Lamborghini cars

  Lamborghini is an Italian car manufacturer that was founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963 with the objective of competing with Ferrari. Lamborghini gained international acclaim in the 60’s for the Muira and after hard times starting from the mid 1970’s to filing for bankruptcy and three changes in ownership, Lamborghini came under Chrysler 1987. The company was eventually sold to Audi in 1998 and in the start of this century it eventually started to witness success under Volkswagen.

What we have here, my friends, is a highly-modified Lamborghini Jalpa — a car that in its day, wasn’t all that quick — but now easily lays down 10-second quarter-mile runs like it was a Sunday drive. It’s all thanks to a General Motors LS1 V-8 (350-cubic inches/5.7-liters) with a Magnuson supercharger bolted on. There’s no word on what this Lambo’s American heart pumps out, but it has to be significantly more than the 255 horsepower from the car’s original mill.

Yes, back in 1981 through 1988, Lamborghini produced the Jalpa with a double-overhead-cam, 3.5-liter (210-ci) V-8 that only laid down minimal power. The car was marketed beneath the Countach in price, performance and size. While it wasn’t very stout, its smaller size gave it better outward visibility and better slow-speed handling. Its 0-to-62 time was said to be six seconds flat on its way to a 15.4-second quarter-mile time. Its top speed was rated at 145 mph.

Sadly, 1988 was the Jalpa’s final year in production, as Chrysler bought the Italian automaker and axed the model. Only 412 were made.

Fast forward to the present, Jalpa number 387 makes it’s way down the quarter-mile strip at Calder Park Raceway in Australia. Its supercharged 350 small block is backed by a Toyota automatic transaxle and power is sent to the massive slicks mounted at the rear. Those boys down under sure know how to make a gnarly beast.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

The Gallardo is the reigning best-selling Lambo , and it looks like its successor is off to a good start in unseating it.

Today, Lamborghini announced that the Huracan already has 700 orders on the books, despite the Italian company not officially announcing its release date yet. Of course, I’m sure that Lamborghini let the future Huracan owners know the approximate date during its ongoing VIP preview tour, but it is still impressive that this many people are comfortable enough in the supercar to lump down a nice down payment.

Then again, a car hailing from Lamborghini rarely sees showrooms before orders start rolling in. Add in the 5.2-liter V-10 that smolders rubber by way of 610 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, and I can see why people are clamoring to get their hands on it. This powerhouse of an engine is enough to get the Huracan to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and up to a top speed in excess of 202 mph.

Okay, okay, maybe it’s not that big of a surprise to see it become a hot seller before its official release.

Let me know in the comments section if you think the Huracan will unseat the Gallardo as the best-selling Lambo ever.

It goes without saying that Lamborghini is regarded as one of the most prestigious auto brands in the world, so it really doesn’t have much use for commercials. If the name of the game is fostering brand awareness, Lamborghini doesn’t need that.

Yet there it was, the new Lamborghini Huracan , being filmed running around some city streets, which looks to be a commercial shoot in plain view of pedestrians. That’s awesome and all, especially since it just made its debut a little over a month ago, but the big deal is that this is the first time we actually get to see the Huracan in its natural element.

Normally, things like this go unnoticed without us even blinking an eyelash, but exceptions are certainly made for cars like the Huracan. Add to that the fact that it’s sporting an orange hue that’s similar to what we first saw with the Aventador a few years back, and we can’t help but stare and drool.

More importantly, watching the video and hearing that throaty growl of the Huracan makes us believe that we haven’t seen the best of this new Lambo yet.

Count your blessings if you’ve been lucky enough to see the Lamborghini Veneno in person. Seeing as there are only three of these babies in existence, it’s a quite a sight to behold.

Better yet, count yourself really lucky if you just happen to have the financial freedom to afford one, kind of like one Kris Singh, who recently took delivery of the second Veneno in his own home on Miami Beach.

It’s become abundantly clear to a lot of people that the Veneno isn’t your ordinary Lamborghini , as if using the word ’ordinary’ to describe Lamborghini is already enough of a stretch as it is. But Singh, who is a manager of a private investment firm, isn’t your ordinary guy, either. The man clearly has the money to pay for a $4.1 million, even if his taste in the Veneno leaves a little to be desired.

Still and all, the mere fact that he had the Veneno delivered personally to his front door is worthy of being documented, which the folks over at duPont Registry were more than happy to do.

And you know what? The video also offers a nice look into the kind of customization — or lack there of — Singh put into his new Veneno before having it delivered to his house.

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!

2014 has started "in style" for Justin Bieber; he’s having problems with his neighbors and he’s almost been arrested for cocaine possession, and now the pop star is into even more trouble.

Police officers in Miami confirmed that the 19-year-old singer was arrested for drag racing. According to the police report, Bieber was racing a yellow Lamborghini Gallardo (image above) around 4:09 this morning against a red Ferrari . Both drivers were arrested and the two cars were towed.

That’s not where the fun stops. Bieber also failed a field sobriety test, so he was hauled off to the Miami-Dade County jail for a breathalyzer test. We have to remind you that Bieber is only 19 years old — 21 is the legal drinking age in Florida — and the test must come back with a blood-alcohol content level of less than 0.02 percent, or he can face a six-month license suspension. For the drag-racing offense, he can receive a jail sentence of up to six months, a fine of $500 to $1,000, and a one-year license suspension.

Of course, we don’t any judge to throw the book at "The Bieb," as Bieber’s lawyers will likely get him off with just a fine and a license suspension. But, do you think this will stop him for making the same mistake again? We think not!

At least we can all get a good look at his rather awkward happiness in his mugshot (above).

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 Urus

Ahh...the Lamborghini Urus. Long been rumored, but has yet to fully materialize. That’s been the case for the past few years, or at least back when Lamborghini first introduced the concept at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show.

Since then, we’ve heard very little of Lamborghini’s production plans for the SUV . That is until the North American International Auto Show earlier this month when Lambo CEO Stephan Winkelmann finally gave some indication as to what the company had in store for the Urus.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Winkelmann indicated that the company expects to introduce the Urus in 2017, pointing out that with the luxury SUV market continuing to grow, Lambo will have to bring its own baby to the party if it wants to get a piece of the market.

Well, look at that. Straight from the horse’s mouth. Not that it adds grains more of confidence in us. After all, 2017 is still a long ways away and there’s still a lot that could happen before that year arrives. Who knows, maybe the luxury SUV market craters before that and the Urus turns into the SUV-that-never-was.

But none of that matters now and we’re prepared to take Winkelmann’s timeline with more than a grain of salt. That’s how excited we are to see the Urus in production guise. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that Lamborghini feels the same way.

It’s saying all the right things, but at the end of the day, we’re not going to be excited until we see a production Urus in the flesh.

If there’s one word people most associate with Vorsteiner, it’s "reliable." After all, the tuning company has, time and again, built some of the most impressive kits for exotic cars on its side of the world.

It’s work on the Lamborghini Gallardo is particularly impressive and with the Italian supercar now on its last legs, Vorsteiner is giving it the proper send-off, thanks to the upgrades of its Renazzo program.

We actually saw the Renazzo appear as the "Renazzo-V" back in 2012 and now, we’re treated with even more spellbinding changes, specifically the revised front fascia that now comes with a 2-by-2 carbon composite pre-impregnated construction with different floating dual aero fins. A new honeycomb mesh grille set was also installed. You’re not going to see them from afar, but take a closer look and you’ll notice the unmistakable difference in aesthetic and aerodynamic appeal of the Gallardo .

Taking all the changes, Vorsteiner accomplishes its goal of using the Gallardo Super Trofeo race car as its inspiration. And as the proverbial cherry on top of the sundae, the aftermarket company also installed one of its fancy rims in the form of a set of Special Edition Forged VSE-001 one-piecers that customers can order with a variety of finishes.

There are no performance upgrades of note, so we assume that this Gallardo has a stock 5.2-liter V-10 that produces 540 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque.

But the best part about the Renazzo program is something that hasn’t even arrived yet. According to Vorsteiner, more upgrades are in store, eliciting cheers from all of us who already think the world of the aftermarket company.

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.
