Is a $1 Million Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Coupe a Collectible?

It wasn’t that long ago that people were selling their used cars for more than they paid for them. That is fortunately, for tax reasons, classified just an asset sale when it comes to gains and losses. But what about cars that are targeting collectors and enthusiasts who are buying with a hope that they may be able to sell the car for a profit in a year or two (or longer)? After all, car auctions around the country routinely sell cars for north of the $1 million mark.

And most importantly for this case… How about an ultra-rare Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Coupe that costs nearly $1 million? We already know that Lamborghini has been targeting for more share of the luxury market. And if you are buying any of the Lamborghini cars you probably aren’t too worried about the job market, high gas prices, and those pesky recession fears.

Lamborghini Austin issued a press release notifying the public that it has in-stock the limited edition 2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Coupe for sale. The price tag is $924,898.00. The photo below is from Lamborghini Austin.

OK, so that’s not quite $1 million, but by the time any buyers adds in taxes, insurance, the cost of the added storage and ongoing maintenance it might as well be $1 million.

Buying a Lamborghini is not for those who are worrying about monthly expenses. They sure as hell aren’t the ones who have to worry about the cost of gasoline. The Aventador SVJ Coupe is represented as there only being hundreds in existence.

The press release points out that Car and Driver magazine issued a prized 10 out of 10 rating. Here are just some of the features this ultra sports car boasts:

  • a 6.5-liter V8 engine;
  • 759 horsepower and 531 foot-pounds of torque;
  • a 7-speed automated manual smooth-shifting transmission for “incredible precision in timing their gear changes.”
  • power to all four wheels for tremendous traction;
  • zero to 60 miles per hour time of just 2.8 seconds;
  • it can reach 100 miles per hour faster in just 6.0 seconds;
  • a top speed of 217 miles per hour;
  • it can pull 1.1 gravities on the skid pad.
  • Driver safety — stability control, side-impact beams, fixed rollover protection, and more.
