Lamborghini Might Only Make 4,000 Aventadors

Yesterday, we brought to your attention that Lamborghini has already sold more than 12 months’ production of its new V12 model, deliveries of which will start in the second half of the year. Now, Autocar has revealed that the car might be even more exclusive than the Murcielago.

According to the British publication, production of the new V12 supercar could be limited to a maximum of 4,000 units, despite the high demand. The Aventador will be built in similar number to its predecessor, the venerable Murcielago.

The news comes via “factory sources”, which state that the new carbon fiber moulds that are utilized to make the car’s monocoque are only good for 500 uses before they have to be replaced. Given the fact that the total production budget has room for only eight such molds, it becomes clear that Lamborghini intends to make a maximum of 4,000 examples.

The entire cell, including tub and roof, is one single physical component, improving rigidity, plus an extremely high level of passive safety for the driver and his passenger. The entire monocoque weighs only 147.5 kilograms (325.18 lb). In combination with the front and rear aluminum subframes, it features an impressive combination of extreme torsional stiffness of 35,000 Nm per degree and weighs only 229.5 kilograms (505.9 lb).

“The super sports car brand from Sant'Agata Bolognese is the only automaker to have fully mastered the extensive CFRP process across a range of technologies in-house - from 3D design, through simulation, test, production and validation using state-of-the-art industrial processes to the very highest quality standards. With the Aventador, Lamborghini is putting its innovative, in-house developed and patented technologies into series production for the first time,” says the Italian supercar maker, descrying its new V12-powered monster.
