Starts in Great Britain, Stops All Over The World
I also don't want fake engine sounds if they try to do that...Does anything look better/sound better than the AV on the market now? As soon as they take away "the sound" - they take away "the soul". Sure you might go faster but 99.9% of the time these cars are used they are on roads i.e. with speed restrictions.
I believe the AV in 10 years time will be iconic like the Countach (and a relative price to match)
I wonder which V12 in the Lambo range will be "the car" in 10 years time?
As a new generations come of age and adopt the hobby they will probably just accept it as business usual or just the way things are. Yet, those that have had experience with the sound of the sublime NA engine symphony are not going to be so as accepting but, alas, it's inexorable.EV and Lamborghini just don't go together. But the people behind the cars certainly know this, so I'm curious to see how they'll make the compromise.
That said, we're the hobbyists.. I imagine most buyers are probably in it for the price and status, right? I wonder if they will care as well.
Agree 100% - who drives on a road and tries to get o - 60 in under 3 seconds all day long - I reckon electric cars will kill more pedestrians because you can't hear them. NO ONE can say they can't hear a Lambo coming - even deaf people can "feel" the ground shake!For me it is all about the sound. I could care less about 0-60 under 2 sec if there is no exhaust note.
Good point but with the current worldwide trend toward electrification plus the vilification of fossil fuel I think this evolution is unstoppable. We shall see......This story should end with the fact that Porsche brought the NA 6 cylinder Boxster and Cayman back (718 GTS 4.0) after customers fled the 718 4 cylinders. But the current situation is different.
