Ever wonder why Lamborghini cars are so much more expensive than their competitors? Ever wonder why Lamborghini only sells a few thousand units every year and calls it a win when other companies are selling millions of units every year?
In 2019, Lamborghini sold a total of 8,205 vehicles, which was a 43% increase in sales from last year. This increase in sales was largely due to the success of their first-ever super SUV Lamborghini Urus.
Ever wonder why your normal car doesn’t look like a Lamborghini? Here’s why it can never look like a Lamborghini:
Learning From History: The Case of Lamborghini Countach
It all started when Enzo Ferrari insulted a tractor tycoon, Ferruccio Lamborghini, who then set out to build luxury sports cars that would rival Ferrari. This is the Lamborghini Countach, designed by the legendary Marcello Gandini. The Countach was produced by Lamborghini between 1974 and 1990.
There’s no denying that the car looks awesome. Even today, it’s a car that would turn heads if it’s on the road. However, there are several drawbacks to it as well. The seating style is cramped, the visibility is poor, and the cabin is hot and noisy because the engine is very close by and minimally insulated.
In other words, it’s not a very practical design. However, most Lamborghini designs aren’t practical. To understand why regular cars can’t look as cool as Lamborghini, you have to understand the guiding principle behind the design of Lamborghini.
Lamborghini Isn’t Made To Be A Regular Car
Ferruccio Lamborghini once famously said, “Lamborghini is refinement, luxury, and perfection.” Pair that with the Lamborghini design motto of “expect the unexpected” and you get a clear understanding of what Lamborghini cars are supposed to be: the pinnacle of performance.
So, since a Lamborghini isn’t supposed to be a regular car, it doesn’t give any consideration to factors that regular car manufacturers have to consider. As you can tell from the design of Countach, and pretty much all the other Lamborghinis that have followed, they’re not designed for practicality, but they do look damn good.
In other words, designing regular cars like Lamborghini means car manufacturers would have to throw design practicality out the window and only focus on the looks and performance. This is not just impractical but also highly unfeasible.
Not every company is manufacturing sports cars. In fact, most are focusing on selling as many cars as possible to as many customers who can afford them. Therefore, designing each car to look like a Lamborghini would be costly, impractical, and nonsensical.
