Hey folks - I've put a deposit down so am (im)patiently waiting in line for more info - I've been told end of the year before any further info / specs available - has anybody else received similar / more info on this? Price? First time I'm ordering a brand new car in my life so am a tad nervous - esp the fact it's not a V10, though am excited about a PHEV double combo (works very well with some other BMW VOLVO's I've driven with that instant torque). Is there any chance the value will tank within a year or two (my worst fear) like STO or Tecnica, e.g 25-50k per year?

well, if you take the 296 as comp, then I'd say some depreciation is quite likely.
no info I can add re the car.

Edit to add: or the Artura to take a McLaren example

I think the price of cars, especially hybrid and electric, is so high nowadays that big depreciation is inevitable. Also by the now common manufacturers tactic of making everything an “extra/spec” and charging silly prices for them.

So the Huracan replacement with spec may be a £350k car.

Honestly, a standard-issue production car like the new Huracan will depreciate a ton. They all do. The Ferrari 296gtb comparison is totally apt, and you can now pick up one of those 20-30% below list for a 12 month old car. If you're worried about steep depreciation, don't buy a factory new car in this price category.

It seems hybrid doesn’t concern the top top end buyers… LaFerrari, 918, P1, Valkyrie, etc

More “mass” market, then big financial depreciation for the first owner… Ferrari SF90, 296, Artura

Technically and performance wise they are better than any predecessor, but from a pure £££ perspective then you’d conclude that the market isn’t taking to them

those who've seen it in person say it's a fantastic looking car

it'll depreciate imo but can't see it quite falling as bad as the 296/sf90 has - but that's just gut feeling more than anything logical

Agree with most of above, but what I find with the mainstream Ferrari's eg SF90, 296, Portofino's, depreciate 20-30% in the first year, whereas the Lambo's do not. Evo Spiders still circa 200k, similar to pre Covid, and not sure how or why but Revuelto's 2-300k above list price which I really cannot understand. They haven't given me any indication of price yet.

the fact it revs to 10k makes it very unique as a turbo hybrid...... this may be its saving grace.... sure its going to sound and feel bonkers as a result.... well done lambo i say

I hear that it’s quicker than a Revuelto, which is causing a bit of head scratching at HQ..
