They're both Italian. They both have V12 engines with around six and a half liters of displacement and upwards of 600 horsepower driving all four wheels. They'll also both cost their affluent buyers over a third of a million dollars to get their hands on (before speculation and everything else is factored in).

That is, of course, only if they can actually get their hands on one. Because according to reports, both the Ferrari Four and the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 have already been sold out for the next year's worth of production.

We say "already" because both cars – flagships for arch-rival marques – were only just unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show days before reportedly selling out. Eight hundred of the former are slated to be produced through the end of 2011, and 700 of the latter. Which means that either their buyers have been plonking down over three hundred thousand bucks sight unseen, or more likely, both companies have been giving select clientele previews.

      Good for both of them.

      A "Benjamin" is a $100 bill... So, if these cars cost 300,000 "Benjamins," you are saying they cost $30,000,000 each.

      I appreciate the flair you are trying to add by using slang, but at least do it in an accurate manner.

      But only one HURTS the eyes. What were Ferrari thinking with this UGLY beast?

      The Ferrari looks like the BMW M-Coupe to me!! Which I love BTW so that's not really a put down, although a Ferrari fan may disagree.
      • 3 Years Ago
      From the side, the Ferrari sort of has the look of the BMW Z3 coupe of a dozen years ago.

      Who wants to see Lambo compete in the 4 seat super car bracket by putting a rumble seat in the front of the Aventador?

      ^^^ this guy
      • 3 Years Ago
      well damn, what am i supposed to buy with all of the money i don't have?
        • 3 Years Ago
        Looks like I'll have the imaginary cash to buy another ivory back scratcher now.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Wow, when you put these two cars side by side it's just sad. The Lambo actually looks like a supercar while the Ferrari looks like someone finally broke into the Sultan of Brunei's garage. Just goes to show you, money doesn't buy taste.

      Ouch, putting the Aventador next to the gonorrhea station wagon really makes the "ferrari" look terrible!
      • 3 Years Ago
      These sold out numbers are never true.
      Many of them are "sold" to dealerships and will pop up and be available for purchase.
      The only difference is that you won't be able to pick out every single little detail as you would in a custome build and buy, which with the Aventador, I don't think too many people will care.

      I can't believe anyone wants that Ferrari thing...ugh.
