There’s a certain quote that car writers like to drag out when talking about Lamborghini. Attributed to Frank Sinatra, it’s simply “you buy a Ferrari when you want to be somebody, you buy a Lamborghini when you are somebody.” Anyone reading this who took the advanced course in cliches will notice that I have still used it, and there’s a reason for that: despite being a cliche, it’s accurate.
I’m not going to talk mess about Ferrari. Their cars are incredible, and they’re responsible for some of the greatest ever. However, everyone knows them. They’re so famous that a red Ferrari is just a common show of status (or insecurity) these days. Lamborghinis, though? They’ve still got a bit of edge, a bit of mystery, something sexy and unknown. However, they do also depreciate tens of thousands of dollars in value over the first three years of their life. If you’ve had your fun and want to part-ex your way to another car, the answer is simple. Sell your Lamborghini. Here’s how.
Doing Your Research
It’s obvious, I know, but for the love of all that is holy, research your car’s average selling price. The price of an Aventador, a Diablo, a Miura, a Murcielago, are all going to be extremely different, and will further vary depending on spec. I don’t wish to teach you how to suck eggs, but too many people see a similar looking car to theirs and just list it at that price. Either it’s too high, and they never sell, or it’s too low and the buyer gets an unbelievable bargain. Great for them, not so much for you.
Get It Fixed, Even If You Think It Doesn’t Need It
I say this every time, but you need to fix up your car before you sell it. Torn carpets, minor scratches, a loose knob, or any such minor issue can all put buyers off, if they suspect that there may be greater issues lurking. Take it to a Lambo Assistance Center and get it serviced by someone who knows exactly what they’re doing.
Lamborghinis look insanely gorgeous from every angle, and you should capitalize on that. Don’t just take the pictures on your driveway, either, or even worse, in your garage. Get the car out in an open space, with good lighting. The golden hour is good, just before sunset, but if you’d rather not wait, just do it on a sunny day, with good lighting. Try and avoid any glare, or any over-saturation on the colors, but aside from that, you can’t go wrong.
List Your Lamborghini
Luckily for you, this is the easiest step. You can list your used Lamborghini on Exotic Car List. Here, you’ll find an audience who will appreciate the car’s true worth, and won’t try too hard to undercut it.
