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.

A few weeks ago, Vorsteiner — our favorite tuner of high-performance sports cars and supercars — launched the "Vorsteiner Nero," which is a subsidiary specializing in updating cars from Ferrari , Lamborghini , McLaren , Bentley and Rolls Royce .

One of the first packages launched by Vorsteiner Nero is this new Aventador -V LP740. The development of this product took almost a year and in the end, it is basically all about making the Lambo look even more stunning, but it also includes a few changes under the hood.

In order to upgrade the engine’s output, the tuner upgraded the engine ECU to help milk out an additional 40 horsepower, which is evident by its "LP740" name.

The exterior kit is adds new elements made from carbon fiber, like the front splitter, front-lower intake surrounds, side air scoops, rear vent surrounds, and the rear difuser. All of these new elements help improve the aerodynamic efficiency and the aggressive look of the Aventador.

There are only a handful of cars that compete with the Lamborghini Veneno in terms of being a real attention-grabber. So it goes without saying that anytime the Veneno appears on track, we’re going to be drooling all over it, or at least the thought of driving it.

Fortunately, YouTube user Shmee150 always happens to be in the right place at the right time. This time around, he manages to take a video of the mighty Lamborghini supercar doing some laps on the Vallelunga circuit just outside of Rome, Italy.

As you may know, only three Venenos were released out to the public, but this one isn’t one of them. This particular Veneno is actually a factory-owned supercar but even with that designation, the Veneno is still beyond words. Even more so if it’s laying waste to a race track.

Then again, that’s usually what happens when you have a car that packs 750 horsepower and can hit 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds to go with a top speed of 220 mph.

Along with developing some of the coolest cars on Earth, Lamborghini has also developed quite the knack for mixing up some of the greatest colors for its supercars . Despite this massive palette of wonderful hues, some tuners think they have a better idea of what’s best for the Aventador .

We are not talking about any old paint that your local paint company can mix up for you. Nope, we’re talking about a special foil wrap that the folks at Print Tech developed.

To install this intricate orange-red-chrome foliation, Print Tech has tear your Lambo apart, apply the foil, then reassemble the car. No wonder this wrap costs an outrageous &euro10,000 — about $13,760 at the current exchange rates.

Print Tech stated that along with the stunning orange-red shade shown here, customers can choose from a "giant" list of colors, all of them also offered in a matte variant. Sounds pretty cool, but we think we will stick to the colors offered by Lamborghini.

Now, if only we had a little extra scratch after paying off the wrap to actually buy an Aventador ...

On top of this wrap, Print Tech also offers up powder-coated wheels, window tinting and a valve-controlled exhaust system for the Aventador.

Being a bit of a sneakerhead myself, I can appreciate collaborations between the kicks industry and the auto industry. Remember a few years ago when Nike released a special-edition Kobe Bryant sneaker in collaboration with Aston Martin ?

Not to brag, but yes, I have that in my collection.

In any case, the recent LeBron 11/11 Experience held in Miami for LeBron James’ 11th signature sneaker with Nike had a pretty interesting guest during the event: a unique Lamborghini Aventador Roadster that was worked on by auto designer Rich B. Caliente in partnership with Toys for Boys Miami and Lou La Vie.

The special wrap Caliente used on the Aventador was inspired by the first signature release of the LeBron XI, called "King’s Pride." If you know the sneaker game, you might also recognize the South Beach-styled design from the Lebron X Low Championship Pack Edition.

Either way, there aren’t a lot of Lamborghini Aventadors in this world that looks as unique and eye-catching as this one. Kind of makes you wonder why somebody would take off that wrap once the event is offer. It looks awesome on the Aventador and more importantly, fits right into the laid back yet flash lifestyle Miami is known for.

DMC has prepared an impressive catalog of upgrade kits for the Lamborghini Aventador over the years, and it decided that each tenth unit would be marked in a special way.

This new Aventador "Dieci" (Italian for number ten) was specially developed for a customer in Kuwait, and it so happens to mark the 40th DMC-modified Aventador , and along with some pretty cool updates to the exterior and interior, it also received some updates under the hood.

The Aventador wears the "LP700" badge in its name, meaning this model delivers 700 horsepower. However, for the new Dieci edition, DMC changed it to LP900, meaning it boosted the output level to 900 horsepower.

To hit 900 ponies, DMC installed 12 single-intake throttle plates — one per cylinder — then it replaced the fuel pumps, pressure modulators and injection nozzles for better flow, optimized the engine electronics, installed new wiring and added a new titanium exhaust system.

For the exterior updates the new Dieci adds a redesigned spoiler sword and a stunning front-splitter lip, new side skirts, a lightened carbon fiber diffuser and an added tunnel system, plus, of course, a new rear wing spoiler that further improves the aerodynamics at the rear axle.

When someone comes to ask you if you want to spend an entire day with the Lamborghini Aventador coupe and roadster versions, the only correct answer will be:

"Yes, please!"

Or... “Si Si Prego,” in bad Italian if you want to have them for a few extra days.

This is exactly what the guys over the British magazine AutoCar did when they were invited to spend the day with the Aventador.

What can you do when you have both the Aventador Coupe and Roadster in your garage? Not much, right? While most of the people will try to put them next to their usual competitors, AutoCar decided to do something a little bit more interesting. They put the two supercars one next to the other and wanted to see which one is the best. In theory they should deliver the same driving experiences, but in real life is a little bit different.

AutoCar didn’t put the two models on a 0 to 60 mph test, not quarter mile or top speed. Instead they wanted to see if the two models can fly!

Check out the video after the jump to see which of the two Aventador models did the best on this test of jumping talent.

We often hear about news like this and brush it off to move on with our lives, but something about the story of Emilia Palmer really tugs on our heart strings.

See, eight-year-old Emilia suffers from a rare lung illness that requires her to receive oxygen constantly. It’s a harrowing ordeal that nobody, let alone a young girl like her, should go through. But Emilia is a brave little girl and she’s managed to live her life even with her illness.

The Rays of Sunshine foundation found out about her plight and saw fit to give her a pretty cool surprise. Upon finding out her request to get driven in a pink Lamborghini Aventador by Top Gear host Richard Hammond, Rays of Sunshine sprung to work, commissioning an Aventador from H.R. Owen, which they had wrapped in matte pink, and getting the services of Hammond to act as Emilia’s personal chauffeur.

The elaborate surprise had its share of setbacks, but through it all, Rays of Sunshine flew Hammond in to Herefordshire in West Midlands, UK, and the Top Gear host took care of the rest.

It’s a great and inspiring video of a brave young girl finally experiencing her wish come to life, all thanks to the contributions from people who understand that making a difference in one’s life often begins with making them smile.

They say that you only celebrate a 50th birthday once, so when it happens, you might as well make it as memorable as possible.

Italian automaker Lamborghini is in the middle of its 50th anniversary celebrations and since the start of the year, it’s celebrated it with the kind of extravagance befitting of its stature in the industry.

Recently, things took an interesting turn in the United Kingdom when the UK Lamborghini 50th Anniversary 50th Anniversary Tour officially opening its doors to the public.

Held at the Danesfield House in Buckinghamshire, over 50 Lamborghinis participated in the event with models ranging from the classic Countachs all the way to the current Aventador Roadsters . In between, there were Murcielagos , Diablos , Gallardos , and even the one-off Oakley Design Aventador LP760 Nasser Edition.

Needless to say, it was as close to a Lamborghini overdose as you could possibly get, and not surprisingly, Shmee150 was right in the middle of all the festivities with cameras in tow.

It looks like Vorsteiner has developed quite a passion for one Italian supercar , as it announced a new tuning kit for the new Lamborghini Aventador . Just like with all its previous kits, the new one is called Aventador-V , and it features a new dry carbon-fiber package.

In true Vorsteiner spirit, the tuner focused on updating the exterior look of the supercar and as usual, it did quite an amazing job. No updates were made under the hood, but with 700 horsepower and a top speed of 217 mph, who needs more, right? All the tuner did was to add a new, F1-inspired exhaust system that further enhances the great sound delivered by the V-12 engine.

Overall, thanks to the new dry carbon-fiber package, the look of the Aventador was improved significantly, even though the kit only contains subtle updates.
