The last Lamborghini Aventador may have burned down?

We now know that nearly 4,000 Volkswagen Group cars bound for the United States caught fire near the Azores last week aboard the Felicity Ace boat. If the majority of vehicles from Porsche, Audi, Bentley and Volkswagen replace each other, it is different for Lamborghini.

The last Aventador was on board

Joined by Automotive News, the boss of Lamborghini for North America, Andrea Baldi is very worried. Most of the cars in the group are somehow replaceable. Lamborghi Urus models replace each other and the factory can manufacture others. The real problem comes from the Lamborghini Aventator. Lamborghini announced the end of production of this model and the last model was on board the boat.

Should a production line that has been closed be relaunched?

Baldi told Automotive News that if any of those cars were damaged (which they likely were), Lamborghini would have to find a way to restart production with suppliers in order to fulfill orders. Excerpt from the quote: « At this time we don’t know, and we will have to deal with the problem that this will pose. The car is sold, so there is always a possibility out of 563 units that a cancellation will replace the car. ‘Aventador, but I’d rather hope for now that at least the few Aventadors on the ship will be safe,’ Baldi told Automotive News. He thinks the blaze could cause a six-month delay for customers waiting for vehicles, either being left with the cars that were on board and undamaged or completely new cars.

Porsche restarted production of 911 GT2 RS in 2019

If Lamborghini is to restart production, it will not be a precedent. Volkswagen lost, only three years ago, another shipment of cars at sea and on board were Porsche 911 GT2 RSs. Porsche had to restart production of the model that was finished. The losses of the Felicity Ace fire are estimated at more than 350 million AMERICAN. I bet you that Volkswagen will have a lot of trouble finding an insurer for its next shipment of cars.
