent-spells-the-end-for-batteries
  2. Oh, that too I guess. According to the description: "The car features a front frame in aluminum, a carbon fiber monocoque for the maximum safety, a steel rollcage to maximize the torsional and bending stiffness". Noticed it has a different gearbox too. A 6 speed sequential Xtrac transmission.
  3. I would hardly call it a part of the Aventador family since the only part it shares with the Aventador is the engine. The only part that is likely to fit on an Aventador is the wing if you don't count the engine tune.
  4. 2022 is correct, the previous report is false to a certain extent. The same report said Lamborghini will be sold off from VW and that the V12 will die. Both have been confirmed false by now. Is this the last Aventador derivative? Time will tell. Apperantly debuts in 2020.
  5. Huracan has reached 14022 units in 5 years, the exact number of Gallardos ever produced in 10 years. It now has also become the best selling model of Lamborghini ever.
  6. So much for that sale or Lamborghini becoming public. https://carbuzz.com/news/volkswagen-is-not-selling-lamborghini
  7. I agree with most of your points. I was trying to explain the difference between the 2 designers. We got a breath of fresh air with Sian even though the design is still similar to the Countach style as I would caIl it. Hope that fresh page in terms of design will come with the Aventador's replacement. I knew about their "PR" statements regarding the AC/ ISR transmission. I was wondering more about if it actually works in the real world use or if it is just their typical PR statement without any effect. I agree that the worth is subjective. While limited Lambo models are still nowhere near the prices of limited Ferrari models overall, I have noticed a noticeable amount of increase in the interest for these one-off models from Lamborghini. Probably because of the increase in the amount of exposure of these models in media during these last couple of years. YouTubers have had a big play in that, especially this year. ( Multiple in-depth reviews of Reventon, Veneno and Centenario.)
  8. I think it is the best one-off interpretation of the Aventador chassis so far. You look at a Veneno or a Centenario and you clearly see the AV chassis. Sian hides it very well. What I'm wondering most about is if the supercapacitator has fixed the ISR transmission at low speeds? Now is Sian worth it's price? By now it is probably worth a lot more, especially with the recent Lamborghini one-off auction result. On top of that this is far more unique than a Centenario. I bet you nobody else will put a supercapacitator with a N/A V12 and sell it out like hot cakes for this sort of price. In other news, ALA 3.0 is well underway for a certain model.
  9. Next flagship is a lot closer than 2024.
  10. Interesting news. Did they tell you how long it will take for the factory to adjust for the replacement?
  11. It is almost twice as expensive as the next car on the list, which is a Koenigsegg One:1 at $4.6 million. In a company of a Koenigsegg, ThethetheFerrari, Enzo, P1, Veyron and and lots of other hypercars this fetched the most. I can't imagine what a decently specced one would go for. Also the site features very rare Veneno engine photos, here is one of them: See more cars here, sadly it didn't go so well for a black Murcielago SV: https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/25819/#/aa0=1&MR0_length=96&w0=list&m0=0 If you want more background on the history of this collection, the cars were seized from an African dictator's son in 2016: https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/buying-maintenance/a28195295/government-seized-supercar-collection-bonhams-geneva-sale/
  12. Monza, the Ring, Imola etc. Tracks with fast corners that doesn't require too much agility. 918 had hybrid assisting it out of the corners, that's why it did so well on all the tracks in general. It was and will always be a hyper car costing a lot more than an SVJ, also being a much faster car in a straight than anything from the higher end supercar segment today. (at least until supercars start to go hybrid as well.)
  13. Except that SVJ isn't exactly suited for the Willow Springs either considering it has corners deemed for understeer for an AWD car that weighs well over 3500lbs. And again Porsche in that test used the Cup2 Rs vs SVJ on Trofeo Rs If I remember correctly. I however have not been a fan of MT tests after 2013, especially the way they have tested cars. Sometimes it seems like they pull numbers out of their ass. See their ThethetheFerrari test for reference and explain how it is so much faster from a standstill and 1/4 mile than the 918/P1, when in all other tests it is the slowest car (apart from the C/D test). While we are on the topic of Willow Springs, MT posted a pretty questionable track time for the Performante as well. An owner who I shall not name has lapped Performante around that track in 1:21:29 on Trofeo Rs (showed me through the Lambo's track telemetry app which in all honestly pretty accurate considering it works in a similar fashion to a v-box). Compare that to the MT test and you will see that it is quite a difference. I doubt Narvi wheels makes such a significant difference considering that MT's Perf used the slightly heavier Loge wheels with the same Trofeo R rubber. Regarding the Autocar test and your calculations with the track length, you're correct. However I forgot to mention in my last post that one can't calculate the difference in track conditions since they are quite different. Who knows if the SVJ could have been that 1.442 sec faster than the 918 there. Maybe it could, maybe it couldn't. At the time it was 0.4 sec faster. The only way to do it would put them together at the same time and see which one is truly the fastest.
  14. You forgot to take track length into account. Scale that down and the time makes sense. Even on the twisty bits, SVJ with Corsas will be faster than the 918. Otherwise good points. But I still don't doubt the Ring time or any other lap time posted by the SVJ. Even a stock Aventador has more endurance and long-term pulling power compared to the 918.
  15. True, but to claim SVJ hasn't broken more track records outside the Ring is false. I can provide you two examples (one contains a Ferrari press car on near-slicks) it did outside the Ring. https://fastestlaps.com/tests/bz2agg20rouo Minus your typical Ferrari press car on near slicks. It is the fastest production car there. https://fastestlaps.com/tests/7fsngh20d3up 1. What does all these tracks have in common with each other, including the Ring? No tight corners and long straights. Also more or less a lot of space. 2. Aventador is a big car, that's why you don't see it break any record on tracks with tight corners and without long straights. Even in SVJ form it is a dinosaur there. Also it weights a lot more than 3500, more in line with 3800-900 with everything. 3. Tires have the biggest impact in lap times. Trofeo Rs are simply nowhere as good as Cup 2 Rs on the track. Even the next generation ones. As it has been proven before take those away from the GT2 RS, 488 Pista and AMG GT-R Pro and they will be slower on track than a Performante and a 720S on Trofeo Rs and even Corsas. Also Cup 2r tires are extremely dangerous in damp/rainy weather conditions, to the point where the car becomes undrivable. That's not the case with Trofeo Rs even though they are slippy in the rain. Also it is actually as much dealer's fault as it is Lamborghini's regarding no Trofeo Rs on the SVJ on customer cars.
