I know nothing but if guessing i suspect at least another year to see it and then 6 months before you will get one so min 18 months

I reckon it will be quite a lot more expensive as they just keep ramping up the price each iteration so probably another 10% on top of SVJ pricing.

 

Personally even SVJ was too expensive for the amount they made of them once you account for the stupid price options, for a car at that level i want to be exclusive and they are not. I will only buy if they can control the numbers or the market to keep it special at that price point. They are starting to make Ferrari look good value! 

I've had every Aventador model from new when the first came out but for the first time in a long time I'm not desperate to get the first one as i just think Lamborghini are becoming Porsche loads of cars and versions of exactly the same thing and if they make loads why not wait 6 months and buy one for 20% less that has barely been used.  The dealers here also for some reason seem to think i should beg for one, even though they have had my deposit money for 2+ years already as apparently they have better clients now!

Im not a hobby collector, i like stuff i can use regularly and hard that wont let you down 

old stuff i like to look at but would never wish to own, 

 

I also think electric will be the equivalent of the manual to automated clutch debate of 10 years ago, in a couple of years only enthusiasts will own ice cars and they will be totally outdated , we are in a weird transition phase at the moment 

 

weirdly I'm quite drawn  to Mclaren currently but have never been a fan before but not sure i could live with it breaking all the time !

McLaren is best of both worlds, old and new. Old because it's unreliable and breaks all the time, and new technology and fancy-pants speed! :lol2: You solved your own quandary!

Destructo, I agree with you.  I have been so close to picking one up but I still hear and see the nightmares on reliability.  For now, I am staying away. When they run, they are amazing but I like to drive my cars and just don't want to deal with the angst al the time.

I could see you having one in your stable, but it couldn't be the only one. As pretentious as that sounds lol

In all seriousness, i wouldn't be comfortable having it as my only fun car considering the reliability issues. BUT if I had a few others I could count on, then absolutely.

I agree they are getting out of hand on price, the replacement being a hybrid will be over 600 grand and to keep pace with the Ferrari sf90 power wise it will take 1000 hp the new v12 will need 3 electric motors to keep pace.

I loved my LP640 but got tired of it after 10 years so I bought the 812 Superfast it is easy to live with but not very exotic so missing the Lambo.

What did you get tired of with the 640? I'm guessing it seems ancient compared to the Superfast. Beautiful car BTW, care to share any pics of it?

Breaking down is part of the Mclaren ownership experience. The British car club I was in had a traveling award for that…it was passed around A LOT.

Repost from Lambo-Talk, possible sighting of the A replacement....


 

Quote

 

Bonus sight: we saw a prototype driving inside the plant, it was covered with a thick "coat" but it drove very close to me so i was able to see fairly well some of the details. The car looked very defined and the exhausts shape different from any car seen so far. From the car shape / dimensions it looked like the aventador replacement. The sound was massive, immense, and I would not be surprised if they tell me it was a V12 ....if that one is an hybrid engine it sounded really impressive and the future may not be so bad after all...

Replacement (was it?): the noise was very loud, thats the reason I noticed it first thing. Quite high pitched and reminded the Aventador and nothing close in sound to the huracan. It had this coat on it, like a fabric cloth military green and seemed to me covering a well defined car. Under this coat I clearly noticed the exhausts, they looked like 2 long narrow elliptical shapes, horizontal, and mounted high, I would say at the same level of the rear lights, so nothing we have seen in production. No wing so probably not a racing prototype. Again it was looking and sounding like and Aventador...

That sounds very interesting. Maybe the car will appear in the spring then? With the same green camo maybe? The elliptical exhausts mounted as high up as the tail lights sounds strange. But I guess it will work when we get to see it.

I am told you can't order a new Aventador.  If that is the case, I would imagine that we might be seeing something soon.  There are the 600 Ultimae they have to produce plus whatever cars they already had in the hopper as of last month.  Is that enough for 2022? Does that mean, Any replacement is 2023?

Let's say they have around 1.000 V12s to build yet. That's about one year of production still left I think.

I agree with this--makes sense.

I think 2023 is very likely. I have an Aventador Ultimae Roadster allocation… wasn’t expecting to see it start production until next year… and it’s already confirmed in production on Unica app, which is notoriously slow to update. This is way farther ahead than I expected! I hear it’s about 6 months from time it starts production. Knock on wood. I might get the summer driving season with it!  Usually roadsters are last out the door… but pandemic has thrown all norms out the window.

Ordering book for the Aventador series is now officially closed.  Last batch of the SVJ's and Sian's are being completed right now.  With the Ultimae, the Essenza SCV12 and the New Countach, these will take the AV production line to the end of 2022.  New flagship car is likely in 2023.  In 10 days, there will a dealership meeting in Milan.  Attendees will be briefed on both the V12 and V10 cars.  No news had been disclosed yet but the dealership execs should have some info. in about 2-weeks' time.

https://www.carscoops.com/2021/11/lamborghini-spotted-testing-upcoming-hybrid-v12-engine-in-an-aventador-mule/ Yes, the rear and front bumper is slightly changed on this test mule. But I do not think its a new version. I think what's under the body is what they are testing here... Happy weekend everyone btw!

The body looks wider than the chassis (wheels are tucked in) so there's definitely going on underneath the Aventador shell and here's another test mule captured few months ago...

Nice to see the first test mule for the replacement.

 

Remember that Aventador started out as this:

and within a year went to this:
2010-213048-lamborghini-jota-spied-at-nu

And then this:
