Lamborghini Aventador

Lamborghini Aventador

  The Lamborghini Aventador is a two-seater hyper sportscar and was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011. The Aventador will replace the Murciélago and uses a 6.5-litre, V12 engine which produces 700 HP at 8,250 rpm and 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. This output is just enough to sprint the car from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds while blasting off a top speed of 217 mph.

Matt Farrah is at it again, as in the latest episode of "The Smoking Tire," he puts classic and modern Lambos in a head-to-head battle with the ultra-rare Lamborghini Countach LP5000QV taking on the brand-new Lamborghini Aventador Roadster . Oh, Matt, why must you make us so jealous?

This particular 1988 Countach was upgraded with gold magnesium alloys, fender flares and oversized rear wing and a Euro-spec bumper. Under its hood, the Countach retains its factory V-12 engine with an output of 420 horsepower. In the other corner is the new Aventador Roadster, which is powered by a 6.5-liter, V-12 engine with an amazing 700 ponies punishing the asphalt.

Your first impression may be that the Countach has no chance against the Aventador, but everyone knows that classic Lamborghini models were some of the best cars developed and were true drivers’ cars.

Check out the video to see which of the two supercars did the best during the test drive!

There’s something to be said for an aftermarket company that can just roll out of bed in the morning, decide that it wants to build a concept model based on a Lamborghini Aventador , and then proceed to envision what it would do with it when it decides to make it.

That’s how it goes over at DMC these days. During a recent interview with LamboCars, the supercar tuner was asked what it could whip up should a customer say he wants a heavily modded Aventador without any budget constraints.

And this is what DMC came up with; an indescribable piece of engineering that we don’t even know where to begin. It’s already been christened as the Lamborghini Aventador LP1200-4R and in true Lambo nomenclature, the "1200" on its name is representative of the 1,200 horsepower DMC is capable of getting out of the exotic’s 6.5-liter, V-12 engine. Doing that, though, will constitute adding twin-turbos, as well as increasing the displacement by 1.2 liters to a mammoth 7.7-liter engine.

To be clear, this is still a concept, and there are no hints of it being built and developed in the future. But when the company said that it could build a $2.5 million program for the Aventador and it shows something like this, clearly DMC isn’t joking.

But get this; that 1,200-horsepower output it can get out of the Aventador doesn’t even compare to what it can do when a customer really wants a missile on his hands. According to DMC, if somebody really wants to push all the boundaries of speed and power, 2,000 ponies is attainable.

As far as the aerodynamics of the car are concerned, DMC has also prepared a list of new components it would want on the project, which includes a new body kit, stronger air intakes, more air vents, an adjustable-fin air brake system, an adaptive ride height, gold-plated intakes and a new set of 20- and 21-inch wheels on the front and back.

All told, the Lamborghini Aventador LP1200-4R is being touted as having 1,200 horsepower and 671 pound-feet of torque, while weighing just 3,473 pounds. When it’s fully stretching its legs, the concept is capable of hitting 62 mph in 2.3 second to go with a top speed of somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 mph.

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster

A Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is priced at $445,300, which is quite a lot for most people. But what if we would tell you that you can get it for "free?" Well, maybe not totaly free, as you will have to buy a penthouse in Damac Maison, The Dubai Mall Street, which starts at about $2 million. This offer comes as part of the 2014 Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) promotion.

Company official said "Customers buying a penthouse in Damac Maison, the Dubai Mall Street during DSF will be given a 2014 Lamborghini Aventador roadster with their purchase."

Damac Maison, The Dubai Mall Street is Damac’s first service hotel apartment project and was designed by German architects Koschany & Zimmer. Seems like a good deal to us.

The same company announced that buyers of other properties will get either a BMW or a Mini Cooper , depending on the size of the house bought.

While Lamborghini failed to offer us an in-depth look on the new Aventador LP720-4 50° Anniversario , Youtube user Saabkyle04 had the chance to get up close and personal with the new supercar and shot a very cool video of the most extreme Aventador up to this point.

The video includes start up shots, performance and fuel economy figures, the occasional track data, and build quality. You will also learn about all the exterior and the interior features, so that when you have $500k ready in your pocket, all you’ll have to do is go to your local dealership and buy the car.

And of course the video could not be complete with all those cool rev and exhaust notes with both interior and exterior perspectives.

As a reminder, the Aventador LP720-4 50° Anniversario is powered by a 6.5 liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 720 horsepower - an increase of 20 horsepower over the base car. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph.

What is the best way to finish a year? With a very cool test drive involving two of the most powerful supercars currently available on the market: a Lamborghini Aventador Coupe and an Aventador Roadster .

The idea belong to the British magazine AutoCar - which is at its second test of this kind. If you remember, in the first one, it wanted to see which of the two versions can fly . This second test is a little bit more concise as it involves a full length challenge: AutoCar wanted to see how far they can jump, how hard they can drift and how fast they really are.

So, what do you think, which of the two versions is the best on the test track? Check out the video to see if you are right and if you guessed the winner! Of course, do not forget to turn up the volume, really high!

Until Lamborghini decides to bring a SV (SuperVeloce) version for its Aventador supercar, the guys over DMC decided to develop their own SV version for the supercar, except that for them "SV" stands for "Special Version".

The new tuning kit is called "LP988 Edizione-GT" and, as you probably have guessed it, "988" indicated the incredible amount of power found under the hood: 988 horsepower. According to the tuner this is the "Stage 3" upgrade kit offered for the Aventador, and it expects to be as successful as both the Molto Veloce and the LP900 SV Limited Edition announced last December.

DMC got its design inspiration from the Veneno supercar unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, and, while the LP988 Edizione-GT won’t be as expensive as the Lamborghini supercar, it surely be equally crazy.

While DMC kept this a secret for now, we expect the LP988 Edizione-GT to have been specially developed for some rich guys in Dubai or China.

People around the world cook different animals and birds around the holidays, but no mater the meat you need to prepare, cooking can sometimes be very difficult. However, Youtube user Shmee150 found a very special way of cooking the Christmas turkey that is right up our alley.

He makes use of a car, of course, but not an ordinary car. He uses a Lamborghini Aventador with some cool updates from Oakley Design. Oakley’s updates include a full titanium exhaust system that adds another 60 horsepower to the car’s final output and a new rear spoiler that improves the car’s aerodynamic features.

Okay, so how do these updates help cook a turkey? Well, thanks the new exhaust system, the Aventador literally spits fire, so Shmee150 held the turkey to the flames as they shot from the tailpipe.

Of course, we are pretty sure that the turkey he ate in the end of the video is not the one cooked with the Aventador’s exhaust, especially considering the Aventaor isn’t the cleanest-running car on the planet at 370 g/km of CO2 emissions, but the idea behind this video is pretty cool.

Given a choice, I would choose the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta over the Lamborghini Aventador . However, there are a majority of folks who would fall for the brutal power and aggressive looks of the Aventador. No wonder then, the big Lambo is so popular. Given the high demand for this 700 horsepower supercar , owners are more keen to personalize their cars.

That’s where aftermarket tuners like Premier Autowerkz come in. They have recently launched upgrades for the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 . The extensive update includes a full body kit, fixed rear spoiler, new paint scheme and wheels.

The exterior is finished in a very attractive shade of blue and gloss black. The body kit consists of a carbon-fiber front bumper and splitter with a more aggressive front air intakes. A new carbon-fiber rear diffuser has also been added, and the exhaust system has been reworked for a unique Lambo howl. The standard retractable spoiler has been done away with and replaced with a fixed carbon-fiber piece.

PUR wheels adorn the large wheels arches on this Lamborghini Aventador . PUR RS05 wheels finished in metallic silver gives the car a sporty and distinct appeal. Brake calipers on this example are finished in a shade of gold. Under skin, the Aventador uses a the same 6.5-liter, V-12 with 700 horsepower and all-wheel drive. ’Launch Control’, thanks to the dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard.

Now this is a race you won’t see everyday: a Bugatti Veyron Vitesse versus a Lamborghini Aventador and BMW S1000RR . The idea was to see which of the three vehicles is the fastest in a straight line.

In terms of raw horsepower, this race would be 1,200 horsepower versus 700 horsepower versus 193 horsepower, so it appears that the Veyron has the biggest advantage. As we always say, horsepower doesn’t mean everything...

In terms of performance figures, the Veyron can hit a top speed of 255 mph and goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds, the Aventador up to 217 mph and sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, while the S1000RR can hit a top speed of over 125 mph, per BMW. So, which one will be better on the race? Check out the video to find out!

In the past few months, we’ve seen quite an impressive number of tuning kits offered for the Italian supercar Lamborghini Aventador . Pretty much all of them focused on upgrading the engine’s output level, but some of them also focused on upgrading the exterior look of the supercar.

One of these tuning kits was announced by the folks at RevoZport. The tuning kit, dubbed the "LaMotta," takes its name from Giacobbe "Jake" LaMotta, nicknamed "The Bronx Bull" and "The Raging Bull." He was a professional American boxer who was the World Middleweight Champion in 1949.

As expected, most of the updates were made under the hood, where the 6.5-liter, V-12 engine was tricked to deliver 820 horsepower — a 120-horsepower increase over the car’s standard 700 horsepower. This increase was obtained by remapping the ECU and installing a new exhaust system made from inconel — a nickel-based alloy with chromium and iron.
