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 are the chances of seeing a Lamborghini model passing by you during an ordinary day? It really depends on the city you live in, we guess, but on a whole the chances are pretty slim. Getting the chance to see more than 100 Lamborghinis from all eras passing by is really a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The lucky videographer that made the above clip was lucky enough to be standing on a hairpin turn on the Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Grande Giro route, and he got a lifetime worth of Lambo looks in just a single video.

So, kick back, turn up the volume, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this 14-minute parade of automotive excellence as it makes its way around a rain-soaked corner. Make sure to pay close attention to each passing model, as there are some fairly rare models, and even a few classic examples.

Our spy photographers managed to catch the upcoming Lamborghini Cabrera out for a testing sessions around Nürburgring. Lamborghini tried to avoid the prying eye of the press by taking it out very early in the morning, but our guys were there and managed to take some of the clearest photos of the Cabrera yet.

The upcoming Cabrera — the successor for the Gallardo — is expected to be unveiled sometime in early 2014. As usual for Lambo, the Cabrera name is inspired by a famous Spanish fighting bull, and the new supercar is rumored to offer some new features and plenty of updated technology.

It will be built on the same same lightweight, carbon-fiber monocoque as the Aventador , making it lighter than the current Gallardo . Under the hood, the Cabrera will likely get a supercharged V-10 engine that produces nearly 600 horsepower.

We expect to see the Lamborghini Cabrera will be revealed in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show .

Updated 09/24/2013: The upcoming Cabrera was caught testing one more time around Nurbrugring, so we now have more spy shots for you.

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.

when it comes to Russians and their supercars — or any car, for that matter — we all know they can get a little over the top. Okay, maybe a lot over the top... Lets take the guy in the above video who decided to push his Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 updated by Underground Racing to its limits.

This bad-boy pumps 2,005 horsepower from its V-10 engine and can hit a as high as 250 mph in a one-mile-long straight stretch. The ugly truth about extreme tuning like this one, is that it comes with plenty of risk, and this dude learned just how risky is was in the above video.

He launched his Gallardo down a one-mile stretch and hit a monstrous 250 mph, but just as he crossed the finish line, the engine went up in flames. The timing of the ignition was so impeccable that it seems like this was just a case of really cool special effects.

After the fire was extinguished, the Gallardo looked pretty bad, but what can you do. Great results sometimes call for sacrifices, right? Just light a cigarette, have a chat and things will somehow fall into place — at least that’s is how this guy handled the situation.

When it comes to the supercars in the Dubai, we have heard just about every crazy story that we can think of. The latest one includes this new record-breaking Lamborghini Aventador , made out of gold and gems.

This shiny Aventador features 55 pounds of gold, and is currently on auction at a price of $7.5 million, with $650,000 of tht money earmarked for charity. With that massive price, this is set to be the most expensive Lamborghini in the world.

We are talking of course about a 1:18 scale model, carved from a 1,100-pound block of solid gold. The model is currently on display in a Dubai showroom, and for security reasons, it is currently just a prototype made from a less-expensive material. The fortunate winner of the bid will have the opportunity to customize the scale model according to his personal desire.

Despite not being a road-ready model, this Aventador is already listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most expensive model car.

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.

The Lamborghini Veneno made its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and shocked pretty much everyone, but not everyone took too kindly to it. Now, you’ll get a chance to see if this is either the best or worst Lamborghini you’ve ever seen, as Lambo will display the supercar at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend.

Prior to it hitting the Pebble Beach Concourse, the Veneno will make its North American debut on August 16th, at The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering , which will also bring into focus classic Lamborghini models, like the 1963 350 GTV. Veneno’s unveiling in Monterey is part of Lamborghini’s celebration of its 50th anniversary.

"We’re celebrating 100 years of innovation in half the time – what better way than by showing the first Lamborghini ever built alongside our latest racing prototype and road-going super sports car - the Veneno."

The $4 million supercar will be delivered to its lucky owners later this year.

Launched just a few day ago, the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Squadra Corse has already had its first extreme testing, as the folks over sportauto.de pushed the newest Gallardo to its limit. Test driver Christian Gebhardt was behind the wheel and he looks rather comfortable in the seat of the speedy Lambo .

We would be quite comfy too, as the new Squadra Corse is powered by the same V-10 engine used in the Gallardo Super Trofeo racecar, which delivers 570 horsepower — 10 horsepower more than the base Gallardo . This is enough power to sprint the new supercar to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, to 124 mph in just 10.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 198 mph. This hopped-up Gallardo checks in at $259,100.

Enjoy the video and do not forget to turn up the volume really high so you can hear the V-10 engine in all its glory!
