Such is the appetite for the new Lamborghini Huracan – the replacement for the Gallardo – is attracting premiums of up to £30 as it starts to arrive in the UK.
The new Lamborghini Huracan – Lamborghini’s take on the Ferrari 458 and McLaren 650S, and the replacement for the long in the tooth Gallardo – is due to start arriving this summer in the UK.
Tim Marlow, Director of Magnitude Finance, has revealed that two of their clients are amongst the first UK buyers due to get their car, and despite financing the purchase they’ve already decided to flip their car as soon as it arrives for a quick return.
One has already secured a £27k premium for the car – which he won’t even bother to drive before he sells it on – and the expectation is that premiums could hit £30k in the first months after the Huracan arrives, such is demand for Lamborghini’s new supercar.
But with UK dealers expecting just 4 cars each in 2014 (although Lamborghini London are getting a few more) those buyers who got in quick for an early delivery are sitting on a near 20 per cent profit as the less organised seek to get behind the wheel.
But the premium won’t last long, although we’ll probably see it back for a short time as Lamborghini deliver the Huracan Spyder and Huracan Superleggera in the not too distant future..
