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.

When Lamborghini unveiled the new Aventador Roadster , it described the car’s two-piece roof as very easy to install. In fact, the official announcement says that each of the two 13-pound carbon-fiber pieces can be attached and removed in just a "matter of seconds."

The question that begs to be answered is “in a matter of seconds for whom: a Lamborghini engineer or a regular customer?” We think the above video will give you an idea of what to really expect.

During the car’s official presentation, Lamborghini wanted to show its customers how to install this wonder-roof. The problem is that it took a Lamborghini rep about two minutes to install it! Granted, he was talking while working, but he has been trained to install the roof. Now, imagine someone with absolutely no training installing this roof and you can see how it could take about two minutes. That’s a real problem if you happen to live in a place where torrential and sudden rainfall is the norm, like London or South Florida.

Nevertheless, we need to admire the absolute beauty in this masterpiece of a vehicle. We’re also pretty sure that it’ll take a few dozen practice installations before a new owner can install the roof "in a matter of seconds." One thing is for sure, the Aventador’s roof is easier to install than the soft top on the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster . That process seems to require two people, a sledgehammer, hope, prayers, and a few choice four-letter words to accomplish.

Check out top-installation process on the Murcielago in the video after the jump.

Our favorite YouTube user has just shot another incredible video: Valentino Balboni behind the wheel of a matte blue Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 Superveloce at Monza. We’re not talking about a genuine SV model, but a first generation Murcielago with a full conversion. The car is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox, a Tubi Style exhaust system, and a small rear wing.

This video includes multiple start ups, revs, accelerations on the track, and a few launches. You will also be able to enjoy incredible engine sound, so don’t forget to turn up your volume!

As a reminder, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce is powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 670 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds and can hit an incredible top speed of 212 mph.

DMC Tuning’s current program for the Lamborghini Aventador , the one billed as the LP900 Molto Veloce , is already a barn burner in its own right.

Apparently, there’s a sequel coming and looking at the teaser photo that the German tuner dropped, it appears like it’s going to be a noteworthy successor to the LP900 Molto Veloce. DMC is doing a wonderful job keeping the full details close to its chest, but there’s something about this teaser that seems to suggest that it’s going to be a completely different program with a different body kit.

Look at the front bumper and you can’t help but wonder if there are design cues from the one-off Aventador J sprinkled in there. The light setup also seems to suggest that there’s something different about it.

The good news is that we won’t have to wait too long to find out what DMC Tuning has in store for the Lamborghini supercar. The official release of the program has been scheduled for December 12, 2012, so keep your eyes and ears open for the date.

Something about this teaser makes us think that we’re going to be blown away with the DMC’s sequel program for the mighty Aventador.

Back in May, Wheelsandmore was unveiling a very cool 777 HP Rabbioso package based on the Lamborghini Aventador . Now the tuner turns its attention on the Italian supercar once again.

The car is covered in a very cool Bianco paint combined with black racing stripes and numerous elements in carbon look. The car rides on a new set of 6 Sporz ultralight forged wheels with an individualized design and matte-black powder-coated centers. The outside of the rims is painted in the same Bianco shade as the rest of the body. The front wheels measure in at 9.5-by-20 inches and the rear wheels come in at 12.5-by-21 inches.

Under the hood Wheelsandmore added in a software upgrade that takes its output up to 551 kW (777 horsepower) and 760 Nm (560 pound-feet) of torque. That’s a 77-horsepower and 51-pound-feet increase over the base Aventador.

While this package offers no exterior upgrades, the tuner is offering up numerous optional carbon-fiber elements, including: rear diffuser, rear wing, 5-piece engine compartment covers, trunk compartment cover, front spoiler, mirror caps and stands and a 10-piece air intake.

The entire kit, excluding the exterior modifications, comes in at €27,221 ($34,793 at the current exchange rates).

Miami residents definitely have something to smile about: the new Lamborghini Aventador Roadster will be making its US debut on November 12th at the local Lamborghini Miami dealer. Lamborghini will then start a presentation tour of the car, with the next stop being Los Angeles.

European customers will benefit from multiple showcases in the coming weeks at the company’s factory, but those are just for small groups - as usual.

The first details offered by Lamborghini on the upcoming Aventador Roadster: "The new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is crafted from an ultra-rigid carbon fiber monocoque for strength with light weight. Its shatteringly powerful 6.5 liter V12 engine drives through all four wheels. Yet it also offers the thrill of open-top motoring, with the roof down, all the sensations of a high performance sports car are amplified - including the soulful sound of that 691 HP engine. Our most powerful Roadster ever."

Stay tuned as we will be on hand for the release on November 12, 2012!

You can never get tired of somebody who does his job better than most people. In this particular case, Nino Batista has made a habit of creating photo-shoots that highlight his skills as a photographer, but also puts his subjects in an impressive light.

This photo-shoot features such subjects as the Lamborghini Murcielago and sexy hottie Kasie Wyland. The exotic Murcielago is actually owned by a customer who had his exotic customized by Autodynamica Performance.

The combination of the tall and long-legged brunette with yellow Italian supercar is something that’s just too good to pass up. To his credit, Batista managed to even make the ratio of hotness between the girl and the supercar balance out in the photos.

Some cases, you can’t take your eyes off of the car. Other cases, it’s the girl. In this instance, you can’t take your eyes off of both. That’s a credit to the man taking the pictures.

When you’re a photographer plying your craft in the auto industry, it must be a sweet job getting some alone time with some of the finest supercars on the planet. So excuse us if we have a slight tinge of professional envy when it comes to photography studios like ItzKirb Photography.

In one of ItzKirb’s more recent photo spreads, the man was able to get a hold of a GoldRush Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and a Ferrari F430 . Pretty sweet, right?

But what if we told you that they also have Grace, a voluptuous and downright flirtatious model that bared a lot of skin in the photos. There aren’t a whole lot of explanations on this one because the pictures pretty much speak for themselves.

Two supercars and one hot model equates to a photo spread that’s certainly worth your time. So have at it and check out ItzKirb Photography’s new spread in the gallery below.

This photo spread is all about two things. Whether your preference is on the black Lamborghini Murcielago LP-640 or the sassy model Veronica Popa, what we do know is that you can’t go wrong with either.

Victora Popa, for her part, isn’t exactly a newbie when it comes to posing beside some of the finest exotics in the land. She’s done previous work on a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Porsche 911 so it’s easy to see why she seems so at ease beside the equally smoking hot raging bull.

The stunning dark-haired beauty is not one to be missed, especially when captured behind the lens of Rattanchandanj. You put all these elements together in one photo shoot and the results certainly speak for themselves.
