    After seeing it at the factory, I have two practical concerns with its design:
    - the headlights look like an incredible dirt nest
    - how long can you park it on the street before some smart guy throws his garbage in the exposed engine compartment, or even unplugs a cable?

    Oh, and the matte paints look better, much better.
    There's a beautiful navy blue matte car with a red and black interior at the factory. That one turns heads.

    I think the sounds you are hearing are we want to stay in their good graces so we will be invited for some one on one time with the car for a review so they can increase their channel's presence

    and they are genuine in that desire...

    as for me, good luck to those new owners, exceedingly complex drivetrain, alien sounds emanating, just hope they get the battery right so no self-immolation events

    If you look closely, as currently designed, it will be a potential ignition source for flammable debris that gets caught in the chambers and works its way down the headers, which are not all that far down in the frame...

    It's such a strange design.
    That rear hood isn't even pretty to look at, and having visited the factory's carbon fiber department, I can attest that it's a hell of a lot of work to make that part.

    Any ideas as to why they decided to leave the front radiators exposed with no mesh grilles covering them? No one from Lamborghini seems williing to answer, and they keep editing the official photos they release of it to make the front radiator areas seem like an area of nothing but void. Would've been easy to hide them using a mesh grille of some sort.

    I never had the engine exposed
    I see your point. When I was there in New York they said this car is lighter by 100 lbs including all the extra electric motors and battery over the Aventador. They were very concerned about the weight. Now I do agree that some plastic or carbon fiber piece there would not kill the deal.

    Maybe some part of the Revuelto is lighter than its predecessor, but not the entire car. By Lamborghini's own documentation it is nearly 4000lbs without fluids, that is much heavier than before (nearly 500 lbs heavier).

    Car will be 2000kgs with fluids and the driver.
    This is becoming absurd.

    I received the Canadian price list today and my Giallo Countach pre-config spec works out to around $880,000 with luxury tax. We're still waiting to receive the final spec so the price increase or decrease. Two options that stood out to me was the paint which is $16,0000 and the carbon steering wheel which is $10,000. The interior comes with standard carbon.

    $646k USD is kind of expected but even then you step back and say "wow..." To think a regular line production car is commanding that kind of price. An Enzo was $678,000?

    A young teller at my bank is a car guy. He was asking me how much a 296 costs. When I broke it down with options, it dawned on me that a GTS with 3 layer paint is approaching what a Carrera GT cost new in 2004 [$448,000]. I remember seeing several new CGT sit on dealer floors, unsold for a year or more.

    But $448k was the absolute top-of-the-line car for Porsche! Of course now I'm getting to the point in my career where that number is within reach, but $1.5m isn't. My real heartbreak is how 288GTOs jumped like 12x.

    This too, annoys me. I'm OK to leave the intake blank but in that case have a black rad! The light silver colour is detracting and acting like a focal point.

    In the old days, as BHP was hard to gain it was considered prudent to try to reduce weight. I thought my Countach is heavy at 1400 odd KG's but seems to be a lightweight compared to modern cars. I know safety and comfort factors add to mass but 2 ton weight is significant.

    Says "Ah dude . . . that is so cool" a lot :D

    Surprised that when the car went past his open window, could not hear it at all. Muted at low rev's I'm sure for noise emissions. Does the car have exhaust valves that open at x RPM?

    well....it should be said that miura was king of gold chain weaerers in the 60's
    i know a local guy that had one second hand back then and it was percieved at that sort of car: tasteless people, young music stars, playboys etc..
    so nothing changed
    we should not confuse the way vintage lambos are seen today as what they looked like when new or used cars in period

    p.s. i do believe miura and countach are great design but both appealed a lot to gold chainers in period

    Hi Emilio, my comment purely related to the cars the Ferruccio set out to build - 350GT, 400GT, Islero and Espada not the ones he was talked into..

    Recently visited the factory and seen the car in the flesh on the production line. Not customers cars. It's a lot better when seen live and not in pics. I still think the colour choice will play a large part.

    Also, they have sold the last of the Huracan, you can't order one now. So something else coming in the next 2 years I suspect.

    My guess is the production line isn't running at 100% capacity.

    The Huracan replacement will be shown some time next year but I did hear that they're showing the EV concept at Quail this year.
