If you really want one now is the time to buy, Come March prices will be back in the £250k starting point. The Aventador S also blows all the other cars you have mentioned out of the water - there is no comparison at all. I suggest you go and drive them all and you'll see what I mean. The AVS is an "experience" and even just looking at it parked in the drive or garage arouses emotions not found in any other car IMHO. The single clutch experience just adds to the value of owning a real piece of Italian history with proper character. A car which you control and not a computer!

Also don't rule out cars with Alcantara. My first one was leather and my current one has the quilted colour stitched alcantara - the alcantara makes the car feel extremely special over one that has leather IMHO! They last extremely well, the alcantara game has moved on a lot and not like the older cars where they wear down like towels do!

Bought 6 cars of the lads at Edinburgh - easily one of the best Lambo dealers in the UK - never mess around and always deliver on what is promised.

Indeed, nice example. I do prefer leather seats which it has and love the wheels. Shame the steering wheel is in alcantara. No PPF but easily done.
Nice example. Having said this I've never had alcantara and it does seem to hold out better in the long run. I'm not of large build so have never caused any marks on leather seats. Nice car.
that steering wheel is suede
alcantara outperforms anything : it was designed for marine, hospital and other unfriendly uses smile

Why would prices go back up in March? Prices are going down, not much on these cars but there is some more room for adjustment. I get that winter will be over and summer on the way but still don't see prices going up. I'm happy to take that risk and see, in the meantime the interest will also help balance out any price increase.
I'm happy to take my time and see more cars become available. I'm happy to compromise on some items but not on things such as the wheels and leather steering wheel.
If something really nice comes available in the meantime I will go for it, but the one I really like is not sold by a main dealer and does not have the wheels I like. In any case I would not want an alcantara steering wheel but may compromise on the seats. Though someone mentioned it is actually suede which is interesting, still I prefer leather. I will do this in my own time, thanks. I also need to change the doors on my garage in order to get it in! Isn't a big job, and should be able to get this done by the end of Feb.

Interesting that it is suede. It's not for me on the steering wheel though. I'm good with leather and will be able to keep it in good condition easily. It's great that alcantara or suede in this case increases grip but I wont need it for that.

Anyway Merry Christmas one and all.

I assumed alcantara is just another word for DNA sponge.

I also wondered just how long it would take for AI to start posting threads on forums.

Yep, I can get it retrimmed easy, I have had various works done professionally to various cars but dont wish to void a warranty.
In any case at this price I want the car to be as I want, there will be some things I cant do without and some I will compromise but the steering wheel makes little sense to get retrimmed. Chill dude.

I stated I would wait for 2024 cars to come out from the start of the post.
I'm buying for me no one else and will buy in my own time.
Not sure why you want to rush someone into buying a car then moan when it makes perfect sense.
I've also gone from £200 to £250 and even considering going slightly higher if I can get a 2019 / 2020 car and it's as close to perfect as I can get for what I want.

You guys on commission?
Do you see how what you say sounds?
Not just you Fast Eddie, but a few.
Same as Batman experienced.
Not all my questions have been answered, its 29th December and you expect me to go out and buy a car now??!! Like right now!!!!
If you dont have advice on the vehicle then why would you log on, and post crap??
Why not, do something else and leave this thread alone?
Why ruin it?
This is your life wasting away on moaning about when I am buying a car that I have already stated!!!!!
Some of you guys are like bullies. It's sad.
Makes me wonder if half of the people here are honest about the cars they have. A few of you seem to have some very nice cars but your behaviour is off?? I don't get it. I am so grateful for my life and the cars I have which aren't even like an aventador. I'm always nice though. But when I answer back at silly questions you then claim I am lying or provoking something. Well you know it all. I must be wrong! Whatever.

How would retrimming a steering wheel void a warranty? I’m pretty sure Lambo would retro fit a steering wheel, at your price point a bag of sand or so to have your perfect car is chicken feed

i see why people don't post very often. A lot of you a very rude and jump up and down a lot.

Get a life.

The reason some of you think people lie is because you know how much you lie so you believe others lie and you must point this out ignoring your own problems. I don't need to lie about a car, it's sad. You have zero proof of any lies, it's pure speculation and it makes you look dumb.
You pick at the smallest things moaning about wheels and a steering wheel when getting a leather steering wheel isn't hard and the wheels are something most people want to be right for them. Seems very dumb to then get a steering wheel retrimmed!!!!!
just buy a £250 car with wheels I dont like, yes that makes sense.
Well it's 29th Dec and a few of you have nothing better to do.

Well i guess money does grow on trees and a lot of you are tree trimmers

I don't know but I know they will use any excuse and it is not relevant as I am not interested in that car and it is not hard to get a car with a leather steering wheel. Also, if they will re-trim the steering wheel why not just say that?? but it is still irrelevant for more than one reason. You still did not say what you should have said, which is I should ask them to retro fit a leather steering wheel. make your mind up.
