    Arrow World's largest Lambo dealer closes

    World's largest Lamborghini dealer closes - BusinessWeek

    Lamborghini's separate sales company in the United States says the dealer closed because of its own mistakes, not the economy.
    Should Comcast, which is buying NBC, have more motorsports coverage on VERSUS and now NBC? Does North America need a racing tv channel? Find the answer to that exact question on facebook.

    It's what they get for selling huge fuel-guzzling leviathans that haven't been updated since the 1970s.

    ...Oh, wait.

    I don't get it... Which mistakes? If you sell 10% of all the Lamborghinis made in the World how can you fail?

    Maybe too many customers default on auto loans that work the same way as house mortgages?

    They dont sound like they sell to the class of people who make loans.

    I don't know, I can understand your average Joe who makes $50k a year defaulting his $250k mortgage, but your $10 million/year celebrity defaulting a Lambo loan seems odd.

    Most likely just ran the business really badly.

    well, pretending the money the dealer makes is yours to spend, trying to pass your own lamborghini as company expenses....there´s a whole lot of ways

    now that Porsche owns VAG, Audi, Lamborghini, there will probably change it into a Porsche dealership....

    Or maybe they realised they could get the same much cheaper from a nearby Audi dealer...

    Well I mean one thing could be all the expenses they were incurring on marketing campaigns with celebs.. No matter how high your margins are, you spend like there's no tmr and there might not be..

    And for an epic quote:

    Gallardo owner Joe Madeuplamboowner commented "Son of a b***h. Where am I gonna get my baby serviced now? I got a load a strippa's I got lined up to show this car off to an the damn thing has one a dem idiot lights on."

    Hmmm, can't imagine too many rap stars wanting the R8 instrad of a Gallardo in their latest "Booze, bitches 'n bros" video.

    Late this year in NZ, we've seen a surge in fire-sale auctions of luxury cars by: Bentley Continentals, 430's, DB9's, etc (one of the Continentals sold for approx 66% of retail value - bargain!). Seems some of the wealthy clients defaulted on lease payments when their investments shrunk in the credit crunch. Lots of those cars are sold to people with financial houses of cards. Betcha the dealership got stung by repayment defaulters.
