I Lost Money…On One of The HOTTEST Aventador S’s Of All Time, Was It Worth It?

I have owned 3 Lamborghini Urus’s. And if I own a car more than once, you have to assume that it is a favorite for me. The Urus is an SUV that is absolutely perfect for me. I do like the G-Wagon for its tough and tried nature in the Florida weather. But the Urus appeals more to the desire for a more fun driving experience every time you get behind the wheel.

Another thing that excites me greatly? Money. And the money I have made off my Urus’s, especially this one, has for sure influenced my decision to go back for seconds and thirds.

Comments: I used the lazy approach to selling this car, because it was right before I bought my SVJ, and the opportunity to buy the SVJ was going to be solely through a dealer to retain my tax credit which inevitably lost me money on the car itself. I regretted selling the car, however the upside in the SVJ and the opportunity to buy it as cheap as I did would have been gone forever if I didn’t act immediately. As a result, I made a decision that losing $1,200 to drive a half million dollar car was still by far a VERY successful hack.
