When you say emailed to me by Lambhorghini, you mean company/factory or the dealership you are working with?This was just emailed to me from Lamborghini. I was offered a "reservation" months ago as soon as info came to light.
With the long awaited replacement of Lamborghini's flagship V12, news from Sant'Agata is starting to make its way to the dealers. I will try to break down what we know and what we don't know, again this is new information received this week and is subject to change.
The process and order format is similar to in the past but will be handled a little differently as all Purchase Orders and Deposits as well as the customer has to be entered into the Lamborghini CRM system to be reviewed by Lamborghini before we can confirm your Reservation has been accepted. A "Reservation" does NOT guarantee an "Allocation"; it's simply the first step in Lamborghini determining the planning volume for this car and maintaining integrity in the process. Reservation deposits will be equal to $50,000 USD and held by the dealer, being fully refundable and cancellable by either party up until the allocation date. Allocation sequence will not be based on the date/time of the deposit but rather on "Dealer Loyalty, Brand Loyalty" determined from LamborghiniKEY (CRM) and Lamborghini dealers own CRM.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions and I will do my best to answer your questions.
What we have been told:
- Power will come from a V12 with electric assist (rumored 1000+ hp)
- Cues from Sian will be obvious in the styling
- A new order process moving to a "reservation" and customer validation through Lamborghini
- Production will be less than half the Aventador lifecycle (12 yrs), Lamborghini expects to be full electric by 2030
- Demand is expected to outweigh production
- Reservations open now
- To be revealed at Monterey Car Week August 2023
What we don't know:
- Production numbers
- Coupe/Roadster timing
- Model/Submodel lineup ie. SV, SVJ, etc
I do not think anything is BS in the email as it came directly from the owner of a licensed Lamborghini dealership... who I have known for over 20 years and have never known him to be a bullshitter...Lot of BS in that email to go with information most of us were given weeks ago.
As that was an email from a dealer, I can say with confidence that most of that will not be true. The deposit will definitely not be $50k. Everyone's relationship is different, each dealer is different, and each dealerships relationship with Italy is different. Thanks for posting but I think a lot of that email is incorrect opinion.I do not think anything is BS in the email as it came directly from the owner of a licensed Lamborghini dealership... who I have known for over 20 years and have never known him to be a bullshitter...
A bit harsh, and while i'm inclined to agree with you, I will say that it's not the case for everyone.Call it a culture difference if you will, but the reservation deposits (which, myself and 3 of my closest buddies have all put down at different dealers and franchises) we have put down are missing a zero off your number, with that zero being added if we get an allocation.
Not to mention the date of reveal, 12 months from now for the reveal? Ha, yea nope.
I get it that over there you guys like to "buy status" or whatever, but a dealer asking for 50k down for 12 months before the car is even seen is just laughable, but then again you guys apparently are happy to swap ultimates for over 3x the price of the rest of the world because a dealer claimed it sold for 1.something million dollars?
I would hope not, but look at it from the POV I just pointed out and re-read that email and how many red flags its raises. Or, at least it raises flags from how we do business over here.A bit harsh, and while i'm inclined to agree with you, I will say that it's not the case for everyone.
Not so sure! They keep trying to buy my AV every other week as there just arent enough to go around.Far less demand where you are.
Yea exactly...However, the right relationship doesn't require all stated in the email, that's for sure.
