Lamborghini is a brand that depreciates well among its' rivals. Striking design and audi-based construction mean the latest models are not only a perfect car to drive, but a supercar that doesn't often break down.
Rival brands include Ferrari, McLaren, Aston Martin and Porsche.
Ferrari is one of the rival brands that depreciate extremely well. While running Brego's prediction engine, it became clear that Ferrari is one of the greater brands to buy into if you're looking for second hand cars. From new, Ferrari still depreciate a fair amount (examples such as the FF and California). The 458, for example, is a great car that is set to depreciate by no more than £10,000 within the next few years.
Compare that to the McLaren's or Aston Martin's that are depreciating by that amount each month. The 570s can now be picked up for less than £100,000 and the DB11, less than £85,000.
Let's look at the current model offering:
The Aventador is perhaps the definitive model that Lamborghini offer. Since its appearance in 2011 it has been one of the most recognised supercars in the world. From a depreciation point of view, the Aventador has done fairly well for its class.
It started life with a price tag of £250,000 (a hefty sum!) but for that you get a screaming naturally aspirated 6.5L V12. As of 2020, the cheapest Aventador online is just under £165,000 - a depreciation figure of £85,000 for a 9 year old car. Now, we are not saying that £85,000 is not a lot of money - but when talking about depreciation figures for these types of supercars, the Aventador has done very well.
A comparison would be the McLaren 720s, released in 2017, the 720s had a price tag of £220,000 (£30k less than the Aventador) and the cheapest example of one now is priced at £150,000. That's a depreciation figure of £70,000, less than the Aventador - but the 720s has depreciated by this sum over 3 years (compared to the Lamborghini's 9 years).
Here at Brego, we love data! So here are those figures displayed in a different way:
Lambo: £9,500 per year in depreciation.
McLaren: £23,000 per year in depreciation.
As you can see from this, Lamborghini are a brand that depreciate very well! Having said this, buying into the McLaren brand is not a bad thing - read our McLaren Depreciation Page to hear more of our thoughts on this.
The Huracan came out in 2014 with a small ask of £180,000 - after it was reviewed to be somewhat "dull" looking for a Lamborghini - people came around and realised a magnificent platform had been created!
In todays economic world, the Huracan retails for £130,000 - a depreciation figure of £50,000. Once again this sounds like a lot, but compare it to the Aston Martin DB11 - a car that came out at roughly £170,000 in 2017 (3 years after the Huracan) - now selling for £90,000 (an £80,000 loss in depreciation).
Finally, we get to the Urus - a very different direction for Lamborghini but one that allows the brand to expand into the ever-growing SUV market. The Urus has had great debut success, it had a huge hand in doubling Lamborghini's sales. The SUV is currently on sale for £180,000 and has held its value extremely well, some even making money!
This can be related to the demand for a SUV supercar of which the Urus is king.
Lamborghini has a great range of supercars that all hold their value very well. While we've been comparing new to used values, the used market is where we always recommend staying if you want to minimise the depreciation hit.
Buying these cars used opens up a wide range of finance or outright purchasing options. Because the residual value (the depreciation figure at a specific point in the future) is close to the value of the car, the balloon payment can be raised to make for some extremely low monthly repayments.
Brego uses machine learning to calculate depreciation and residual values. This data can be used to achieve the lowest possible monthly payment as we can raise the balloon payment to near the actual residual value.
