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

This Lamborghini Aventador was one that I won’t ever forget. It is like your first heartbreak as a kid, it sticks with you in on of the most painful ways possible. But if it does anything, its prove that I am indeed human and even I lose money on the cars that I buy.

But when I saw a way to get out of this car, though I have to admit I absolutely loved it, I had to take it. However, if I made the right call or not to take such a hefty loss is still to be decided. Read on and be sure to let me know your thoughts on this one!

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.
