At Geneva, both Ferrari and Lamborghini succeeded to sold the entire production for their first year of production.
We are talking about the new Ferrari FF – first four wheel drive Ferrari, and Lamborghini LP700, the replacement for the Murcielago.
“We have already sold all 800 Ferrari FFs planned to be produced in 2011,” Ferrari CEO Luca Cordero di Montezemolo said at the Geneva Motor Show.
THE FF IT’s a front-engined V12 four-seater GT that not only replaces the 612 two-plus-two coupé but also aims to attract a new kind of “all-roads, all-weathers” Ferrari customer. And looks like is already a success.
The V12 unleashes a massive 660 CV at 8,000 rpm, and maximum torque of 683 Nm at 6,000 rpm with 500 Nm already available at just 1,000 rpm.
This ensures the performance figures of an extreme sports car, with the 0-100 km/h sprint covered in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 335 km/h. The interior holds a 1,280 Watt/16-channel Dolby sound systemand TVs in the headrests. It costs €260,000 or about US$360,000 at today’s exchange rates.
The VW Group’s flagship Lamborghini model, has already received bookings for approximately 700 units (equivalent to 12 months production) of Aventador till date.
Mr Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini Boss said, “We already sold more than 12 months of production. It’s a very expensive car and we have to balance the production and the cycle so that we do not have a drop after the first couple of years. We would be happy to sell over the life cycle a bit more than the Murcielago.”
The Lamborghini Aventador price for the European market starts at 255.000 EUR and at 201.900 GBP in the UK. The Lamborghini Aventador USA price has been set at 379.700 USD. The first deliveries of the Aventador will begin in late summer 2011.
Lamborghini has sold 4,099 units of their $400,000 supercar Murcielago, after which they had stopped its production in May 2010 to make way for newer models.
