Does anyone know what the ball park margins are on super and hyper cars?
On a 488 GTB?
Got me thinking because the new Lamborghini Centenario is a limited run of 40 units and each one is roughly $2.4M, or around $100M in revenue. I wonder what the margins are for Lambo on that kind of car.
I feel like they wouldn't be very high if you include R&D, materials, and labor, with R&D acting as the largest cost center.
Lambo and a lot of other brands are part of publicly traded companies. Here... from Bloomberg:
I'm pretty cynical on hybrids. They were great for kicking off the electrification movement after the EV1. Now, it's generally an overcomplicated powertrain. I'm fine with forced induction engines - and the nicer ones are phenomenal these days.
I drive my 'automatic' turbocharged car nearly everyday in SoCal traffic and it's amazing how well the engine is in managing the turbos down to many levels of obsession (separate post if needed). I wouldn't dismiss them off hand.
for a while, i drove an automatic turbo (R33 Skyline) and it had plenty of "pep" when changing lanes from almost a standstill. traffic can be horrendous. need that instant power on tap.
now drive a manual. power comes on strong at 2k rpm. every day is leg day.......
I'm sorry for your loss.....
