    Aventador Key

    It's very easy to find out which car company owns Lamborghini... Look what I found

    Audi's "Smart Key":


    Aventador's Key:


    Nothing but the top cap has changed - Which has this awful cheap-looking plastic silver mirror finish. Just like those cheap Chinese toys... Oh well, maybe it "feels" better than it looks.
    But back to the topic, if anyone is going to replicate the key, they're probably a step closer

    EDIT: That looks good: http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/81..._3_button.html
    It would just need a "Lamborghini" script at the back, a top cap, and a lambo badge to go with it.

    That is the one used in the Gallardo, not the Aventador

    the audi key shown in the first post actually feels pretty nice. its massive and heavy and despite the plastic feels pretty high quality.

    It's insane how Audi uses those small parts instead of buying a small plastic molding machine (They make just 4 Aventadors a day), when they're selling an $400k car!!!

    @solrac
    This could also be the key they used on the Reventon, not just the Gallardo. The guy you're referring to, is probably a Lambo dealer, or he knows one. They can get New ones as "Replacement" keys for one of their customers. In my opinion the Gallardo one does look better than the Aventador's

    the guy i know says he used to own a lambo dealer so he can get stuff from the manufacture still. Im sure they would be as replacement keys or something like that. i bought a used one from him and only after i bought that used one he told me he can also get new ones.. if i would of known i would of just bought me a new lol. lol

    Oh well, Unless the price difference is very very small, it doesn't matter. You'd get scratches in a month or so anyway

    your absolutely right xengs. i also dont see why the dont invest the extra penny to make a really nice and sophisticated key.
    but judging from the direction vwag is going ( their mbq frame building system f.ex.) one of their long term mail goals in production, is low costs...

    Of course. All rich people have just one goal; That is making more money. Many companies follow the same strategy like VW, not just in the automotive industry; Behringer for example, a professional Audio Equipment manufacturer, which is known for low prices and horrible build quality, recently acquired Midas, the manufacturer that constructs simply the best mixing consoles out there. Back to the topic; They simply aim for the lowest possible cost, even by a tenth of a cent, and the highest possible earnings. I would simply never pay $400k for a car that has an $2 plastic key. If there is a car company that cares about key quality, it has to be Aston Martin.
