Brand New Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster Crashed But You Can Have It For $200,000
It Is A One Off With Only 500 Ever Produced
Published October 18, 2017
With only 500 units produced, the Lamborghini Aventador SV is easily one of the most valuable automobiles in the world. Now, there are 499 left. Or, at least 499 and a half. The owner of this stunning blue Aventador SV Roadster probably made a pass a little bit too fast (not particularly hard to do with a Lambo) and found himself in a front-end collision with something. We’re not sure whether the car was deemed a total loss or not, but considering the fact it’s being sold by State Farm Insurance, it’s a pretty good bet.
Nevertheless, Copart USA listed the car for sale with the current bid at $212,000.
That’s right folks, for almost a quarter of a million dollars, you can have a very special Lamborghini that’s going to take another $100,000 to fix.
So why is the price so high? And better yet, why is it that even at $212,000, the reserve is still not met?
Well you see, this particular Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster covered only 73 miles since it left the production line. Considering its price as new tops at $636,290, 200 grand starts sounding like a bargain basement price. The 750hp V12 is likely intact seeing as it’s at the rear of the car, and many of the super expensive components probably survived the crash. Either way, that’s still $200K for a wrecked roadster.
Bidding Process Still Underway for this Aventador SV Roadster
At the time of this writing, the current bid is $212,000, but that price may go up additionally as the bidding process is still open. If the carbon monocoque chassis did not get damaged in any way, the car could, in theory, be returned to its former glory. However, if the chassis did sustain damage, the repair would be close to impossible, and a full replacement highly unlikely.
As a refresher, let me just remind you that this car features an awesome 6.5-liter V12 engine with 750 hp, all-wheel-drive, an advanced active aero setup and enough grunt to accelerate to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. It can even reach 217 mph; it’s a jewel of the car world. Especially considering that it represents one of only 500 units ever produced.
Someone with enough financial security to justify this purchase is most definitely out there, and to that person, we simply say: please save this car from its untimely demise.
