    Lambos hybrid tech is 'light years' ahead of the competition. Sure.....

    If any of that is true, I think it’s going to kick ass. 11,000rpm redline on a 6.5l v12? Yes please. Sounds like it will kill anything below the $2-3m (which is over 6x the price) range that’s out there now.

    Ya, of course that's what came out of the event.

    Didn't click, but gut feeling is 11k redline sounds "overly optimistic" at best for an engine of that size. Have we come that far, that quickly? I know a guy with a V12 Ferrari engine that's about 20yo and can't do 9k rpm with significantly less displacement. That's a lot of shit to be changing direction a lot of times.

    You can tune the current 6.5l to rev to 9000, so I don’t think 11,000 is a stretch. We shall see in due time though, as much as I hate the idea of hybridization- I think this car will blow peoples minds when comparing to others in the price range.

    Most interesting cars nowadays are basically vaporware.

    If I can't buy one of the short list of cars I find interesting (z06 or gt4), then they may as well not exist

    But that last 22% is not simply and extra 22% of effort from what an aftermarket, extreme tuner can accomplish. It's a step change.

    Don't get me wrong - in all for it and I want to see it. But it sounds like a stretch target.

    @Buster The Z06 and GT4 are tough cars to get unless you’re deep rooted in the brand. You should have bought the red Huracan EVO I sent you 2 years back. If you didn’t like it, you would have made at least $70k selling it!

    They’ve spent over 5 years and €50m on research development for the new V12 hybrid so it better be something special​

    Buster is focused on best asset classes which are things with Realtors, not Italian cars with sketchy electrics...

    I think both of us have amply demonstrated over the years that your powers of foresight far exceed mine. Seriously.

    I remember you telling me to buy that red one, and I damn well should have.

    I was just busting your balls, I feel your sentiments about the current state of automotive generally as well.

    Supposedly this is the closest render to the actual new V12 replacement. Still not much leaked yet surprisingly. I would be very happy, basically a better looking Sian for a 1/8 of the price. I’m sure the rear end will look a lot better too.

    I like the rear. I bet the front will look cleaner.

    I mean it’s a V12 Lambo, the front can be basically as loud as it wants to be

    I think the rear diffuser could get over itself though

    Did someone have a stroke before writing the commentary for this commercial?

    Well…

    Spoken word rap, without carrying syntax AND accents will cause that.

    Maybe it should be arranged

    Dust is gold dirt - for the bold.

    Not the way they did. That was a brutal commercial

    Yeah, from a mass production outfit it might be unrealistic.

    But we are already at 11,100 rpm in a big V12.. in a semi-produced car.

    So maybe they are shooting for 11, Spinal Tap did it.
