    Doug Demuro called it the best car he's driven in his review. He gave it the highest sports car score. It's 1 of 1499 made. I assume that means 1/3 come to the US. I actually passed up an allocation because I thought it was silly, am I gonna regret it?

    It just looked like a car with a lot of cheap plastic bits and the one I built was $360k just thought way too steep for that kind of car but I just saw one in Chicago listed for $500k+.

    Curious what others are thinking about this car

    I don’t know why someone would really want to thrash an expensive car off road. Neat, kinda like the old 911’s used for rallys I guess. I d prefer a 392 Jeep or a modded WRX & the rest in a Huracan, telesto grey if possible . Future classic? Time will tell.
  3. Expensive is all relative.

    The folks that I know who have bought the Sterrato (or the Dakar) to actually drive (and not bubble wrap) daily things like a Bugatti Chiron or have a T.50 on order.

    Taking price out of the equation. As value / cost is subjective. No one really knows what car will / won't be a future classic. Limited edition top end V12 Fezza's seem to do well. I'm sure the new Daytona will be. But I don't think the Sterrato will be. It's a Huracan and a lot of those made in various iterations over the years. Huracan production is about to finish and then the new (better ???) model will be out. 1500 is also quite a few in limited edition, not really low numbers so will be easier to procure. Example, you can always get a hold of a F40 but F50 tend to be harder to come by. But F40 prices way up. Saying that, 1500 Sterrato examples in a world of 8billion + people is still a tiny, tiny number.

    Also, if the car is used for it's designed purpose, off-road etc, then would you /others, as future buyers be put off by that fact? Had a hard life etc. I'm sure examples that have sat in collections and not been used in that respect will command a higher price. It's an interesting departure for Lambo and I think real future value could be added if they were to officially run it in the World Rally series. now that I would love to see

    I think you will either love it and want one or not love it so much and not buy one. Buy one because you love it, think it's fantastic and want it in your garage to enjoy, not as an investment and possible future status. Long time dead etc !

    Bottom line, no one has a crystal ball, if I did, I would be on a very large yacht not working!

    Doug's thesis on why it would be such a special car long term is because there's nothing like it. Even the Dakar isn't quite as hardcore. He said imagine if they made an off-road diablo? I think he's right all these sports cars are mostly the same, you're paying for a little more speed, little rarer car,etc. This is a whole new driving experience that at the moment nothing can match, not even a Dakar. In that regard he is correct. It's like all these electric cars coming, they all feel the same, cars are losing their soul, quickly, and I think he's right about the sterrato in that sense.

    Im not going to cry over spilled milk, again the one I built was $360k before taxes, I felt it was a bit much for a car where I could never use it's true potential so I passed. I still have an EVO Spyder and I think that's the best iteration of the Huracan for what I want, just top down fun, but these sterratos are definitely an interesting build when we look at them in the scope of what else is similar. I see someone posted Dougs vid above, he made another one after it with his top future classics and the sterrato was #1 too, he even said he never buys new cars but was interested in this because it was just so much fun.

    Of course it’s a future classic…….. great product very unique. If they never do another NA like this, then it should do really well.

    The Sterrato's proposition is really quite unique, so I can see the collector appeal. This might lessen a bit though if the Sterrato becomes part of the model cycle. You know, release the base car, the Spider, then the Superleggera, then the Sterrato...

    Probably will be the case, why not, its easy money, but its likely this will be the only NA one with a V10. The rest will likely all be hybrids.

    I think the thing too with sterratos is of the 1499, how many will remain in pristine condition 10 years out. Most will get used, beaten, destroyed, etc. I have to think the few that dont get used are going to command a big premium. I never really understand why people care so much about their car being an investment, just use the thing, we all have enough money as is. My EVO Spyder is my daily and it just crossed 20k miles. I love it, who knows what I lost but its probably a ton.
