Yes, the first annual production batch of Lamborghini Aventador units have been sold out – but how man Aventadors does Lamborghini actually plan on producing? Well, reports suggest that the new Lambo flagship will have a similar production run as its predecessor, the Murcielago.
Sources from Lamborghini’s factory suggest that the carbon fiber molds used to construct the Aventador’s monocoque can be used as many as 500 times before they have to be replaced. With the Aventador budgeted to for eight sets of monocoque molds, Lamborghini is expecting to build a maximum of 4,000 units.
The Lamborghini Murcielago production ran to 4099 examples.
Refresher: The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 will be powered by a 6.5L V12 engine making 690-hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. Mated to the company’s new ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) 7-speed transmission, 0 to 60 mph will come in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph. The Aventador is an all-wheel-drive supercar courtesy of Lamborghini’s Haldex 4-wheel drive system. Prices will start north of $375,000.
