  1. Not 100% but quite sure the smaller wing is fixed like the big wing. As you knew, Lamborghini wanted to reduce as much weight for the SL as possible (they even took away one of the 2 struts and used polycarbonate instead of glass on the engine cover), so they deleted the motor & electronics for the wing and made both versions fixed. Regular Gallardo's have auto-deployed wing but it's not user-selectable. There is no switch; it can only be adjusted via the OBD port.

    Huracán STO

    I somewhat agree. I don’t think it’s total marketing BS; both Bugatti & Pagani use active aero; but there has to be more than just ALA that’s involved. A few Lambo techs from both Asia & North America think the same.

    Huracán STO

    In the words of Lamborghini's Chief Technical Officer, Maurizio Reggiani: it was hotly debated at the initial development of the STO, but since the GT3 racing forbids active-aero, we had decided to follow that rule and applied adjustable-aero instead.
  4. Thank you rhyno for the update. So it was your friend who bought "that" car. Thanks Docta M3 for the additional info. I could be wrong but based on the info. that I got from Ad P, the basic body colour of all the Xago's is the same; only some of the highlighted trims like front splitter, wing, mirrors and side-skirts are in different colours. There are 10 pre-determined trim colours and they won't be repeated on another Xago. Similar colour scheme applies to the interior. It's pretty cool but having the same price as a SVJ63 roadster seems a little odd: one's choice is limited on th
  5. I hear you and I concur to your analysis. The issue with Lamborghini is that they never really had a hypercar. They have made some of the best and extreme-looking sportscar/supercar but they never joined the hypercar club. And I doubt they ever will so long as it, Porsche and Bugatti are under the VAG umbrella; VAG will never fund it. That also explains why Lamborghini had to get by using existing chassis with a new shell and some minor tweaks to make their quasi-hypercar. Good for them on their fundraising; not so much on being a true hypercar. On the AV-S evolution as a farewell mo
  6. The STS gets my vote too. IMO, it’s the best overall Gallardo. I dislike the looks of the SC. And it feels a bit rough on a “regular” drive. It’s a nice car but seems to serve one specific purpose rather than striking an equilibrium between road & track use. The STS hits the sweet spot and it looks a lot better; at least to me.
  7. If you look at Lamborghini's history, an evolution S does make sense. The LP670-4 SV of the Murci series was the only exception. And that was kind of weird too as only 186 out of the planned 350 were built. Look at the Diablo, the 6.0SE may be the last and the best-built of the Diablo series but it was not the most extreme version. Neither was the final model of the Gallardo. From a business POV, building the most extreme version as a departing model is too risky: A) Investing more R&D to create the most extreme version of a departing model does not make sense. B ) To build the most
  8. LOL! I see that L/P still has the word swap mode on for the word “O-mega”.
  9. And to make matters worse, when Vader was finally unmasked in episode 6, the character wasn’t him either. Sebastian Shaw played the dying Vader/Anakin Skywalker. That’s why throughout all the conventions that Prowse attended and whenever he signed an autograph, he wrote “David Prowse was the real Darth Vader.” He had screen time on both TV & film prior to being hired to play Vader. He portrayed a hero character to promote road safety for children in his younger days. But he was in ill health in his senior years so not much on-screen work took place. Quite sad really.
  10. Not too many members left on this forum and most of the watch aficionado's are gone. Your question may be a bit broad to answer. Brands like Rolex & lambda lambda lambda and the omega mu have been and likely will continue to be popular choices. As would the holy trinity: PP, VC & AP but not too many would be so esoteric to go for the later 3 brands unless they are hardcore watch collectors. Cartier was the celebrities' choice. In the 1950's, the preferred style was simple, elegant design in yellow gold in small casing. So think lambda lambda lambda and the omega mu Seamas
  11. David Prowse, who played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy (while James Earl Jones did the v.o.), dead at 85. R.I.P.
  12. alpha6164 is correct. Not sure about the SVJ's but absolutely about the SVJ63 roadsters. According to the factory, only 1 SVJ63r can be build per week! I was given the choice on a March or June build. Agreed that the new flagship won't be out in 2021. They still have to finish the SVJ roadsters, the Sian coupe & roadsters and the Xago. Only then can they refit the production line for the new car. And with Winkelmann now at helm again, who knows if there will be another 5 AV editions or not? There is a rumour of an evolution model of the Aventador S being the swan song of th
  13. The Sian technology will not work in the long run. Maurizio already hinted/conceded to that long ago (even before the Sian Roadster was announced). It's Catch 22: current hybrid tech needs plenty of batteries to work and those are very hefty. New battery technology is needed to either increase its efficiency under the same weight, or maintain its current efficiency but with reduced bulk and weight. Battery placement will also be crucial so as not to compromise the car's handling. With both emissions & safety regs getting tighter, Lamborghini will need to rely on using plenty of exotic
