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.

Lamborghini Gallardo was unveiled in 2003 and during its decade-long run, it was Lamborghini ’s sales leader. Now — on November 25th. 2013 — ten years later, it’s time to say good-bye to an Icon in the supercar world, as the last Gallardo rolled off the production line.

The final Gallardo was number 14,022, and it was an LP 570-4 Spyder Performante variant draped in a Rosso Mars hue. The model will go to an unnamed private collector who will receive his car in the upcoming weeks.

To understand what a successful car the Gallardo was, you have to know that during its entire lifespan, Lamborghini sold a total of 30,000 units; nearly half of those were Gallardos. Also, before the Gallardo rolled into showrooms, the company sold a total of 250 units per year. The Gallardo’s presence drove sales numbers up to a total of 2,000 units per year.

With the Gallardo making its triumphant exit, Lambo will now focus on the supercar’s successor, which will be called either the Cabrera or Huracan.

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.

Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

Let’s take a little break from the auto show debuts for a second and focus on the latest spy shots of the upcoming Lamborghini Cabrera . Our spy shooters managed to catch the new Cabrera sitting in a parking lot. and as you can see, it has finally rid itself of that nasty black camouflage. Now all that obscures our view of it is that psychedelic camouflage, which does little to hide all the sexy details of this new Lambo.

We expect Lamborghini to reveal the new Cabrera at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show , and it will offer some major updates when compared to the Gallardo — the model it will replace.

On top of being lighter than the Gallardo , it will also carry a revised V-10 engine that we expect to deliver around 600 horsepower.

Rumors suggest that it will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.2 seconds and will hit a top speed of 186 mph in its base version. More powerful variants will also come at a later date, pushing it past the 200 mph barrier.

While the world is preparing for the launch of the new Lamborghini Cabrera , which is the successor to the Gallardo , German tuner, xXx Performance, decided to offer toss the Gallardo a new kit as a going-away present.

The kit is based on a 2005 Gallardo , and it’s all about transforming the Italian supercar into a real beast. For this the tuner updated the 5.0-liter, V-10 engine with an updated ECU, special carbon air-boxes and a sports exhaust system. With all these changes the engine will now deliver a total of 560 horsepower — up from its standard 512 horsepower — but the tuner also offers three stages of twin-turbo upgrades that will increase the engine’s output to anywhere between 850 and 1,200 horsepower.

Along with the engine upgrades, the tuner also installed a body kit that starts with LSD gull-wing doors and continues with numerous elements made in carbon fiber. The car is wrapped in a special dull black or silver foil combined with neon orange for the side skirts, the inner edges of the front air ducts and the roof edge.

We’ve caught the upcoming Lamborghini Cabrera — the successor to the Gallardo — testing plenty of times before. Unfortunately, each time we only managed to get still shots of it.

Today, savvy YouTube user Monsterchannel24 managed to catch the upcoming supercar testing on the Nurburgring , and for the first time, you can also hear the the engine’s awesome sound — we believed this engine will be a naturally aspirated, 5.2-liter V-10.

This engine will deliver somewhere in the 600-horsepower area, making the Cabrera more powerful and quicker than the current Gallardo. Rumors suggest that it will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.2 seconds and will hit a top speed of 186 mph. For comparison’s sake, the 2013 Gallardo LP550-2 hits 62 mph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph.

We expect to see the Cabrera hit the show circuit sometime next year.

Until then, enjoy this great video taken at sunset.

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.

It looks like Lamborghini learned nothing from all the critics the Veneno coupe received ever since its official launch and decided to still offer a roadster version of this rather strange supercar. Today we bring you what appears to be the first leaked images of the new Veneno Roadster and yes, is still as ugly as the coupe, despite the cool red exterior paint.

The roadster version will be equipped with the same carbon fiber exterior kit and will be offered with no roof, because it looks like the company wants to offer its customers "an intense driving experience." The model will only be equipped with a rollover bar and a pat on the back.

Unlike the Veneno Coupe, the roadster version will be built in nine units. Each will be priced at £3.3 million - or about $5,3 million an the current exchange rates. The color you see here is called "Rosso Veneno" and will be exclusively offered for the roadster version. Don’t worry, if you don’t like it you can still choose between a wide range of exterior paints.

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.
