    Ferrari FF & Lamborghini Aventador sold out for first model year - report

     

    Ferrari FF & Lamborghini Aventador sold out for first model year - report


     

    Waiting list starts to grow


     

    Fresh from their Geneva debuts, the Ferrari Four and Lamborghini Aventador are proving to be critical sales successes.

    First up, Business Week is reporting the production version of the Ferrari Four (FF) concept has been sold out for its first model year. Priced at €260,000 ($363,300 / £223,570), the company didn't have any problem selling the 800 units that will be built during the inaugural production run.

    As you may recall, the FF is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 engine that develops 660 PS (485 kW / 651 hp) and 683 Nm (504 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a double-clutch transmission which enables the 1790 kg (3946 lb) concept to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed 335 km/h (208 mph).

    Likewise, the Lamborghini Aventador has also been sold out for its first model year. No word on production figures, but pricing starts at €255,000 ($379,700 / £201,900).

    Under the hood, the Murcielago replacement features a 6.5-liter V12 engine with 700 PS (690 hp / 515 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. Paired to a seven-speed transmission, the car sprints from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

    And I thought there was a global recession ...

    Clearly there are plenty of people with money burning a hole in their pockets

    It's nothing really new, is it? Smiley

    Everytime a new supercar comes out, there are always people who just must have the newest, latest and greatest. This leads to a relatively big demand for such cars, especially given their low production numbers even more in the first year of production.

    True! The question is can they keep up selling as much after the first year. I feel the FF wont.

    Wasn't there a 2 year wait list for the Cali after it was introduced?

    I know for a fact Lamborghini aren't making a whole lot for the first year. I hate it when manufacturers say "sold out" etc. when the numbers aren't big to begin with.

    We are only getting allocated 2 this year, where we normally got allocated as many as we could sell with the LP640(around 7-8 annually).

    ^This! 

    C'mon how much of an achievement is it to say "we're sold out for the year" when you're only making 300?

    .

     


    Re: Ferrari FF & Lamborghini Aventador sold out for first model year - report

    Ya no one is therefore surprise 800 FF's have been sold. There's more than 800 girls alone who could buy it on credit without their husbands noticing i bet. Which i suspect is what happened here

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Ferrari FF & Lamborghini Aventador sold out for first model year - report

     Are these buyers or allocations to dealers? This sold out crap only serves to stimulate those considering buying the car.

    800 and 300 is a joke when you consider the billions of people on the planet.

    Let them play their games.

    If I have to wait for 6 months for an Audi Q5 2.0 liter diesel, after 3 years of production, what is the achievement in selling out a handful of cars just after launch
