Some misinformation seems to be out there at the moment regarding the new official warranty prices for all the Aventador models.

After speaking to a dealer today, the new prices I have been quoted are: (all aventador models)

£7,063 inc vat per year if your car is currently under warranty. (Roughly a £500 increase)
£10,600 inc vat per year if your car is out of warranty! A massive £4,000 increase !

Even as a current Ferrari owner I always thought my pockets would never be deep enough to run an Aventador. Good to know that is still the case.
Top respect to anyone who does though, I know somebody with one and they have hypercar levels of road presence.

is this one of the reasons Aventadors have so many owners ?

I'm a Huracan Perf owner so not privy to those Aventador type costs.

What would an indie be charging vs a main dealer?

reading between the lines, this is not a factory/importer/dealer warranty, but a third ( fifth ?! ) party job

Not sure what you mean, just to clarify these prices are from a U.K franchised dealer (Selezione Lamborghini Certified).
There used to be some high end independent dealers that would be able to up sell a suitable warranty with a 'up to the vehicle value claim limit' when a car is bought through them, but the last 3 or 4 I have inquired about, all had a single warranty claim limit of only 5 or 10k, so pretty useless on a used aventador.
Over the years I have had to have 3 aventador gearbox replacements, and also a huracan performante engine replacement.
All thankfully covered without issue, thanks to having the official but very expensive warranty in place.
I also swallow the silly main dealer servicing costs, but I am unsure how, or if the big warranty claim costs would be covered, without the correct main dealer service history in place.
I know the first thing they checked when making a claim under the warranty was that the car was unmodified, and then that the service history dating back to the cars delivery date was up to date and on schedule, as I had to send pictures of my service book over to the dealer on the last 2 large claims.

I mean it is a high number, but a few years ago when my FF was still insured fully comp and warranties
, it was like 6.5k insurance and 4K (or maybe a little more) warranty (euro figures) or something like that and that car was probably worth 130-150k euros at the time - so for an Aventador I don’t find it completely crazy, especially if it is a decent warranty …

Europarts have a new gearbox for a Huracan Performante for £30K so no doubt a new Aventador unit will be slightly higher. Add in labour and that must be a £40K bill.

The gearbox was about 22k plus labour (around 30k fitted with the main dealer labour rates now at approx £270 per hour inc vat).
Performante engine replacement was around a 60k claim including fitting!
Gearbox issues are a well known problem with aventadors (all models and years including the SVJ etc).
You really have to like them to put up with the extra servicing and warranty costs over and above a Huracan.
I would say the Huracan platform from the performante / Evo model onwards, is a better car even, just that the aventador is more of an event to drive, you have to concentrate a lot more, a larger road presence and is a much rarer sight on our roads these days as huracan's and Urus models are a daily sight.

My 1st gearbox replacement, it was fine for approx 2.5 years and 14.5k miles before having to be replaced again!

£90000 on gearboxes, I can see why the warranty is so expensive. Really puts the paltry £5000 I spent getting an F1 system rebuild on my car into perspective.
The Aventador is definitely not a car anyone buys with their sensible hat on, but I'm very glad there are people out there unhinged enough to run them. As you say much more rare and special than a Huracan, and a totally different league from that tarted up Audi.

I mean how the hell is this even possible ?? 😆

Would you put that down to:

Incredible bad luck.
Mental driving style.
Some other factor(s).

None of those, I have used them more than most owners I guess, but never done a trackday or even done silly launch controls.
Clutch wear readings have all shown minimal wear, as I have previously owned 2 e-gear gallardo's, so learned to drive correctly and not to wear out the clutch etc. Reversing up a hill is the quickest way to eat the clutch on these, so never attempt that.
Gearbox's are just the weakest point for the aventador model.
They are used a bit more in the U.S and it is more common over there to have cars with higher miles put on them.
I have read some real horror stories where owners have spent 10 to 20k dollars trying to fix the gearbox with independant garages and specialists, only to get no-where and having to fork out 40k dollars for a new gearbox.
The cars, parts and labour costs in the U.S for exotics are quite a bit more expensive than here!

I showed this to the service manager for 2 well known Lamborghini dealers that I use for work on my Aventador and both have said this is incorrect information. The £7063 is the price for a car coming out of manufacturers warranty (the first year after year 3) andthe £10,600 is indeed for a car that needs an inspection before a warranty.

For all other cars like mine (2018) that need a warranty extension - mine is due next month! They want £9163.11 as the renewal amount.

Can you please share the details of where you were told this please?

No problem, I will send you a private message, my car is a year newer than yours and was bought from Lamborghini Edinburgh with 2 years warranty as part of the deal, I am not sure if this makes a difference. This warranty is due to expire around December this year.
I would only want to post factual information on here, so I will forward you the quote I have received.

I usually don’t bother with a warranty anymore. Will need to make a mental note to definitely get it in case I ever buy an Aventador - would really suck to get a huge bill for a car I would probably drive a maximum of 10k km a year.

Thank you. I would bite their hand off as had confirmation this morning that this was most definately a dealer error in pricing.
