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.

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.

Fresh off of disposing Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in one of the most clinical displays of boxing you’ll ever see, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is back to living large like nobody else can.

He pocketed a cool $41.5 million as his fight purse alone, and that number is expected to hit anywhere from $85 to $100 million when all is said and done. So yeah, the nickname fits the man, so they say.

Mayweather’s status as one of the richest athletes in the world also affords him some nice luxuries, one of which he proudly displayed during the recent build-up to the Alvarez fight.

Over in his Las Vegas home, Mayweather has a pretty sick car collection. It’s not sick because of the quantity. It’s sick because of the quality of machines he has inside his Vegas property. Oh, and they’re all white too, which has become a color of choice whenever Mayweather is shopping for a new set of wheels.

Take a look at the collection and tell us you’re not impressed. There’s a Lamborghini Aventador , a Ferrari 599 GTB , a Ferrari 458 Spyder , a Rolls-Royce Drophead , a Bentley Mulsanne , a Rolls-Royce Phantom , a Bugatti Veyron , and his personal favorite, a 1996 Mercedes S600 V12 sedan , which we assume was his first car after turning pro in 1996. In case your head is spinning just trying to tally up the rough total of those cars, it is somewhere between $3.5 and $4 million, depending on the years and the options on each car.

But the best part about Money May’s extravagant car collection? It’s not the only one he has. He’s got one in Miami, Los Angeles, and God knows where else.

That’s how you collect in style, fellas.

Not all of the companies that go to the Frankfurt Auto Show are of the established variety. There are some that are trying to break ground with hopes of catching some attention from the gathered crowd.

German engineering house Zesad is one of them, and while the company has become famous for being the world-wide manufacturer of GT3 products with street-legal license for Lamborghini and Ferrari , it still doesn’t hold the cache as the ;likes of Mansory and Hamann .

Zesad hopes to change all that with its first program for the Lamborghini Aventador . It’s called the Vento GT3 and as you’d expect from a company that deals mostly in racecars, Zesad really took to extremes to give the Italian supercar the kind of modifications that will really set it apart.

Aerodynamic upgrades was the first order of business, and Zesad took the task of giving the Aventador a new aero-hood that accelerates the wind supply going to the car’s engine. A new wing spoiler was also installed on the exotic, as were new diffusers, all with the intention of improving the overall makeup of the Aventador.

To back up its new and admittedly insane body, the Aventador was also treated to a performance modification that included a new engine-management system and a new high-performance exhaust system. With these upgrades in tow, the Lamborghini supercar saw its output increase to an impressive 743 horsepower and around 550 pound-feet of torque — up from the base 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet — good enough to improve the car’s 0-to-60 mph time to just 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 221 mph.

Somewhere in this world, there’s somebody willing to shell out over $1.65 million for a car. Sure, it’s a supercar and its actually a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, but for that price, you can actually settle for about five standard Aventadors in different colors, right?

Well, for the few people that can shell out that much money on an exotic without even breaking a sweat, Mansory has the car for you.

It’s called the Lamborghini Aventador Carbonado Apertos and Masonry will offer just three examples for sale, which is the likely reason for the huge price tag. Besides its exclusivity, the Aventador Carbonado Apertos is the kind of car that only a Swiss tuner with the reputation of Mansory can build.

You want an excess of carbon fiber on your Aventador? Check. You want an interior that’s dressed to the nines, tens, and elevens? Check. You want a car that has over 1,250 horsepower under its hood? Check.

That’s what you’re going to get with this crown jewel program and if you happen to have plans to go to the Frankfurt Auto Show , you can see one of the three models up close and personal.

DMC Luxury has applied its wild Molto Veloce and LP900 upgrade kits to the Aventador Roadster to create the first modified example of this brand-new exotic from Lamborghini . Called the Aventador Roadster ‘Black’, the DMC upgrade includes a laundry list of exterior carbon fiber styling mods to go along with the frightening engine note and intimidating looks.

As if any Aventador needs more street cred, the DMC team’s comprehensive exterior make-over is quite effective at making your Aventador Roadster one of a kind - and looking like an escapee from the nearest race circuit.

The modifications on the DMC prototype show off the wide variety of upgrades offered by the supercar specialist. In fact, all the upgrades shown are available individually as well. Pricing requires significant cash reserves, or perhaps your own oil field. Even so, the upgrades are more custom-tailored and actually far cheaper than ordering all the dress-up aerodynamic accessories directly from Sant’Agata.

As its name implies, this DMC Aventador is indeed Molto Veloce - which means too hot to touch - in the desert sun of the firm’s press photos. With three custom Lambo ’s parked on the street in front of the firm’s Marbella showroom, it looks like DMC has no shortage of wealthy owners seeking the ultimate in supercar personalization.

Up to this point, there aren’t a lot of Lamborghini Avenatador programs that can match wits with what DMC did with its Molto Veloce kit . You can make a case for Mansory , but the Swiss tuner is mostly an outlier in the tuning business.

Now, it looks like SR Auto Group has one that can give DMC Tuning a run for its money. Using the iconic LIberty Walk body kit from Japan , SR Auto Group was able to give the Aventador the kind of sinister aftermarket work that only makes what’s already a beastly looking exotic even more intimidating.

The two-tone finish given to the Aventador, courtesy of the LIberty Walk body kit, can’t be understated because the complementary shades add even more aggressiveness to the Lambo supercar .

With the kit firmly placed, SR Auto Group added the final touches to an impressive body kit, dressing up the Italian supercar with its own brand of wheels, emphatically giving the Aventador a mesmerizing look that’s almost impossible to ignore.

Under the hood, SR Auto Group figured what Lambo did was good enough and left the 690-horsepower V-12 alone. This means it retains the base 2.9-second sprint to 60 mph and 217 mph top speed.

We are all for customization to make your car fit your personality, even on one as bad-ass as the Lamborghini Aventador . But Chris Brown’s decision to make his Lambo look like one expensive Nike Foamposite Camo shoe has us scratching our heads a little.

You have to admit that in the past few months we have seen all kind of crazy custom work, but this is far and away craziest yet! Sometimes people just get blinded by money and do crazy things when they are bored, like make their $387,000 car look like a shoe. Not that we are massive Aventador fanboys, but still that thing is hideous!

Despite the horrible camo job, this supercar is still a hoot to drive, thanks to its 6.5-liter V-12 engine that pumps out an astonishing 700 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque. The Aventador can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and goes up to a top speed of 217 mph.
