So was talking to someone well connected today and I don’t know if it is true as I’ve not heard it elsewhere.

 

But apparently the V12 is to be dropped from the Aventador replacement as they just can’t get it light enough. 
Same person said the order came from Lamborghini head office and the factory is not at all happy about it and the workers went on strike for several days over it.  Pretty specific stuff if it’s bull.

I had heard in August that Audi was putting a lot of pressure on Lamborghini to replace the v12 with 4.0 v8 but I thought no way. The v12 is part of Lamborghini heritage and soul. I cant believe this would be possible.  I wonder if the weight is an issue because they are trying to combine it with a hybrid system.

Hybrid plus a dual clutch would add additional weight. 

I have a hard time believing Lamborghini would ditch the V12, it's the heart and soul of the brand plus how would they go about marketing a V8 flagship when the Huracan would still have a NA V10.

My personal take is the replacement A will be more of a mid cycle refresh (similar to 488>F8) with updated tech, dual clutch and the V12 hybrid and the V8 goes in the Huracan replacement.

If the V12 will no longer be used in the Aventador successor it is time to get hold of an SVJ ... that will be the last V12 Lamborghini ever then, so it will become valuable in the future ... just drive it a while and then put her into hybernation for a decade or so ... I need to have a talk with my bank manager ... lol

Nobody buys the Aventador because it is faster than the F8 or the 720S. Because it is not. It is in some aspects a bit of a dinosaur. People buy it because it is the only supercar with a V12 still left. All the other V12s are in GTs or hypercars. Lamborghini have that market locked the f**** down. So why in the world would they want to go V8 and fight the cars which people who buy bulls find boring because of their engines?

So true. People keep saying why you not getting a 720, that AV is a slow tank turd. My reply is the V12 sound. I don't care how fast a car is, if it sounds like a weed eater I don't want it.

Ya ..... well if you want put a turbo on the Avy  lots of power ,but I still love the looks especially the sound of it in comparison to McLaren GT2RS etc. McLaren bore me. You can get your walk behind Lawnmower to go amazing speed but who cares? I used to do this on Motorcycles but nothing beats the good ole naturally aspirated V 12 or anything for that matter.

Interesting note that most of the SVJ63 are white. What's up with that?

I would venture a guess that white is the safest bet for resale.  M&M's are nice but one has to wait for the "one guy" who fancies "that" colour.

White is as neutral and hence as safe as it can get.

Did they have a limited color pallet? I can't remember.

 

Yes, 6 options were "recommended" by Lamborghini but the full palette is available.  And then there's always Ad Personam.

Yes the SVJ is a “fussy” Aventador design IMHO and the 63 just ads to that. But what do I know ?

I've always thought that the 63 livery was making an already "fussy" styled car look even more so.

I agree with you , personally , I don’t like any of the stupid stickers they put on the cars . Let the car speak for itself

I doubt it. My dealer has a brand new white Aventador S they've had in inventory forever and from what I heard it's available at a nice discount.
