    That is a Lambo, ergo glorified Audi, so German.

    Swings & roundabouts. The head of VW Group design is an Italian. They bought Italdesign too.

    A waste of good talent, IMO :D

    Now I have this one. One elderly owner, 26,000 miles, always garaged. Happy days

    The Huracan shares a lot of architecture with the Audi R8 but I don't think there are any VAG components in the Aventador. The Urus however is just a Q7/Cayenne in fetishwear.

    Worth about $3m. As is the top one as well.

    I'd better get playing the lottery then.

    Thinking about it, isn't the first one a similar model?

    Apparently no two were the same. You paid $8,500 in '29 and for that you got a chassis and then you went and met with the designers and they custom built the body to your specifications.

    Yes, it was very common for manufacturers to provide the rolling chassis and then a coach builder to take it from there.

    This looks like what someone in 1912 thought cars would look like in the future.

    It had some proper mental stuff about it. It can still do 90, in second gear. And the crank shaft is hollow and filled 94% full with mercury, to reduce harmonic vibration. To quote Dr Ray Stantz in Ghostbusters "they never made them like this". Our mechanical engineer-historian talking head said "it's the finest engine ever made in America, period, and you could drive out the door from the auction, in Detriot, to Florida and only have to stop for gas.

    Unreliable and badly built according to a friend who almost bought one. He bought a Porsche instead.

    I reckon they were easily the worst quality new car you could buy for much of the company's life; a period which includes the perigee of British Leyland quality in the late 70s. I remember a guy on a another forum saying he did 2,000 miles/year in his TVR just on trips to the dealer.
