Hi Martyn. Welcome back!
thank you! Happy to be back.Hi Martyn. Welcome back!
Thank you! Given the current market, would you suggest to just go with an S?Looks so beautiful. I think Lamborghini hit it out of the park from the get go with this car. On the outside anyway -- it's always mentioned that 2012 and 2013 are troublesome years for the Aventador internally, thankfully the price seems adjusted accordingly. If you will not keep for too long, I say to have a full PPI done and go for it if everything is well enough. Clutch life is getting low, but shouldn't be an issue unless you expect plenty of stop and go in the future.
Comparing to the S might not be fair, as it gives so many creature comfort upgrades over the standard Aventador, rear-wheel steering being one of the biggest. But it's also practically double the price this is going for, and not much lower for pre-owned examples.
My thoughts exactly... and yes I agree, very excited!With the higher mileage, I would assume that most of the mechanical issues have been sorted out. Just budget for a new clutch in a few years if you do buy it. Great color!
I’m in real estate, so the story is very similar, but at least those are investments. And I’m ok with the price I think, somewhat justifiable. It would be worse to go 6 figures down quick on an S which is mainly why I think going with this one is smarter...Aventador prices are just a little high right now. That 2012 should be closer to ~$230-220k.
You will have a hard time moving it if you ever decide to.
But then again, economics and Lambo’s don’t mix. Buy it, enjoy it and it’s only money.
rebuilt kevlar clutch similar to what the gallardo owners do is around 3000. labor depending where you go, dealers i think are around 10k and private expect to pay half that.it does require a lamborghini tool to do the clutch relearn and bleed process.What is an average cost for the clutch replacement?
thank you for the info, within expected $$. Is this with all Aventadors is just the LP 700? As in did they update the clutch in the newer trims?rebuilt kevlar clutch similar to what the gallardo owners do is around 3000. labor depending where you go, dealers i think are around 10k and private expect to pay half that.it does require a lamborghini tool to do the clutch relearn and bleed process.
I want to say no.. There are a few S models I found that are only ~$300k, making it a $50k jump from this LP700, but most sit closer to $400k.Thank you! Given the current market, would you suggest to just go with an S?
Great color choiceJust wanted to pop in and say how much I love this bull! Having owned a Rolls-Royce Ghost, Bentley GTC, Lamborghini Huracan and a Ferrari 458 as far as exotics go, this is by far the most fun to drive. Yes, the shifting is obnoxious given the single-clutch and it drives as stiff as it gets, i always look forward to hopping in. Stepping from a large ‘21 Escalade or my ‘20 G63, this is the perfect rocket to pump some adrenaline or enjoy the back roads in. Still getting used to the attention (I thought the red Ferrari was crazy) but I guess I can live with it! [emoji57]
