We received a nice tip off yesterday, and we want to share it with you, but just make sure you are prepared. So, are you sitting down?
That’s a very big number. Thankfully, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is a very big car; in all senses of the word. In size, in power, in performance and, of course, in stature. There’s no denying the big Lambo has presence.
Mind, that big number is only the bare bones manufacturer’s list price. If you want metallic paint you’ll need an extra $4300; make it another $8000 if you want to pick a colour from the “special” range, like the Arancio Atlas pictured above. Of course, no self-respecting Aventador buyer would sign on the dotted line before having a long hard think about choosing a matt paint scheme, before deciding that $27,000 is probably just a bit too excessive, even for a Lambo.
Want suede leather on your steering wheel? Add $3000. Parking assistance? That’ll be a lazy $9400 thanks. Makes the shiny black rims, at $3500, look like a steal. Not to mention the $940 for the ashtray; you’d take two, at that price, surely.
Despite earlier suggestions that the current 2011 production has sold out, AUSmotive understands a handful of Aventadors could be heading to Australia later this year. With any luck there’ll be one at the Australian International Motor Show in July, as well.
We can mock all we like. The simple fact is, we would if we could. You?
