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.

Until recently, the best place to spot supercars was the principality of Monte Carlo on the southern coast of France. Dubai has, in recent years, seen a huge inflow of high-performance sports cars and exclusive hypercars.

So much so that even the local police now roam in their very own high-power crowd pullers. The Dubai police department recently acquired a McLaren MP4-12C , adding to their fleet of Mustangs , Corvettes , Mercedes , Veyrons and Lamborghinis . Just imagine cruising through your local streets and suddenly seeing a Lambo with red and blues flashing behind you — now that’s some scary stuff.

The official video confirming the McLaren MP4-12C being added to the Dubai PD’s fleet is nothing short of glamorous. We still doubt that the Dubai police force will actually use these cars, the MP4 included, for anything besides gratuitous publicity.

While Lamborghini failed to offer us an in-depth look on the new Aventador LP720-4 50° Anniversario , Youtube user Saabkyle04 had the chance to get up close and personal with the new supercar and shot a very cool video of the most extreme Aventador up to this point.

The video includes start up shots, performance and fuel economy figures, the occasional track data, and build quality. You will also learn about all the exterior and the interior features, so that when you have $500k ready in your pocket, all you’ll have to do is go to your local dealership and buy the car.

And of course the video could not be complete with all those cool rev and exhaust notes with both interior and exterior perspectives.

As a reminder, the Aventador LP720-4 50° Anniversario is powered by a 6.5 liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 720 horsepower - an increase of 20 horsepower over the base car. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph.

Can you believe that in just one week since its online debut, the new Lamborghini Huracan already received two upgrade kits? The first one was announced by DMC Tuning , while the second one comes from Oakley Design. Of course they are both virtual, but both are showing the amazing tuning capacities of the new Huracan supercar.

According to Oakley Design this is just an initial design they are offering for the Huracan, but it will be tweaked, so most likely the final car will look a little different than this.

The tuner brags it placed orders for two Lamborghini Huracan supercars, so the new tuning kit will most likely be applied to these two cars. However, until we’ll have the chance to see the final tuning kit, Oakley needs to go and see the new Huracan during a private unveiling on January 15, 2014.

What is the best way to finish a year? With a very cool test drive involving two of the most powerful supercars currently available on the market: a Lamborghini Aventador Coupe and an Aventador Roadster .

The idea belong to the British magazine AutoCar - which is at its second test of this kind. If you remember, in the first one, it wanted to see which of the two versions can fly . This second test is a little bit more concise as it involves a full length challenge: AutoCar wanted to see how far they can jump, how hard they can drift and how fast they really are.

So, what do you think, which of the two versions is the best on the test track? Check out the video to see if you are right and if you guessed the winner! Of course, do not forget to turn up the volume, really high!

Underground Racing is a renowned name in the tuner supercar scene. Their newest creation is based on the 2007 Lamborghini Gallardo with a twin-turbocharger kit installed for additional poke. The all-wheel drive Gallardo puts down 1850 horsepower at the wheels with lots of pops and bangs and screeching tires.

Unlimited 500+, a drag race organized by folks at Dragtimes in Greece hosted all high performance tuned supercars from Eurasia and the U.S. The event also saw the current ultimate record holder- a Nissan GT-R Switzer Goliath with 1700 horsepower which set a record 250 mph (403 kph) at the mile marker. It completed the sprint in just 22.602 seconds.

In Greece, the Lamborghini Gallardo Nera Underground Racing R2/Altechno raced to the mile marker in just 22.352 seconds at over 260 mph setting a new world record.

Now that we’ve already seen the first official images of the new Lamborghini Huracan , one thing will happen for sure: there will also be a Roadster version. Of course that its official debut is still years away, but imagining how it will look like wasn’t hard at all, so today we prepared a first set of renderings for you.

As you probably expect it, the future Huracan Roadster will look pretty much identical to the coupe version, except of course its roof that we expect to be identical to what we have seen in the Aventador Roadster . This means that the Huracan Roadster will get a two-piece roof made entirely from carbon fiber that can be stored in the luggage compartment. Unlike the coupe version, the Huracan Roadster will also get a redesigned rear pillar for a better support of the new, removable roof.

Everything else will be kept identical to the coupe version, including the engine found under the hood: a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 610 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 413 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm.

Expect the new Huracan Roadster to be unveiled almost one year after the coupe version arrives on the market, so, most likely U.S. customers will be able to drive it sometime during the 2016 model year.

Until Lamborghini decides to bring a SV (SuperVeloce) version for its Aventador supercar, the guys over DMC decided to develop their own SV version for the supercar, except that for them "SV" stands for "Special Version".

The new tuning kit is called "LP988 Edizione-GT" and, as you probably have guessed it, "988" indicated the incredible amount of power found under the hood: 988 horsepower. According to the tuner this is the "Stage 3" upgrade kit offered for the Aventador, and it expects to be as successful as both the Molto Veloce and the LP900 SV Limited Edition announced last December.

DMC got its design inspiration from the Veneno supercar unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, and, while the LP988 Edizione-GT won’t be as expensive as the Lamborghini supercar, it surely be equally crazy.

While DMC kept this a secret for now, we expect the LP988 Edizione-GT to have been specially developed for some rich guys in Dubai or China.

Not so long ago, Lamborghini revealed its Gallardo replacement in the form of the Huracan LP610-4 . The new supercar from Lamborghini looks strikingly similar to the larger and more powerful Aventador. But, the Aventador LP700-4 is a thing of beauty and hence we have no problems with the Huracan sharing a family face.

Within days of its unveiling, the internet was flooded with artist renderings of the Huracan in various configurations including a Spyder version. What we have here is Evren Milanos idea of the Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera. The artists even goes on to predict the engine specifications adding the suffix "LP640-4".

These renderings seem very close to the real thing. I personally like the one in yellow. Anyways, the artist has added a large rear spoiler and full body kit to the Huracan. Wheels are of a different variety. The front bumper gets a more pronounced splitter element while at the rear is diffuser for added downforce. We also like the idea of a roof scoop.

Although, Lamborghini is yet to release details about the lightweight Superleggera version, Evren Milano’s design gives us an idea of how attractive and exciting it can be. That said, the Superleggera will be lighter and more powerful than the standard Huracan. Hence, the predicted 640 horsepower seems realistic.

As of late, Santa has oftentimes found himself in other ride besides his typical sleigh drawn by Rudolph and gang. This year, we caught Saint Nick in this Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder , as he cruised through Los Angeles, whishing everyone — even Freddy Krueger — a Merry Christmas.

We are not talking about any kind of Gallardo Spyder, but one that so happens to have a Christmas tree sticking from the convertible top. Of course Santa’s trusty little elf around to drive him through the streets of LA.

This video was the brainchild of the guys over at Midway Car Rental and Beverly Wilshire Hotel, and the folks in LA seemed to enjoy it. Of course it was just another publicity stunt, but it always nice to see the funny ways people find to wish you a Merry Christmas!

Enjoy the video and Merry Christmas to you all!

People around the world cook different animals and birds around the holidays, but no mater the meat you need to prepare, cooking can sometimes be very difficult. However, Youtube user Shmee150 found a very special way of cooking the Christmas turkey that is right up our alley.

He makes use of a car, of course, but not an ordinary car. He uses a Lamborghini Aventador with some cool updates from Oakley Design. Oakley’s updates include a full titanium exhaust system that adds another 60 horsepower to the car’s final output and a new rear spoiler that improves the car’s aerodynamic features.

Okay, so how do these updates help cook a turkey? Well, thanks the new exhaust system, the Aventador literally spits fire, so Shmee150 held the turkey to the flames as they shot from the tailpipe.

Of course, we are pretty sure that the turkey he ate in the end of the video is not the one cooked with the Aventador’s exhaust, especially considering the Aventaor isn’t the cleanest-running car on the planet at 370 g/km of CO2 emissions, but the idea behind this video is pretty cool.
