Apparently people indulging in post-pandemic “revenge spending” have snapped up almost the entire year’s supply of Lamborghini cars.
Tired of having spent much of the last year cooped up at home, (some, not me) customers are buying high-end items as they emerge from lockdown.
Lamborghini announced it was set for “strong growth” this year, despite being forced to shut down for two months because of coronavirus.
The Italian supercar brand has sold 10 months’ worth of its annual supplies.
Form an orderly queue?

I am uncertain if I could get in and out of the car and I have a feeling the insurance may well be beyond my means.

Oh no I will have to wait months for the one I ordered grin

Oh bugger, just when we had decided that was our next car!

Now I know why the neighbour is clearing out his garage 😀

Does it come in pink, please?

This thread has really made me smile!

Aveline Sat 12-Jun-21 08:52:50

Oh no! Yet another body blow. How can I cope with this dreadful news.

eazybee Sat 12-Jun-21 08:56:39

Oh No!
My son will be devastated.

Grandmabatty Sat 12-Jun-21 08:58:21

I'm so sorry. I ordered one for each member of the family so I'm partly responsible.

Mollygo Sat 12-Jun-21 08:59:38

DH was devastated. He just missed the last one.🤣🤣🤣

Yes, MawBe. I was going to post about this, but found it rather distressing. I tried to place my order for the usual. The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster. I've been told I'll be lucky to get it before May 2022. Ah well, patience is a virtue.

And we have ordered a stair lift. Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

Jaxjacky Sat 12-Jun-21 09:13:21

Not getting my business then, I’ll have to settle for the Maserati as a temporary set of wheels.

Redhead56 Sat 12-Jun-21 09:23:23

Aston Martin for me.

Witzend Sat 12-Jun-21 09:29:04

Oh, Lord, that’s dh’s Christmas present down the drain, then.

Another vehicle in big demand is the camper van. Business is booming for sales and rental. Many campsites are already fully booked till September due to demand for Uk holidays this year.

Aveline Sat 12-Jun-21 09:50:05

If rather be stuck behind a Lamborghini on a country road than a campervan!

I confess to being responsible for this blush. I need my car to match my outfit for the day so have a large selection parked in the second aircraft hanger.
